You will create an art journal with the challenges described below.
You can use any technique you feel comfortable with: photography, scrapbooking, hand-lettering/calligraphy, painting, drawing,… Try to mix techniques and don’t use just one style, because that can be very boring. Go creative and express yourself freely. I don’t expect everyone to be a Picasso or a Van Gogh, but don’t make something like it seems a 4-year-old has made it. Try to make something that is visually beautiful and fun to look at or read in. If you glue items, make sure to use a good glue so everything stays attached to the journal. You can use some stickers but don’t sticker slap.
The art journal?:
This can be store-bought as well as handmade. Just make sure it’s sturdy and the pages don’t fall out. You can also choose to use a binder and use pages to place inside. Just make sure the paper is sturdy enough and it doesn’t rip when you turn a page. When you buy a blank journal/binder with a cover which is just in one color or something that is a bit boring, then decorate it beautifully. The size of the journal has to be at least A5 (148mm x 210 mm or 5,8 x 8,3 inches). Make sure the journal holds enough pages to complete all the challenges. It’s at least one page a challenge. A side note if your swap partner is vegan or has a problem with it, don’t use leather or fur. This is just a matter of being respectful and understanding towards each other.
I will make this sender’s choice, as a journal is a very personal thing. But I want you to consider some things. Try to avoid things on the dislike list. But I want some tolerance from both parties. For example something your swap partner fears has to be avoided. I don’t want anyone traumatized by this swap. But I do ask to not rate someone down because you dislike a color or a certain art style. But as for the rest of the dislikes, try to use some common sense and do not upset your swap partner. But there also has to be some tolerance from the receiver, as this art journal is something personal. I will set a restriction on nudity and violence.
You must have a 4.98 rating. No recent or unexplained 1s or 3s. You must have done 25 type 3 package/craft swaps and have got a rating from them. And at least some of these swaps have to be more intense package/craft swaps, not just ATC’s. I will check profiles, if anything looks suspicious then I will remove you from the swap. Please no flakers! As this is a very intensive and time-consuming swap, make sure you can commit to it when you sign up and that you’ve enough time to complete it. I will provide enough time to finish this project.
