    Talking Color Series Blue/4 x 4 Chunky Page Swap/Open Media/Due date: February 8th

    Due Date: February 8th
    Number of Pages: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
    Number of Participants: 30
    Open Medium

    COLOR SERIES: BLUE/4X4 CHUNKY PAGE/OPEN MEDIA/Due: February 8th


    The next color in our color series is Blue!!! I would prefer that each chunky page be different but if they are slightly similar that is okay.

    Chunkies should be 4 x 4 in size; securely made & sturdy. If I can bend or fold the chunky pages easily then they are too thin. Chunky pages that are received that are not sturdy/easily bent or folded will be returned to the artist at their expense. It is not fair to the other artists that follow the rules. Embellishments are encouraged but if used they must be securely fastened & able to go through a mail machine with no problems and you also need to add extra postage for shipping costs for adding the embellishments. Please leave a half inch clear on the left side for binding purposes. Encase your chunky pages in protective plastic. Please use stickers minimally & especially not as the focal point. Please decorate the back side as well (can be more simple) & put your info on the back (Real name/A4A name/the swap name/chunky title/where you are from/date).

    Beings that this is an open medium swap, it must be noted that all artists will be mailed what comes in regardless of what medium they use. A HD/HP artist may end up getting a collage CHUNKY & vice versa. A COLLAGE-MIXED MEDIAl artist may end up getting a HD/HP Chunky Page. If this issue is a big problem for you then you can private message me & I'll see what I can do but honestly, this should be fun not gloom & doom....

    Both US and international artists must pay for their own return postage; either well concealed cash (the amount that it took to mail your chunky pages to me)/US stamps/or you can private message me for my Pay Pal addy info. Estimated postage costs:

    US $2.74-$3.25 for three pages/$3.25-$4.60 for six pages
    Canada $9-$11/
    Everywhere else $11-$14 for three pages/$14 + for six pages

    I will refund any extra $$$ left over from shipping prices.

    Please mail chunky pages a week & half or two weeks before due date Host chunky pages are not mandatory but I would be tickled pink if I received one. Late chunky pages will be returned unswapped. No communication and no pages will result in Neutral ITrader. When you are ready to send please private message me for my addy info. After you have received your chunky pages; the names of the artists in the swap will be linked so that you can easily give out You Rock points & ITrader for me.

    If you have any questions, whatsoever, please feel free to ask. It is a good idea to go over the rules a couple of times so that you become comfortable in getting your swaps out appropriately. So let's make some fun!!

    Just want to get a clarification. I am hoping this excludes the blue-greens like turquoise,
    aqua, teals aquamarines etc, so we can do another and have a book of those great colors!

    Glad to have you all back in the swap.

    Well, I had not planned on doing turquoise or any of that family color group as it would mean that then we'd have to do Fuschia, Lilac, ; you know what I mean. I don't know how m any other artists would be interested in doing that. I guess we could take a poll about it but it gets to be a lot of time/work going into them...

    Oh no, I just did not want to get it wrong!! I was at Hobby lobby looking for blue papers and only found two papers that I would call true blue...Then went to their fabric section to look for ribbons and trim and again only found two items that I call true blue. The sales clerk told me they seldom ordered it because it did not sell anymore. So, pure blue must be a thing of the past, except for our beloved AFA site! So I suppose when we go through our supply stash and it looks blue-it must be blue and is OK for this swap!!

    Well, it is definitely okay to use different color shades in these Color Series swaps. That really surprises me about blue not being very popular down there. It is popular here because there are sooooo many Seattle Seahawk fans around=) Their colors are blue (dark navy), green (almost lime green) & white.

    Go Hawks! Go Sounders! Go Mariners! They all use blue & green in their uniforms so, yes, we have ready access to a whole range of blues. I had already planned to use variations of blue so I'm glad to know this is OK.
