New Participant: You will have to make a mini handmade journal with a minimum of 10 pages (max. size is 5x7, around 2 - 3 ounces) 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 a previous swap's prompt) if you choose, but it's not mandatory.

Returning Participant: Decorate and send out your mini-book from the last round (#7 theme was: One Color. Remember, the journal GOING OUT in this round should have the color 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: Quotes. Draw around your quote. Make your words art themselves. Collage. Famous or just something your mom always said. 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.

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!

I have Cherry lime's journal and there is only one page left on it. I imagine other people can add pages to it as there is room for more pages.

my PC doesn't give me to see examples of art journals. Could you see other example but not in flicker? maybe facebook or by e-mail

Just now getting back online - sorry for the delay. I have Julybaby 59's journal

Star7Lily 03/23/2014 #

@Julybaby i believe once the book is full it must then be returned to its original owner whose name and address is on the cover somewhere. They can then make a new journal and start over.

@Agheshka you would have google or a similar bar to type in searches. Simply write .... Images journals ... And there will be loads to see
