This is my very 1st swap to host. Art journal, binding to be a Tim Holtz 2 ring binding (these are fairly cheep and come in a 2 pack) size can be 5"x5" or 6"x6" these will work best for the size of the binding ring.Paper base for all the pages is to be watercolor paper because it is heavy and can stand up to the mixed media of the art journal's pages. 25 pages minimum decorated front and back. Please feel free to add things like fave halloween games, ghost stories, recipes, traditions, candies, pumpkin seeds, make it fun to discover new things like add pockets or envelopes or flip outs or tuck spots. The book is to be complete when sent out, this is not a journal that the other person will write or draw or art journal in once they get it. Get creative use things you don't normally think of as art supplies, like food coloring, or lace, or feathers. Be sure to add things like costume idea or patterns, fun spells if your witchy. Make the cover out of something recycled like a cereal box. Use paints, markers, fabric, lace, buttons, paper, pressed flowers or plants, feathers, ribbons, stickers, draw something, candy wrappers, cool paper,s tea or coffee, and anything else you can think up. I want these to be a book you can enjoy any day of the year when you miss the fun of halloween. These should get thick and fat because of all the fun extra stuff you can add to them. Don't forget to add the fun bits to the spine like ribbons or beads. Make a clasp (ribbon ties work great fro this)
Spooky lab book notes The monster mash tickets and pics from the ball Best halloween party ever (games and treats) Masquerade ball (make a mask) What goes in the witches brew and what is it used for? Creepy locations (grave yards spooky castles old libraries dungeons creepy woods) add a little Poe, or other creepy written excerpts Tell me a ghost story (why not from the ghost's pov - write it yourself) Include candy the tricks and the treats History Spooky creatures The fun and cutesy side of it (like what it was like to you as a child) Haunted house ideas What scares you Creepy crawlies (spiders bats rats bugs) Nightmare before christmas / sleepy hollow/ Mary Shelly's Frankenstein / arsenic and old lace/ jigsaw Funny or scary clowns Spooky music (include a track or song or artist to look up) Vincent Price (old hollywood horror) Experiments
ok wso you get the idea :) this is welcome to all including un-rated newbies :) as long as you are a USA based participant. I would love to do a swap that is international for this one but because of the bulk that is just too expensive to mail. NEWBIES welcome :) just have a profile up even it its short.
To me a big part of halloween is the candy, so try and send some with this book. (even adults love trick-or-treats)
get creative I am allowing lots of time since I know that art journals take longer than junk journals and some of you may need to buy the rings or the watercolor paper or eat some cereal for its box to make the cover with. Also I am open to discussions here and will respond.
Lets spread the word about this it will be a lot of fun if we can get a lot of participants in it :)
