RULES

<img:stuff/bookbul.gif> This exchange is only open to 10 people at a time.

<img:stuff/bookbul.gif> 10 people will place their names in a list.

<img:stuff/bookbul.gif> Each person will be given one of the 10 to create a bookmark for.

<img:stuff/bookbul.gif> The Bookmark Artists acknowledge that they need to be able to send the bookmark to their given person.

<img:stuff/bookbul.gif> Bookmarks can be created in any medium, but artists should keep in mind that the surface should be somewhat smooth and not be able to leave any marks on pages (for example, no chalk, glitter, crayon unless you can laminate it)

<img:stuff/bookbul.gif> The receivers can upload pictures of the bookmarks to the Bookmark Exchange Gallery

<img:stuff/bookbul.gif> If you find that you're unable to complete a bookmark in a timely manner, please let everyone know as soon as possible :)

<img:stuff/bookbul.gif> When placing your name, you can have 3 words that might describe and inspire a bookmark suited to you. (for example: Pink, Fish, Love)

<img:stuff/bookbul.gif> Once all 10 people have been assigned, it would be hoped that bookmarks would be sent within a month :)

2010-10-22 [pixish]: :D

I'm thinking that I'm going to do a mixed media kind of thing for my bookmark :D I have already drawn a kind of 'map' of what I'd *like* to do but I'm not sure if it will work the way I want to :p I'm so excited to start but part of it has to wait until next week so I can buy some bits and pieces for it :D

2010-10-22 [hanhepi]: that sounds really awesome! i'm trying something creative too, but my practice run last night failed miserably.

2010-10-23 [pixish]: aw :(
Are you going to try again? Or go in a completely different direction?

2010-10-24 [hanhepi]: i am steadfastly trying similar but different techniques. and i think i've got one that will work!

2010-10-25 [pixish]: woo! :3

2010-10-25 [Kaimee]: wow I think I must be boring, I was just going to draw digitally then print it out nicely ^^;

2010-10-25 [pixish]: Well, I actually did most of mine digitally :p I've finished that part today (Still undecided on whether I want to laminate it or not...) I just wanted to add some other things to it as well :3

2010-10-25 [hanhepi]: i would have done a digital print, then laminate, but my printer is DOA. my next idea was to hand draw, but i'm too shakey lately for that ("um, yes Flisk, i swear that squiggle is a dragon!") , so i'm working with fabric arts.

i thought melting crayon into the fabric was a promising idea (and a great way to use some dead crayons!), but after experimentation, i still cant get enough crayon OUT of the fabric so as not to be drawing in the book when you use it. lol. not the type of book mark i wanted at all. (but the marks were pretty!!)

2010-10-25 [Flisky]: Heehee. (I have to laugh, it's kind of amusing.)

I actually did mine digitally, too. But I photomanipulated some things to make a pretty bookmark. (And I really hope Nioniel likes it. She is a photographer and I thought she would appreciate it. ^_^ )

2010-10-25 [hanhepi]: i've been alternately laughing and cussing like a sailor through the whole process. lol. XD

2010-10-25 [nehirwen]: Sounds like an awesome process Han! :3

Mine's digital too, bit of painting and photomanipulating. :) I don't have laminating tools, so I'll let it printed as well.

2010-10-26 [pixish]: I'm going to put up an expression of interest for the next round up :)
I'm thinking that it won't be set in stone that you CAN'T participate twice in a row, but it would be polite to let people who haven't had a go in line first :)

2010-10-26 [Nioniel]: Flisky, I love it!

2010-10-26 [Flisky]: I was really hoping it wouldn't get too mutilated in the mail. ^_^

2010-10-26 [Kaimee]: Wow, it arrived already? :D Please put up an image in Bookmark Exchange Gallery so we can all see it? :)

2010-10-27 [Nioniel]: Sure! I'll do uploadz on Thursday. :P

2010-10-27 [pixish]: how exciting :3
I'm sending han's tomorrow :D Along with the letter and other things I owe her :3 I forgot to take a picture before I wrapped it though >_< I have the digital file but I added some other stuff

2010-10-27 [Lothuriel]: Almost have yours finished [SilverFire]!! I hope you like it! ^__^

2010-10-27 [hanhepi]: i can get a picture when it gets here, no problem.

i'm still laboring over mine. :/ had 2 made, but i've managed to lose one i worked on for hours. just *poof* can't find it. :( maybe the dog ate it. i could just check their poop and send it anyway... lol.

2010-10-27 [Flisky]: Can we not do that and just let the dog have it?

2010-10-27 [hanhepi]: you sure? it was a very cool bookmark. lol.
