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. Also keep it flat and easy to mail internationally -avoid big buttons, metal ring binding etc. those will add to the cost of mailing.

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 4.97. 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 hasn’t 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 (R35 theme was: Pocket. Remember, the journal GOING OUT in this round should have the Pocket 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. If you complete the last spread in a journal - please contact me, we'll set up a one-on-one swap to return to it's owner.

PROMPT: Floral. Flowers, wallpaper with floral images, rose perfume : ) 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!

Hello! Is this a newbie friendly swap?
I have only been art journaling since August, so I am still learning and trying to find my way. And the thought of working in someone else's journal is daunting but I would love to see some art journals in real life, so I am willing to dive in to the deep end if you guys don't mind me wearing life west and wings and like that thing on your nose too!? 😄

@JustMeCreating - Since you've been swapping here since 2015 and have many type 3 swaps under your belt, I wouldn't call you a newbie! If you're new to mixed media and art journaling this is a great place to practice and have some fun! Please do join us : )

@gothbarbie I may be a pro swapper, but I am still newbie in mixed media. But I love it! I am jumping in!
Thank you! 😄
