This swap is for anyone who loves somewhat dark, mysterious and gothic Victorian (and maybe Edwardian) designs, stories, pictures etc. Any type of folklore surrounding gypsies, vampires, werevoles etc are included within the parameters of this swap.
Note that this swap is not purely goth-related, so skulls etc are not entirely appropriate (except perhaps in a Edgar Allen Poe type of way).
Make or decorate a journal (at least 5x7 but you can pick the shape and details) as elaborately as possible, giving it a rich, darkly mysterious feel. You can add brocade pieces or velvet, laces, maybe an old rusty key etc.
Inside, write a few pages about why you like these themes, what fascinates you about it. You can include books or movies you've really enjoyed, poems that speak to you, or put other pictures inside. You can also add sketches or drawings, pictures etc. The content is pretty much up to you. You should fill 10-20 pages of the journal, depending on what you're putting into it.
Include at least 3 additional items with this swap. They can be themed ATCs, pieces of velvet ribbon, gothic jewelry, a book - it's totally up to you. These items do not have to be expensive - they can be storebought or handmade - but they should be clean and not dirty/smelly etc.
Newbies & anyone with a rating of less than 4.9 should contact me before signing up. Please feel free to email me with questions, suggestions etc. :)
