New Participant: You will have to make a mini handmade journal with a minimum of 10 pages (max. size is 5x7, around 2 - 3 ounces) that will be sent to your partner. Make sure your name, username and address is on the last page so it can be returned to you when it is full.

This book is going to be used for MIXED MEDIA so please make sure that your book is made of a sturdy paper that can hold up to some beating.

You can decorate the first spread of pages (please use a previous swap's prompt) if you choose, but it's not mandatory.

Rating is set at 4.95. I will check profiles and I reserve the right to ban anyone I consider a risk: unexplained 1s or 3s in the last 6 months, anyone who hasnรขโ‚ฌโ„ขt been active for the last 3 months, No newbies (anyone on swap-bot less than 6 months). If you are in one of the above mentioned categories but feel you should be allowed to join, message me.

Returning Participant: Decorate and send out your mini-book from the last round (R29 theme was: Music. Remember, the journal GOING OUT in this round should have the music prompt).

When you receive your mini-book from your partner in this round, you will be required to complete one (1) full page spread (one left side and one right side) based on the prompt given. Don't forget to add your username, date and country to your layout somewhere. You will then hold on to the book until the next partner is assigned and send it to them.

When the book is full you will need to return the book back to it's original owner. - Message me about the process so you can get your next journal to work on!

PROMPT: Geometric. Get out your ruler or your stencils! Circles, squares, triangles, get inspired by shapes! Remember: this prompt will go in the book you RECEIVE this round!! Don't like the current theme? use an old one that's not in the book yet!

Rating: if you receive a book from your partner with one full spread decorated (one left side, one right side) in a reasonable amount of time, please rate a 5. Only rate a 1 if you did not receive anything.

Please comment below with the journal owner's name/ID. I keep track of the journals, but confirmation (for me and the owner) is always nice :) Thanks!

Making sure I understand - since I am a new participant, I would create a journal, then do a spread based on a previous prompt and send it to my partner? Then when I receive a journal, I do the geometric prompt and hang on to the journal until the next round?

Can I just check before I make my journal, when you say minimum 10 pages, do you mean double pages to do 10 spreads? Thanks :-)

Exactly right @Bohochick And @secretterrabite 10 pages total is fine (5 spreads) - in fact, the less pages you make it - the faster it will fill up and you'll get it back. But do whatever seems right to you - it is YOUR book! : ) Excited to have some more new participants!

Ah! I wish I could join this but between work and travel next week, it's cutting it too close for me. Please let me know when the next one posts so I can hopefully join in then?
