I feel the need ... the need for ... PAINT! (I know -- it doesn't rhyme.) Who else needs to have a Paint-athon with me? I'm thinking the last weekend of September ... 9/27-30...

Who's with me??:jiggy:

What are the rules? Water color inside rubber stamping? Tim Holtz distress techniques? Gelatos?

Just use paints in their infinite varieties and techniques...it's all about painting :spinny:

I should have a craft room by then :jiggy::jiggy:
So, 'painting' with my Distress Ink markers (add water and they become water colour paints) is allowed? Also the 'smudging' of Distress Ink backgrounds counts?

I love me an ATHON!!

Donna, you got moved!!! How is everything?

Sure, use the Distess Inks; if it's paint it counts!

The move went well (except for the lack of a craft room :confused::biglaugh:) but I am yet to find anywhere that sells craft items - I can't even find needles and thread to fix the hem of my husband's pants. :err::sad:

Like I said...painting -- in all the many varieties available...

If someone would like to co-host, that would be fabulous, too.

Actually, any size mail art that you'd like to paint -- any medium as long as it's in the "paint" category. I so glad you will be able to participate...

The subject matter will also be up to you. There will be "daily themes" if that helps clarify your imagination, but those are in no way mandatory to participate.

Everybody, just a teaser on the daily themes...keep the upcoming seasons and holidays in the back of your minds to give you some ideas...

That would be a wonderful "excuse" (as if I needed one **LOL**) to get out my watercolors again:)

I know we are a ways away from the marathon but I needed to work on some cards for a swap. On the left is a sample background I made using distress inks and paints and on the right is the finished card.

Getting excited for the marathon!

Thank you for the invite Iv2paint, on that weekend I will not be near my craft room. I have never done a paint-athon and don't know how it works, would have loved to learn about it. Good luck with the athon and have fun.

Sorry about that! But be sure you come back...

I personally don't use inks, except from drawing Zentangle, so perhaps some of the other great artists can weigh in on this one...

I use Micron pens for zentangles and any inking I do on watercolor--they go pretty fine (005), AND they're waterproof, AND they come in colors,too
