Handmade Art Journal Go Round R48
Swap Coordinator:gothbarbie (contact)
Swap categories: Art  Journals 
Number of people in swap:20
Type:Type 3: Package or craft
Rating requirement:4.97
Last day to signup/drop:January 25, 2020
Date items must be sent by:February 8, 2020
Number of swap partners:1

New Participant: You will have to make a mini handmade journal with about 10-14 pages (no smaller than 3x4 /max. size is 5x7, around 2 - 3 ounces) that will be sent to your partner. Make sure your name, username and address is on it somewhere so it can be returned to you when it is full.

Think FLAT and LIGHT - international shipping is much cheaper if you can mail as a letter!

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 using a previous 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: recent 1 or 3 ratings, history of late sends/resends, No newbies (anyone on swap-bot less than 6 months). 

Returning Participant: Decorate and send out your mini-book from the last round (R47 theme was: Autumnal Colors. Remember, the journal GOING OUT in this round should have the Autumnal Colors 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 if you are filling the last spread in a journal.

PROMPT: WORD(s). Carolyn Dube inspired this round (her artwork above). Some artists start off the year selecting a word to focus on, she selected a whole bunch! Your page can feature ONE word or many. Even a quote. Let's inspire each other : )   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!

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!
