New Altered Book Swap for 2013!!!

I'm thrilled to announce the start of a new Swap!!!  Open to any interested artist within the United States.  Details are below.  Feel free to email me for more details.  ***Payments are accepted through Paypal***

When: July 2013-January 2014

Theme: “Vintage Voices” (all pages to be inspired by the past)

Cost: $25 swap fee includes book, cost to ship out swap packets, and mixed media goodies from me!

Deadline to Join in:
May 31st, 2013

Contact:  Chelsey at

Use PayPal button on right side of the screen to pay.  If I know you personally or have participated in a swap before, I will accept personal checks.   

More details:  By the end of June you will receive from me a packet containing your swap book (a blank 6-page board book--sizes will vary) an instruction booklet with swap details,  and some mixed media goodies from my personal collection of ephemera/collage materials.  

When you receive your book, you will work on your front and back covers.  
At the end of July, you'll send your book with its completed covers to the next swapper.  They will choose any inside spread (a left and right page) to complete.  By the last day of each month you must send your book along to the next swapper.   At the end of December/early January, all books will be sent back to their original owners.  You will now have a completed book with the work of 5 other artists in it, in addition to your own work. 

"Vintage Voices" is the theme of this swap so all pages should be inspired by the past.  That could mean the very, very distant past (Ancient Egypt, Stonehenge, Medieval times, etc...) or the not-so-distant past (the mod 60's, roaring 20's, etc...)  It's completely up to you and your muse!
