Due date: April 1st, 2009
Signup by: Until full
Number of participants: 25 max
Number of pages: 4 for 4 or 8 for 8
Size of Pages: 4x4"



Chunky Book Swap: Wonderful Trees (round II)!




This swap is for tree-themed chunky book pages: whimsical trees, collaged trees, bare trees, winter trees, beautiful trees, realistic trees, etc. This swap is OPEN media, meaning you can use any media you want to create your pages--hand painted/drawn, mixed media, collage, digital, fabric, etc.


Please make these pages super chunky! Most people bind them on the left edge of the page, so leave 1/2" of it free from chunk :).



Chunky Book Swap Guidelines:

1) Each player who joins can send between 4/4 or 8/8 pages, 4x4" in size. Whatever you send, that is what you will get back in this swap. Please send your best work!



2) All players must pay for their own postage, including international participants. The last swap cost about $3.50-$4 in postage for 8 pages. International shipping runs about $5. Please send it as loose stamps or well concealed cash. I can also take paypal (send to adriayna (at) yahoo (dot) com)


3) International participants - All participants are REQUIRED to send postage, including international participants. My post office, in fact, does accept International Reply Coupons. You can send me IRCs if you'd like or else you can send me postage via paypal or US stamps if you have them. International shipping should be about $5 USD. If sending IRCs, you should send 6 of them.

4) Bubble mailers-- please send me a bubble mailer to mail your pages back in (I will reuse bubble mailers that you send if you send an address label). The bubble mailer should have your complete return address on it. On the back, put your userID and swap name.


5) All pages should be IN MY HANDS by April 1st, 2009. PM me for my address when you are ready to send.

6) Backs should be decorated nicely, maybe some scrapbook paper layers or a stamp, with your artist info. Make them look good since they are seen in the book.

7) Please make sure your pages are sturdy and thick - mat board, or several layers of watercolor paper/cardstock for backing.

as of this morning, my trees are on their way! i forgot to scan them before chunking them up, then didn't photograph them, so they're kind of a surprise, i guess. i used transparencies of tree photographs to overlay my collaged pages . . . so different than my pages from the last tree swap!

Mine went postal today. I forgot to scan them beforehand though...Mine are all pretty much the same too. All painted in acrylics so each is unique, yet the same.

03-24-2009, 09:35 AM
It doesn't really matter if they are "samey" or not, cause no participant is going to get more than one page :P.
