This swap is for a Puzzle Collaboration, where each artist completes or alters two puzzle pieces each round, and sends them to their one partner. So this swap is a Multi Round (At least 6), and multi partner swap. This swap is for a 12 piece Collaboration puzzle, to be completed by different artists, two puzzle pieces to one partner, every other month/round, over the next year.

You will sign up every other month to participate, and Swap-bot will randomly assign you your partners for that round. You may get a send to or receive from partner more than once, as partners are randomly assigned by the bot.

To start the swap, I will send each participant a blank puzzle with 12 pieces, and on the backside of each puzzle, I will designate a Number. You will then alter the corresponding puzzle pieces for that round. For example, this month's puzzle pieces that we will alter and send to our partner will be puzzle piece Number 2 and piece Number 9. You can still participate and purchase the puzzle, even if you have missed some earlier rounds....you can just art on the rounds you have missed or see if someone will private swap with you. If you want to purchase a puzzle, just send me a message.

Each round we will be altering two different puzzle pieces. So each month, every person will send and receive the same puzzle piece numbers, until the whole puzzle has been completed. In the end, we will all share in making this fun collaboration puzzle project where each of us have a completed puzzle to keep, created from the many different artists.

To help cover the cost of the puzzles and shipping them to each of you, you agree to send me $1.70 thru PayPal or Venmo, or you may send postage. Please let me know if you need my email to use for Paypal or Venmo. You can send me unused US postage stamps for payment of your puzzle, if you would prefer. I will send you one of the 12 piece Inovart puzzles, sold on Amazon. I will mail you your puzzle to start working on, after I have received your Payment. Please include your user name, and given name, on your payment. I will not offer refunds or returns on purchased puzzles.

Here are some examples of Altered Puzzles:








You may create your art on each puzzle piece in any medium you wish, in any theme you wish. You may choose to complete these all at one time, in small batches or small groups, without reading your partner's profile, or you may complete each piece each round after you read your partners profile, the choice is yours. You may include embellishments or have 3D elements, but please make sure anything being adhered is glued down well, and that whatever you're adding does not block any of the other pieces from connecting to that puzzle piece...all the puzzle pieces need to fit in the puzzle unobstructed. Please mail your puzzle piece inside a Decorated card/envelope.

Have fun!
