editing the send by date on this due to unexpected circumstances.....PLEASE send your journals by May 3rd.

I'm setting up an beginner friendly art journal swap, USA only. The international version is hosted by @Pyxidragon

No art-journal experience? No problem. Decorate a minimum of 50 pages of a journal with your choice of themes...ideas...etc. Throwing two stickers on a page is NOT art - journaling. You can use stickers as part of your journal page, but not as the only decoration.

The journal can be composition (the marble ones), sketch books, homemade, etc, but no smaller in size than 5x7 inches (12.7x17.75cm). The paper on composition books can be glued together to make it sturdier or have gesso applied. Or both if you so choose.

We're keeping the entries PG-13, but because this isn't based on your partner's profile, you can even start now.

This is a long-term swap with the sign-up on January 31st and the final day to send out on May 3rd. You'll have one partner. Because this will be time and labor intensive, I won't be able to angel, and while this is for beginners to art journaling, please have at least a 4.95 rating and at least 5 type 3 swaps.

If you really don't know where to start with Art Journaling, you can google it. I'm a beginner myself so really can't help you with ideas, but google has plenty of instructions, ideas, images, and inspiration.

That's a lotta pages for just a month and a few days to accomplish for a beginners art journal. Just a thought. Sounds fun though.

can we start with 25....I agree 50 is alot of pages, I would be afraid people would just race right through it and not do the best job they can do. this is a fun swap just to many pages to complete I think.

flowerlady57 01/20/2012 #

oh and maybe a little longer to complete.

ladywolfsong 01/21/2012 #

ok, after some thought and some suggestions, I have decided to extend the time for completion until March 21st
