    ZEN BOOK GROUP --Due by July 7, 2009

    Due Date: No later than July 7, 2009
    Sign Up Date: as soon as group is Full
    Withdrawl Date: NO WITHDRAWLS
    Number of participants: 8 (7 pages plus yourself)
    INFO: For this swap I will mail you a book with seven blank pages. You will be decorating both sides of the page and mailing directly to each person in the group.

    http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gall...ex.php?n=76401 Here is a picture of the book
    http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gall...ex.php?n=77761 Here is the practice page for covering the blank page.

    I have had this on my mind and in my cupboard for ages. I purchased the cardboard scrapbooks pictured above. The pages are 4 1/2x6 inches, and are unfinished gray and need to be painted with paint, gesso or covered with paper. The covers are mostly black and white but can easily be altered.


    # of pages: 7 (both sides on each) you will mail to each person


    RULES

    **I will be mailing you a book. Since I purchased the book, and will spend the postage this will be a NO WITHDRAWL SWAP (unless it is a REAL emergency)

    **There will be a commitment for a 1for1 page trade with each person in the group. itraders will be given when page is recieved, negative itraders will be given if you do not fullfill your part of the trade.

    **Due date no later than July 7, so we have some kind of deadline for those of us that procrastinate. But go ahead and make your trades when you get your pages done. No reason to just hang onto them.

    ART PART of the RULES
    **Do not leave the background gray. I tried painting it with white gesso and did not like drawing on this. Covering with paper works good.
    *The page is 4 1/2 x 6 with holes on one edge, the whole page can be decorated with paint or paper and then ...

    **A zentangle at least 3 1/2 x 5 1/2inches will be on both sides of the page. You can cover the whole page to if you wish.

    ** on one side of the page you must have username, it would also be nice to have real name and location if it fits. Try to make it look nice wherever you put it. It will be seen and not hidden like the back of an atc.

    ** Zentangles may be any theme you wish, black and white with color added is fine unless someone has a request for just black and white.

    **with zentangles I see no reason for embelishments or bulk, but if you wish to do something bulky talk to the person recieving it FIRST

    ** IF anyone wants ONLY Black and White let me know and I'll make a note of it next to your name...

    NOTE YOUR ADDRESS WILL BE SHARED WITH THE OTHER PEOPLE IN THIS GROUP

    OK I signed all of you that I had talked to.

    Please let me know if you are only interested in Black & White Zentangles for your book, and I'll make a note next to your name.

    Also post your pages here before mailing them so we can all enjoy them!!!

    I'm so glad you are. I think these books will be fun. I'll be mailing them out Monday or Tuesday. I wish the post office was open on Saturday!

    I bought two kinds of envelopes yesterday to see which will work best. But mailing the single pages will be a lot easier.

    Either way (color and/or B/W) works for me. Even more than one color is good.

    Linda, hmm, can we do anything with the background giving it, it's own texture then applying a nice cardstock/paper in the center with our original zen on it???

    ..OR..does the whole card need to be zentangle?

    Also I was wondering, would it be okay to draw a pictorial Zentangle???

    I was thinking one side I may have a type of picture zentangle then on the back do a original zentangle with my information in the center of it. What ya think???

    Linda: Thank You!!! for putting the post # beside the names. I tell you, I said the other day I was going to give up swaps if I couldn't find a better way to find folks in a thread. Some people never post in a swap, other than to say they want to join. So, I have been going to the 1st page of a swap and working forward until I could find my person. SHEESH!!! You, my dear, have made giving iTraders so much easier

    reference: finding people in a swap in order to give them reps. At the top of every page in the swap thread there is a "search" function. Click on that, and type in the username and it will take you to the posts by that person. Hope this helps.

    Meanwhile, while I'm cutting papers for the pages, I thought, "How nice if I were able to print my location on the pages with my printer" which led me to think I could print on 4 x 6 pages which then led me to think...."AH HA! Maybe I could print the line at the bottome of a 4 x 6 photo sheet for which my printer has as special printing function." So, I tried using my Sharpie pen on the paper (glossy) and it works great. And it's the perfect size to cover the grey page without covering the holes and all that's needed is to trim the corners.

    Sooooooooo. I think I will print the line at the bottom of the pages with the printer so they will look nice. Maybe a fancy, zen-like font.
