    Book Page Backgrounds 4 – Play It Again! Due Mar 15

    Swap Due Date: Cards need to be in my hands no later than Mar 15
    Signup/withdraw Date: No sign ups or withdraws ...just send in your cards on time if you want to play!
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3 only
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Medium: Any additional mediums are welcome so long as the whole background is an actual book page (text-not pictures, any language is welcome)


    Book Page Backgrounds 4 – Play It Again!



    Since all swaps/hosts have different guidelines and requests, I respectfully ask that you take a moment and read my guidelines for this swap. Thank you!

    The first three page background swaps were awesome! The cards were fantastic! You want to play again, don't you?!

    For this swap, make your background from a real book page (text-not pictures, any language is welcome). Be sure the whole card is covered with a book page. After that, the only limit is your imagination! Make sure you attach the book page to a sturdy backing card. Paint, collage, draw, ink, sew, whatever you like...just create on top of the book page.

    Please make sure part of the book page is visible as the background.

    This swap as a no sign up swap. Your name will be added to the list when your cards arrive.

    Cards that arrive on or before March 15 will be swapped out.
    Cards received after March 15 will be returned to the artist.

    Host requests:
    Please DO NOT send envelopes. (I will provide them)
    Please DO send loose postage, not envelopes with postage already attached.
    Please DO NOT use raised embellishments.
    Thank you!!


    Creative Plan:
    Please submit only your best, most creative work.
    Card size must be ATC standard - 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
    All cards need to be sent in a plastic sleeves or some sort of protection in case your envelope is damaged on the way to me.
    Originals only, no prints of previous work.
    Flat embellishments only. What I am trying to avoid are the raised embellishments, gemstone type stick-ons, pointed things that can tear an envelope, heavy or thick pieces. Other flat types are ok.
    Cards with raised embellishments may be returned. When in doubt, please ask!

    Feel free to post your cards to the thread, we'd love to see them!
    If you have questions about your cards, please send me a pm or ask in the thread.
    PM me when you are ready for my address.

    Awesome Returns:

    All players: Please do not send envelopes. I will provide them. Please do send a label/paper with your name and address clearly printed on it.

    US players: Please do send loose postage to cover your returns. An extra stamp is always appreciated to help cover international postage players, but it's not required. Please do NOT send envelopes with postage already attached.

    International players: I'll cover the postage for your returns.

    Gracious Gratitude:
    Please make sure your real name, swap title, and screen name are on the back of your cards so others can leave you rep points.

    Once you receive your return cards, please remember to leave iTrader for me and Rep points for the folks whose cards you were honored to receive. I will leave iTrader for each of you as soon as I receive your cards.

    Thank you so much for participating in my swap!

    Ack! So many good swaps right now... (I guess there are worse problems, though, right?)

    Lurking for now, but I'm sure I'll be back

    I'm taking a online workshop sponsored by Strathmore and I am wondering how much of those techniques I could use on a book page? Another direction in which to play today...

    Lurking for now, but I'm very, very tempted! I will probably succumb, though, knowing me. I love my book pages!!

    I'll probably end up sending some in for this!
