For this swap we will create 1 collage for 1 partner that is 4 x 4 inches in size. The theme will be FALL/AUTUMN. I've seen these 4 x 4 inch cards called artist tiles so call it what you want.

This is sender's choice but with consideration. What says fall to you? I think of leaves and the harvest and Halloween. Comment below whether you do or don't want or mind a Halloween themed card.

Create something wonderful and become part of a fabulous collaborative book. Consider signing your 4 x 4 inch square on the front as that the back will likely be glued to a backing later on.


This is the 3rd of 4 swaps of this type that will eventually be used to create a little accordion folded book of SEASONS. You can join the swap whether you want to create the book or not.

You can create any kind of book you want. Mine will be like this Accordion fold book. So, if our collages are 4 x 4 inches, then the scrapbook card stock could be cut and folded slightly larger to create that framed look.

Here's the accordion fold book with covers scrapbook style keepin' it easy!

Oooh. This one is nice and simple too

Here's a tentative schedule of events.

Page 1: Spring (April)
Page 2: Summer (June or July)
Page 3: Autumn (September or October)
Page 4: Winter (December or January)

I apologize to our southern hemisphere friends. I realize your seasons are opposite mine but in the end, you'll still have nice 4 x 4 inch paper tiles to create an accordion book - so consider joining.

Did you miss the SPRING or SUMMER swap? We have a forum discussion thread for anyone who misses one of these swaps. "I want more partners" - feel free to hook up with each other there to organize your own exchanges related to this swap or others.

Remember, send by the send date or contact your partner if you're going to be late. In addition, if the send by date falls on a date when your post office isn't open or you are away - try sending earlier than the send by date.

As summer into autumn slips
and yet we sooner say
"The Summer" than "The Autumn" lest
we turn the sun away.

I know this is a little late, and if my partner is already working on my tile than by all means continue, but given the choice I would rather a "autumn" themed tile than a "Halloween" themed tile. But no worries if my tile had already been created!

Lucky you @trula I have not started assembling! Just need to make a few small changes and you will have an Autumn theme sans Halloween! I'm glad I checked here before finishing up! ;)
