Were you in the "Artsy Valentine" swap? If so you should have received some art pieces for this swap.

If you were not in the "My Artsy Valentine" swap- I hope you play anyway

Swap Guidelines
Use Louvre or Orsay Art to alter. Choose pieces of art from these museum/s and make it new again by altering the piece. For example: Renoir's- Ballerinas (Orsay), might be altered with angel wings and high heel shoes or Cezanne's (Orsay)– Apples and biscuits, might be altered by a vintage lady juggling them. Famous Painting like the Mona Lisa, Venus De Milo, Liberty leading people.... so many pieces to use. Sound simple, not really, it is a challenge to turn a masterpiece into something different. It Can be funny or serious.
**** have fun! get a cup of coffee, sit and enjoy the websites provided. Choose art that speaks to you.

Can't go to Paris ..... Take a virtual tour here....

I would love to do this swap. Being from Australia it takes some time for the mail but another issues is that I do not have access to American postage stamps.

Kind regards

Karen

Do not worry about postage. i will pay it for now until you get established in ATC 4 All. Once you are able to do swaps you can acquire American postage or dollars.
It does take 4-5 weeks to arrive in Texas from Australia. so you still have time. I will try to hook you up with some one to help you understand international trades.
