Details of swap:

We will swap pages for each others' art journals. You can select the size paper you like, the orientation of the art and whether you prefer single sheets or a folded two-page spread. Each swapper will list 5 - 10 themes and their swap partners will create 2 two-page sheets or spreads for the partners. Since this is a big swap, I will limit new swappers to one partner and FOC's can choose up to 3 partners. You will also specify whether or not you want the binding-side margin left blank for easier binding. (I hope that makes sense!)

Here are some links to previous art page swaps:

So mini_mum suggested that I include in the questionnaire whether the receiver wants blank spaces for journaling. But, correct me if I am wrong, I thought the purpose of an art journal, or a shared art journal like this, is to collect other people's art and then you end up with a book about birds (one of my themes). Or poetry. Or song lyrics. Or -insert your theme here-.

Let me know what you think.

I agree, I am joining this because I look forward to receiving pages that are essentially smallish art pieces by different artisans on a theme that I like, and to doing the same for others. I personally would not be making any additions to the pages that I receive from others.

ok - maybe I putting to much emphasis on the 'journal' and not enough on the 'art' :p

First time doing anything like this, so just feeling my way!

When I first heard about 'art journals' I thought that they were just decorated/embellished daily journals. It took me a while to figure out what that referred to!
