    Altered Photo Chunky Page CJ Group 1-FULL

    ALL PHOTO CHUNKIES RECEIVED AND SENT - THANK YOU!

    Chunky Page Circle Journal
    First Mail Date: August 15, 2010
    Withdraw Date – none after theme selection made
    Number of Participants: 6 total (including myself)


    Welcome! This is a challenging (but fun!) swap and there is a lot of information, so please read the complete description before signing up. The same participation requirements as PAT swaps apply: players must have a minimum of 15+ iTrader rating with no negative ratings within the last 6 months. No exceptions.

    This swap will be run Circle-Journal style where we’ll have mailing partners each month. Each player is responsible for (1) altered photo chunky each month for (5) months straight. Keep in mind the time and money commitment before joining, and you must be able to ship internationally. Each player will select a theme for their chunky book, and the group will be taking a photograph of that subject and hand altering that photo to create a unique 4” x 4” chunky made just for you! Once you sign up, please decide on your theme within 3 days. Themes should be easily accessible for all players, but can also be an idea, color, or concept rather than a specific thing. The challenge is for players to grab their cameras and take new photos specifically for this swap, sometimes thinking outside the box to get the perfect shot.

    Photos:

    = Each photo must be taken by you, specifically for this swap.

    = Photos should be printed on photo paper unless you plan on making transparencies or tape transfers. Cardstock does not hold up well to distressing, bleaching, or other photo alterations.

    = Some digital manipulation is okay (changing a photo to Black&White; cropping, etc.) but the majority of altering should be done by hand.

    Chunkies:

    = Page size is 4 inch by 4 inch, and made out of sturdy cardboard, matt board, or at least 2 layers of cardstock.

    = Hand alter your photographs through scratching, sewing, distressing, image transfers, rubber stamps, transparencies, applying alcohol inks, acrylics, gesso, watercolors, markers and any other media to alter and enhance the photo. Please use at least 2 methods in your creation. I'll be posting links and examples shortly, but feel free to share links and examples of your own!

    = Dangly bits, fibers, charms, and chunky embellishments are encouraged.

    = Make sure to leave a inch on the left side of each page free from embellishments so your partner will be able to bind (unless noted).

    = Backs should be decorated or at minimum cleaned up with patterned paper. Be sure to include your artist information and any background you’d like to share on the photograph and techniques used.


    TO JOIN
    = Post to the thread and provide your theme (within 3 days of joining)

    = Send me a Private Message with your contact information: real name, street address, mailing address if different, telephone numbers, and email.

    = Promise to post when you send and receive your chunky pages, and follow all swap guidelines.

    Once the player list is full I will post the mailing schedule and email you the details. I'd like to have the first set of pages ready to mail the week of August 15th, about 1 month from now. And lastly, iTraders are left for all participants (Positive when you receive a page and Negative if you do not).

    PLAYERS
    1. kristinized - flower closeups/macro (any kind of flowers are fine)
    Note: I'm not planning on binding my pages so no need to keep the left edge free
    2. Penlowe - trees
    3. corrie04 - old metal things (gears and things)
    4. PattiM - the color blue (any shade although Periwinkle is my fave!)
    Note: don't care if the left is decorated
    5. mrubyjean - Glass Bottles
    6. catscradle - animals; macro domestics

    This sounds like fun- and a good excuse to carry my camera with me- which I normally forget to do! I would like my theme to be- "Summertime Activities"-ex: if you like to head to the beach/lake and veg all day in the sun, or BBQ's with fam or friends, vacation travels, or just spending time in the backyard- show me in photos!

    That sounds cool Patti but remember this swap covers 6 months, it'll be Christmas before we are done. Granted we don't get snow where I live but once in a century, but I don't know how many summer activities I can snap pictures of in November.

    Penlowe has good points Patti, we'll be working on these through December so it could be difficult for a summer activity theme in the fall... unless you'd be open to wider artist interpretations (and I don't know how wide, lol!). Would you be willing to come up to an additional theme?

    Did you know that down here Poinsettias are not only perennials but the grow into huge bushes? Flowers I can do all year round, easy peasy

    Patti...how about "seasonal activities", then that would cover summer activities but broaden it for the rest of the year?

    Can I take the last spot?

    I'd love to do my book on animals; macro domestics if possible.
