    #12 Japanese Moleskine Party Time 2011 (full)

    Ok I'm caving and ready to host a new molie group

    Mixed media - International - theme tbd

    who is still looking to be in a group?

    ************************************************** *********
    this swap requires a huge amount of your time – there will be no withdrawls once you are accepted into the circle. Be very sure you are ready to take this on both in time and money – you will be looking at an 8 mth commitment.
    you will need a Japanese Album Pocket Moleskine, you can find them at http://www.amazon.com/Moleskine-Japa...3706515&sr=8-1 and also at http://www.moleskineus.com/japanesebook.html

    ************************************************** ************
    The rules that will keep us all happy <G>

    *You Promise that you will see this thru to the end – no flaking allowed!
    *You must be an actively trading member (defined as: positive iTrader across 2 swaps in the last 3 months)
    *You must have 3+ months in good standing (no neutrals or negative iTraders)
    *You have an iTrader rating of 25+
    *You are willing and able to do your very best work
    *you will mail on time – the 1st of each month.
    *You must ship eight journals around the world using MANDATORY tracking/Delivery Confirmation – no media mail

    If something unforseen (major major stuff not just getting behind) you are willing to send the journal ahead and have it come back at the end when you are able to work on it - this will only be allowed on a trail by trail basis.
    you are willing to share your mailing info, a phone number and list a contact person - this is to be sure no journals go MIA - info will only be shared with your fellow circle members - it's truely Heartbreaking when a journal is lost forever due to a member going MIA.


    ************************************************** ***********
    purchase your moleys,- they are appox. 3.5”x5.5” – pick out a theme - fill out and decorate the first non-accordian pages with your name, address, and travel plan - You may decorate the cover or not - Then, the first 3 pages are all yours - This is a good time to establish your theme and color scheme – this will give your fellow artist a better sense of your theme.

    you will create a four page layout in each journal you receive – Please do only your very best work

    Optional – include a little something extra in the back pocket of the journal for the artist working on your journal – this can be a bit of pretty fiber, or art paper - atc– signurture card- small charm – bookmark – what ever catches your fancy - This is just for fun – some of members want to play, but no pressure on anyone to participate


    ************************************************** ***********
    remember to mail on TIME and use first class mail with Mandatory tracking/delivery Confirmations - use a well padded bubble envie, sturdy box or a small Flat Rate Box - for $4.95 to anywhere in the US, at any weight up to 70 lbs., Priority Mail shipping takes just 2-3 days, in the USA.
    After you mail post to the thread that you have mailed and post the tracking/delivery confirmations.

    For eyecandy check out the gallerys here and there are several groups at flickr
    (links to come)

    so if you are up for all those rules and ready to get on the molie train - pm me or post here in the thread - PLEASE read over the above carefully before signing up. Then get ready for the big art party moleskine blowout

    Participants and themes:

    so if you would still like to join there is room for 8 people in the molie group

    I vote mid-January for first mailing. I got the journal, but I need TIME. Christmas is chaos in our family and lasts for two weeks!!

    ETA: I'd love to have a Zetti journal! Animals, people, or both!
    Art2Live has a wonderful Zetti tute here: http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/show...=17351&page=13 so be sure to check it out.

    I agree. Mid-January or early February is best for me. I just ordered my journal.

    Just a quick question that GG can answer at any time at her convenience.

    Since I'd like to do Zetti and have pointed toward Vee's tute, I was wondering if it's okay to gesso the entire surface of the accordion?

    I know that I just, just ordered my very first jar of gesso and also know that not everyone has it or has different brands. I just think if I do the gesso for the entire art surface, that's one less step for everyone else, and the gesso layer is even and consistent.

    Is it okay to do collage work in these? I just see a lot of hand drawn or painted work?

    GoldenWolf - yes on the collage - I did quite a bit of collage in the two I was in

    PennyQuilter - it's stuck in the middle up at the top - four page layout and yes on the accordion type - Moleskine Pocket Japanese - I have a couple of links in the first posting

    which I updated since you looked at it earlier so it was missing that info when you first signed up
