I really want to delve deeper into this and hope you do too. This is for a 5x7 or larger art journal swap with 30 sturdy pages. You may use a premade journal or create a nicely bound journal yourself. I like to use heavy weight paper to avoid the structure falling apart. Inside you will create 30 pages of art. Art consists of what you make of it but try and stretch your imagination. Use paints, watercolors, oils, markers, drawings, papers, old or new photos, magazine clippings, newspapers, stickers, sheet music, junk mail, old napkins, fabric, lace, Washi, dies cuts, or whatever to create pages that showcase you. Pages need to be a variety of mediums and should not consist primarily of handwritten entries, sticker slapping, or solid color paint pages with little depth. Think of texture and interest on the page and make it something you absolutely adore. Remember there are no mistakes in art. This can be for a beginner or the novice. The point is to experiment and enjoy the process. There are a ton of YouTube videos on journals for creative inspiration. This swap is only for those with near perfect ratings, no recent low ratings because it is intensive and I can not angel due to time constraints. When you receive your journal, please rate a 5 if it arrived on time and has 30 pages. Heart as you see fit. No extras required for this swap. Due to postage costs, this is a US swap only.

Do you mind if I run this as an international swap at some point?

If you do i will sign up. I am in the UK and there are never any art journal swaps I can join

Hi! dumb question here :) it was just brought to my attention (as I'm gluing!) are you counting 30 pages as front and back (which would be 15 ? Thanks... I thought I was fine, but now the peanut gallery here with me have me all confused!!

Rosa it’s for 30 pages total. So not front and back.
