21  Re: 2013 Art Journal-along in Craftalongs by LeapFeetFirst on: January 15, 2013 08:21:36 AM
I've decided to start art journaling- mostly because I received an awesome handmade book from sheepBlue and I want to fill it with art. I am also excited to see everyone else's pages and talk art all year round!

I am going to be using the website teag mentioned-  A Year in the Life of a Journal  http://oneyearartjournal.blogspot.com/ as a basis for my journal. Since I am new to this, I thought it would be good to have a little guidance :-). The first promt comes out today!

LeapFeetFirst's - "A Year of Art" Journal

Here is a picture of the awesome book that sheepBlue made for me!

Details of swap:

The 4x6 Art swap runs like this:  You make ONE piece of art, in your style,  in any medium, how you want.  The only parameters are that you keep it relatively flat, and 4 inches by 6 inches big.   You will have no idea who your partner is, until "Address Time", which will be at the end of the crafting period.  And then you will only know their Address and proper name.  The organizers will do their best to match up partners but do remember that this is essentially a "surprise" swap and no information other than a real name and address will be sent out to you.

Round One Gallery
Round Two Gallery
Round Three Gallery
Round Four Gallery

Here is the time line broken down:
~ Sign ups: December 29th - January 11th
~ Check-in via private message (pm) to your group leader January 12-15(by 6:00pm)
~ Addresses will be distributed on January 16th
~ You must ship by Tuesday, January 22nd

Swap Rules:
~ Please post in the thread after signing up so we know you are still crafting and thinking about this swap.  Updates and reminders will only be posted in the thread so keep an eye out for the Organizer note headline.

~ You are required to check in to your group leader via pm (private message) between the dates of January 12-15 ONLY.  Anyone who has not checked by 6:00PM on January 15th will be dropped from the swap and will not receive an address to send to.
~ DC# confirmation is required for all senders in the USA.  Add some packing to a bubble envelope to meet the 3/4" thick requirement when shipping.  If you are sending art on a piece of paper, please ship with a piece of heavy cardboard so your masterpiece arrives intact!

~ No extra's please!  Since the only communication will be through this thread, and there will be no discussion among partners, we don't want anyone feeling upset they didn't send an extra. This includes sending more than one art piece. Only send ONE art piece to your partner.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer(s): LeapFeetFirst

Congrats on the job offer Angelicus!!

I've finally found some time to play with my art supplies! I've added a couple of mixed media art pieces to my shop.

If anyone wants me to make them a custom art piece, I am more than willing!!
