Altered book round robbins
November 4, 2006
I’ve been looking at beautiful fat books and altered books and decos for a long time. I think it’s a wonderful idea to have a book circulated around many crafters, and receive a beautiful, interesting, varied and international piece of art.
So I finally decided to set up a round robin myself. The idea is for each participant to create their own book/journal, start a theme, design the cover, and send it away to the next crafter who will continue the theme with their own spread/page, and send it on. When the book is complete, it will be returned to its original owner.
It would be my first time participating in such a swap, and I’m really hoping people join. I decided to be strict about who can join, because of some sad experience with bad swappers, and I’ve also made up a rule which will hopefully eliminate the number of unsent items – that is, that even if you’ve signed up, you don’t have to complete a page. If you received a book/theme you don’t want to participate in, or can’t, you can send it on, without doing anything in it.
My blogger buddies – please see this as a personal invitation – I would love for you to join! First timers are also welcome, after all, I am one too! 🙂
