Bmuse Art Swap #2

Black & Tan Collage Sheet Swap with Drawings for FREE STUFF!!

The basic rule is that you need to incorporate one of the images from my Black & Tan Collage or Transparency sheets into your artwork. There are 4 categories each with it's own deadline for art submissions and drawings. There will be a total of 8 drawings for $15.00 worth of FREE Bmuse Products - with 2 winners from each category. The winners are determined by a blind drawing of all entries in each category each piece of artwork you submit adds your name into that drawing. You can submit multiple pieces in different categories or in the same category. It also includes a 1 for 1 swap, meaning you will receive an equal # of art pieces from other artists for the art you submit. It is not necessary to sign up for these swaps your artwork submission will automatically enter you in the category it fits, but please be sure that the artwork that you send in has your name, category and email address on each piece. To qualify for the drawings your artwork must reach me by the dates given below.

NOTE: All artwork received will be scanned and posted onto the Bmuse site unless you specifically tell me otherwise. I will create gallery pages for each category with full artist credits.
