Hello my dears,

Book arts are one of my latest obsessions (books + art + craft, what's not to love?) and I was wondering if anyone was interested in doing a book arts swap.  It might encompass traditional book arts, like bookbinding, artists' journals, paper making, as well as art works and crafted pieces like 3D/sculpted, paper cutting, etc.  

Your thoughts?  Suggestions?

I'd be up for this. I'm feeling swap withdrawal after finishing my I Love Cats and Dogs swap. I love papercrafts. Papermaking, making stationary, rubber stamping, cutting paper... I am totally in love with Mod Podge, a new discovery for me. Let's get it going!

That's what I love about book arts - so many different skills/crafts/art forms are represented.  It seems to cross all 'genres'.     

And oh my goodness, I know what you mean about modge podge.  I've hesitated for ages (way expensive here in Oz), but I caved a month ago... wow.  That stuff rocks.

If anyone is interested, or has suggestions for a book arts swap, please join the discussion!

i have seen so many cool things made from or with books. I think it's wonderful idea, but I wouldn't know where to start coming up with an idea to make those lovely things  Embarrassed

There is an excellent book arts tumblr... '(naughty word) yeah, book arts!'  The title might be offputting (that naughty word is an f bomb) but the content is always amazing.  I won't share the link here because of the swearing, but you can google it.
