    Altered Jenga Blocks ~ Open Theme ~ Due September 21, 2019

    Due Date: September 21, 2019
    Withdraw by Date: Anytime - just please communicate
    Number of Blocks: 3-6
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Media: open media on a Jenga block

    Altered Jenga Blocks ~ Open Theme

    For this swap, you will alter Jenga blocks (or same-sized wooden blocks: approximately 3 inches tall, 1 inch wide, 1.5 cm deep), using any media on it that you choose.

    Some pinterest inspiration

    A few examples of mine:

    PIF Altered Jenga Block_for LindyLu_2018.jpg
    PIF Altered Jenga Block_for nightowl_too_2018.jpg

    Swap Requirements:

    • Altered wooden blocks: Jenga or same-sized (see dimensions above). You can add to the block (top, bottom, or both), but it needs to have the Jenga-sized dimensions as a starter.
    • 3:3, 4:4, 5:5, or 6:6. When you sign up, let me know how many you are making. Host gifts are never required. Please don't feel as though you have to make an extra to participate. However, I'll cherish them if you do.
    • Media is open. You can draw, collage, paint, add embellishments, dangles, whatever you choose...
    • Attach a way for them to hang. I use an eye hook with ribbon or string through it.
    • The front side must be fully decorated. The back can be simply painted or covered in decorative paper. Please sign your work somewhere on your block. Please also add your username to a tag or label included with each piece, if you don't sign with your user name.
    • If you need to withdraw, just communicate. Players who disappear will receive neutral itrader.


    Mailing:

    • Protect your blocks in some sort of protective plastic, and package them securely in a small bubble wrap envelope. I will attempt to re-use the envie when I send returns.
    • Please include a large label with your name and address clearly written on it.
    • Postage: Artists must pay for their own return postage; either well concealed cash or US stamps. Include the amount it cost you to send to me. It looks like postage will start at $3.66 for domestic mailing. From what I could figure out online, it looks like international starts at $10.50 for a bubble mailer. I'll return unused money back to you in the form of postage, unless you request otherwise.
    • Please request my address via private message when you are ready to send your artwork.
    • Artwork that arrives late, will be returned at your expense.


    Feel free to share your artwork in the thread. It is always inspiring to see the work of others.

    When you receive your returns, please leave itraders for me and rep points for the artists whom you receive work from.

    Those are super cute. Where do you find the wood blocks?

    I am really interested, but lurking for now.

    Welcome lurkers
    SunTrade, I purchased a used box of Jenga blocks on Amazon (I think). The dollar general also had a version of the game. Th block dimensions are a little different, but close enough. If you want, I can send you some also. Just pm me, if you'd like me to.

    I added a few example pics in the first post. Also, there is a link to a pinterest page which has some more inspiration.

    I am lurking on this one. I have so many chunky embellishments and I love the idea of using them but I'm just not sure. I'm doing the altered altoid tin swap and if it goes well, I'll be here for jenga blocks. I do love looking at the ideas!!
