This swap will be much like the adventures of a travelling postcard but this will be a Art Journal page.

In this swap you will start a 5x7 page by doing the base of the page or the prep of a page you can use any medium i.e book pages, torn patterned paper, tissue paper, stamping, doodling.

The 2nd round will color and the 3rd will decorate and send back to the original owner. If you do not receive one from the previous round and still wish to be in the swap again start a new 5x7 page by prepping the page and sending it to your swap partner.

On the back you will write your name and address at top and the name of the swap, once the page is finished it will be sent back to you.

Anyone who works on the page will also sign the back, start about half way down, write your name , the name of the swap and the round.

So recap;

Round 1 is prep a 5x7 page, with book pages, tissue paper, stamping, doodling.( make it sturdy as it will be travelling to at least 3 people). Do not bend it.

Round 2 you are to add color.( don't forget to add your name and the name of the swap,round on the back).

Round 3 decorate and put a quote on it and send it back to the original owner. If you find yourself with a homer, you will also need to send a new prep page to your partner.

This swap really cannot be angeled in a sense that it is a creative swap, but i will always send a RAK envie of ephemera if you are flaked or unhappy with the outcome of the swap.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if i have not explained it well enough. Comment below.

Max of 2 pages in a posting.

Hi I have some questions about the swap.

1, In round 1 you say we can doodle and stamp on the page. Then in round 2 color gets added to it. Wont that cover up the stamping and doodling already on it depending on how we add color to it? I only ask because I don't wont to disappoint anyone with what I might add to it.

  1. If there are only 3 rounds with the first being the one who started the page, how will it be traveling to 3 people?

  2. In round 3 you say we are to finish the page we get and start a new one to send for them to work on. So does that mean you will be continuing the swaps after round 3?

hi Luna Moody,

if there is interest I sure will continue it.

if you doodle and stamp on a prepped page , it will be up to the person who colors it if they cover it or if they only use light or watered down color, I know when I start a page I put book pages or I write something such as a poem.

3 people would be the 1. person who starts it, 2 the person who colors it, 3 the person decorates and puts a quote on it.

I'm so often told there is no wrong way of doing Art!

hopefully this has answered all your questions.
