    LIST: 1:1 Japanese Moleskine Exchange

    This thread is for setting up PERSONAL trades with other members,
    for Japanese Moleskine book pages.

    All books need to be...Japanese Album styled...zigzag folded 3.5x5.5 pages

    Participants need to decide ahead of time how many pages will be completed in the other participants journal

    You can exchange journals individually here - by arranging private trades with anyone posting here.

    This thread is a good way to get yourself oriented to the Art of Moleskine Journals before making the long term commitment of a Moley group exchange and the timetable of mailings..


    Here's how it works?


    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. You can choose which themes you are comfortable making. You do NOT have to swap with everyone who asks, choose the exchanges that are most mutually beneficial for each person involved but please remember to be gracious and mind your manners if someone is not interested in trading at that moment.


    How to post an 'ad' for Japanese Moleskine journal exchanges:

    1. THEME: Declare your theme/topic that you want for your book!
    2. Consider what you want or don’t want in your journal (theme, mediums, etc.)
    - DO's: Are there any art techniques you want to encourage - or exclude?
    - DONT's: \Use profanity, art that is suggestive, political?
    3. LOCATION: Decide whether you are willing to accept an international trade or want to keep the mailings within your own country to keep expenses down.
    4. Any other COMMENTS?
    Then, just post your ‘ad’ here as an invitation to other artists to trade pages with you! REMEMBER, to come back and delete your 'ad' when you are done with your book!


    How to CHOOSE a book to create pages for:

    -Everyone is free to browse the ad listings. When you find one that interests you and you are comfortable with the theme/mediums/limits set, 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!

    -You do NOT have to swap with anyone who asks, choose the swaps that are most mutually beneficial for each person involved, but please keep in mind to be friendly and gracious.

    -Make sure to leave feedback when it arrives, PM your partner when you send, Remember Communication is vital

    What a fun idea, it's a great way to do moleys on your own schedule without committing to a whole year long swap. I'll be back as soon as I work out a theme.

    1. THEME: Colorful Zentangles

    2. DO's: You may use BLACK ink to draw your zentangles and COLOR to give your zentangles some flair. Your whole spread does not have to be colored, use enough to suit your drawing. Use ideas from Zentangle.com or tanglepatterns.com as a starting point.
    DONT's: NO dark/scary, NO political, NO profanity . . .

    3. LOCATION: US, but will ship internationally

    4. I'm asking to trade 3-page spreads with a total of 9 other artists.

    5. No glued-in pages, please do your artwork directly on the pages. For line-work, you can use BLACK Prismacolor Fine Liner Markers, ZIG Millennium, or Sakura Micron. I do not want my book wrinkled so for colored portions, NO PAINT. Please use alcohol-based markers (Copic, Prismacolor Art Markers, Letraset Tria, Triart, Chartpak, Letraset Promarker) or colored pencils.

    Thanks!
    I always leave rep points, please leave me rep points if you recieve a piece of my art . . . thanks!

    4: #pages: 3 page spreads

    5: COMMENTS:No glue in pages. Be careful when using waterecolor, and please use appropriate mediums.

    1: THEME: Glam Rock

Does not have to be people but can be simple fun and festive of glam rock, and androgeny is very welcome.

    DON'TS:???not sure yet???

    (Unfortunately, I will be unable to do any moleskine trades until further notice. Please consider this ad "on hold." I'll try to remove this notice when things get straightend out. Thanks!)



    1: THEME: Colors of Music

    2: DO'S: Create a music themed spread in one of the colors of the rainbow. I'd like the book, when fully open to be a continuous spectrum, so I'll mark off where each color should go and each artist can pick where in the book/what available color they want to work on.

    DON'T: Work your color out of order - it's OK if there are blank spaces between you and the last artist.

    3: Location: Phoenix, AZ. Can only ship within the US right now. I'll update here if that changes.

    4: #pages: 3 page spread

    Question - is everyone decorating the covers/first few pages of their own journals, the way it's usually been done in the regular moleskine trades on this site? If so, can anyone recommend a good way to prep the cover for paint, etc?

    I am doing the sign in page and the first three pages...up in the air on whether I am decorating the cover...I may wait until the book is finished so I can coordinate colors..will see...with my last book I lightly sanded the cover before applying a coat of Liquitex high-gloss acrylic enamel...(Glossies)...I have not seen it since it began it's journey 6months ago so I'm not sure how it is holding up....

    It's when you do your work on other paper, sized to the moley, and then "tip" or glue it in. Or at least that is my understanding of it.
