    LIST: 1-1 page trades for your journals - The Happy Bookers

    Happy Bookers Page Trades List

    NOTE: This is a list thread, so please post listings only.

    This thread will let everyone have the fun of creating a circle journal without the timetable of mailings that cj groups follow. If you are already in a circle journal group, you can get extra pages for your journals easily, as well, by signing on to accept pages from traders not part of your circle group. If you are not in a cj group, consider joining one to fill your journal faster!

    How’s the swap work?

    It works as a clearinghouse - rather like an online dating service! You create your ‘ad’ listing your journal and what you want. Others read your ad and contact you to arrange a trade. The two of you work out the details any way you wish and you’re in business!

    Here’s what you do:
    1. Prepare your ‘ad’ for the swap thread.
    2. Consider what you want or don’t want in your journal.
    - Are there any art techniques you want to encourage - or exclude?
    - Are you open to art that is openly religious, edgy, suggestive, political, or irreverent?
    3. Note pertinent info: theme, size of page, number of pages per artist, your country (so swappers can check postage costs).
    4. Decide whether you are willing to accept an international trade or want to keep the mailings within your own country only.
    5. Then, just post your ‘ad’ here as an invitation to other artists to trade pages with you!

    Then what?
    Everyone is free to browse the ad listings. When you find one that interests you, send a private message to the person and arrange the trade details between the two of you, just as you would for any 1-1 trade. That’s all there is to it!

    Not sure how to word your listing?
    Here’s a sample:
    Jean: Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada.
    Theme: Rain
    Details: 8x8 journal, 2-page spread per artist (1 of them to include artist info)
    Accepting: All techniques, as long as original work neatly done, and INTERNATIONAL trades
    Not accepting: work that is religious, political, edgy.
    Comments: I love the rain...golden windows on a grey rainy day...wet streets....puddle reflections. I love to see people hurrying by with umbrellas or huddled in doorways to get out of the rain. I want my journal to be a beautiful celebration of rainy days!
    What I can do in return: I love collage, watercolour and drawing. Check my gallery for samples of my work.”


    So, what are you waiting for? Post your journal and invite artists to trade pages with you!

    Size: 8x8

    1 or 2 page spreads: Art on front, artist info on back.

    Theme: Dark and creepy in your own style, whatever that might be. As in, if you enjoy doing manga pages, then by all means do (same goes for any style you might enjoy doing whether it's cute or steampunk or whimsical or whatever). Anything goes as long as you put a dark/creepy/macabre edge to it. I love all things Halloween & DOTD and spooky.

    *And in return I am willing to try most anything you'd like. Any theme, any size.
    I'm a HD artist & willing to trade for any medium as long as it's done with care.
