Round 2 GALLERY:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=430997.new#new

Round One is finishing up but I couldn't wait to start Round 2! Take a peek at the gallery for Round One so you can see what we'll be doing. We will swap one fabric art journal page with one partner. (If there is an odd number of swappers, I may make a 3-person group. Swapper A will send to Swapper B who will send to Swapper C who will send to Swapper A.) If this goes well and we all enjoy the process, we'll meet back here in January and do it again!

You will craft a "page" - more like a quilt block - with unfinished sides and back and your partner will add it to his/her art journal or make a fabric book. Each swapper may choose the size they would like and the theme and their partners will have artistic license to interpret this theme as they wish. This could also be called a mixed-media fabric art journal page because you will add, incorporate and embellish with lots of goodies - fabric, buttons, ribbon, charms, sequins, paper and whatever else you can think of and/or already possess.

As in all swaps, communication is key for a happy swap. So chat with your partner, chat in the discussion thread and ask questions This is a new technique and medium for most of us so we're all newbies in this swap.

Aww come on, join in. No judgement here. Just good clean fun. We all learn as we go along. I was challenged recently to do 1 scary thing a day....don't quite have the fortitude for that, but maybe once a week? We will love what you do!

Sent in my questionnaire Grin. Can't wait to get more pages. I am going to work on some for me to get into practice.
And "Kookaloo_Starr" jump on in. Like "Smmarrt" said we are all pretty new to it and are experimenting too!
