I was clicking thru blogs and ran across this page

http://www.art-e-zine.co.uk/Belgothic.html

Just love the look of the book - so of course I couldn't wait to post a swap :)
this one is larger than the one I'm thinking of - 4" wide by 6" high would make a nice book or wall hanging

* Pages need to be in my hands by April 6, 2009

* last sign up/or drop date: March 30, 2009

* This will be a 4 or 6 page for 4 or 6 pages in return

Click here for templet - 15821
when you print - set your printer at 113% size to get the correct size on the templet

just added it to my flickr site - download it and print full size page and you get the correct size too.

*Base - please use something sturdy - such as watercolor paper or chipboard from cereal boxes - mat board would be a bit too thick for this - Please keep chunkies off the left edge so that these can be bound

* And please post pics of your beauties to the thread - that's part of the fun - seeing all the wonderful pages everyone makes :)


Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from!

Please add me to this swap. I love the shape of the pages. I did look through the previous swap to see if there is some sort of common theme. Lots of vintage. but some without people.Seems to be whatever you want. Of does there have to be some connection with the gothiness of the page?

goatgoddess
02-02-2009, 12:55 PM
April - easy peasy :)

artrageous
02-02-2009, 06:54 PM
ok, just to be sure.... would these be like chunkies?

crftyscrapper
02-02-2009, 07:37 PM
From what I understand they are like chunkies with minimal chunkiness (flattish bits with little to no fibers).

Somebody please correct me if I am wrong!

goatgoddess
02-03-2009, 12:35 PM
crftyscrapper has stated it correctly - thanks! :)

need to post some from the last swap - hope to have enough time this weekend to get alllll the way caught up again :)

goatgoddess
02-18-2009, 02:48 PM
0Juxtapozed0fetus0 and tmfmom - will be watching for them - thanks!

adifferentstory - welcome to the swap - we aren't hanging as much on these so that if you want to set them on a table hooked together you can. most of the ones I got didn't have anything hanging off and just a bit of chunky on the face of the arch.

02-18-2009, 03:24 PM
Thanks for letting me know. I've made a start on them and didn't want to go any further before I found out.

I noticed most are doing a girl/woman/child theme. Did I miss something? IS that the theme we're going with here? The pages I've seen so far are AWESOME!! This is going to be a great swap.

And what about CHUNK?? A little or medium or oodles???

goatgoddess
03-04-2009, 10:01 AM
Marla412 - welcome to the swap :) glad you are joining - the chunk factor is little to medium - mostly on the face of the page - that way if you want to hing them to set on a shelf they will work that way but will also work for a book.

as for theme - it's wide open - I've gotten trees, flowers, girls, zettie - a little bit of everything. :)

Dear Ms. Goddess of Goats,

I made too many pages. I don't know what I was thinking. I made 1 for me, 1 for you, and 8 for trading. I would like to ask you to please examine your heart and ask yourself, Is this really a 6 for 6 swap? Or lurking down deep in it's soul, does this swap really want to be more? Two more?

Thank you for your consideration.

kysunflower, Unlike atcs, I usually make duplicates of the same page. I rarely do collage in chunky swaps, so they're easy to duplicate. The last gothic arch swap I made angel stained glass windows using black cardstock, transparencies, and alchohol inks. This time I made trees with magazine background, gesso, acryllics and glitter. It takes a lot of stress out of the process. My house chunkies were all different, and I know what you mean; it took me for friggin ever and stressed me out to no ends!

Ooooh, goodmorningstarshine is a cheater! I'm telling! :P

Well, if GG is going to be such a pushover, I think I'm pretty sure I mean I accidentally made 14, so I should send all of mine in too, right?
:yes:

goodmorningstarshine
03-08-2009, 08:34 PM
I wouldn't refer to it as cheating. I believe it is efficient utilization of time to create the maximum output of artistic splendor. You have no idea how long it took my to cut out detailed stained glass windows; if I have to think up 10 different ideas for pages, you might wind up with stick figures. ;)

And as far as your 14 pages OY, I think any of us would be happy to know there are more pieces of your work to spread around. :D

OY when you get in a groove you could do chunkies for everyone <g> but let's keep this down to a dull roar on the extras a few here and there is cool but postage rates aren't cheap as we all know <g>

YES! Finally finished mine. I will mail out on the 31st, I've been warned about postage lately, so I was supose to wait until the 1st. the 31st is close, isn't it?
The little girl page has a poem I took from a vintage child's book and didn't want to fully cover the poem up, so I worked around it.

Terrorgirl
03-15-2009, 10:53 AM
another question ladies

what do people do with the backs of the pages (other than our details) is fancy paper ok

goodmorningstarshine
03-15-2009, 11:50 AM
I usually write my info on scrapbook paper on the backs. If I have a stamp that matches the them, I might also stamp that one and color it in...

HHC
03-15-2009, 01:02 PM
I usually do the same background papers on front and back... fancy paper is a cool way to decorate them.

Terrorgirl
03-16-2009, 05:10 AM
ok will have to be creative here then as the bases are inks and will soak through the watercolour paper and damage the front image so collage i think will also strenghten the pages.

goatgoddess
03-16-2009, 06:33 AM
bastcrystal - sorry about your wrist - hope you heal quickly

Terrorgirl - cool arches - thanks for posting :) and on the backs - what they said - sometimes I use paint and rubberstamps sometimes paper - depends on what I used on the front.

Thanks everyone - was on the phone most of the evening after being on the phone most of the afternoon.

my Son's ex wife is his sisters good friend and the his sisters (twins) and his ex are married to 3 brothers - it's all very intermigled but they are all one big family - my son has a daughter with his ex who is now 12 going on 13 - she has always wanted to move in with her Dad and has really been pushing it - her mom (my son's ex) blew up and is reacting way over the top and everyone is reacting to to her actions - anyways drama a plenty - hoping after everyone calms down there is a good solution to this issue - I'm hoping everyone will do what is best for the kid and it may be the best for her to move in with her Dad at least for the summer and she would still see her mom all the time as the families do everything together (my son's daughter and her step dad do not get along at all and never have - her sister is his child and he makes that clear) so it's pretty mixed up

any who - thanks and hopefully the over the top drama will stop soon.
