I was clicking thru blogs and ran across this page

http://www.art-e-zine.co.uk/Belgothic.html

Just love the look of the book - so of course I couldn't wait to post a swap :)
this one is larger than the one I'm thinking of - 4" wide by 6" high would make a nice book - so will post a templet later today after I get home and post cm sizes as well.

* Pages need to be in my hands by Jan 5, 2009

* last sign up/or drop date: Jan 1, 2009

* This will be a 4 or 6 page for 4 or 6 pages in return

* Please include your name and screenname on the backs of your pages and please make the backs look pretty too

* Those in the USA - Please include a self addressed Envie with postage (send what it took to mail them)

* International - include a self addressed label - I will take care of return postage and envies.

* Please Contact me if you can not make the mail by deadline.

************************************************** *********
*Theme - Gothic Arches!!!

*Media - all styles - but please send only your best.

*Size - 4" x 6"

Click here for templet - 15821
when you print - set your printer at 113% size to get the correct size on the templet

just added it to my flickr site - download it and print full size page and you get the correct size too.

*Base - please use something sturdy - such as watercolor paper or chipboard from cereal boxes - mat board would be a bit too thick for this - Please keep chunkies off the left edge so that these can be bound

* And please post pics of your beauties to the thread - that's part of the fun - seeing all the wonderful pages everyone makes :)


so who wants to make some of these beautiful pages?

Isa, thanks for posting that! I printed it out and it looks like it is 4"x5", so it is a little too small.

Isa, thanks for posting that! I printed it out and it looks like it is 4"x5", so it is a little too small.

When I printed it, it came out huge! Almost the size of the paper. :laugh:

ElectaBlue
10-17-2008, 05:02 PM
Now that is strange! I wonder why it is coming out different? It says it is postcard size, so it should really be 4x6.

goatgoddess
10-17-2008, 05:04 PM
corrie04 - templet is now up - sorry been wasting my vac time shopping and messing about <G>

Batraplume - thanks - but I didn't use her's because it prints out different on different computers - at work it came out huge - like 8 inches tall.

kalipso84, Lise Bu and amyfaerie - so glad you are all joining! welcome to the swap :) pm me when you are ready for my address.

goatgoddess
10-17-2008, 05:06 PM
fingers crossed the templet I posted all prints out correctly :err:

she says in her blog that for some reason it printed out different sizes - but that is strange that it does.

PaperScraps
10-18-2008, 10:42 AM
GG - the template you posted doesn't print correct for me. I printed it 2 times and it's 3 1/2 across the bottom and 5 1/2 at it tallest. Did anyone else get it to print correctly?

goatgoddess
10-18-2008, 08:08 PM
Well Pooh! you are right it prints small! The jpg doesn't print right either - back to the drawing board

goatgoddess
10-18-2008, 09:24 PM
Ok tried to redo the PDF file but it does the same thing - if you set your printer at 113% size it will print it to the correct size

sorry the banner worked great but for some reason it won't on this one :err:

I can also e-mail anyone that wants it the jpeg.

just added it to my flickr site - download it and print full size page and you get the correct size too.

Still lurking... :P Goatgoddess, I tried something else if this doesn't work (because I'm stubborn! and would like to help too): take one of the gothic archs presented in the link you gave in your 1st post or with the jpg uploaded in your Flickr gallery. Copy & paste the picture in MS Publisher or Word (or that kind of software) and adjust the size with the rulers (in the upper left corner of the A4 sheet for example). Print it. Then cut out the arch and if everything goes well you have your template.
Does this make sense?

Still don't know if I will join... even if I'd like to, I need to make a break in the making of Chunky pages.

goatgoddess

okay . . . so we ARE chunking these up, right? i don't wanna start chunking if this is not what everyone's doing! :)

i worked on the bases today . . . . and ooooh, i'm loving the size! btw, printing the template at 113% worked perfectly for me!

PaperScraps
10-21-2008, 08:10 AM
That's a good question. I assummed it was NOT a chunky book. :laugh: Whadaya say gg?

amyfaerie
10-21-2008, 10:39 AM
lol! now, either i'm wrong or mary's wrong . . . i don't want to add dangly things if that's not what everyone's expecting to get.

aaaah . . . i'll have nightmares of being the person whose pages crap up everyone's books of gothic arches . . . as in this brief dramatic retelling . . .

Artist 1:
"my book would be beautiful if it weren't for that jackass, amyfaerie. always dangling bits of garbage off her pages."

Artist 2:
"i know. you'd think she'd run out of crap to tie onto things sooner or later."

Artist 1:
"i think she picks it out of the gutters and dumpsters."

Artist 2:
"i hate her."

Artist 1:
"me, too."

The original posting said this was to be chunky. Go read it. ;)

goatgoddess
10-21-2008, 11:10 AM
do what best fits your design - I'm thinking along the lines of using small chunky bits on the face of the page myself but please do what fits for you. It will all work :)

amyfaerie - I like your chunky bits - I never find such goodies :)

:laugh: You are too funny. I only assumed it wasn't supposed to be chunky based on the examples. I happen to LOVE your chunkies!

amyfaerie
10-21-2008, 12:43 PM
ha ha! cool enough. :laugh:

i have some chunkies on the face of the pages, and i'll probably add a bit of minimal junk, but that's it. these arches would look SO nice accordion-bound, too! i might try to do that with my returns.

GG, I finally got a Template to print out of flickr, but it is just a wee bit smaller than an actual 4x6 rectangle. Shall I just trace around the template? I know...people probably didn't notice cause they just traced. Only I would cut out exact 6x4 pieces of cardboard first! Just want to make sure I am doing it right before I cut. Thanks!!

ElectaBlue
10-28-2008, 01:57 PM
I am glad you brought this up, Shoreart. I never could print out one that worked from any of the choices, so what I did is made my own template by expanding the one that was too small to fit a 4x6 inch space. I hope that is ok because I already got them all cut out of my collaged backgrounds.

Do you think that will be ok? I suspect they are going to vary a little bit anyway and I never notice size differences in chunky pages unless they are WAY off because all the chunky bits obscure any discrepancies.

shoreart
10-28-2008, 02:53 PM
I guess. The only places where there would be much difference would be in the gothic arch. But chunky book pages make an inexact book anyway. It will just add to the charm of having pages from different people.

goatgoddess
10-28-2008, 02:54 PM
Yes - both ways will work - no worries :)

sorry that dern templet has been such a hassel.

ElectaBlue
10-28-2008, 03:34 PM
GG,no need to apologize! I was thinking about a template in my last swap, but was afraid I would have these very problems.

Artcards - your kitty is wild looking <g> and your arch is beyond cool - can't wait to see it finished.

Thanks for the prayers - Hubby came thru fine - was a long day but very good - now if I could get him to go lay down but he had a happy pill before coming home so isn't feeling any pain at the moment. hope it doesn't bite him in the morning.

wow i'm glad to be part of that swap :) you ladies are really creative. started cutting mine todfay and hopefully be done by the end of the month (i know deadline is far away but the PO has been funny lately with long delays :/ )

ps does anyone know how to load pictures like the poster before me?

Sure! Load your pic into the gallery, then right click on it and go to 'properties'. A box will pop up, go to 'location' and copy the url there. Come back here and you will see a little icon that is yellow and it looks like 2 mountains in the posting box. Click on it and paste the url you just copied into the box and hit 'ok'. Voila!

11-09-2008, 10:05 PM
wow, ladies - really wonderful arches! this is going to be an awesome swap! I especially like crftyscrapper's 1st tree and Anne's b&w lady - but they're all very nice.

Can the backs be nicely covered in a pretty paper...or do we have to do decorative work on them as on the front?

Can the backs be nicely covered in a pretty paper...or do we have to do decorative work on them as on the front?

Hmmm, my backs are not nearly as "fancy" as the fronts. :) I hope that's ok.

goatgoddess
11-24-2008, 07:32 AM
the backs can be like you do on chunkies - nice if they happen to show when displayed - like as a shrine on a table top - but not overly - the main show is on the front <G> so pretty paper work just fine with your artist info of course :)

shoreart
11-24-2008, 12:08 PM
Here are some of my gothic book pages. These are spoken for in this trade.

I have 2 pages done except for the backs. I have a couple of questions. How detailed are people making the backs? Are we supposed to go all out or is it more like a chunky where there is some decoration but less so than the front? Also, is it required that we 'chunky' these? I almost feel that add too much would detract from mine...Thanks!

HHC
12-10-2008, 01:26 AM
Cool pages! I don't think we have to chunky them... and I'm curious about the backs too. I figured on using the same or a coordinating background, but wasn't planning on making it detailed, just putting in my info. Hope that's acceptable?

shoreart
12-10-2008, 10:48 AM
That's all I did. Some nice scrapbooking paper and my name and username...down at the bottom like a signature on a piece of artwork..which I guess this is!

goatgoddess
12-10-2008, 11:13 AM
katilady - those are beautiful!

Yes you are all correct - just a little pretty nothing fancy. it can be paint or paper. as far as chunky - not so much but a little chunky if you think it adds to your design - not much hanging off edges so people can display them standing or hanging or in a book.

JoyFlower
12-10-2008, 03:21 PM
Love, love, love all the pages so far! I am hoping I can start working on mine tonight.

I would love to bribe her for that very...special page. I've already mailed my pages though. Frequently my husband cops the "oh, that's very lovely, dear" attitude, but I think this would really get his attention!

Can you be bribed, goatgoddess? I'm in 2 of your atc swaps, so I could probably send something along with those...

cherbearvx - I had a notice of reg. mail trying to be delv on Sat.
it may well be them - I won't be able to get by the postoffice today - will try tomorrow

reg mail isn't really good for me - they want you to sign for it (sad thing I was home sat they didn't honk or anything - my house is off the road and if they don't honk I don't know they are there) - if you want to track your mail a DC number works much better over all at least for me. I work in Dallas and live a hour away - the post office I have to go to get my mail closes at 4:30 pm - I get off at 4:00 pm

will see if I can come in early and leave early tomorrow - should be able to - I know it will be a slow day after mth end. :)

by the way - wonderful arches!!!
monday shoud be a big mail day - lot's of arches on the their way - will post a update when I get home tonight after work.

corrie04
12-29-2008, 01:15 PM
Thanks cherbearvx!

The flying cow is a mixed media hodge-podge of stuff. Lots of layers, collaging, (the cow is collaged, then altered with PITT & gel pens), rubber stamps, paints, etc.

The crooked corn crib is actually "standing" behind my parent's house. I took a picture of it, printed it out on photo paper, and then altered it with water-soluable oil pastels. I love the results.

Yeah I do plan on a part two for sure :)

I expect today to be a BIG mail day - only got a couple of things (not fun mail) on New Years Eve.

I won't be swapping till the sunday after the 5th so there is plenty of time yet. :)

I am still working on mine. I have company so I got up early and am sewing away on mine. It is good to know you aren't swapping on Monday since I can't get mine in the mail until tomorrow.

I am sorry to be so slow! I am still trying to finish up my last Christmas present. I don't know why I didn't finish these up months ago, like I usually do with swaps.

no worries - you are just next door - mail wise.

I still need to finish a Christmas present for my daughter and her soon to be hubby - so I understand for sure - She got her big gift several mths ago but still wanted to give her something on Christmas - she got two pillow forms, Coke a Cola fabric and a promise that I will finish them before the end of Jan <g>

My arches will be going postal today!

Below are pictures but they are cuter in person b/c I don't know how to really use my camera.:mad:
