Date to send item by: send outs expected to be for Lammas with an assigned send out date of no later than July 25th! which is kind of a short crafting period!

link to no longer currently nekkid gallery is here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=311041.0

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): NO

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO

Age requirement? must be 13 as Craftster requires, must have positive swap feedback and/or parental consent to participate in a swap if individual is under 16

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: IS NOT

Details of swap:

This round we are doing 4x4 inch (10x10 cm) Chunky Pages - WWP style! So that means making chunky pages for three partners in a group (declare on your entry in the right location how many groups you want to be in) - that are pagan, wiccan, or witchcraft related or specific to Lammas or to a theme that is something your partner will enjoy!

We will NOT be doing a card swap in addition to the Chunky Pages.


If you just love chunky pages and aren't witch/wiccan/pagan etc, that is great - everyone is welcome as long as we all play nice together  Grin
think Halloween coming early if that helps  Wink


Here are some links to previous chunky page swaps if you need an idea of how this works - there is a great explanation of what a chunky page is and what the binding requirements at the start of the round 3 Discussion Thread and examples in the Gallerys:

Be creative!

Please consider your partner's interests and requests when crafting, and feel free to contact your organizer with questions or worries! If you have any doubts about your partners interests, please ask them to clarify to make sure they will be receiving something they can use and enjoy.

This round we will be crafting one 4x4 inch (10x10 cm) Chunky Page for each of our partners. Spoilage is not expected but if you and someone in your group decide to do a little extra as a personal swap, pictures will be more than welcome in the gallery!  

Communication is vital to a positive swap experience!  

PLEASE PUT WWP SWAP 13 IN ALL PM SUBJECTS

Please post at least once a week in the thread so everyone knows that we are all still working steadily towards completion of our projects. I will be keeping track on my spreadsheets - simply post a note in the thread to let us know you are still working and progressing towards completion of your items!

Feedback will reflect communications with organizers and on the thread so remember this as an important aspect of this swap!

Lack of communication without cause can result in your removal from this swap and/or negative feedback.
 

If you want to participate, send this questionnaire to RondaS. On this and all subsequent communication with organizers, please put WWP Swap 13 in the subject line:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Witch/Wicca/Pagan Swap Round 13, Chunky Pages WWP style!
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country written as it needs to go on the label:

For this round you are required to ship internationally, but make a note if you would prefer not to have more than one international partner in your group. The Chunky Pages should fit in a small bubble wrap envelope so postage should not be too much.  

Confirm that are at least 13 years old (yes/no)

Do you have any allergies or aversions?

Do you have any allergens in your home?

now for the good stuff!

What kind of binding do you want for the pages you will receive? (see Chunky Page 3 Discussion Thread for info on that)

How many groups (4 people to a group) would you like to be in (please remember that you will be obligated to complete 3 chunky pages for each group you are in by the deadline, so there is a limit of 3 groups)?

Do you have a specific theme you want all of your chunky pages to follow?

Do you want your partners to co-ordinate so all your pages have a consistent theme?

If you just love chunky pages and aren't witch/wiccan/pagan etc tell us here:  

What is your philosophy/religion/branch/etc.?

What deity/deities/etc. is/are special to you?

Are you out of the broom closet? (Do your friends and/or family know you are pagan?)

How long have you been practicing?

Are you a single practitioner, or in a coven?

Are you ok with tasteful nudity?

Do you have favorite colors, stones, etc?

Is there anything you do NOT want?

Anything else you want to add?

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

Groups will be posted both here and in the gallery on July 1st if possible but more likely July 2nd.

DCNs and other proof of mailing will not be required this round.  However, if any of your partners do not receive your page, you must remake one and send it again. Please make sure you send all PMs for sending and receiving to partners and to RondaS. Please tell partners if you can not take photos!!! All participants will be required to ship internationally (see above note).

thank you all for your interest and I am looking forward to organizing and to seeing all the crafty goodness in the gallery!

Ronda
Blessed Be!

Ephemera Sites

http://www.flickr.com/groups/creativegifts/pool/ - large pool of ephemera images on Flickr. And you don't need to join to see them!

http://bibliodyssey.blogspot.com/ - scans of old book illustrations. There is some great stuff in here if you dig a little.

http://www.flickr.com/groups/vintagehalloween/pool/ - Vintage Halloween Group. Lots of vintage postcards, pinups and decorations

http://www.art-e-zine.co.uk/vintageresources.html - a large collection of vintage ephemera from photos to labels. Navigation is kind of a pain, but worth it.

Inspiration outside of Craftster

http://atclindab.blogspot.com/ - blog with beautiful examples of various types of chunky art

http://www.flickr.com/groups/tipinart/pool/ - Chunky and not so chunky tip in pages

http://www.flickr.com/groups/chunky_book_arts/ - Chunky page group on Flickr


Tips and techniques:


- To age paper dab with a wet tea bag. For a darker aging, paint or spread wet coffee grinds on the page. Wrinkly the page gently also helps give it an aged look.

- Glue is up to you, however, make sure with paper bits to glue all the way to the edges, so your bits don't lift or fall off! Cheesy I use a glue stick for papers and Tacky Glue (or equivalent) for chunky bits. You can use hot glue to, but I hate dealing with those little strings that you always have to deal with.

hey - what about me, LOL!

actually
- entries are trickling in a little at a time -
I think I sprang it on everyone with out enough warning, LOL!

DanniQuee is our official Co-Organizer!
and my chunky page guru!


so any technical questions
that can't be found in the chunky pages links
please post on the thread
so we can all see the answers that Danni shares with us!
Cause I probably need to know the answers too, LOL!

by the way -
Edel signed up before I posted the thread,
because she went on a vacation
but didn't want to miss out, LOL!
That is dedication!

Ronda
Blessings!

While Ronda and glue sounds like mortal enemies, I get along with it just fine. Tongue

I'm totally new to this whole co-organiser job, so be gentle! Ask as many questions as you want and I'll try to answer them.

Hope everyone had an excellent Litha! I'm not going to lie, I cut out 4"x4" squares of cardstock in between my amulet making, herb sorting and family visiting yesterday.  Roll Eyes Paper crafting is a sickness, just ask Edel when she gets back!

I'm going to have to skip the chunky page swap ... heading out on vacation for two weeks.  My paper craft supplies aren't very portable -  Tongue   But of course, I have the page bookmarked so I can still follow the conversation!  Can't wait to see what you guys come up with - I think chunky pages are so creative!!
