Pay it Forward Art making Project for 2014

I know it's been a while since I have written anything but I took a break from printmaking. My friend told me about a new project for 2014 and thought "Yeah , why not" so am following the rules.
Should you be interested do the same and lets create some fun and have something to look for in the mail at the end of the year.
Below are the instructions. Enjoy.

Here’s the deal:

Step 1 Copy&Paste this (see below) in your latest blog post
* Pay It Forward Art-making Project for 2014 *
I promise to make a small work of art for the first four people who comment on this post and say “YES, I WANT TO BE IN THIS”. A ‘like’ alone is not enough of a commitment, nor is a comment about thinking Pay It Forward is a great idea.

You must in turn post this on your blog and make something for the person from whom you got this (that’s me) plus the first four who comment on your blog asking to play.

The rules are simple:
– It has to be your work, made by you, and the recipient must receive it before 2014 ends.
РIt can be anything art-based: a drawing/illustration or a conceptual work of art, a photograph, a knitted item, cross-stitch, paper mach̩ Рor anything in between.

I’m paying this forward thanks to  Di  Marina  who picked it up from JackOudyn. Yes, you can be on each other’s pay it forward lists.

PS. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t an artist, try something out, google/ YouTube how to make stuff, step out of those boundaries.
Step 2 For the first four people who comment on your blog entry saying they want to participate, plus the author,you will do an art trade with them that must be completed by December 31st 2014. I would count as the first person, so technically you only need another four. If you find your friends are keen, you can do as many as you want. Similarly, if you do not get four comments within, say, one week, simply swap with those who do want to take part.
Step 3 All forms of art count including creative writing , photography, digital, anything goes! I’ll leave this up until next Monday,Feb.17. You’ll find my email at “about me” so you can let me know your postal address.
