New Participant: You will have to make a mini handmade journal with a minimum of 10 pages (max. size is 5x7, around 2 - 3 ounces) that will be sent to your partner. Make sure your name, username and address is on the last page so it can be returned to you when it is full.

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 (please use a previous swap's prompt) if you choose, but it's not mandatory.

Rating is set at 4.9. I will check profiles and I reserve the right to ban anyone I consider a risk: unexplained 1s or 3s in the last 6 months, anyone who hasn’t been active for the last 3 months, No newbies (anyone on swap-bot less than 6 months). If you are in one of the above mentioned categories but feel you should be allowed to join, message me.

Returning Participant: Decorate and send out your mini-book from the last round (R21 theme was: Stencils. Remember, the journal GOING OUT in this round should have the STENCILS 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.

PROMPT: Recycle. Use the recycling symbol, or reuse some pieces of "trash" in your art (please keep it flat and clean!) or recycle an idea - be creative! 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!

Rating: if you receive a book from your partner with one full spread decorated (one left side, one right side) in a reasonable amount of time, please rate a 5. Only rate a 1 if you did not receive anything.

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!

you can find the swap graphic on Tumbler

I have Lynne Florig-Beck's journal and will be working with stencils on it:-)

This sounds like fun but I want to be sure I understand the journal before joining. Is the max size 5x7 with the book closed? The 10 pages is that 10 sheets of paper folded in half when inserted or is it 5 sheets folded ? Love the prompts.

Completed Stencils prompt in @aznanagc 's journal. Having SO MUCH FUN! Thanks for hosting Kim!

Hi Art Stamper, the book should be max size 5x7 when closed. there should be room for 10 artists inside, so 10 spreads - however you want to get there....

I have Darla's journal...and just checking is my journal still out there...Julybaby

kim91262 03/18/2016 #

JulyBaby, your journal is here with me in Chicago. I've got another journal to send out in this round, but yours will go out in the next round :)

Julybaby59 03/19/2016 #

okay great....I am starting to get anxious about seeing it...

I have Barbara Bennett's journal. It looks like it just has one spread left to decorate. I'm hoping my journal is still out there.

Ladybird2490 03/23/2016 #

Hi I'm just wondering if my journal is still in rotation.

kim91262 03/24/2016 #

I'm going to email everyone when the next round posts, but i want to put this here for anyone else to see: if you decide to drop this swap, i will hound you until you return the journal in your possession. if you tell me you don't have a journal to return after months of no contact and no "1" rating left for the sender, i will confiscate your journal and turn it into an angel for the one you basically stole from the swap. End rant. Everyone else who is not an a$$ hat, happy swapping!!
