Swap name: Coloring Page Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: rockingbearranch
Sign-up date range:  February 28, 2016 to March 13, 2016

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: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:

Has posted at least 15 times: YES/NO
Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES/NO

Details of swap:
This is intended to be an inexpensive swap for people of all skill levels. You will make two coloring pages. Solid black ink on plain white paper, one sided, 8 1/2 by 11 inch. If you need to trace, use at least four pieces of inspiration per page. Please spend time and care making a nice page to color.

Since the number of swappers will probably be under five, you will send copies to each participant. If we have more than five swappers, we will decide as a group how many we would like to send out. If you cannot scan and print copies, your local library, Fed Ex or Kinkos may be able to help you; or if you have them to me before March 29, I can process them with mine.

To Recap: Draw 2 pages. Scan and print 5 sets of copies. Mail a set to 5 people.

Try to cover your pages in something like plastic wrap, wax paper, or a plastic page protector if it may go through rain. Please try to use a full sized envelope so the pages can remain flat. I think it will be one stamp plus an additional 22 cents stamp for US senders. Metal or string clasps add to the cost. It may be cost prohibitive to mail international flat. I don't have experience with that pricing so those might need to be sent tri-folded in a regular business sized envelope.

You are not required to add tracking but you are required to resend if lost. If two swappers are tech savy they may agree to transfer the files online, rather than sending by snail mail.

Sending info in now - I make coloring pages for my students sometimes just using a ruler or many circular items.

And just an FYI, there is a coloring book museum in Japan. Some members of the museum visited my preschool a few years back.

Oh this would be such a fun swap!! But I don't think my drawing skills are quite good enough to make coloring pages.  Undecided

Welcome Smmarrt!

skatergirl1007, you can do it! One of these was described as 1970s wallpaper. Wall paper or interior design might be a good place for ideas.

Here are some examples:

I'm excited at the possibilities of doodles! I haven't sat down to draw in a long time, and really miss it. Hoping inspiration strikes! Smiley

I'd like to start brainstorming designs, so... since we still have two weeks until sign-ups close I am curious what people put down for themes they would be interested in.

I put down nature, animals, birds... etc.

I am curious what people put down for themes they would be interested in.

I don't remember everything I put down, but a few were similar to some ATC ideas I had:

Your favourite song
The cover of your autobiography
Animals doing things animals wouldn't normally do
Vintage wallpaper
Feast
Typography
Art deco
