    ~ Creepy Halloween Fantasy Pages 8x8 Swap ~ Due Nov 5th

    Swap due date: Nov 5, 2013
    Sign up by/ Withdraw by date: (Internationals should be mailed Oct 23)
    Number of items: 2 pages for 2 pages
    Size of pages: 8" x 8" two different scenes
    Number of players: ?
    Media: Hand Drawn, Painted, Collaged, Stamped, (Flat, No Embellishments, No Fabric, No Photograpy) If digital it must be original drawings and both pages different.

    Creepy Halloween 8x8 Fantasy Pages



    Nightmare pumpkins, vampire castles, witches and dark faeries, werewolves, wizards and skulls, zombies, demons... This is Fantasy.... black cats and bats are good accessories but not the focal points. Children in costumes and sheet ghosts are not good at all. We are trying for mature Halloween, not little kids Halloween. Lets go somewhere between too cute and extreme gore.

    To show off journal page art most people purchase an 8x8 Scrapbook with clear pockets to slide the pages into. PLEASE do not sandwich a cardboard layer in your page as you would in a Chunky 4x4 page. No corrugated cardboard in page or envelope.

    A few simple rules:
    • Use your best effort, trim the white background away from collage image or stickers. (If used, stickers should be used as accessory not primary focus)
    Keep your pages flat (NO embellishments)
    • Make sure they’re cut accurately and in the correct size: 8” x 8”
    • Place in a plastic pocket page, bag or wrap in wax paper for protection
    • Make sure pages are dry (paint, sealers, etc.) before you place them in plastic
    • DO NOT FOLD OR BEND PAGES
    Feel free to sign and date the front of your pages if you wish.

    On the back of both pages should be the following info (at a minimum):
    * title if you have one for the page
    * Your username and realname
    * Your geographic location
    * the date
    * These should be approximately the stiffness(thickness) of a playing card. If using thin paper, back it with with a another layer. If using heavy art papers backing is optional.


    (optional) It might help in trading out the pages if you let me know if you are against receiving some themes.


    Mailing: DO NOT BEND OR FOLD average postage cost $2.07 usa and $9.45 international
    • Mail all pages in an envelope large enough to hold 8x8 pages without folding them.
    • if using a paper envelope cut a piece from a cereal box to stiffen the envelope and protect them, or you can use a photo type mailer envelope. NOTE These are not to have embellishments so there is no need for bubble mailers. They cost more money to post.
    Please label the back of your envelope; with your username
    US participants: Please include postage ( stamps or $ no coins) equal to the mailing cost of sending it.
    All participants: A Clearly Printed, large Address label or paper (I have packing tape).
    I will reuse your envelopes if possible, and it needs to be able cover the old address. Do not send extra envelope, If not reusable I have envelopes to replace it.
    International participants: If you have; some postage or dollars great…. but know that if you are without any of that, play anyway. I’ll have you covered. Just be sure to include a label with your mailing address.
    I will reuse your envelopes if possible, and it needs to be able cover the old address. Do not send extra envelope, If not reusable I have envelopes to replace it.
    When your cards are finished, PM me for my addy.
    A Hostess page in the theme is not required but I'd love to add your art to my book. I have not been doing much collage lately so I really do not need paper bits and such, thanks anyway, but no thank you.

    LOL Lots of lurking, what can I do to pull you all in? Have you looked at my 8x8 fantasy swap? There are some awesome pages there. Is it my swap title? It doesn't have to be creepy, was just trying to spice up the name. And I am also trying to get into a more mature Halloween and not the little kids Halloween.

    Thanks for the invite, Linda! Lots of lurking here... maybe some people are intimidated by the larger size?

    Over-commitment? What's that?

    I'm in.

    I'm not feard of the bigger size, overcommitment is mine... I need to finish up a few swaps before I say I can do this. Yes, I looked at the fantasy pages - HUGE envy, I really wanted to join it too... but couldn't seem to find the time.

    HooRAY!!! Peoples at my party after all!!!! LOL Welcome Thorn and muddmagic.

    Tribble I'll be waiting your return.

    Squ1rrel glad you are tempted. Some people do awesome digital collage but note that for this I am asking for your own original digital drawings if you do digital.

    muddmagic I try very hard to do returns that will please everyone. Things I take into consideration are quality, comments made, and themes. It is impossible to please everyone in every way, even harder in a really small swap, but I want everyone happy.

    Ok, count me in! I was worried about over-commitment as I keep agreeing to everything and it sort of takes the fun out of trading for me as I get stressed. I'm good for this, though! I can do iiiiiiit!

    LOL Welcome! I hope you don't stress to much. But I know what you mean my hubby teases me that I work to hard and I should tell my boss to lay off. LOL I don't work, he is refering to all my art commitments.
