Sign ups are Closed.

Swap Due Date – September 15th , 2008 must be in my hands
Signup Date: Until Full
Withdraw Date: August 31st
Number of Cards - 4-10 pages (max # of pages)
Number of participants - 30
no Itrader minimum

This swap is for a 4x6 house shaped chunky book, suggested themes: childhood, dreams, also works inspired by In This House by Angela Cartwright, however the theme is pretty open to what you interpret as HOME.

Get sturdy 4X6 bases - it can be cardstock, bristol paper, etc. cut at the right and left to make a roof on the top. i'm sorry i dont have a template, but if you look at the 1st link below you can see these chunky book pages and that is the basic shape i am looking for. think of the house as 4x4 page, but with a 2 inch roof on top.

Mixed Media works only, 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, you can make a minimum of 4 pages or a max of 10 pages, which is a great way to get into chunky books as it takes less time then making 15 pages.

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 September 15th 2008.

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/International participants: send well-concealed cash and/or US stamps or paypal + an address label ( remember to include your ATA username) to return your chunky book pages. No bubble envelopes needed please i plan on reusing yours, i also have a ton of bubble envelopes to reuse.

My paypal email is seasecrets @ gmail.com. please, when sending money tell me your ATA username and any other pertinent info, + please send an extra .50 cents for covering paypal fees
Here are the estimated postage costs :
US/Canada: $2 for 4 pages/$3 for 8-10 pages
everywhere else: $3 for 4 pages/$5 for 8-10

How far up the straight sides do we go before cutting the angle of the roof? I guess what I want to know is the house is 4 inches wide, the top of the roof is 6 inches high, but how high are the walls only?

curbsidetreasure
06-28-2008, 01:12 PM
the "walls" are also 4 inches - look at it this way: it's basically a 4x4 page with a 2 inch roof on top. dont' worry too much about being exact. everyones house pages will come out a little bit different, and thats ok, just try and stick to that general size and it will be fine.

The 1st one says: "She did not know what was going on in her heart, since she was an inexperienced girl."

The 2nd one says: "After this, Chloe's only wish was to see Daphnis in the bath again."

They are both image transfered onto a painted and crackled background. The 2nd page is a woman getting into a tub, kinda hard to tell from the pic.

my chunky houses are ready to go! I always wanted a play house when I was little, and now I finally have one! I made a dozen, 10 for the swap, 1 for the hostess and 1 to keep. All different colours, but the same idea. The stick girl is on a transparency, with glitter (always need glitter). I thought about adding some Text to the front, but nothing seemed to work right....
