    #4 Holey Moley! - Japanese moleskine exchange (full)

    Holey Moley! - Japanese moleskine exchange


    Welcome to our new home! Here is the basic info....as people ask questions and they are answered, I will add the info to the first post.

    1. Every artist starts with a Japanese folded moleskine (name, address, username, as well as travel-plan written in book). The owner of the moleskine decides whether the contributions of the other artists to her moleskine should follow a certain theme or not. If you have another moleskine already, that's fine!

    2. Each artist will draw, make a collage, paint, or use whatever media on 3 and a half pages per moleskine. After finishing an entry the moleskine will be send to the next person. Each artist gets as much time as they need to finish their contribution to each moley within reason.....I suggest 1 month is a good guideline to try and work to. If you are having a busy month and need more time, that's cool, just keep the group well informed. The first entry will be made by the owner of the moleskine. Artists are encouraged to interact with the other images in the book. Please be respectful.

    3. When the book is full, i.e. when one side of the unfolded book is filled, the book will be sent back to its original owner.

    4. Please communicate regularly in this thread. Let us know that you received or sent a book.

    5. Most important: let’s enjoy this adventure and have fun!

    Can everyone send me their address please and I will make a central file with rotations and addresses on them.
    Please people let me know your themes!
    If people would like to decorate their cover and do their first pages and upload them to the thread that would be nice so we can see some eye candy.
    I plan for us to mail off our journals for the first rotation at the beginning of August. That gives us plenty of time to buy/order our moleskines and do our coveres and first pages.

    One last thing...there is a pouch at the back of the moleskine that we could put little things in if we wanted...suggestions have been made for an ATC in your own theme or an ATC that represents your art or style.
    It has also been suggestion to include a photo of ourselves on the back of this ATC, up to you!

    Players:
    knesi07 - birds! fun, funky, colorful, black and white, realistic whatever the artist would like to do....have fun, be creative, no stress.....
    ElectaBlue - Emily Dickinson
    Pippin - Flowers/Floral Wonders
    Batraplume - Exotic and/or tropical mood" (make me dream!!)
    KatieV - happy/funky/colorful houses
    Loralou - Nature in Vivid Colour
    Marla412 - White
    lilbad - Sheep, anything Ireland, quirky houses, lavender!

    Green= sent
    Blue = received

    Travel Plan - purple = sent on to the next person
    Loralou => knesi07 => Pippin => Marla412 => KatieV => Batraplume => ElectaBlue => Lilbad

    knesi07 => Marla412 => Batraplume => ElectaBlue => Lilbad => KatieV => Loralou => Pippin FINISHED!

    ElectaBlue => Loralou => Lilbad => KatieV => knesi07 => Marla412 => Pippin => Batraplume

    KatieV => Batraplume => Marla412 => Lilbad => ElectaBlue => Pippin => knesi07 => Loralou

    Marla412 => ElectaBlue => KatieV => Pippin => Loralou => Lilbad => Batraplume => knesi07

    Lilbad => Pippin => knesi07 => Loralou => Batraplume => ElectaBlue => Marla412 => KatieV FINISHED!

    Pippin => Lilbad => Loralou => Batraplume => Marla412 => knesi07 => KatieV => ElectaBlue FINISHED!

    Batraplume => KatieV => ElectaBlue => knesi07 => Pippin => Loralou => Lilbad => Marla41 FINISHED!

    Thanks for starting the new thread, Loralou!

    I am still thinking on what theme I want. I can't give you an address right now, because we will move in August, but still don't know where we're going.

    Having 8 players sounds good to me! I need to do the math on the pages for my watercolor moley. I don't think doing a half page would work so well in there, unless people want to cut a page in half or something.
    Let's trade inchies!! Or I'll trade you ATCs for inchies.

    I am not sure of my theme yet, either. I think that is the hardest part, really. I think having 8 players sounds great!

    Hey, didn't want to throw a wrench into the system. I can wait until another time if u are full. Just let me know. I have a flat moleskin watercolor, but can get an accordian one. But, please, don't let another person(me) screw up your system!!!
    Lord, please keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth

    Everyone seems cool with it lilly! Plus it is cool to have 3.5 pages per artist so that they can merge into each other, it will add something to the book/experience.
    Let me know your theme when you are ready

    I am thinking of having mine the poems of Emily Dickinson, it could be just one line from one of her poems or a whole poem or whatever. Does that sound doable to people? I could include some of them with the book as examples. Or does this sound too hard?

    Great! She has so many great poems with good imagery to work from.

    I like the other themes so far, too, the birds and nature in vivid color. They are both so much the kind of thing I love to do!

    Welcome Lilbad! It's nice to be 8!

    I'm still thinking of a theme... I have a few ideas but can't make up my mind yet, let me think a little bit more... it's so new to me!

    ElectaBlue >> I don't know Emily Dickinson but I'll google and check. Just hope I will understand the content of her poems!

    Yay a new home!! I did an Emily Dickinson poem for a recitation when I was at school many moons ago!!

    Not sure of my theme but I will come up with something that can transition well! I think I will use the accordian book

    Since no one seems to have any objection, Emily Dickinson it is! I especially like her nature poems, which I think would be easy. You see the "hope is the thing with feathers..." quote everywhere.

    Sheep! I love that theme.

    Ok... I've googled and now know a bit more about Emily Dickinson. The few poems I read were inspiring, hope inspiration won't go!

    Great themes Lilbad, Loralou and Knesi!

    Choosing a them is hard! I can't decide if I wanna do something cute like hedgehogs or do something around poems like ElectaBlue.

    Thought people might like a peep at the cover I made yesterday

    I intended this to be really colourful (and vivid :p) but it ended up being quite muted. The silver paint is metallic and so it sparkles in the light making it more vivid.

    loralou i actually love the muted color. it looks like leather embossing in the photo. i'm thinking about my cover. i never got the cover done for the other moley i'm in, so for this one i'd like to have it done before i send it out.
