MANILA ENVELOPE ART JOURNAL SWAP
1 for 1 Journal Partner Swap
Mail out by October 1st. Mail directly to your partner.
Hosted by: Cathy Calamas
You will be creating a 10 page art journal out of a manila envelope, that you will be swapping with a randomly drawn partner. You will be embellishing the covers with paint, stencils, sprays, stamps, hand drawn art, etc.
Once partners are announced, you will contact that person, by email, to get their likes and dislikes and design your art journal for them accordingly. Will not be theme specific but more in line with color & style preferences. Cathy will randomly pick partners and post a list on the group site as well as email participants. You must have your address in the member database to participate. A tutorial will be posted on the PT blog with the basic construction how-tos here: http://papertraders-art.blogspot.com/2013/08/make-manila-envelope-art-journal.html
Mail directly to your partner. Partner list will be announced on Sept. 3rd . Open to Int’l members. Please let Cathy know if you prefer not to mail internationally.**
**Important Int’l Mailing requirements: Cathy took a finished journal to the Post Office, packed in another manila envelope to weigh it and estimate the costs to mail overseas. It will run you $6.00 -$7.00 to mail out of the US. If you use bulky embellishments, it will cost you considerably more to mail because you will not get the paper rate. Please take this into account before you sign up and when you design your journal.
