You are signing up to participate in a tip-in altered book swap. A tip-in is basically just like book altering, but instead of getting a book with pages to alter – you create pages to put in or to create an altered book. All tip-ins have different size requirements. For this one I would ask that you take an 8 ½ x 11 inch sheet of sturdy cardstock and turn it so that the height is 8 ½ and the width is 11. Fold the sheet across (horizontally) so you have a double page spread. Then alter away!!!

The theme for this swap is “orange".. anything orange from paint to embellishments.. no specific subject matter - that part is up to you. You will have 2 partners and you will need to send one double page spread to each of your partners – and you will receive one back from each of your partners.

I would also like for you to make a signature tag for each of the double page spreads you send out so that if your pages are included in a book the owner can have info on all of the artists. Keep bulky embellishments away from the center of the page, and try to minimize too heavy embellishments.

The ultimate goal would be to have enough pages for an entire book – so I plan on posting more of these swaps.

No one with more than 2 "no sends", please. If you have a low rating, please PM me to explain, or you will not be allowed in this swap. Everyone deserves to receive their tip-ins. Thanks!

Just a little clarity, please. Is the finished page 5.5" wide by 8.5" tall? Thanks ;o)
