    1. My theme is: Mixed media (or hand drawn) monochromatic - Open theme
    2. What I'm hoping for: Monochromatic / One main color - with limited accents in black/white/or other complimentary color.
    3. Key concepts: Seeing the beauty in all the tones and hues of one color family.
    4. Color scheme: Pick your favorite color and go with it.
    5. Websites / Samples: http://mixedmediamonday.wordpress.co...matic-sampler/

    Oh, Sarah - Are you going to be posting everyone's themes, etc on the first thread? It would make it much easier to find.

    1. My theme is: Funky Fairy Tales

    2. What I'm hoping for: Goofy, weird, and just downright bazaar variations on the typical fairy tale. You can take it anywhere from bright and silly to kind of creepy, though I have a goth fairy tale theme in another swap, so I'd prefer goofyness in this one. Feel free to throw tentacle arms and toasters in there too.

    3. Key concepts: Silly, funny, obnoxious Princesses, punk Queens, bright colors and just general goofiness. Have a good time with it!

    4. Color scheme: Whatev', dig?

    5. Websites / Samples: I don't really have any! HERE is a list of electronic Grimm fairy tales.

    1. My theme is: Texture
    2. What I'm hoping for: Scrumptious drawings and collages that use elements with texture to them, add sand or use texture medium, or whatever! If you want to, you could paint an interesting object or scene involving texture rather than have actual texture. I don't mind if pages get a little thicker.
    3. Key concepts: A sandy beach, or carved wood, or moss on a wall, I dunno, your imagination is probably better than mine. I don't want to be too specific so that you interpret it in your own way.
    4. Color scheme: I love bright and vivid colours. When I look through the gallery, I am most drawn to cards of this type.
    5. Websites / Samples:

    I can't wait to get started! And--Jealous!--Laurie's over at the art desk working on her cover art and I have to go to stooopid work. Bah! And everyone's picking such interesting themes and I still haven't chosen my poem! Augh! Not that there's really a hurry quite yet...and I've vowed to finish a handful of cards that are due sooner rather than later before I start playing with my book but I want to anyway! Do I *have* to go to work? It's awfully lovely out; I'd rather stay home and make pretties, luncheon on the new patio set and drink mimosas. Mmm...

    Dear Siren's Bosses:

    Siren is suffering from an extreme case of donwannaworkitis, and she needs at least a week off (with full pay of course) for recovery.

    Sincerely Yours,
    Dr. Muppet

    Y'know what makes that even funnier? My mom is Amy's boss. So I'll pass the message along.

    Hokay, my theme: Women.
    What I'm hoping for: is that you'll put art in my book...duh. Oh, wait, I get it. I'm leaving this open to wide interpretation. Any style or technique is fine. I prefer hand drawn/painted, but if you want to rock the mixed media, that's cool too. Serious or silly, meaningful or totally chaotic, it's up to you.
    Key Concepts: could be fictional women (Elizabeth Bennet, Juliet, Deanna Troi), women of power (Xena, Buffy, Geena Davis), real women (you!), or mythical ladies (the gorgon, greek gooddesses, vampires, nymphs). I think it's a subject you should all be familiar with.
    Color Scheme: As long as the colors work well together, I'm not picky.
    Samples: look in a mirror? I dunno, does anyone really need examples? I guess I could rassle something up...I'll be back to edit this when I find some example goodies.
