As per requested here is a strictly US version.

What is a Flow-ish journal?

It is a book that is loosely bound so the receiver can take the papers/pages out of it and use them in their own projects. The cover is often made from a recycled envelope. The pages are all types of paper; ephemera, maps, menus, painted papers, Gelli-printed papers, envelopes, greeting cards, tissue paper, decorative napkins, etc. Think things you would use for any paper crafting.

Loosely bound means the pages are attached to the cover with rubber bands or tied in with ribbon or yarn. The papers/pages should slide out easily.

  • For this swap you will create a cover from new/reused large envelope, cereal box, reused file folder or other sturdy material approximately 9" x 11.5"(23 x 29 cm), folded to 9" x 5.75" (23 x 14.5 cm). Go wild decorating the cover - paint, ink, stencil, stamp, collage. Have fun but please make it sturdy.

  • Add in your papers. See above for ideas of what to use. Folded is okay for this swap.

  • Bind according to instructions above.

  • You will send one journal approximately 9" x 5.75" (23 x 14.5 cm) consisting of a cover and at least 15 items inside.

BEWARE once you start watching these they become addictive.

As always I reserve the right to excuse anyone that may alter the success of this swap or spoil the fun of the other participants.

Let's have a happy swap!

I did watch Doodle's you tube video. I don't subscribe to many channels or click the thumbs up often, so you know I had to really like this video. Thanks for the link. I am hooked, very cute. If you do another next year, I could join. I am not sure I can fit this in during the holidays.

I only got 1/2 way through the 20 minute you tube video for link 2; I was convinced this could be my new obsession.

I am in love with this so and it was so much to do! And my partner spoiled me with a beautifully packaged journal full goodies and surprises. I loved everything and got some ideas already. But for now I just want to look at it again!
