    #17 The Stupendous Scibblers Moley Group (FULL) - First mail date July 1, 2012

    First Mail Date: July 1, 2012
    Due Home: March 2013
    Withdraw By: Not allowed after May 15
    THIS GROUP IS FULL

    Welcome group! This will be an 8-player, open medium swap. Everyone will be using a Japanese Album Pocket Moleskine (the kind that unfolds into one long page). They can be purchased here and here. They're typically 30 pages long, so each player will complete a 3 page spread in every book.

    Group Members Agree to:
    • Be willing and able to participate for the length of the group and keep to the timeline. There are no withdraws allowed once the circle starts.
    • Be willing and able to complete three (3) 3x5 journal pages in the themes chosen by your fellow participants
    • Have the resources necessary to ship eight (8) journals internationally using First Class mail with mandatory tracking. Books should be wrapped in a plastic zip bag and sent in a padded/bubble envelope or flat rate box for protection.
    • Communicate each time you mail and receive a book, communication is a must so the group knows were all books are at all times.
    • Do your best work for all journals
    • Be respectful of all books and art, taking appropriate precautions to keep pages tidy and protected (including “fixing” media to prevent smudging, not spilling paste or paint onto other pages, allowing adequate drying time, and using wax paper between pages)
    • Provide real name, address, email and phone number to host for travel plan and in case there are any problems. Everyone is investing time and effort into these books and we want them all to return home safely and on time.


    All members are:
    • Active AFA trading members (defined as: positive iTrader across 2 swaps in the last 3 months)
    • Have 3+ months in good standing (no neutrals or negative iTraders)
    • With iTrader ratings of 25+


    Book Owner Responsibilities
    Choose and explain your theme. Decide on the theme, color scheme, media allowed, and any special requests (i.e. no tip in pages or no vertical entries). This is your book so you lay down the rules! You may choose to have an open theme book if you please. Use the first 3-4 pages of the book to describe your theme, list the travel plan, and establish your theme. You may also decorate the cover if you wish.

    stupendous
    alluring
    Add to the list so we can have a name that kicks ass!

    My theme is Personal Geography. This is about YOUR geography, which can be anything from a single aspect of your life to the entire event up to now. Maybe it's your house or your neighborhood, or your day or month, maybe it's the joy and sorrow you've felt along the way. Make it happy, make it sad, make it colourful or black and white, but make it YOURS. Mixed media's fine, I don't mind tip-ins (sometimes they are the ONLY way to make a spread work out, and I use them regularly), you can add flip up/down pages, windows, doors, sleeves, whatever blows your dress up. If I shift my thinking about any of this or come up with more helpful information, I'll edit this post so you'll have all the salient data in one place.

    Very interesting, I can't wait to see the pages that come from this!

    Yup! Sometimes people paint/whatever on watercolor or other paper and then glue it on top of their assigned pages.

    I have my notebook and my theme! YOUR version of Edward Gorey!
    I have been collecting for over 25 years so I have many books and other things of his. A moley is just the logical next step.
    References:http://www.edwardgoreyhouse.org/ and http://www.goreyography.com/
    many more on the interwebs!
    Black,white, sepia, gray tones all his signature colors BUT if color is your thing - PLEASE USE IT! No restrictions - just go for it!!! Ask questions, i ain't going anywhere!

    I am so excited for this. I've been wanting to moley for quite a while.

    I am mulling over possible themes but will post soon.

    I just want to be very clear, since this is my first moley swap. First we buy our books and do the first 3-4 pages with theme and mailing order and possibly cover. Kristenzed gives us the mailing order and we ship off as directed. In each journal we do a page in the requested theme and mail off to the next in time. Repeat until the circle is complete.

    Is that right? Have I understood properly?
