this is an example of a windows & doors collage i did on a 6x6 inch masonite panel

This swap is for a 4x4" chunky book, in the theme of Windows and Doors. Any medium is welcome, of course please do your best work in the swap, and this should be work you are proud to share. Originals only, you may make similar pages or every page differently but each page must be original artwork.

In this chunky book, each player makes a page for each other player. There is going to be 15 players in this chunky book swap, so you'll be making 14 pages (15 if you want one for yourself).

The backs of the pages should not be blank. They can be decorated simply with nice colored paper or whatever else you wish, along with your name + username and contact info but absolutely NO BLANK pages.

Please keep in mind that these pages are going to be in a BOOK or HUNG ONTO A WALL. So don’t put chunky stuff on top of pages . The chunky part of the book means fibers, wire, beads, and things dangling off of and around the pages. The pages themselves can have a little bit of embellishment. You can put chunky things on the right side or bottom. Please don't include embellishments on the left side, since the left side is being bound onto a book

For the chunky book, I will let everyone do their own binding.

Due: The chunky book pages will be due IN MY HANDs by June 16th 2008. This should give you ample time to make the pages.

Shipping:
Both US and International participants must pay for their own return postage on this one because of the cost involved in shipping.

US participants can send well-concealed cash and/or stamps along with a BUBBLE ENVELOPE to return your chunky book pages. When sending your bubble envelope, please write your address and ATA username.

International participants... I can provide the bubble envelope for the international participants to save on their shipping here. But I cannot cover your postage. One way to send me money is through paypal. My paypal email is seasecrets @ gmail.com. please, when sending money tell me your ATA username and any other pertinent info.

Here are the estimated postage costs :
US/Canada: $3
Europe: $6
Austraila/New Zealand: $8

Nope, not yet! Maybe I can find some nebie swaps first and sit this one out. Then I'll be all set for the next swap I'd like to do.

lily - were you a member of atcards.com? right now i dont see any itrader ratings (this is what you get from a host when you successfully complete a swap) and you need 10 itrader ratings to join the swap

Lily Lemon

No, I wasn't. I've swapped in flickr groups with you before, though. It's ok -- I found some newbie friendly swaps so I can get some ratings that way!

I'm way excited, I got 7 of my pages 'mostly' done today, layers and layers of photos and tissue paper, glazes, paper laces, ink, etc.
I'll scan when the stickiness dries...

They are a rustic, sepia toned, vintagey foreign look....

All of them are pretty similar in design, but each has a few unique qualities. So everyone will be getting something with a tree inside and opening doors. Ladies, those took me so many hours to make them all...I can't even tell you how many!

egrobeck
03-19-2008, 06:42 AM
thank you so much, Dana! I appreciate the effort, and I'm sure everyone else does, too! I'm thrilled they're all similar - which means they're all fabulous - whoohoo! I still haven't decided how I'm going to make mine - like you I want them to have opening doors and/or windows but not sure I will have the time to do that - will have to see. I'm also considering beeswax, but again I really have no clear idea yet. Most likely I'll sit down to make them and they'll just make themselves.

Egrobeck - oh, they were SO time intensive. But worth it, lol. The opening doors were so much fun to make!


I just finished my skinny book pages for poshcot's Shabby Chic swap, and wow, were they time intensive! but not as much as the Marie Antionette chunky book pages were - I used fabric backgrounds and added lots of bead trimmings and lace and fibers - now those were time consuming! I think it took me maybe 1-1/2 to 2 hrs to make one square but it was really worth it - making art is pure therapy for me so I don't mind, and it's nice to be able to send out really nice cards to everyone. but i still think your cards for this swap are totally awesome! and I am so happy I'm going to get one, thank you!! - woohoo!

well, I've cleared my committments now (except for 1 other book) so next weekend I'll start making my doors & windows - can't wait to get started, too. everyone's work here has really inspired me to get going on these!

Okay, still in process of repping everyone. Some artists I won't be able to rep right away because I've received art from other swaps from you and I may have recently repped you and the system won't let me rep you again until others have been reped, but I will make a list so I can eventually rep you.
