This is the sixth in the series but feel free to join in! I'll keep doing swaps as long as there is interest.

New Participant: You will have to make a mini handmade journal with a minimum of 10 pages (max. size is 5x7) that will be sent to your partner. Make sure your name, username and address is on the last page so it can be returned to you when it is full.

This book is going to be used for MIXED MEDIA so please make sure that your book is made of a sturdy paper that can hold up to some beating.

You can decorate the first spread of pages (please use the last swap's prompt) if you choose, but it's not mandatory.

Returning Participant: Decorate and send out your mini-book from the last round (#5 theme was: TIME! Remember, the journal GOING OUT in this round should have the time prompt). When you receive your mini-book from your partner in this round, you will be required to complete one (1) full page spread based on the prompt given. Don't forget to add your username, date and country to your layout somewhere. You will then hold on to the book until the next partner is assigned and send it to them.

When the book is full you will need to return the book back to it's original owner.

PROMPT: What’s your favorite fairy tale, movie or book? Draw, paint or whatever your favorite scene, don't forget to add a title. Remember: this prompt will go in the book you RECEIVE this round!!

Rating: if you receive a book from your partner with one full spread decorated (one left side, one right side) in a reasonable amount of time, please rate a 5. Only rate a 1 if you did not receive anything.

You will have 20 days from the Sign-up date to make (if this is your first round) or draw (for returning participants) before sending to your partner. I hope everyone will get it out sooner, but I didn't want to have journals due during the Holidays!

I will angel this swap on the following conditions:

  • it's been 4 weeks

  • you've contacted your swap partner and tried to work something out and

  • you have rated a 1

Rating is set at 4.9. I will check profiles and I reserve the right to ban anyone I consider a risk. No newbies and no recent unexplained 1s or 3s.

NEW if you currently have a journal, would you please comment below with the owner's name? it would be nice to know if our journals are still in rotation and where they are :) Thanks!

Do you have to draw or paint or could you use different mix media?

kim91262 11/30/2013 #

haha...whatever media you want!

Ladybird2490 12/ 1/2013 #

I was thinking collage

Star7lily, your journal is in Mobile, AL :)

kim91262 12/ 7/2013 #

seems a lot of journals are coming to their partners with the current prompt already in them. If you are in this situation, no worries! you can redo the prompt (as i'm sure your take on it is different than the previous person) OR you use a previous prompt that's not currently in the journal. no one should be rating down, as long as you have filled out a spread. the previous rounds were:
2: List, List, List 3: under the sea 4: Food! 5: Time (this should be what you draw in the book you currently have and are sending out in this round!! unless it's already in there!)

Am I right in think that I decorate the book I receive with the theme

Julybaby59 12/ 9/2013 #

I have Lucine's art journal

kim91262 12/10/2013 #

@Ladybird2490 yes. the book you receive in this round would get the theme. if you join this swap for the first time and want to do a spread of your own before sending your journal off, you can use one of the earlier themes :)

Also just a note that the snail mail along with other types of deliveries are swamped due to the holiday rush. We might want to give a little extra time to receive the journal or contact your partner if you feel you should have received the journal by a certain date. Just a thought anyway.

I have Julybaby 59's journal.

This is SO confusing! Surely the prompt is favourite movie, as time was the last prompt to send out. Why have movie this time when time has been done. Does NOT make any sense! @kim9162 thank you
