Hi guys,
I'm new to art journal-ing and I must say that the past month or so that I've been doing it only seems to be getting better and better. I've watched videos online for any new techniques that I would want to try and I saw that someone had traded cards with different people and had put them into her sketchbook. I've heard of some conventions or gatherings where you do this and seeing as there would be no way for me to travel I was wondering if anyone might be interested in trading through postal? Seems old fashioned I know but I've been wanting an art pen pal forever now and this seems like a good excuse. let me know if you're interested or if you guys have any good advice on how I can find someone to trade with. Thanks!

Welcome to the art journal forum breandroid. Glad you are enjoying journaling in all it's forms. Sounds like what you are talking about are called ATC or artist trading cards. There is actually a forum dedicated to that here (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=339). I believe they do group exchanges now and again.

Also this thread (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1189312) within that forum has some good information about trading.

As to the journaling itself, we'd love to see what you are doing in your journal. Just start a thread.
