This is the last* swap in our collab little art book series! If you missed it, we're making a little artbook, one folio at a time (Pt. 1, Pt. 2). We’ve been making 1 folio per swap, with different prompts each round. After this swap, we'll compile our folios and bind them into a booklet to keep.

Get a piece of cardstock 5"x7" in size and fold it in half. This will give you 4 pages, 3.5"x5" in size. The following 4 things need to be represented on your pages somehow.

  • wonder

  • yellow

  • transportation (modes)

  • cat

You can put one prompt on each page, double up on 2 pages, use one multiple times and the others once, etc. Just have all 4 present somehow. Treat each page separately as these could get stacked in the end and not be in order together (so a double page spread might get hosed).

The artwork you create on your pages needs to be in keeping with the group style: original cut & paste collage techniques. You're free to use other mediums in addition to collage as you wish.

Send your folded folio sheet to your partner along with some kind of label (loose), such as a slip of paper with your name/username on it or a sticky label - that way when they bind their booklet they can add it to a table of contents.

* This is the last planned swap in this series, but I'm open to hosting a makeup swap if people are interested. There were quite a few more people in the second round than the first. Comment and let me know if you're interested. I won't plan on hosting it unless I get some feedback.

@goosey noted, thanks!

@January thanks! There will be more. :D I'm thinking maybe future books will have one overall theme...or even a pick-your-own theme. We'll see!
