    Journaling Tags - Open Media Swap - Due May 19

    Swap Due Date: May 19
    Signup/Withdraw Date: May 1
    Number of Tags: 2 for 2
    Number of Participants: 30
    Media: Open

    Journaling Tag Swap

    Lots of people use tags in their art journals. Tags can be a great way to hide writing in your art journal by writing on the back of the tag or by hiding them in pockets.

    For this swap, you need to make tags that have space for journaling on them. You might leave space for journaling on the front of the card or on the back, so that it is hidden.

    Apart from needing a journal space, this is an open theme swap. Whatever inspires you, whatever you might usually depict in your art journal, feel free to have fun with these tags. But please keep in mind that other people will be receiving your tags. Try not to depict anything that could be offensive or upsetting for people.


    Rules
    - All tags should be no smaller than #5 (4 3/4” x 2 3/8”) and no larger than #8 (6 1/4” x 3 1/4”).
    - All tags should be protected individually with sleeves, plastic wrap or paper.
    - Tags must be sent at least two weeks before the due date. I am in Australia, so this is how long it will take for international (and sometimes Australian) mail to arrive. Late tags will be returned at your expense.
    - If you need to withdraw, that is completely fine, just let me know. Because it is a limited participant swap, there may be other people who want to take your place.
    - No tags and no communication may result in neutral iTrader.
    - Keep tags as flat as possible to protect them.

    Postage (Australian)

    Please include a SASE or a large address label and stamps to the value your cards took to mail to me.

    Postage (International)

    Please include a large address label and $2 US cash. I can also accept PayPal or US stamps. I will provide envelopes.

    Other Info

    Please message me for my address when you are ready to mail and post to the thread when you send your cards. If you already have my address, it has not changed.

    When you receive your returns, please leave iTrader for me and rep points for the artists. I will leave iTrader as I receive your cards.

    Here are some tags that I made in case you wanted an example. They have journal spots on the front and I will put my details on the back. I will probably also put another journal spot on the back of each one, so that there is more space to write and to make the backs look tidy.

    There's more details about how I made these tags in my gallery.

    So who wants to play?

    Welcome, adventurer!

    Still plenty of time for other people to sign up. These were a lot of fun to make and not particularly difficult. I had pre-made tags, but it would be quite easy to cut your own. They could be used for lots of different things too. I'm hoping to use mine in my new planner (when it finally arrives from preorder), but you could use them as bookmarks.

    Anyone else want to play?

    I've ordered some blank tags, so I'm hoping to be able to show some more examples soon.

    Welcome, IrendiSunshine!

    I've been playing with a few tags just for my art journal, so I'll try and get some pictures up later today. Still waiting for new tags to arrive =).
