View Full Version : Chunky Pages PAT - Due May 13th



Pages : [1] 2

Due date: May 13th

Sign-up date: May 1st or until full
Since this is a PAT, there are no withdrawal date, since a lot of artists start working on the cards immediately.

Participants: We will have up to four groups of six people each (24 total particiapnts). You can sign up for one or two groups, but no more than that to allow others a chance to participate.

Minimum iTrader: 15+

Chunky books (or their hanging equivalent) are collaborative works in which each artist contributes a page to each other artist's book. Usually these books are called "chunky books" because of the amount of stuff hanging from them--fibers, beads, wire, etc. You may also have heard these called "fat books".

For this swap, we are doing the chunky book PAT style. This means each person picks their own theme, and other members each create a page for them based on that theme.

Format: We will be creating 4x4" pieces of art. Please make sure they have a sturdy back. Since many people make their pages into books whose backs are seen, make the back at least somewhat visually pleasing!

Media: Open media on these books. Feel free to have fun and experiment!

Shipping costs: All participants must pay for their own shipping. Send along $6, well-concealed, no matter where in the world you are!

Mailing: Send me an address label, and package your pages well, so they wont get damaged on their way. Please write your name and user ID clearly on your pages and envelope, as well as indicate exactly who your pages are for.

Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for each person in your group and the host, that is me.

So, pick your theme, and have lots of fun!

PS! If your name is orange, Ive recieved your pages!

Could I join group 1 with the theme of fairy tales (either Grimm or happy/lighthearted)?

Also, could I send the $6 to you via PayPal, or would you prefer stamps to use in other swaps or cash?

adriayna

No Sarah, I am going to Say "Orange" for both sets. I started an orange chunky book yesterday at our Indy meetup and its not chunky enough yet.

But Sarah, your trees are so good! But you could do an Orange Tip Top Doll for me! I'd LOOOVVEE that! :)

OriginalYouth

Done. I've been loading up on orange ribbons lately too! Are you actually binding these, or are you going to hang them?

I'd like to join group 2 with a theme of unicorns.

goodmorningstarshine
03-01-2009, 01:11 PM
Could I be in groups 2 and 3? I would like my theme for both to be handdrawn/painted monochromatic green in the artists' own style. (That is to say trees, tip top dolls, portraits of wood nymphs, or whatever you do...)

If you feel like you just absolutely can't draw and/or paint, multi-media green would be okay, too.


Green is my favorite color ever, and I think it's time it had it's own chunky!

cbshai
03-01-2009, 01:20 PM
can I be in 2 groups (whichever ones you decide on) Coffee and Strong Women

Thanks!

Turquoise
03-02-2009, 03:13 AM
I would like to join two groups for my theme of "The Tudor Kings and Queens",

(for example: Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, Mary I, Anne Boleyn etc.)

Please include the real King or Queen of that time not the actors or anything from the show "The Tudors".
I also prefer if it was just one royal person per page and not just a whole lot of them on one page, if you know what I mean?
Oh if you want to pick one of Henry VIII's wives, thats fine too :)

mixed media, collage, embellishments and dangly fibers and charms are all fine by me :)

btw, if this theme is too hard, I can change it to a different theme..

malinmaskros
03-02-2009, 08:51 AM
I turn my back on you for one day, and what happens? You all gang up on me! Welcome, all of you!

There are 3 spots left in grp 3, and 4 spots left in grp 4. Join us now, because they are going quick!

Btw - Im really happy I got a head start on my pages - I made two yesterday, for curbsidetreasure and OY, both still need to be chunked.

When youre beginning to get stuff finished - Id love to see them posted in the thread! Its always fun to see what all of you are doing!

malin i love the page you made for me! its lovely & whimsical.

I'm so blasted excited! I joined atcsforall quite a while back to make chunkies. I just started making atcs again about a month ago. I wish there were 7 or 8 Chunky PATs for me to join!

OriginalYouth
03-02-2009, 09:15 PM
I'm a bit of a chunky obsessed mongoose myself. I probably should count my pages someday....my books stretch almost all the way across my 5 ft wide bookshelf!

goodmorningstarshine
03-02-2009, 09:21 PM
I know, they're just so wonderful, aren't they? If you want the truth, I started hosting atc swaps so I could have unlimited chunky swaps. People just weren't hosting enough chunkies!

adriayna

I'm binding them, Sarah! :) :) :) Wewt! Thanks!

I love your pages Malin!

I agree, I love love love Chunkies and just cannot get enough of them. I hope there will be more chunky PATs in the future, this is a really good idea you came up with Malin!

malinmaskros
03-03-2009, 08:27 AM
Ive been looking at chunkies for a while, but finally caved in for the "Pretty Girls Mixed Media", and it was so much fun - Im so in love with chunkies now, and I feel they are taking over all of my attention from ATCs. I feel a bit bad, though - Ive missed such great chunky swaps... Ive been drooling over the chunky PAT over at iATCs, and since no one hosted a chunky PAT here, I had to do it!
And since Ive joined several swaps, and begun two chunky books of my own themes, I have a feeling Ill soon need a shelf to house my chunky books too... There are something utterly irresistable about them!

curbsidetreasure and OY - Im happy you like your pages! OY - how can you NOT use an eraser?! I have to use mine ALL the time...

Ive been working on an orange page for adriayna, but it feels a bit empty, I think Ill add some words. Any other thoughts/ideas?

Awesome! So excited...I've never received a tip top doll before!

malinmaskros
03-03-2009, 09:20 AM
I like quirky, but when I add words, they usually end up more on the poetic side. I guess quirky is easier in your own language...

goodmorningstarshine

I see. The mystique of the ESL. Very cool.

I love my tip top doll! So beautiful and green! Thank you so much, OY!

I know I'm going to sound like a glutton, but if you never ask, no one knows your secret wishes, right? OY, don't feel pressured, but on the back of the chunky, would you please draw a happy little garden snake to go with your artist info? I know from looking at your gallery that you make adorable animals; I absolutely love your sheep and your hedgehog. If you are too busy, I totally understand. I don't want to be too demanding, I just really like your stuff!

You are too funny!
I realized afterwards that I wrote down 'Green Tip Top' but now see you wanted mostly handdrawn...hope mine is okay.

goodmorningstarshine
03-03-2009, 08:07 PM
Indeed, I did want a tip top, since you are so famous for them! ;) I'm hoping to also get a tree from Adrianya, a portrait from maria magenta, a fantasy character from dolores4fun, etc. You know, whatever the artist is best at. Hand drawn/painted mixed w/ other media is wonderful!

I love my tip top...I know she must have been hand drawn; I haven't seen tip tops in many magazines! :)

I'm just greedy. I want a tip top and one of your super cute animals. I've been swapping for ages on this site, and I rarely get any of your work, so this is my chance to have you as a captive creator.

Yes, it's a sister site of AFA, it's www.illustratedatcs.com . It's a juried site for hand drawn/painted work.

And darn hard to join too!

I love your pages, OY! And thanks all of you, Ive added some apple-y words to my orange page, Im a lot happier with it now. The oddest thing: Im waiting for an catalogue order (lots of stuff to make chunkies, all on sale!), and I got some orange ribbons, having no idea what Id use them for. Well, I do now!

But its still quite some time to go!

Just a little reminder - I know most of you are on the right track - now its only about a week left to work on your cards, then you really should send them to me - shipping is a fickle thing, and unfortunately you can never count on it to be fast...

the little red riding hood page is for kristinized, orange page for adriayna, geisha page for jonquil and marie antoinette for malinmaskros. the fantasy page isn't done yet.
i'm thinking about the red riding hood page and i'm probably going to add some text from the fairy tale before i send it out.
