    Skinny Book Swap: Mixed Media Day of the Dead- due October 10th

    Swap Due Date – October 10, 2008
    Signup/withdraw date – October 10, 2008
    Number of Cards –4/4 or 8/8
    Number of participants - Max 30
    Size of pages: 3" wide by 8" high

    In this swap we will make 4 or 8 pages celebrating Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos. We want some colorful, bright pages that can be bound in a book or made into a shrine as Adriayna shows in her Mixed media trees skinny book swap.



    Pages by Eraserqueen, Electablue, Lily Lemon, Goatgoddess

    Creating pages:
    * All players will send in 4 or 8 pages that are 3" wide x 8” high on sturdy paper, preferably mat board or illustration board, but no lighter than 140 lb. watercolor paper or two sheets of card stock glued together.
    *Please try to use a mix of media, such as: watercolor, acrylic, ink, rubber stamps, collage, brads, charms, fabric, metal, glitter, hand drawing etc and most importantly please make them colorful!
    * Please include your information on the back and make the backs of the pages interesting. Slap some paint on it or cover it with scrapbooking paper, etc.
    * All pages must be different and distinct. Originals only - no scanned copies or prints.
    *Leave 1/2 inch on the left side free of embellishments for binding. You will bind your own pages. Some people may want to make these into a shrine or bind them on the top, rather than the side, so try to keep this in mind.

    Shipping:

    All participants must pay their own shipping in this swap. In similar chunky book swaps in the past the shipping was:
    --USA: $2.50
    --Canada: $2.50
    --Europe: $4
    --Australia and New Zealand: $5

    Please enclose an address label and I will supply the bubble envelope, or reuse the one that you send in.

    You can do any of the following to cover your shipping:
    -US participants can send well-concealed cash, US stamps, or money via paypal.
    -International participants can also send well concealed U.S. cash, U.S. stamps or paypal.
    -Note:*If you are using paypal, please add $0.50 cents extra for the paypal charges.

    *Please include username and swap name on all envelopes sent in.

    * Please PM for my address when you are ready to send your cards.

    I will leave all I-trader ratings when I send out returns. I will send one reminder PM (two weeks out for international, one week for local). Late arrivals or no withdraw communication/no cards will receive neutral feedback.

    I think I have included all the important info, but if I left something out, just ask.

    Yeah! I am so glad you joined us Lily! Thank you for your compliments on my samples, and please don't be intimidated! I worked really hard on them and I meant them more to inspire people to do something really fun and different and not to scare people away. I am sure you will come up with something wonderful.
