OPEN to beginner and experienced Art/Visual Journal-ers!! Lets Get Arty! Create one A5 sized art journal page (portrait or landscape, senders choice) for your partner, using any two of the following themes:

*Buttons and bows.

*Where I want to be in 5 years.

*Sharpie to the rescue!.


You can included writing and artwork with any kind of medium can be included: Stamping, Rub-Ons, Fibres, Pencil, Bling , splash some Paint, Markers, Pens, or go crasy with Magazine cut outs..

But please leave approximately 1 or 2 around the edge of the page without writing on it AS depending on the binding style the recipient uses, they may not be able to read it after they bind it. We will be running these regularly so we can all build up our journals with lots different themes, you can either add this page to your existing art journal or you can bind the pages together after a number of swaps!

Please include a note to your partner as to how u have interpreted the themes you have chosen for this page, and the swap name.

There is no correct way to journal and you don’t need to buy expensive supplies SO here a few jumping off points.
