View Full Version : Mixed Media Chunky Book Challenge (volume 3) - Due July 1, 2009

This is a mixed media challenge PAT chunky book. The basic way it works is this: each person picks (and posts to this thread) an image (preferably high resolution) that they would like incorporated into their chunky book page. You must own the copyright to the image or it must be copyright free. Each person in the swap then takes that image an makes a 4x4" chunky book page. This could include: altering it, making a transparency, etc. You MUST use the image itself in some way in the piece, preferably as part of the central focus. So in the end, each person will receive 6 pages in return with a single central image as the theme for all nine pages, represented in 6 different ways by 6 artists.

The attached image is from one of the previous Mixed Media Challenge swaps at MAW.

Swap details:
1) Once you sign up for this swap you cannot withdraw. PATs are for unique art, so everyone must commit.

2) Everyone, including international participants, must pay for their own postage. The postage costs will be as follows (based on my experiences hosting in the past): USA - $2.50; Canada $3; Everywhere else $4. You can send an IRC, money order, stamps, well concealed cash, or paypal.

3) Swap cards are due to me by July 1st, 2009. Please put your USER ID, FULL NAME, and WHO THE CARD IS FOR on the back at minimum. As these are chunky books, the backs should also be fun and pleasant to look at.

4) Once the swap is full, you have one week to find and post your picture to the thread.

How about one of your kids? Mine will probably be either a ziggy bird or a tree, lol!

OriginalYouth
04-16-2009, 04:32 PM
Yeah, a b/w photo of both would be cool...

Gingersnap
04-21-2009, 12:46 PM
I strongly think I can do this if everyone gets their images in early. Sign me up. Is there a date when the images have to be posted? That would be helpful as I am leaving May 23.

adriayna
04-21-2009, 12:52 PM
Judi, welcome! We are going to wait till we are full--if it takes a while, I can move the deadline back a bit to compensate. :)

Here's mine.

Use the first one that is a picture of Olivia, my shadow. Use the second photo for color as she is brown, not black. She has no black on her at all, but is a true sable with very sage green eyes.

i'm PRETTY sure this swap would be more balanced with 8 people. The universe tells me so. :P

katilady
04-28-2009, 09:14 PM
I could make 7 pages, if OY produces a hawt photo!

I'm fine with having 8 in the group. Does anyone object?

EraserQueen
04-29-2009, 01:45 PM
If you have 8 you'll all get an uneven number back.

katilady
04-29-2009, 01:49 PM
If you have 8 you'll all get an uneven number back.

But 7 is a lucky number! Or are you suggesting we have 9? :D

Shelli Makes
04-29-2009, 04:19 PM
I might be persuaded, if people are looking for even numbers. I've been trying to stay away, but...

Shelli Makes
04-29-2009, 04:21 PM
Oh, just noticed that if anyone extra should get in a 9th spot, that would be EQ who already claimed a spot. Forget I posted. (pouts)

EraserQueen
04-29-2009, 04:41 PM
Shel and OY, I could post another swap like this..Actually I WAS Hoping to do a gothic arch swap, becauase I really love that shape....But maybe I could do a gothic arch Choose an Image swap?

Shelli Makes
04-29-2009, 04:58 PM
Either works. I'm just lookin' to get my feet wet on the MMA side; books are my preferred thing lately (esp. in mixed media); and mid-summer is a great timeline for me.

OriginalYouth
04-29-2009, 08:18 PM
Dont' make an allowance for me, I'm fine.

EQ, just open another swap that's the same, with me and Shel and you as the first 3 and we'll fill it up! New MMA members are joining all the time, I'm sure they'll be along to play with us.

Pippin
