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.

Rating is set at 4.9. I will check profiles and I reserve the right to ban anyone I consider a risk: unexplained 1s or 3s in the last 6 months, anyone who hasn’t been active for the last 3 months, No newbies (anyone on swap-bot less than 6 months). If you are in one of the above mentioned categories but feel you should be allowed to join, message me.

Returning Participant: Decorate and send out your mini-book from the last round (R20 theme was: Numbers. Remember, the journal GOING OUT in this round should have the numbers prompt).

When you receive your mini-book from your partner in this round, you will be required to complete one (1) full page spread (one left side and one right side) 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: Stencils. Use one! A store bought stencil, a handmade stencil or anything that you can think of - be creative! Remember: this prompt will go in the book you RECEIVE this round!! Don't like the current theme? use an old one that's not in the book yet!

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.

Please comment below with the journal owner's name/ID. I keep track of the journals, but confirmation (for me and the owner) is always nice :) Thanks!

Hi guys! I want to join in but I want to clarify that if i send a newly made journal out, is it okay that it is not yet worked in? Because it says that making your own 1st spread is optional, but in the rating guideline it says a 5 for a journal with full spread. Just want to make sure I start out on the right foot.

I have kim91262 journal and will finish the R20/Numbers pages and send on to the person given to me to send to. Just wanted to let you all know whose journal I have. There are plenty of pages left in her journal, so it will be going a few more places:-) Who has mine?

@goodmorningfelicity you're right! as a new journal, you are not required to put any art on the first spread...the work you put into making the book and decorating the cover is all you need for this first one. you won't be rated down for an empty first set of pages :)
