    I personally am open to whatever media each person is most comfortable with so long as it doesn't render the other pages unusable by the other folks.

    I realized several of the things I sent/ will be sending in the next couple days aren't due till September 5 or later, meaning I won't have iTrader for them until their due dates. I'll have 20 within a week and I guess a month to squeeze in five more individual swaps to ensure it but... blerg, I hate trying to squeeze in, y'know? I ordered 2 moleskines today, just to be prepared

    If youīd like, Iīll do a trade with you! And if we ask nicely, maybe some of the other players as well? There are so few iTraders left, sure we can come up with the ones missing!

    I keep a swap journal, I dug through it after writing that. I'll get five points in August from stuff I've already sent /phew!

    I am happy to trade with Penlowe if that would help?

    Although I have not yet made my choice on theme, I know I will leave the medium open so that everyone can do what they are comfortable with.

    I am the opposite of HHC in that I think I am much better at hand drawn/painted than collage, but that is why I like seeing what others, like HHC, do with collage and other media!

    Bex! I just meant my drawing may not be quite up to your level of drawing... as long as I can collage a bit with it, it will be okay. I don't totally suck, just partially. LOL! You should have what you want in your book.

    And I'm open to whatever media people prefer to use, be it hand drawn/painted or mixed media.

    I'm going to leave my theme 'mixed media' as these swaps are about relaxing and having fun, the last thing I want is for anyone to feel pressurised. But I just thought I'd test the water so to speak. We all just want to gain every artists unique expression of our chosen theme.
    Malin, your travel plan pages are beautiful!

    Iīll change you into mixed media then, Bex. And thanks! I canīt wait to see what you all will do!

    Sounds like youīll be home safe with the iTraders, Penlowe. But if it looks like thereīll be a point or two missing, just holler, and weīll help you out!

    I just realized what my theme needs to be: windows & doors with or without their various metaphors and meanings (i.e. go as deep and philosophical or light & word-less as you feel).

    So if we want a little info about each person on the back of their pages we put that in the book or with it when we mail, right? I hear about it but haven't actually seen it asked in any threads.

    Yes, you could add a little note, and if thereīs anything else you want to say to the players, just send it along your journal. Iīm adding your theme, what media do you want it, anything or something in particular?

    Also, when you get your hands on your books, and when Iīve posted your travel plan - write it in your book, so we know where to send it next. Iīve seen some beautiful travel plan pages in earlier Japanese Moleskines, so make it pretty, and make it along the theme of the rest of your book. At least thatīs my suggestion!

    Bex is only across the water from me, in the Kingdom of Fife, we could almost throw the journals to each other!

    Itīs a good thing, that several of us are in Europe - we get our journals a little faster then... Often Iīm the only one outside of the US, and I get swap returns long after the rest of the players. Iīll try to arrange the travel plan for some inter European travels...

    You could put an eye out like that young lady!

    Malin: I declare open media- whatever floats yer boat! and doesn't weigh a ton to ship.

    I should have mine next week so I'm rolling on swaps to clear some brain space for this.

    Yes, itīs that small. I was a bit surprised too, I had to ask at the shop if this was the only size there was, and it is. Your Japanese Moleskines are surprisingly small!
