Plan to get your journals sometime this week so you can start working on them. I'd like to have our 1st mail out date to be September 21st....that gives everyone 3 weeks to get a journal, pick a theme, and do a few spreads* before we start mailing them...
One thing you may want to create on the very 1st page of your journal is a sign in page, for everyone to sign in order that they do their art, so you know whose art is whose 50 years from now! ;) there are some great sign in pages as part of those moley exchanges...i don't know if anyone noticed them.. there a great one for a fairy tale themed book that the gal had drawn the princess and the pea, and everyone signed on a mattress....now of course i can't find it. ah, well...i'll find another one to give you an example...
i hope that link works.
* a spread, for anyone not familiar with the term, is the back of the left page and the front of the right page used for one work of art....so, if your book is laying open and flat, your drawing would cover the whole thing, not just the right side... does that make sense?
i need all your mailing addresses......put them in my inbox on FaceBook! ; )
have a great day! good luck picking a theme...i know i already have waayyyy too many floating around in my head! it's gonna be hard to chose! so, hopefully we can do a few more exchanges!
