**CLOSED TO SIGN UPS. THANKS FOR LOOKING**

"You've been challenged" - Mixed Media 4"x4" Chunky Book Swap
Due Date #1 - Baggies due to hostess by JULY 22
Due Date #2 - Chunky Book pages due to hostess by SEPT 14
Number of Pages – 4 for 4
Number of players - 16

** UPDATE - NEW DUE DATE FOR COMPLETED PAGES = SEPT 21!! BUT I WILL NOT WAIT FOR ANY LATE PACKAGES. LATE = NEUTRAL ITRADER FROM ME AND THE PLAYERS THAT RECIEVE THE PAGES FROM YOU**


I always find it challenging and fun to use items that someone has given me in art. And now it's your turn to send in items for the other players to use on YOUR chunky book page.

Here's how it will work.

Phase 1 - Due Date July 22
1. In each of the 4 baggies, include 5 items. (Please be considerate of postage costs.)
*UPDATE* An example of some items would be your favorite photo, a small doll's arm, funky fibers, bubble wrap, and tissue paper. It can be anything that is light weight and easy to collage or add to the chunky book page. Basically, you're just throwing some things together and challenging the other artists to "do something" with it.

2. Please use quart size bags (or a bag large enough that a 4x4 chunky page will be able to fit in it, when being returned at the end of the swap.)

3. Label each bag with your USER NAME and REAL NAME

4. Send all 4 baggies to me. They are DUE by JULY 22.



On July 25, I will swap out the baggies to each of the players. If your baggies have not arrived by Saturday, July 25, they will be returned to you at your expense and you will no longer be able to participate.



Phase 2 - Due Date September 14
1. When you receive your baggies, make a chunky page using the 5 items that you received. (1 page per bag of items.) You may also add other elements/items to enhance the page, but you must use all 5 of the original items.

2. On the back of each page, please indicate the recipient's name (the person who sent you the 5 items used), and your user name and artist information.

3. Put the chunky page back into the original bag that has the recipient's label.

4. When all the pages are completed, please mail them back to me. I need them in my hands by Sept 14!!! Any late pages are subject to neutral i-trader points.


Postage and other mailing information.
1. Because there are more mailings than normal, the postage cost will be a bit higher. USA = $6.00 / Everywhere else = $8.00 This will cover both phase 1 and phase 2 mailings. I will cover any overages on the postage costs.

2. Please include two (2) LARGE return address labels.


UPDATE ON ITRADER POINTS...
I asked the moderators for their recommendation on how we should leave itraders and they decided the following:

"Leave one iTrader when the players return the completed cards to you. And they should leave one for you when you return the completed cards to them.

This is going to be considered a PAT like swap once the bags are mailed to the players to make the pages.
You are going to have to keep track of who you send each players bag to.
When players receive their final returns they we be able to leave iTrader for each player who made a page for them. (Because it was made especially for them.)

You and the players should also leave a negative iTrader for any one who doesn't return a page."

Oh, this is too too clever you smart girl! Which of course means, sign me up!

And PLEASE stop posting irresistable swaps! :nah:

Joyflower - *L* I'm not making any promises.

Welcome to the swap. Thanks for signing up.

NancyL

this sounds interesting---intriguing. The direcetions seem clear. Do you have any suggestions for "items'?

Anyway please add me.

corrie04
06-28-2009, 02:12 PM
Thanks for signing up, Nancy.

The items could be your favorite vintage photo, a small doll's arm, funky fibers, bubble wrap, and tissue paper. It can be anything that is light weight and easy to collage or add to the chunky book page. Basically, you're just throwing some things together and challenging the other artists to "do something" with it.

I've done this in an ATC swap a couple of times and it was a big hit. I hope others sign up for the chunky book swap.

ridiculously brilliant swap. I'm so so so so so not supposed to sign up for anything. so, that's means, Corrie is being a bully by making cool swaps.

corrie04
06-28-2009, 02:55 PM
So does that mean that you're going to sign up? Cuz you know you want to...

JoyFlower
06-28-2009, 02:58 PM
, Corrie is being a bully by making cool swaps.

Isn't she though! C'mon...you know you're gonna join, so you may as well give in now....:rolleyes:

Bright-Spark
06-28-2009, 03:38 PM
Are you willing to take international participants?

Do we send 4 baggies with different items? they don't have to be the same?

corrie04
06-28-2009, 03:50 PM
Sparky - International players are most welcome!!! Let me know if you are officially signing up. :)

The items can be different.

katilady
06-28-2009, 05:39 PM
how did i miss this corrie? i'll give it a whirl!

corrie04
06-28-2009, 05:46 PM
Don't know, Kati. I was wondering why you hadn't signed up, yet. I'm glad that's rectified, now.

Bright-Spark
06-28-2009, 06:02 PM
Yes. please sign me up!

I need to improve my collage skills....

Can I include a small hand drawn/painted item in the baggie??

corrie04
06-28-2009, 06:12 PM
Sure. As long as it can be added to your chunky page.

Welcoome to the swap!

NancyL
06-28-2009, 07:02 PM
When we mail the 4 baggies to you, should we send along our postage money? I'm guessing so. and should we mail in a bubble envelope?
since the baggies are going to different people some of the baggies could ahve items the same an other baggies in your set.
I mean you don't have to have 20 completely different items?

cbshai
06-28-2009, 07:11 PM
great idea Corrie!
may I have a spot?

Good questions, Nancy.

When the baggies are mailed, please include the postage costs. I'll use some of the postage $$ for sending the baggies to players and then use the remaining postage $$ for the chunky book pages when they're returned.

No, you do not need to have 20 completely different items.

corrie04
06-28-2009, 07:27 PM
Christy - Absolutely! I'm glad to have you. It's been awhile since we've been in a swap together.

corrie04
06-29-2009, 01:09 PM
Sue W- Yes, I do have a paypal account. I'll have to double check my user name on it, since it's been a while since I used it. But I can get that information for you, if you're interested in signing up. Just let me know.

PrincessScary - I hope that you'll decide to sign up.

NancyL
06-29-2009, 01:28 PM

07-07-2009, 10:38 AM
Well, I just joined and I really don't want to do this but...

I opened up a swap that is going to be work intensive on my part, and then I doubled the size so more people could participate. I am going to have to drop, although I truly do not want to...

Sorry Corrie. :(

corrie04
07-07-2009, 10:59 AM
Okay. Thanks for letting me know

corrie04

Sparky and camcas - your baggies have arrived.


Only 1 more week until the 1st deadline.

Bright-Spark
07-16-2009, 01:35 AM
Yippee, re they arrived.....

I have to confess that after I packed them up I realised that I had probably boobed. I used a variety of stuff which I thought might appeal to others, rather than thinking the finished pages were coming back to me! :huh:

corrie04
07-16-2009, 08:03 AM
*LOL*... With all the cool stuff coming in, I may just keep everything for myself.. Then you don't have to worry about it, Sparky! *wink*

cbshai
07-16-2009, 08:37 AM
:jiggy:I am just imagining what you are getting. I can't wait to get the baggies back and start to work

katilady
07-16-2009, 09:56 AM

brightspark-i actually had quite a lot of thought before i did my baggies-intially i filled them with all different fun stuff ,then realized that actually it might be better for them to be similar to see what people did with simlar items..so i ,too,repacked them.
Actuually though i dont think it matters-they will all be fab I'm sure

corrie04
07-20-2009, 07:48 PM
I packed similar items in mine, too (3 the same / 2 different). I wanted to see how different they would come out, even though everyone received some of the same supplies.

cbshai
07-20-2009, 09:25 PM
I seriously wish I could be looking over your shoulder when you open up the envelopes and see what everyone sent. How exciting

Bright-Spark

07-22-2009, 06:42 PM
And I'm "randomly" swapping everything... so I'll make sure that I "randomly" give you all of the nude pictures and body parts, camcus! *L*

JoyFlower
07-23-2009, 12:35 AM
Mine are very innocent, and will be there tomorrow btw...so, if anyone wants to add body parts or nudes feel free. :laugh:

Bright-Spark
07-23-2009, 01:44 AM
Mine are very boring by the sound of it. I wish I could start again!:(

corrie04
07-23-2009, 01:12 PM
Great Joyflower. I'll swap them out this weekend and will have th baggies in the mail by Wednesday of next week. (I'm waiting for the paypal postage $$ to be transferred to my bank account.)

mrubyjean
07-24-2009, 11:56 AM

Don't worry, Bright-Spark...some might look at mine as boring, too. Some of us are less excited about body parts :twitcy: than others!

corrie04
07-24-2009, 05:19 PM
Joyflower - your package arrived yesterday.

JoyFlower
07-24-2009, 05:34 PM
Whew! ;) BTW, sweet hostess, if you include a baggie of items of your choosing in my envelope I would be happy to make a page for you following the "challenge" theme.

corrie04
07-24-2009, 07:36 PM
What a sweet offer, Cheryl Ann! I'll try to remember to do that, but with my mind, I'm lucky to remember to zip my pants.

JoyFlower
07-24-2009, 08:10 PM
Corrie - may I recommend skirts with an elastic waistband? No zips to miss! Just make sure the hem doesn't get stuck in said waistband. ;)

cbshai
07-24-2009, 09:51 PM

I'll do a host page for you as well Corrie if you'd like :)

corrie04
07-25-2009, 09:26 AM
I appreciate the generous offers, but there really isn't any need to make me hostess pages. Just do your best work for everyone and that will be gift enough. :)

katilady
07-25-2009, 08:07 PM
you are sweet corrie!

corrie04
07-26-2009, 05:53 PM
Drum roll, please! The baggies have been swapped and they will be mailed on Monday or Tuesday.

There were some interesting items. I hope everyone has fun.

corrie04
07-26-2009, 07:35 PM
Update...
I made an oops and forgot to add PrincessScary's name on the list. Her baggies are still in-transit. (She mailed them in time to get here by the deadline, but the postal system is being slllloooowww). Hopefully, they'll get here in the next couple of days.

camcas
07-29-2009, 07:44 AM
all i can say is that if body parts "randomly " make it to Oz then its game on and i take no responsibilty for what art may be sent back ......!!!! :)

corrie04
07-29-2009, 08:21 AM
The package still hasn't arrived yet... hopefully, it'll come today. (For some reason, our mail didn't run yesterday - so maybe it was "waiting" for PrincessScary's package.)

PrincessScary
07-29-2009, 12:34 PM
sorry to hold you guys up, hope it gets there today

katilady
07-29-2009, 12:55 PM

corrie04
07-29-2009, 07:45 PM
Just junk mail today. No package. :(

katilady
07-29-2009, 09:07 PM
if it's much longer can we push out the due date a bit?

corrie04
07-29-2009, 10:14 PM
I'm hoping the package will be here by this weekend. Either way, I'll mail on Monday.

Would it be easier for everyone if I pushed the due date out another week? Due Sept 21?

NancyL
07-30-2009, 12:22 AM
How could it hurt?
I've completed almost all my swaps so mine will get done pronto. But another week to do them, why not?

cbshai
07-30-2009, 07:15 AM
I can do whatever you decide. I'm easy:D

katilady
07-30-2009, 11:51 AM
another week would be terrific!

corrie04
07-30-2009, 05:25 PM
Okay. I'll update the first thread... however, since I'm waiting another week, I'm cutting the hostess/return deadline very close. So I will not be able to wait for any late mailings.

corrie04
07-30-2009, 06:12 PM
The last package has arrived!!!! Woot!
I'll reswap some of the bags, this weekend, and mail them on Monday.

PrincessScary

Yay! so relieved it got there!! Thanks Corrie and thats to all of you for waiting for me! :)

corrie04

Okay, PrincessScary's baggies have been swapped and everyone's packages will be mailed on Monday.

I've updated the first thread to list who's page each person will be working on. Remember the itrader points will work like a PAT swap. If you have any questions, let me know.

All the packages were mailed out today. Baggies should start arriving within the next few days-week.

NancyL
08-05-2009, 07:25 PM
Mine came and nothing challenging was included, like plastic body parts...thank you very much!

mrubyjean
08-05-2009, 08:34 PM
Mine arrived, too...they look great and fun to work with!

corrie04
08-05-2009, 08:46 PM
WOW!!! That was fast. Great to hear that they're arriving all ready

NancyL
08-05-2009, 09:51 PM
Must you include all of the thing? I understand using all 5 things, but I have a dress pattern and a very large napkin ---can I use pieces of a thing?
Remember we only have 16 square inches to work with here plus dangly space.

If we are to use the whole thing, can part of it be on the back of the page?

NancyL
08-06-2009, 12:49 AM
well, the dress pattern and napking(most of it) did get on that page. I used beeswax and am hoping my sealer works and the whole thing does not crack off.

A tip---when you take stuff out of a particular baggie, make sure the others are closed up and maybe far away.

I also found that at least one of my baggies has more than 5 things. {This was the last bag I opened and all the others were put away.)

I only have one item that might not be with its original group.
I see that the rest of your are laughing but wait until you begin your pages.

corrie04
08-06-2009, 07:56 AM
No, you don't have to use the entire item. A piece here, a part there... just so that it can be noticed in some way, shape, or form.

If someone included 6 items, then you have the option to use that 6th item or not. If you choose not to, please send it home to the original owner.

NancyL
08-10-2009, 11:27 PM
Mine are finished and will be mailed Wednesday. I really enjoyed doing these. I hope you repeat this swap sometime down the road. It was relaxing to have the main bits provided. I just had to think of an idea to connect them and then add extra bits. I included a short and light-weight note with each of my pages.

corrie04
08-11-2009, 08:31 AM
NancyL - You are always soooo fast! I'm glad that you had fun and I'm definitely willing to host another one!

Bright-Spark
08-11-2009, 02:20 PM
My baggies arrived today!

And I just knew'd it, they all look way more interesting than anything I put into my own.....:cry::sad::( Can I start again?????

I can't wait to get started, but they will have to wait until next week because I am on a course this week. I expect to get home in the evening, feed the cat, feed me, and then roll into bed.

katilady

Sparky - Just make sure that you join the sequel swap.

You running one??

I will keep every weird oddball items from now on!! But, I suppose you won't appreciate me sending you a bunch of men?:twitcy:

Sexist? Me? ;)

corrie04
08-12-2009, 05:21 PM
I'll be doing a sequel swap after this one is done.

Just send the men to Rachel's house... esp, if they're wearing the kilts.

camcas
08-13-2009, 04:22 AM
so -are we posting finished pages here or are we keeping surprises????

camcas
08-13-2009, 08:32 AM
sooo- mine are done..but I will hold them for a day in case you would like me to post here rather than keep the surprise....
...and sparky..sniff... I'm so sorry..gasp.. I scanned her and then ...I HAD to cut her in half!!! There was nothing else for it I'm afraid. I really did try but i just can't do "cute".....and also ...she has a nekkid tummy ...with a belly button jewel and all...sorry.
Actually I'm not really sorry at all cos I had a damn good time!!!!!!!

corrie04
08-13-2009, 06:16 PM
I'm an impatient person, so I say post!

camcas
08-14-2009, 05:16 AM
Hi corrie-you got your wish. I had soooo much fun-please sign me up for the next round before its open!!!
I will not put names by the scans cos the recipients should [hopefully] recognize their stuff...except perhaps for Sparky whose cutsie photo i destroyed[in scan form only of course!!!- I am not that cruel!]

camcas
08-14-2009, 05:20 AM
and ..one of the baggies contained 7 items -I was able to use 6 of them but there was one piece that i just couldnt make fit and destroyed it in the process by trying to trim it,change its colour with ink ,distress it etc. So to the person who sent the bright green foam letter "f"[gasp!]...my humble condolences for your loss!

camcas

NancyL
08-14-2009, 08:47 PM
I got 7 items from someone also. I just returned the one I didn't use.
And Camcas, Ii love my page! I frequently use that photo and you added things I hadn't thought of.

camcas
08-15-2009, 03:59 AM
i think thats the real beauty of this swap..[corrie -you are so clever!!!] is that even though you may have had an idea of how people would use your stuff,I'll bet they do things completely differently. So cool to see!cant wait for mine!

corrie04
08-15-2009, 05:21 PM
Nancy - The finished pages have arrived!

Sue W
08-15-2009, 08:46 PM

Bright-Spark
08-24-2009, 08:55 AM
I am going to hold my head in shame and confess that I have just had to PM katilady to check if she can remember what her fifth item was????

I have literally just reopened all the bags to confirm my ideas before I start work and there are only four items in Kati's bag. I am sure the fifth item can't have gone far (it has to be on my workdesk or on the floor surrounding it, since that is the only other place I had it open when they first arrived).

And, hopefully she won't think I am pulling a stunt since the rather wonderful aged key which I admired at the start is still there. As much as I might want to keep it!:huh:

JoyFlower
08-24-2009, 08:58 AM
Too funny, Sparky! It could easily happen to any of us. :laugh:

Bright-Spark
08-24-2009, 08:58 AM
Hey, and I have just spotted the new due date for finished pages!

Ah well, I will keep going. That way they should be with corrie04 on time.

Bright-Spark
08-24-2009, 04:01 PM
Well, I got ONE done! It takes a while to pluck up the courage to cut into someone else's stuff!!

For mrubyjean:

NancyL
08-24-2009, 04:50 PM
I understand completely about misplacing items from those bags, BrightSpark! It would almost be better to have only one baggie in the room and all the others in a different part of the house. all those items like to congregate no matter which baggie they come from and since they are not your items, it can be frustrating figuring out which ones belong to which baggie.
I really enjoyed making my pages and would love to do another swap like this. If you sent along little pieces, it could be done as an ATC swap.

mrubyjean
08-24-2009, 05:02 PM
Oh, Bright-Spark...I just love it!!

corrie04
08-24-2009, 07:13 PM
Sparky - The first page looks great!!! Can't wait to see the others.

NancyL - The first 2 times that I particpated in this type of swap, it was an ATC swap. But since I don't make ATC's anymore, I thought it would be fun to do this for chunky books.

camcas
08-25-2009, 09:31 AM
Sparky- I totally understand your dilemma!!!I thought I was going mad when I opened 1 baggie and it had 7 items-i counted them 5 times and then had to count all the others cos i thought I had mixed them up!!!!! I used all but one that was just too hard to add so i hope the sender is ok with that.
really this swap is just too much fun!

JoyFlower
08-25-2009, 10:49 AM
It is fun! I am almost done, so will finish up, post pictures and get them sent back to our lovely and clever hostess! :)

cbshai
08-25-2009, 10:59 AM
my are officially back on their way to you Corrie

NancyL
08-25-2009, 12:00 PM
Corrie, I'm sorry/sad that you aren't making ATCs now. I'm hosting an ATC photo swap with water. This evolved from a Patterns and Textures Photo Swap that you hosted.Indirectly you got me using our diigital camera and making photo ATCs.

corrie04
08-25-2009, 12:29 PM
Nancy - Just got burned out on them. (Although, I still love the photos!) Maybe some day I'll go back, but I like to work bigger now.

sweet!

camcas
09-04-2009, 08:01 AM
corrie -I perfectly understand your feeling about ATC-for me it is inchies. I love to look at them but i always feel stressed that they are so small!ATC or chunky is perfect for me

corrie04
09-04-2009, 08:06 AM
camcas - Like you said, inchies are gorgeous to look at (especially when they're paired all together), but I really don't like to make them.

However, the one time that I did make inchies, I was hosting a refrigerator poetry magnet swap. Each of the inches had to have a word on it and then we added a magnet. I got some great inchies that made funny sayings when put all together.

katilady
09-04-2009, 09:42 AM
i mailed my pages yesterday!

corrie04
09-04-2009, 01:05 PM
Okay! I'll look for them next week.

corrie04
09-04-2009, 06:09 PM
Fancydelray - you're fantastic pages have arrived. I like how you used the extra napkin on the back of some of the other pages.

mrubyjean
09-05-2009, 03:18 PM
OK, my cards are finished...they look much better than the scans here as my scanner doesn't like "chunk". Here are my chunkies for CBShai, PrincessScary and SueW ~

mrubyjean
09-05-2009, 03:20 PM
Kati ~ Yours was a real challenge, as I had not used shrink plastic before. Look carefully, you can see the cute little zetti shrink plastic legs...they look much better on the actual page!

katilady

Joyflower - your fabulous pages came yesterday.

I started on mine yesterday, when I met up with KarenM and BlueTiger for our monthly AFA meet-up. I still need to finish 1 or 2, though.

We have a week until the final due date.

JoyFlower

Glad to know they arrived. :) It's so fun seeing what everyone has done with this challenge.

Bright-Spark
09-20-2009, 03:27 AM
Okay, I am REALLY worried now, looks like my package hasn't shown up. It doesn't normally take more than a week to get something to Corrie04. Keeping my fingers crossed!

corrie04
09-20-2009, 02:55 PM
Sparky - I'm going to go double check my the stash to make sure that i didn't miss your envie. BRB...

corrie04

Nope. Not here yet.

I'm still waiting for PrincessScary's too. I'll wait until this coming weekend to swap them out.

corrie04
09-20-2009, 02:58 PM
I'll be scanning my pages here in a bit. I just need to give them a final looksy to see if there is anything that I want to change.

I have to say that I was throughly challenged.

corrie04

Wow, what a wild page ~ I love it, corrie!

corrie04
09-20-2009, 06:56 PM
probably totally different from what you expected. The Pelican is a print out from one of my original photos. It's one of those old rides that you'd find at K-marts, etc. There was someone at a flea market selling that and a sea-horse.

mrubyjean
09-20-2009, 07:27 PM

Princess - your pages arrived today.

I have everyone's now. I was going to swap them out tonight, but considering I only had 2 hours of sleep last night, I'm taking some tylenol PM's and going to bed.... yes, at 6:45. I'm utterly exhausted.

With that being said, it'll probably be Friday before they're mailed out, but I will post to confirm when they leave the nest.

My pages came today. thanks to Camcas, Joyflower, Princess Scary and cbshai for their wonderful pages. thanks, Corrie, for hosting.
I haven't figure out a good way for me to display chunky pages so I have not been making so many. However, Corrie, your chunky page swaps are so compelling, I feel I have to join them. I enjoyed thinking of items to send along and then seeing how someone else used them.
