Details of swap:
In this swap everyone will pick a favorite story, poem, myth, etc that they would like to have illustrated. The stories will be broken into sections and shared with your group. Each person in the group will craft one part from everyone’s story and will receive a different part of their story from each person. So everyone will end with an illustrated/decorated story with each page done by a different crafter.

You will be crafting one page per partner and can have 1, 3, or 5 partners:
~ First time swappers can sign up for 1
~ Other swappers can sign up for 1 or 3
~ FOC can sign up for 1, 3, or 5
 
For ideas/inspiration you can check out the round 1 gallery or craftster’s paper crafting board


Swap Rules:
~ Send your story to organizer on time (by end of signups) for approval
~ If your story is not approved you must be ready to pick another one quickly. If it is too long you can decide to only have part of it crafted (saving the rest for yourself or a future round of this swap)
~ Keep stories and art PG13, NO exceptions.
~ PM your partner and organizer when you send and receive. You must get a DC# for this swap, if you can’t get one due to size/weight then you must keep your receipt as proof of sending.
~ You will get feedback for this swap when all your pages have been sent & received, and when you post pictures of all the pages you receive in the gallery.

When it’s time to post pictures in the gallery please post your received story pages in chronological order so everyone can read it!


Page Requirements:
~ This is a craft swap, be creative! Each page needs to be illustrated in some way.
~ Put effort into your work; think about what you would like to receive. Each page should take you 15 minutes or more to craft.
~ For each page you craft you must include the text of your section (this can be done creatively or not, but should look nice. If you need to include it separate from the illustration you can print it on the same size paper with binding strip space and it does not need to be crafty, but you can add a border/little decoration anyway)
~ Do not alter the text of any section you are crafting unless you have approval from your partner (and let organizer know)
~ Include your artist information on a small card (think ATC size) for each page you create
~ Pages should only be crafted on one side (this is for binding reasons) if you want to craft on both sides ask your partner(s) if this will work for their book (or you could always craft an extra page if you want to spoil them Wink )

Be creative! Your pages can be done in a variety of ways; collages, comic book format, paint, 3-D popup, computer graphics, photographs, pictures done in cross stitch, etc

 


Page setup options, use this to describe how you want your pages to be and refer to this when you are crafting your partner(s) pages (you will only be decorating one side of the paper):
Traditional page – Longest sides of paper are the sides of the page, shortest sides are the top and bottom of the page
Sideways page – Longest sides of paper are the top and bottom of the page, shortest sides are the sides of the page
Folded page - Fold paper in half, fold will be between the short sides of the paper (this creates two “pages” on one side)
Binding strip – The amount of room on any given side that needs to be left blank for binding

Although this sounds amazing, I cannot see myself ever having the time to complete a project so large… I will be following the gallery though. Smiley

In the last round some people chose poetry/nursery rhymes (they are usually shorter than stories). So if you are concerned about size then you could consider something shorter and sign up for only one partner  Smiley and if not then you are always welcome to stalk the swap  Wink

I think I might be stalking. Unfortunately… I think I will have too many swaps around then. But I will think about it. Cheesy

Ooh, this sounds awesome. Sorry to be dense, but how many pages would we end up doing in total?

Number of partners (1 page/partner):
First time swappers can have 1, other swappers can have 1 or 3, and FOC can have 1, 3, or 5

I have that in the questionnaire, but for some reason it's not in the swap details... I think I will fix that now  Smiley
