Trick or Treat! Smell My Feet!

A Halloween Mixed-Media Chunky Book Pages Swap

Okay, I can't wait. I am like a big freakin' kid! Let's get a head start on Halloween!

In this swap, each page should relate to Halloween. Trick-or-treating in costumes, scary wicked witches on the fly, or vintage Halloween images . . . it's up to you! I think that with everyone's unique take on this holiday, we should all see some fantastic, varied returns!

You'll be making 4 OR 8 pages to send in . . . and you'll receive the same number of pages in return, each page from a different artist.

These will be due on October 1. Try to make any withdrawals by September 15--if you decide you can't complete the swap for any reason, it's totally fine! Things come up, and priorities change. I'm cool with that! However, if you choose to withdraw after Sept. 15, it will be more than likely too late to replace you in the swap, and that's a bum deal for anyone on the wait-list.

If pages are late without communication, or if a withdrawal from the swap isn't communicated with me before October 1 [the swap due date], I will leave a neutral iTrader rating for those participants. Basically, just let me know what's up, and all is good.

This swap is for 4"x4" chunky book pages. This is an MIXED MEDIA chunky book--so make sure you are comfortable with this medium before signing up. On the host forum recently, the idea of "effort, not expertise" was discussed--and that's what i'd like to see here. All artists should confidently send in work that highlights their own level of skill, but all the results should consistently show time and care.

ALL pages must be original artwork. Also, mixed media work should contain at least three different mediums [like paint, photography and marker. or rubber-stamping, paper collage and pen].

Please make pages that are appealing on both leaves--don't leave the backs blank. Include your name & artist ID on the back of each page, but feel free to also include other info [date, location, title of page, or whatever].

Use a thicker paper or light board for the pages themselves--the chipboard from cereal boxes & cake mixes is a perfect, cheap answer. The minimum thickness would be postcard-weight. Mat board would be the thickest you'd want to go.

note: pages cut from "recycled" food boxes can be covered with papers or text pages, or painted/gessoed--if you don't want people to know you eat FrankenBerry.

Remember these pages are intended [in theory] to be used in a book. Please do not place chunky embellishments on the left edges, as this is where people usually choose to bind them. Everyone will be binding their own returns.

Chunky pages can have fibers, wire, beads, tags and/or assorted weird things dangling off of and around the edges. The pages themselves should not be so thick that they can't close comfortably into a book. Look at the posted images in other chunky swap threads, or see the examples below [coming soon] for more ideas. Feel free to use sewing machine stitching, staples, brads, eyelets and other more offbeat fasteners on your pages.

Please avoid sticky pages . . . each card should be enclosed in a sandwich/zippie bag, as the other options (wax paper, bubble wrap, envies, plastic wrap) are harder to swap. Cheapo bags from the dollar store are fine--these also keep your pages from melting into one giant heap.

U.S. Postage:
SASE--When you take your chunky book pages to have them mailed, BEFORE sealing the envelope, have it weighed and then add the same amount of loose postage to the envelope. Or, if you like, pop 2 well-concealed dollars in the envelope. Three dollars if you choose to send 8 pages.

International Postage:
International players can send U.S. currency, or use PayPal. PayPal will require a 50-cent bump, to cover their fee. These are low-ball estimates; I'll cover any overages in postage cost.
Canada: 2.50 [3.00 PayPal] for four pages, or 3.50 [4.00 PayPal] for eight pages.
Australia/Europe: 4.00 [4.50 PayPal] for four pages, or 5.00 [5.50 PayPal] for 8.

NOTE TO ALL PLAYERS RE: POSTAGE . . . I love super-chunky pages, so I'm not setting any limits, but be kind-hearted. If you're pages are crazy thick or super heavy, toss an extra couple of stamps or an extra buck in your envelope.

Chunkies will be due IN MY HANDS by October 1, 2008. This gives everyone a LOT of time to get pages done & mailed. Late pages will not be swapped, and will be returned to the original artist[s].

When you're ready, you can mail your pages to me at:

Amy L. Sargent
P. O. Box 174
Roseburg, OR 97470 US

Everyone, including me, can only sign up for eight maximum pages, so we reach maximum variety in returns!

As all the Witches gather around the giant cauldron to mull over their pages, a thick green fog emerges from the pot, was it the wing of bat, eye of newt or maybe the fresh green frog that caused it?

Nobody knows for sure, but Amy is missing her socks!!!!!!

Thank you for making me laugh out loud this morning!

07-05-2008, 01:12 PM
OK. I have been googling and studying chunky book pages. I must say that many I have found look too "artys/craftsy" ie. just some buttons and lace and fibers stuck on a card with no real eye for design presented.

Can someone steer me to a site of an artist who does a really wonderful job with these? I hunted gallery and found lots of great stuff there. I'm looking for an outside source to give me fresh ideas that I can borrow from. Thanks.

katilady
07-05-2008, 01:20 PM
Look in Amyfaerie's gallery! Hers are awesome!

stillatthetop
07-05-2008, 02:47 PM
Wow. I'll say! She sure does enough of them, eh? And the layers!!! Wow. Thanks! I did catch her gnome pages earlier. I never thought to view her whole gallery, though. I just viewed things from the search page. I will have to go back and take a better look at the gallery pages I admire.

amyfaerie
07-05-2008, 03:50 PM
stillatthetop, lemme see what i can do . . . to point you in the right direction! if anyone else can, that's great, too.

if you haven't seen the new ArtTrader [issue 3] there is a section on chunky pages, and there are a LOT of different styles on display. that might help, too! :D

susie, i am gonna beat your limey ass next time i see you!

amyfaerie
07-05-2008, 03:54 PM
gasp! you rotten bugger, kati . . . i'd have never pointed you to my own, stillatthetop! :embarrassed:

regardless . . . there are lots of other peeps around the site who make fab pages!

hey, SEMOKraftee, i'm adding you! glad to have ya! :D you'll love making chunkies!

Chronata
07-05-2008, 04:08 PM
Ok...I need another swap like I need another hole in my head...
oh wait...I do want to get another piercing...

But anyway....

I shouldn't sign up for this...
I really shouldn't.

But I want to anyway.
It's a long way away...and those aren't really that many pages to do! And I LOVE Halloween...and I can use collage bits from my previous halloweeny stuff, mixed with new drawings...and and...

Yes. I guess I am signing up!

susietex
07-05-2008, 04:13 PM
Wow that magic brew finally got to Chroata, I knew it was strong potion, she couldn't resist!!!!!

stillatthetop
07-05-2008, 04:19 PM
Yes. I read the Art Trader cover to cover (or is that screen to screen?). And amyfaerie...I like your pages. They have a lot going on with interest. I was just hoping that maybe someone had access on flickr to some other artists not members here, so that if I borrow ideas they will be new ones, and not just repeats of the types of things that I have seen here. I am sure the sky is the limit with these, and there must be thousands of things you can do to create them.

OOooops..... erm, no of course not, it was an evil green frog, not a nice friendly spotty frog like you.

amyfaerie
07-05-2008, 08:03 PM
lol! you silly susiewitch! :D don't boil the other players!

chronata, i'm so glad you've caved . . . it IS a long way off, so i'm sure you can tell yourself you'll have plenty of time for a few more pages . . . just like the rest of us have! glad you add you to the roster!

amyfaerie
07-05-2008, 08:11 PM
okay, stillatthetop, i gotcha. flickr has a few groups, if you search "chunky book" or "fat book" on flickr. this one: http://www.flickr.com/groups/chunky_book_arts/ has some of "our" artists, and some who are not on A4A, at least not the usual suspects. LOL!

when i google, i can use "chunky book" or "fat book" and get mixed results--like you point out, some pages are really crafty/scrapbooky, which isn't necessarily my bag, either, but some pages i've come across are just awesome!

amyfaerie
07-05-2008, 08:13 PM
oh, and if you do a google IMAGE search for "fat book," some great stuff comes up that's posted on artistblogs! i was surprised!

Batraplume
07-06-2008, 06:57 AM
There's also this blog : http://4x4friday.wordpress.com/
It's only about 4x4 and they don't seem to have chunkies or danglies but it gives some other ideas.

amyfaerie
07-06-2008, 08:19 AM
isa, that's a great link! there are great weekly challenges in there . . . lots of ideas for all different sorts of 4x4 pages. thank you for sharing it--i've never found it before! :D

hey! you're up to 6 iTraders, batraplume! congrats!

oh, and i'm waiting to be approved for membership at a Yahoo group called "chubbyville," which is all for chunky book pages and 4x4s!

Batraplume
07-06-2008, 09:10 AM
Amy, I'm waiting for 4 more pages to arrive in the US. If I get a Itrader of 10 before the signup date, I'll be able to join the Garden gnome swap. I'm already working on my pages right now, in case of...!

By the way, at the beginning of this thread you're talking about a discussion dealing with "effort, not expertise". Can you give the link to this thread please, so that I can see what you are waiting for? Thanks!

i think the ones in rockstargirl's gallery are coming my way for this swap . . . if you're hanging out in the gallery, you've gotta see them. the quotes are way awesome!

gene simmons on a chunky page? LOL! i love it!

Hi. I'm new. Can I join your swap? It will be my first swap on atcsforall.com

I'm making pages for my first chunky book for a swap on swap-bot. The swap host there said to make my pages 4' by 4.25' , with the extra .25 for the binding. Is that what everyone does, or does 4' by 4' actually mean 4' by 4'. I'll bet it does. Stupid question.

Thank you!

goodmorningstarshine, i'd love to have you in the swap, but can i ask to wait until you fill in your profile a bit and upload some art to the gallery?

i'm in oregon, btw, but we are waiting for credit approval on a rental house. we should know by monday or tuesday. in the meantime, i don't have my laptop, and i'm jumping on my MIL's computer when i get a few minutes here and there.

oh my . . . lovely pages! i have to back up and read a page or two . . . but in the meantime i want to say THANK YOU to everyone for hanging in there while i've been offline!

long story short, we found a house . . . but the day we found it, MIL kicked us out. we needed another day or two to set up household and get utilities switched to our names, but she put us out on our ear.

cats in a tizzy, me in tears, husband ready to kill his mum . . . and then told a week before internet connection could be installed. AND, though it's been put in, it's still not working wirelessly, so i'm tethered to the modem by a 2-foot ethernet cable.

oh, and apparently the only place with free wifi in roseburg, oregon is a really scarey mexican "family restaurant" that always looks empty.

anyhow, i'll be catching up on the site in general in the next few days, including starting up iTraders. the packages i've received--i've not even opened yet, for fear of losing something. now that the art space is unpacked a bit, i'll have iTraders caught up over the weekend.

whew! SO SORRY for leaving you all high and dry for over a week! you're awesome for letting me take care of life . . . now i should be back at least once a day, even while i'm getting the wireless network up and running. :D

if you've dropped out of the swap, or are waiting to take an opening, i'll be making sure those updates are made, too, asap. i haven't begun looking through PMs yet.

i have missed this site--and everyone on it--SOOO much! i can't tell you. i could cry.

I've been looking around for do dads to hang off the pages - so far there is more Christmas stuff out than Halloween but I'm starting to see a bit more now - now for a coupon to Michales that would be nice. I have some for hobby lobby so hitting them up this week.

Can't wait to get started on these - will be working on some backgrounds this weekend - I know pretty much what I want just have to pull it together now. :jiggy: tooooo fun!

I have 6 made and want to make a few more, but I want to do something totally different. I bought a new set of Halloween rubber stamps that are super cool. Including a spiral with cobwebs, an argyle bat, and a crow.

I made some Halloween shrinky dinks with my new stamps to hang off the edge.

GG, usually Michael's will honor other stores coupons, like Hobby Lobby and Joanne's, so you could go there instead if you really wanted to.

Martha Stewart does have some of the best Halloween crap, I agree! Last year I got a bunch of stamps and things after Halloween. I was just admiring the punches the other day.

Oh thanks - I'll try that - I know JoAnns did but wasn't sure about Michales - will have to call them up again and complain - I use to get coupons in the newspaper but they don't send them to my zip code any more - dern it.
your stamps sound cool - I've been wanting to buy some new ones on line but haven't broken down to do it yet.

amyfaerie - will have to try to find that - I'm having deep withdrawls from a lack of michales coupons <G>


I have 6 made and want to make a few more, but I want to do something totally different. I bought a new set of Halloween rubber stamps that are super cool. Including a spiral with cobwebs, an argyle bat, and a crow.

I made some Halloween shrinky dinks with my new stamps to hang off the edge.

GG, usually Michael's will honor other stores coupons, like Hobby Lobby and Joanne's, so you could go there instead if you really wanted to.

At least in Canada, they've stopped printing coupons. Now you have to sign up for email alerts. Saves trees, anyway!

They now send you coupons through email, just like Hobby Lobby does. If you go to their website you can sign up. Also, at my Michael's if you don't have your coupon, you just tell them that and they will just make you sign a little thing and give you the money off. I know some Michael's will do that and some won't so you should just ask.

I like those creepy pages but I think I'll stick with some cute witches and black cats and pumpkins stuff... I don't want to let DarkMysia on the loose because I can't get her back in the box so easily. ;) :biglaugh:

Creepy is OK with me, and I love those pages Kati...but the dead baby does make me a little sad. It is so tiny and peaceful. Are those bullet casings on that other "bondage" one? Neat!

I'm choosing to keep mine in a bit more of the childlike play theme, too. We shall call those the pretend creepy, instead of the realistic creepy.

Kat - the pages are AWESOME!! Love your style and hope I get one of your pages in my returns!!! I'm more of a "Halloween" kind of girl vs. "Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin", LOL. (Bet you couldn't tell that from MY pages, huh??) I'm excited about receiving returns for this swap!!!

katilady

speaking of smelling feet - they had a thing on this radio station where they made one of the djs chew the toenails off another dj's foot. hahahahahaha

also kiss a dog on the butt - and I don't mean his rump. all to go to sturgis.

kati - lots of your stuff is uber-creepy! love it!

nice . . . i look away for half a day, and look what happens! it becomes all about my feet! LOL!

chaosatlanta, i do NOT know how i missed you in my rereads of the pages; i'm so sorry! i had a bad few weeks, but even so . . . it was an unintentional oversight, i promise!

you are officially on the waitlist, and if i don't hear from sewingbea by the end of this week [she was the last waitlister to be offered an opening] to confirm her new spot, i'll pop her back on the waitlist & add YOU to the swap! :)
