    G-19 The Happy Crafters Journal Group - Full

    Due Date: 2 pages per month for 5 months in a row starting January 2014
    Withdraw: not done since this is a long term commitment
    Why: it's fun, it's rewarding and you'll receive great art from motivated players
    Number of players: 6
    Medium: Hand drawn/hand painted

    Pens, Paper, Paints, Hand drawn CJ Group


    The last circle journal group (G-18) I hosted is just finished. I had people who missed the sign up so I'd love to give it another try?

    This group is for hand drawn art, paper, paints, pens, oil pastels, and pencils of your choice. It is not for stickers, rubber stamping, embelishments, digital or photography.

    We will be doing two pages that face each other as in an open book. These pages are often one continuous picture. Size is normally 6x6 or 8x8, but can vary some as long as it is not larger than 8x8 or smaller that 4x4. Please add your artist info on the back of your page.

    What is a Circle Journal? Read the sticky threads on top of this (sub)-Forum. And for those new to Journals, by all means - look in my gallery for examples - there are a few from the old days and recent swaps

    To join this group one needs +15 iTrader

    As a participant you are required to:
    - check in with your Journal Group at least once a week
    - report to group when you will be away from net or out of town and where you
    stand on spreads at that time (VERY Important)
    - report when pages are mailed
    - report when you receive a spread and from whom
    - notify the group and your partner if you cannot mail on time
    - notify your next trading partner, if you fall behind, not to create or mail a page for
    you until you are caught up.
    - !!! Be prepare for postage costs of mailing large envelopes for 5 months in a row
    and possibly around the world (which makes collecting spreads for a journal even
    more fun)

    Note: If you do not post to your group thread or to a Group Host for more than two (2) weeks, the Group Host may report you to the Moderators and your membership in the Circle Journals will go on suspension. Your name will be taken off the rotation and pages will not be sent to you. NO EXCEPTIONS. We expect active participation in all the groups.

    !!! I plan to follow these rules. Communication is EXTREMELY important with long term swaps like these

    * You will be notified to PM your Journal Group Host with your FULL contact information (Name, mailing address, email address, and (all) telephone numbers).

    * A Start Date is selected either by your Journal Group Host or there may be discussion in your group.

    * Delivery Confirmation Numbers (for USA) on packages are no longer mandatory for page spreads, but if you do use them, post the # in the group thread.

    Any Questions?

    Who wants to play with me for the next 5 (or 6) months?
    What is your page size and theme?

    After sign up I will pm you for full information.

    Signed up are:
    A) Nicky - 8x8 - Beyond the sea (seaturtles, seahorses, coral reefs, tropical fish... you name it)
    B) Mariloupatch - 8x8 - Nature sea and shore, no humans please.
    C) lilbad - 8x8 - Ireland/sheep/lavender.
    D) chatty - 8x8 - Abstract (see #31 for link)
    E) Thorn - 8x8 - Gothic Horror (see #12 and #18 for examples)
    F) Muddmagic - 8x8 - Dark art

    Captivatedlife, what a dilemma - how about a yes or no?
    Just stop being practical for once and jump in dear... it's "only" 2 pages per month and working on a larger scale (8x8") is soo much fun. And the pages you will receive in return will make it all worth your while.
    Let me know a.s.a.p because there are only 2 spots left and last time they filled up in 2 days. Hope you reconsider.

    Mine will be 8x8 theme: Gothic Horror.

    Huge old houses, ghosts, lonely moors, etc. (A couple popular examples: Hound of the Baskervilles or The Others). As opposed to modern horror which seems to be a splatter and gore...

    Marilou - it's not gothic as in skinny pale kids in black eyeliner, though.

    This page has a nice list of classic gothic horror at the end to give you an idea of the genre. Even Wuthering Heights counts (or so they say there. I'm not going to argue, even if the only monsters in it are human, since I certainly wouldn't mind pages inspired by one of my favorite books.)

    Welcome Muddmagic... questions are allowed dear... in this swap we only mail 2 pages to eachother, that we can stick in an album or so (I've got a special album that holds 8x8 pages).

    And this means that we are full... I will PM our moderator to have the thread sealed for sign-ups and to give her our permanent name. How about the Happy crafters?

    And we even have our own stalker.... You're more than welcome to watch captivatedlife!

    Mudd...I'm worried about your theme. Not sure I can pull off 'horror'.
