Welcome to our circle journal group. I hope that you will all be very happy living here for the next 5 months (or so)!!
Just to re-hash old information, we all need to post here weekly to let everyone know that we have't forgotten our circle pledge :
"I promise faithfully to create pages of the chosen theme of my monthly partner, to the best of my artistic ability. I promise to post those created pages to my allocated partner by the correct date as stated in the swop information. I promise that I will keep everybody informed as to my progress, and should I have any problems that may result in late posting I will make sure that I send a message to my partner and the swop momma."
Please remember that this pledge has to be recited whilst holding a paintbrush, a pencil and a pot of glue!!

Lily Lemon - theme of "Girl Power"-- depictions of, quotes about, artists' personal definition of girl power and/or artist's journal entry on when she realized her girl power/ any other thoughts artist has on girl power, etc.Size 8 x 8 . I, too, would love to see "handmade" elements in the pages! I think I will collect them in a scrapbook/photo album for now and decide later whether to bind them. So, backs should probably be neat and tidy with artist info. As far as chunkiness : whatever you want to do is fine with me!
goodmorningstarshine - pages to be 8 by 8, and for the theme to be fantasy. Not to be too dorky, but fantasy in the tradition of dungeons and dragons, such as dragons, elves, gnomes, fairies and the like
I would like some element of my pages to be done by hand, too. I am a big fan of collage, but I really don't like receiving something that is just a computer page print out of someone else's art, so if you prefer to collage it, by all means collage it! I will be binding mine on the...hmm, I'll change it up and make it the top. Please leave the top inch or so without anything thick; I've messed up some pages trying to shove pages in! And if the backs could be pretty with scrapbook paper or the like, that would be swell.



Above all everybody PLEASE ENJOY this experience, it is designed to be FUN.

Yay! Altered Sunshine sounds so happy! I'm happy! Happy to be a member of altered sunshine!

Yup have to agree I liked both suggestions of Altered sunshine and the Moonlight one I even tried to join the two together LOL we will just have to run a sequel !!

goodmorningstarshine
10-01-2008, 07:16 PM
Okay, so funny story. I have some real short term (and long term, for that matter) memory issues. It wasn't until you just wrote about Altered Sunshine and Moonlight Masterpiece that I realized that I thought of those. Of course it makes me happy; that's why I made it up! Duh, Crystal!

Lily Lemon
10-02-2008, 12:16 AM
To get in the spirit, I made a cover and page for my own journal! Now I feel ready to start working on alteredmommy's pages! I have ideas brewing but need to get a couple other pesky things out of the way forst.

Question: I did read somewhere that it's two pages. Is that right?

Thanks!

Question: I did read somewhere that it's two pages. Is that right?

Thanks!

Yes that's right! now the pages can be joined i.e. a continuation of the picture/theme using the 2 page spread as your full art space OR you can do 2 separate pages, but both obviously covering the set theme. Having just read that even to me who knows what I meant before I wrote it, it's clear as mud!!!

mmm......tough one......chocolate, maybe? :spinny:

10-05-2008, 03:38 PM
don't think I'm the one able to answer that question at the moment!!! If you find out the answer let me know = better lat than never LOL

goodmorningstarshine
10-05-2008, 05:53 PM
Yeah, I was afraid of that...you are all are saving your secrets to a good happy life until you have to do journalling!

goodmorningstarshine
10-06-2008, 05:31 PM
We should talk more. I'm finished with one of isisjean's pages. I journalled. Is everyone proud?

hokeycokey
10-06-2008, 05:42 PM
well done goodmorningsunshine....I'm stressing about isisjean's pages and i haven't finished yours yet! I'm over halfway through my first page - nearly completed the artwork, then a bit of journalling to do. I have the basic sketch done on my second page, so not too bad. Hopefully I'll get some more done tomorrow (my only day off this week!)

Lily Lemon
10-06-2008, 05:54 PM
I have one of alteredmommy's pages drawn and ready to paint. I have some ideas for the other page. I think hers is the hardest topic/theme!

goodmorningstarshine
10-06-2008, 06:01 PM
Really? I am all ready for hers! Or at least one of hers. It's the journaling thing that's killing me here. I've never journaled before. I haven't been in a circle journal before, either, so I'm not really sure my page is the type of thing we are supposed to be doing, anyway. I searched all over the internets, but there aren't very many examples that don't look like a bunch of scrapbooking elements arranged in a visually pleasing manner. (Not that there's anything wrong with that or anything).

Are we all going to post pictures of our work so we can help each other, or we will we wait until we send them to our partners. I feel like I need guidance!

Lily Lemon
10-06-2008, 09:07 PM
Isn't that funny! 'cause I think I could take on "The Good Life."

I would love it if we would post but I'll wait to see what FF says!

fantasy firebird
10-07-2008, 03:35 AM
POST ON my little friends!! There each of you are thinking that yours is the worst - and you are ALL WRONG!!! Girl power!! It would be all right if I didn't keep thinking of the Spice Girls - yuck!!!!
When I did the pages on Nickys group I stressed out the whole time over her theme Venetian carnivale, I panicked I worried I started numerous pages prior to needing to - and the result??? Well if I say so myself it was one of the better pages (doesn't say much for the others LOL)
I would love you all to post as much as you want to - pictures included, we could be a self help circle journal group!!
Don't worry about getting the go ahead for things from me - I am a very laid back momma!! As long as everyone is happy and shows their faces here so we know you are all around you can chatter on for all you're worth!! It will be nice to be able to have a thread to visit where there is something happening each day.
Oh and by the way - I haven't even started!!!!!

hokeycokey
10-07-2008, 03:56 AM
I think that the journalling aspect of some themes is going to be the hardest as I rarely/never write about my personal feelings...I suppose we should look at it as some kind of therapy....a chance to get things off our chests....

Lily Lemon
10-07-2008, 04:43 PM
FF, I'm sorry if you're having trouble with my theme!:( A couple of different ways to think of it/options would be:

Strong women
how little girls grow into powerful women
images of female strength
your own experiences discovering girl power/ growing into a strong woma
quotes from and about....

etc.

Let me know if this is still troublesome!

Lily Lemon
10-07-2008, 04:45 PM
Alteredmommy, is some religious content still okay? For the page I'm working on, I'm doing my version (in iconic style) of St. George. I haven't decided the content of the second page.

Oh I have a few ideas but whether its what you expect will be something else entirely!! If I can explain I think that the suffragette movement woul be a good example of girl power, its just the case of attempting to work out what to do with the idea and in what formatt - Sheesh certainly giving me something to get the brain working!!

Lily Lemon
10-09-2008, 01:03 AM
Yes, great example! :) I know what you mean....with alteredmommy's, I have the idea but to make it work...hmmmm (scratching head)....

Lily Lemon
10-11-2008, 10:20 PM
Ok, I guess I'll go first!

Here's my first page for alteredmommy.This was really tough for me. I used Sharpies, Inktense pencils, watercolor crayons, acrylics, and, on his halo, Lumiere paints for the effect of "gilding."

hokeycokey
10-12-2008, 04:26 AM
Well done lily lemon! Fabulous artwork, I love it...and i'm sure alteredmommy will too.

fantasy firebird
10-12-2008, 07:07 AM
it reminds me of the stained glass windows that have the pictures of knights etc on them. good work!!

This is awesome! I love it.

Lily Lemon
10-12-2008, 09:10 PM
Awww...thanks, everyone! I started the second page last night so maybe I'll have something to show in a few days.

fantasy firebird
10-17-2008, 03:25 AM
well I have started!! just the one page, and all I have is the writing on it so far LOL I suddenly remembered the poem - The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world. Seems to me that poem could signify Girl Power!! Now to find a decent cradle picture!!

Lily Lemon
10-19-2008, 08:03 PM
CAn't wait to see!

10-20-2008, 03:16 PM
same here!! I too can't wait to see what will happen to these pages LOL

Lily Lemon
10-21-2008, 08:56 PM
I'm almost done with alteredmommy's second page (waiting to figure out how to paints folds in the fabric of the sleeve of the robe) and I'm playing around with hokeycokey's first page (just because I'm stuck on the other, not 'cause I'm really anal and do things waaaaaay ahead of time!)

hokeycokey
10-24-2008, 12:17 PM
goodmorningstarshine - your pages are in the mail - hope they arrive safely!

goodmorningstarshine
10-26-2008, 05:16 PM
Thank you! I need to mail too. I just never have time to go to the post office, as I work during po hours.

hokeycokey
10-27-2008, 05:16 AM
no worries, alteredmommy - I'm sure they will be worth the wait ....glad to hear you still have the all clear after five years - congratulations!!

goodmorningstarshine
10-30-2008, 06:09 PM
I'm still around. Still haven't gone to the post office. Ergh. They are done though. I promise! I should figure out how to use the scanner already...what I need is proof!

fantasy firebird
10-31-2008, 06:35 AM
Well one page is now completed for my girl power theme!!! Bet this isn't what you expected when you set this theme!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BTW the quote reads "Even Wonder Woman has big knicker days...."

So sorry for my posting delay. I just got a new job (not very fun, hopefully it will improve) and I totally forgot where the thread was and just now found it (thank god!). :)

I am doing so well on Fantasy Firebird's inspiration page (I think you will love it...I am so happy with my work and am so excited to hear the review!)

I do have a quick question, and I apologize if I, once again, just plum forgot, this is for a FULL, two-page spread (left and right) correct??? Please let me know ASAP!!

Thanks! I will have the first page(s) out next week!!!

Stacey

hokeycokey
11-21-2008, 11:45 AM
Here are my pages for isisjean - I found them tough as they weren't 'art' based. (Although I couldn't resist drawing a picture on the second!) It was good, however, to have the challenge of doing something different. Hope that you like them.

isisjean
11-21-2008, 02:02 PM

lovely page ff - i especially like the first. i'm ashamed to say that i haven't even started thinking about your pages for this month. your theme of 'inspiration' is very poignant as i don't have any at all at the moment! i'm very worried about my job as the company has been closing stores every day and the receivers are coming in next week. don't know even if we'll be paid this month.

Lily Lemon
12-14-2008, 12:58 PM
I finished Goodmorningstarshine's second page and I'm reposting a scan of the first since no one noticed it when I posted it before!:( I think it's quite cute!

12-14-2008, 10:18 PM
I like them very very much! I'm sorry I didn't comment. I've not been on the site regularly for a while, and I guess I missed it. I love your both of my pages; my book is going to be fabulous!

Lily Lemon
12-15-2008, 11:17 AM

12-25-2008, 12:22 AM
Guys, I've noted a problem. A pretty big problem.

I've been a very bad girl, and I fear you are all going to hate me.

I am almost ready to send out my round 3 pages, so I was looking at the spreadsheet yesterday to find out where I would be sending them to. I glanced at my address, and it's wrong. I was married at the end of May. The address is my new address with my husband, but the zip code is my old home address! I didn't notice anything before because I received hokeycokey's pages with no problem, but I must have written down the wrong zip way back when. The correct one is 63010.

I feel so awful about this. I'm sorry guys. Lily Lemon, I really hope you haven't mailed yet. If you have, maybe the post office will come through for us again...

Oh, and Merry Christmas.

Lily Lemon
12-25-2008, 01:18 AM
I have mailed but if it comes back, I'll send it again. No worries! Life's too short!

goodmorningstarshine

(How do we not have a smiley that's batting it's eyelashes hopefully? Sheesh!)

Lily Lemon

I don't hate you! :) It seems like an easy mistake to make!

goodmorningstarshine
12-27-2008, 07:56 PM
Alteredmommy, I did receive them, yesterday. I received Lily Lemon's the same day, so my zip code snafu did not completely destroy our circle!

I loved both sets of pages. I really love how you made the clouds behind your dragon; that's a really cool technique that I look forward to "borrowing" in the near future.

hokeycokey
12-28-2008, 07:42 AM
oh dear...is it that time already? I really need to move with FF's pages! fortunately we are both in the uk so mailing time should be pretty quick....please be patient with me if they are a little late FF.....bloomin' xmas....my routine is completely disrupted!

fantasy firebird
12-29-2008, 01:17 PM
Your pages haven't come back to me yet goodmorningstarshine, hopefully they will show up on your end as its been 3 weeks since I sent them. Since I just now uploaded them to my gallery here's a little preview....

So what with him and back to work, never mind Xmas as well I have to admit that no art has been done! Are the rest of you doing better than me??

Lily Lemon
01-08-2009, 07:49 PM
I mailed Isisjean's pages early. They're due for the Feb 1 mailing. I'm sorry to send ahead of schedule but I have some other things that will keep me busy in the coming months so I'd rather send early than late. If you're ready for a peek at your pages, Isisjean, let me know and I'll post!

goodmorningstarshine
01-08-2009, 09:48 PM
I am still planning to mail this week, next week at the latest. I think they're done (I'm still not completely satisfied) but I hate going to the post office.

Are we supposed to be giving/receiving iTraders for this? Just wondering 'cause I think I've only gotten two out of four.Not that it really matters, just wondering :)

goodmorningstarshine
01-15-2009, 02:53 PM
I don't think I've gotten any, either. I'm not sure. I do think I"ve left I traders for everyone. If I haven't please let me know. I mailed your pages today, LIly Lemon!

Thank you for letting me know. I know that I received yours the same day I did altered mommy's and I thought I gave I traders at the same time. I'm on it!

Lily Lemon

It's not a big problem. I don't need more itraders to get into swaps or anything !:) Just checking that I understand what to do.

I'm so with you! I need to get to work on my Feb/mail first week of March pages. I used to only really do chunky pages, but I've been signing up for atcs recently, and doing way too much. The problem is that it takes so much less time to make atcs, it's easy to put bigger projects off. I need to buckle down!

Alteredmommy, are you still binding yours on the top?

goodmorningstarshine

Awesome. Maybe I'll try to do something a little different with yours...

Here are Fantasy Firebird's pages. I know they aren't due until March 1 but I got really arty with having two weeks off at Christmas and just having a nine-day weekend (weekend, MLK, Jr. Day, birthday trip, another weekend).

My Jan pages were mailed out on Thursday...They've been done, I just got to the evil post office then. Sorry it took so long; they should arrive soon.

I too have taken my time getting these mailed out, though not all was my fault: new job, sickness, an engagement...I will get your pages out today, Theresa, and will use Global Priority most likely!

I wonder how many times I've mentioned how much I hate the post office during this cj? I'll go count.

goodmorningstarshine
02-24-2009, 08:16 PM
5 times. It seems that my hatred of the post office has steadily increased during the past five months, too.

fantasy firebird
02-25-2009, 10:33 AM
lol poor you - mind you I haven't found much to make me smile about the postal service here recently!! But then have I not received things because they were sent and west missing or because they were never sent and the person concerning is blaming the post office?

goodmorningstarshine
02-25-2009, 07:01 PM
I've wondered about that. I've never had anything I mailed or anything mailed to me not arrive, although sometimes it takes quite a while. I just don't like going to the post office.

Last Thursday I spent 4 hours packaging up all my swaps with returned envelopes, got halfway to the post office and realized I left alteredmommy's CJ pages on my dresser. I turned around and went home because they were so late, but things like that always seem to happen when I go there. I need to just package things up as I finish them so it won't take so long to do them all together, then I won't get so frustrated.

Showing off!! LOL I'll tell the truth now ........for some reason I got it into my head that both GMSS and isisjean wanted fantasy and as I am better at that theme at the moment I decided to do them all at the same time....only to realise when looking for the addresses that isis had a different theme LOL
Extra pages anyone ????

isisjean
03-02-2009, 05:29 PM
Hokey, please let me know when the pages arrive. And, I do apologize for their delay!

Firebird, great pages!

Yep! I plan to go to the evil post office tomorrow, so I am working hard on Hokeycokey's pages this evening. I drew some rather creepy pics at work today, so it's shouldn't be too hard to bring it all together!

Alteredmommy, I'm glad you like them...I know you said you like it when things don't line up, so I thought it would be up your alley. Scanner's dead, or I would scan everything.

Hokeycokey, I'm glad you like your pages too. I was pretty creeped out by them myself.

Fantasy Firebird, I received your fabulous CJ pages! I loved them, and that fairy is even cuter in person. Thank you!

Hi Fantasy,

I got your pages! Thanks, they are fun!

To the lovely lady who wants those fantasy pages, shame on you, :jiggy: for picking a great topic!!! :)

I am having so much fun getting your pages done, but it is so slow going because of all that I am doing. I will let you know when they are mailed! I am sorry they are coming so late. I am doing something with thorned vines, all twisted and wrapped within each other (hand drawn, which is why it is taking so long, sketched, inked, colored!) and will have fairies within the thorny bushes. I may add some flowers...maybe a little embossing to sparkle up the page. Anything you are especially interested in having?
