This is the seventh 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 (#6 theme was: fairy tale, movie or book. Remember, the journal GOING OUT in this round should have the fairy tale, movie, book 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: One Color. Try and use one color in this round's spread. Of course, other colors are acceptable (if you collage, or do another form of art) but try to stay to one dominant color. 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 14 days from the Sign-up date to make (if this is your first round) or draw (for returning participants) before sending to your partner.

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.

Please comment below with the owner's name of the journal you currently have. It would be nice to know if our journals are still in rotation and where they are :) Thanks!

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 6: favorite fairy tale, movie or book (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!)

I have J Susan Lancasters journal, sorry i didnt make the deadline to sign up. Our new policy of no mobiles on site during work hours caused me to forget. But it will be sent next round unless someone else missed the deadline and wants to swap journals with me. :)
