Welcome to Round II everyone! The first one was a blast and I'm glad to see some of the original members and some new faces!

Just to recap how everything works...

There will be two - 8x8 (sturdy) journal pages with an original photo (5"x5" or larger) attached on one page and then the artist's interpretation of the photo on the second page. For example, my partner's theme is "flowers;" therefore, I would take a photo of a flower and print it on photo paper and attach it to the first page. On the second page, I would then represent that photo/flower in a collage, drawing (realistic or whimsical), abstract, etc - using any type of media that I desired.

Nitty Gritty Details:
Original photos only
Photo must be 5x5 or larger.


If using charcoal or some other fun, "messy" medium, please be sure to spray some type of (non-sticky) sealant to protect your art and the other page.
Please decorate the back of your pages (no white pages) and include your user name, real name, and any other information that you wish to include.

Please try to remember to post scans of your pages before you mail them out (if able).

When mailing, please protect each journal page by placing WAX PAPER (or similar) between your pages to keep the pages from sticking together


Please check in at least once a week, so that we know you're alive and kickin'! If you'll be away from the internet (*gasp*), please let us know so that we don't worry.

Please give your partner an itrader point. If you don't receive a page for that month, your partner will need to get a NEGATIVE point and they will be removed from the group (per the moderators.)

The mail dates will be the 1st of each month. So our first mail date will be April 1.

Our mailing partners are listed below. (See the bottom of the message for everyone's theme.) When you mail out your pages, please make a note in the thread! Thanks!

Mailing Partners will be posted shortly.

Corrie mails to Katilady


1. Corrie04 - Theme: "Fallin' Apart" - Open to interpretation
Preferences: My pages are going in an 8x8 photo album. No need to leave binding space, nor do you need to decorate the backs.

2. Rachel - Theme: Pathways (any type - Literal or figurative)
Preferences: "Preferably 8X8 BLACK paper; will be in an album so don't worry about the backs; on the front, would love for you to write about where you took the photo, what interested you about it, etc... name and where you're from on the front somewhere preferably in white pen to go against the black paper."

3. Bright-Spark - Theme: Trees
Preferences: "I have no preferences, as I haven't made up my mind on how I am going to display these yet, I thought I would wait until they all came together and inspired me!"

4. Kysunflower - withdrew.

5. Katilady - Theme: Antique Stores
Preferences: "I have no idea how I will bind them so if you can do minimal deco on the back that would be great, with info please. Mixed media is my preference, but I trust your judgment."

corrie04, thanks for getting this going again!!

Yikes Crftyscrapper, don't know how I am going to take a photo of a Coneflower??? I better go and do some research!

That is why I expanded the flower selection! I figure if all else fails everyone could at least take pics of regular daisies! (I hope)

If you don't have access to any flower of this type pm me and we can come up with something different - OR - post some of your favorite pics and I will choose one. HEY!!!! That is actually a great idea! I would LOVE to choose a picture out of everyone else's favorite pictures!!!!!

Hey Corrie, Can I change my theme to include the above idea?????

corrie04
02-15-2009, 12:37 AM
Sure thing, Crfty!

Anyone can change their theme up to March 1.

Also, if you were not in the first round, please remember to PM me your address, phone, and email address.

katilady
02-15-2009, 01:05 AM
Corrie do you have my addy? Or should I send it again along with my # and email?

Crftyscrapper: We have coneflowers here, but they may not be in bloom when it is time to do your pages. Just to clarify, if we can't do coneflowers we can post, say 3 or 4, of our random faves for you to choose from?

As for my preferences, I have no idea how I will bind them so if you can do minimal deco on the back that would be great, with info please. Mixed media is my preference, but I trust your judgment.

crftyscrapper, thanks for adding to your original theme. I checked, there are coneflowers here (I just didn't know them by that name) however, they only flower between July and October. I know I don't have an existing picture, so I am stuck.

I think I would have similar problem with any similar daisy type flower, although I see I am only mailing to you on 1 July. This means I will have to do a photo reccie in June. I still that will be too early for these flowers to be in full bloom. :sad:

I take lots of photos of flowers, in fact spend a fair amount of time at the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh, so I would be able to do flowers, just not sure about daisies, and not sure if you have expanded your theme to be so general as 'all flowers'? I have a couple of flower photos in my gallery, please check them out - Hydrangea, Blue Poppy and Bee Orchid.

02-15-2009, 09:20 AM

It doesn't have to be just flowers anymore. Post up at least 4 photos of your favorites of anything and I will choose the one I like best. I will go look at you flowers anyway though. ;)

Kati--EGGS!?!?[/SIZE] [SIZE="3"] You're killing me!!

Corrie, my preferences are: preferably 8X8 BLACK paper; will be in an album so don't worry about the backs; on the front, would love for you to write about where you took the photo, what interested you about it, etc... name and where you're from on the front somewhere preferably in white pen to go against the black paper (I can't help it--I'm OCD)

Hmmm, so much for the size option working

Rachel
02-15-2009, 10:35 AM
Oh, and to further add to my craziness today: I am changing my theme to PATHWAYS. Pick any path you want--through the woods, in the city, I don't care. You can also put your own twist on the theme if you don't want to go literal.

Phew, phew, phew.......

I think that is a great idea! I must admit that I dithered a couple of times in round one whether the recipient would like the photo I had chosen, and thought I might have to post a couple of photos to the thread so they could choose.

I am so LMAO at this conversation!! ;)

BIRTH CANALS! You are so just not right, Kati! OMG! I swear if you stick a picture of a wide open va-jay-jay in an envelope to me-- and God only knows what your interpretation will be-- I'm going to give your name and address to the Eureka, California chapter of Jehovah Witnesses. :jiggy:

Well, I have until Aug to come up with a cone flower picture, I love blackete susans, so this will be fun.
Fallin apart sounds fun to interpet.

Got pathways covered.

03-15-2009, 10:27 PM
Corrie I have a question re: your theme. I have a friend that tried to put on a pretty face and let me photograph her during a depression she was going through. Would this fit your theme or are you wanting broken down cars and the like?

corrie04
03-16-2009, 08:17 PM
Katilady - I'm totally fine with that... in fact, I like that you took the idea a whole different direction.

The theme is TOTALLY 157% open to interpretation.

I ended up hating the first photo I took so I took a new one which I like much better! It's part of my crackle glass collection that I buy at flea markets, antique stores, etc...

Corrie, I know what I want to take a picture of for you. It's in downtown Massillon.

corrie04
04-18-2009, 09:09 AM
Katilady - I just emailed Cindy (Crftyscrapper) at her personal email address. I'd say you have 2 options. 1. Wait to do the page until we hear back from her... 2. Pick your favorite photo and go ahead and complete the pages as scheduled. It's up to you.

Donna - Did you ever receive your pages from her?

corrie04
04-18-2009, 09:14 AM
Corrie, tell Kati where we got that paper. I forget.

Corrie, I know what I want to take a picture of for you. It's in downtown Massillon.

We got the black paper at Hollos Paper Store (unless you used the stuff you got from European Papers last summer?)

Are you going to take a picture of the building that burned?

Rachel
04-18-2009, 09:24 AM
No, I used the stuff from Hollos. Kati, you could google them. They are in Barberton, Ohio, but I've never been on the website so I don't know how good the site is.

NO, I am not taking a picture of the burned buildings!

katilady
04-18-2009, 10:42 AM
I couldn't find a site for them--just directions to their store. Do you have a web address?

corrie04
04-18-2009, 11:19 AM
Here's the website. They're in Brunswick, Ohio. I don't think they do much mail order, but you could check.

The black paper is posterboard size and only cost 25-cents per each one. DEAL!!!

Bright-Spark
04-18-2009, 12:08 PM

Interesting afternoon, beautiful sunshine, 17 degrees, not much to you folks in CA, but this is Scotland!! :D

Interesting because I went antique store hunting. The one I walked accross town to see was just closing as I arrived because the lady had to leave early, typical!! Anyway, I took a couple of shots of another one round the corner.

I wanted to check with katilady if this was the sort of thing she was looking for? I am sure antique stores here are a bit different to ones in CA, hence my question.

No idea how I am going to interpret it of course......:skeptical: But I still have a few days to get another shot, and find inspiration.

Let me know if I am on the right lines.

katilady

Those pics are fine Sparky. You could also focus on one item as rachel did, or the shop owners, or the sign out front. Anything is fine! :)

Hi all, my life has been crazy along with my daughter having surgery unexpectedly. I "think" my life is about back to normal. (No longer sick, no more 13 hour extra shifts at work, etc.) So I am hoping to catch up with everything now.

I hope your daughter is OK, as well as you! Take care of yourself!

Oh no, please don't tell me Rachel's pages have gone missing.

I mailed on the 16th, so if they don't appear in the next day or two, I will start again.

Rachel
04-25-2009, 08:18 AM
No, no. Don't start again! I love my pictures!

I got your beautiful interpretation on Thursday but I'm in the middle of Ohio Achievement Testing at school so I didn't have time to post. I'm off to leave you an iTrader now!

Crfty- I'm so glad that things are settling down for you. I hate it when life takes you for a ride.

Did you get the pages that I sent you?

Bright-Spark
04-30-2009, 04:42 AM
katilday, how patient are you?

I have three photos, but I am not really happy with them, so I am going to continue prowling..... I will try to get the pages in the mail Monday at the latest!

katilady
04-30-2009, 09:03 AM
LOL Sparky! I can be patient if I must. It'll be worth it for your masterpiece!

Bright-Spark
04-30-2009, 12:47 PM
Oh dear, sorry Katilady.:sad:

I may have made a breakthrough this afternoon. Literally downloading photos as we speak....

Can I go slightly weird?? :D

katilady
04-30-2009, 02:06 PM
YES! I love weird!

Bright-Spark
04-30-2009, 02:10 PM
Well, I got the photo, I just need to see if I can do the interpretation....

I just found out this evening that our rent is being raised, more then we can afford, so I'm having to give up some things, my book club, and art trades (postage is a killer anyway). So I need for no one to send me anything, I can not send out more stuff. I have a gazillion supplies and stamps I bought just for atcs, as soon as I have time it's all getting boxed up and sent to the basement till I decide what to do with it. So keep an eye out there may be a giveaway in the future.

katilady

That's just awful Donna!

katilady, I forgot Monday is a holiday, so your pages will go in the mail Tuesday.

I suppose you want to see pics?

katilady
05-03-2009, 06:03 PM
It looks awesome! Yay!!

I am behind myself. It may take me a week to get pages to crftyscrapper. Bad Kati. :(

I would like to replace KYsunflower. Does anyone have anyone that they would recommend? Someone that is dependable and has above average skills?

I wonder if curbsidetreasure would be interested?

corrie04
05-06-2009, 06:37 PM
I'll ask her, Kati! Thanks for the suggestion.

Rachel - Thank you for the CJ pages of the fence post! I LOVE that picture and had a blast that day... even if you did scare the crap out of me for going upstairs in that house.

katilady
05-06-2009, 07:30 PM
I wanna hear THAT story!

corrie04
05-06-2009, 07:56 PM
We found an abandoned house where the roof had fallen in through 2 stories right into the basement. Of course we had to go take pictures. Rachel, either being very brave.. or very stupid... (:huh:*L*) went upstairs to take more pictures. I stood in the door way and watched the ceiling crumble each time she took a step and tried not to totally freak out. I had my cell phone out ready to call 911 - even if I didn't have a clue about where we were! *L*

katilady
05-06-2009, 08:18 PM
Rachel sounds like my kinda woman!

Rachel

It was a hoot, Kati! You would have loved it!

corrie04
05-06-2009, 09:38 PM
It was fun! We got some great pics that day. And you should have seen Rachel's pants when she came back to the car. She was covered from waist to ankle in burrs.

Corrie04, I arranged with Kati by PM to send my pages off when I finished my Marys so they could all go together. They only went this week :embarrassed:

I haven't received anything from Crftyscrapper.

Crfty is the organiser for the other CJ I am in. Rkolig posted this week that Crfty is just catching up after being off.

corrie04
05-16-2009, 05:43 PM
Okay, thanks for the update!

Be careful!!

I am meeting a friend in NY who has been travelling for the last 7 months round SA. Now he is off to explore NA.

I have asked if I can have his RV once he is done, so me and the cat can do the US!!:twitcy:

corrie04
05-18-2009, 07:44 PM
Hey everyone... I was contacted by a moderator and was told to remove crftyscrapper from the group since she would be unable to catch up. According to the CJ rules, if you didn't receive a page from her, for a previous mailing date, you are entitled to leave a negative (or a neutral) itrader. Please make your own decision on how you want to handle that.

I wish things could have been different. I hope she's okay and her art work will be missed.

katilady
05-20-2009, 08:42 PM
Sparky's wonderful pages arrived today!

05-20-2009, 09:12 PM
Thanks Kati!

Sparky - Do you want a "full tree" or would a photo of branches (with the tree's flowers) be okay?

katilady

kysunflower is still in the mailing rotation, but i thought she left the group???

Spark - I'm leaving on vacation tomorrow afternoon and won't be back until June 2. Your page is started and I'll finish it while I'm at the cabin... (I'm actually hoping that I'll find a better tree to take a pic of.)

Anyways... I'll mail your pages next week. Probably between the 3rd-5th. I'll confirm when they're mailed.

Bright-Spark
05-28-2009, 02:29 PM
corrie04, I won't be sending yours till the beginning of the week either.

I have to head North tomorrow to see an elderly aunt. I will be back Monday and hope to get on with it then. I will let you know when it goes in the mail, and post pics here!

katilady
05-28-2009, 03:37 PM
ya'll better post some pics, cause i don't get to play this month (though if i were smart i'd get a head start on Spaky's and Rachel's)!

Bright-Spark
06-04-2009, 03:29 AM
I haven't forgotten your pages corrie04, I am still dithering about the photo (I think I say that every time??).

Anyway, I have two, but both say to me 'Maybe', but not 'I'm the one!'

corrie04
06-04-2009, 06:41 PM
Bright - I'm in the same boat. I plan on deciding and getting your page done this weekend. It should be out in Monday's mail.

corrie04
06-06-2009, 06:01 PM
Sparky - I got the "art" part done. I just need to mount the 2 pages, scan, and mail. The art page has several 3d/textural elements. Hope that won't be a problem.

Bright-Spark
06-07-2009, 02:53 AM

Yes, bring me a man with a kilt on with nothing underneath.

07-19-2009, 04:21 PM
hey sparky i wanted to let you know your pages are almost done. i didn't draw for you, what i did was alter a photo. so you get the real photo and one i fooled with. i sanded it, scratched into it with an exacto knife, colored with oil pastels, made a frame with crackle paste and colored that with water soluble crayons. it's currently drying and i will post when it's safe to!

Rachel

PS It sounds great katilady. I wasn't expecting a drawing from you (although that would have been nice too!), one of your creations will be more interesting!!!:D

i did manage to draw for the one's corrie and rachel got, but your tree looked way to hard, lol!

Rachel
07-19-2009, 04:59 PM
Hey Sparky, I think I know which picture I want for yours. Just deciding on how I want to alter it. I'm currently in love with oil pastels BTW.

Bright-Spark
07-19-2009, 05:03 PM
Wow, I had forgotten I had two to come! oil pastels sound fantastic Rachel.

I am right Boss? I don't have anymore to do?
