    G-16 CJ Watercolorists on a Journey-Journal Pages

    I am feeling we should begin another watercolor journal page swap. I miss this challenge and would like to "get into" this committment again how about you?
    We will begin mailing our first pages with a due date of September 15, 2010 and after that by the 15th of the month for the next five months. Of course one can always mail early and ahead. When our 5 person participant list is complete I will pm participants a list of contact information with a mailing schedule starting at our name and mailing to the name below and so on working down this list. Pages will be side-by-side usually 6X6 or 8X8 and all watercolor mediums and pens are acceptable.
    Looking forward to this new venture.
    Please post to this thread your theme or subject choice, page size and PM your mailing address to me so I can compile a mailing list that will be pm'd to each participant.

    Mailing rotation starting September 15, 2010. You will be assigned a partner to mail to monthly. If you do not mail your page to your monthly partner, you will be removed from the rotation until that month is completed.
    If you cannot mail off your months committment please post to this thread, do not leave people hanging without knowing what is going on. This group makes a committment to each other like non other.

    Crafting4Goddess-nature 6X6
    Linda4atc-fantasy 8X8 side by side (mermaids, fairies, dragons, wizards, unicorns and such)
    pschfe1-magic 8X8side by side (light and dark, angels, unicorn, mermaids,Harry Potter, devils, witches, dark forest, light meadow)
    Jan-Flowers and gardens 6X6 side by side
    lilbad- 8X8 side by side, old buildings, sheep, Ireland, lavender
    Pauline, 6X6 side by side, landscapes and old houses


    Carole, our moderator, has assigned our mailing list for these swaps. Note the month and who you will be swapping pages with. I will pm you the contact information. This is new to me too.
    Also Carole has submitted the following: This should be posted at the top along with the guidelines, so that the players know that if they are late they are out until they catch up.
    And please mark when each person has received their page from their partner.
    As I stated before these have to be done in partners, with 5 players one is off that month.

    I'd love to play, if I can (not sure if I meet the iTrader requirement or not). My theme would be nature, 6x6.

    Thanks for signing up ladies, we need one more participant before starting. I noticed that we are all mixed medium artist but in this swap we need to work completely in watercolors and pens. Make sure you are up to this challenge. Journal pages are really special pieces of mail art.

    Hmm I only have one journal page in my gallery now. But I've done a couple others in water color before.http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gall...dex.php?n=8664 Harry Dresden and Bob 8x8 watercolor. I am still learning to use water colors but I think I can do this.

    I think I can do this - I've only done a few watercolor pieces (very beginner) I will make sure that what I put out will be something somebody will want or like. If I personally don't like what I have done, I will do over. You can check out my flicker page - would love the practice. Could I still join?

    Certainly kristib come along and lilbad I'm glad you found us. Never sick of your new found Irish themes. Well we have our group of five. Please post your theme here lilbad and "crafty", kristib and lilbad please pm me your mailing address and a phone contact. As a group we promise to hold that information for our own personal use only and ONLY if we need it. After we are done with this swap please discard it in a safe place.
    I will assemble a list with this information and pm this to each of you. You can mail before that date but the latest you can mail is Sept. 15, 2010. Be sure when you mail these beautiful pages you put a stiffening of some kind, such as some cardboard from a cereal box or back of a watercolor folder or something to stiffen it up. Most of us put our pages of art in a plasic baggie to keep it dry from possibly getting wet through the postal travels.
    Have a wonderful journey of research and painting.
    Please refer to the mailing schedule on the first posting of this thread, it has our mailing schedule assigned.

    OK I'm a little confused by the schedule. Each month we trade with person sending us one that same month? And one Month we do not trade? Is this correct?

    Also you said it would be ok if we made them up ahead of schedule?

    Darn I wish I didn't have this trip comming up, I'm already getting ideas for these pages. Ohh and sorry people for being the odd ball with 8x8, but that is the size they were doing back when I made my first page trades. LOL

    Hmm I am full of questions...

    On these pages do we put any information on the front? or just label them on the back?

    Pauline would like to join us. We have one month "off" spot on the mailing list that she could fill if each of you would be willing to mail each of the five months. What do you ladies think?

    Dear Jan, I am keeping a watch on this site to make sure all the girls are happy for me to join. I noticed I had put "Landscapes with a strong Aussie theme", what I meant was that is my preference for my own painting - hope I didn't confuse anyone.
    It is very cold here in southern Australia at moment.

    Pauline I was lucky enough to go to sydney on two occassions. I went up into the Blue Mountains. Unfortunately on our second trip we had planned to go into the interrior to see the red desert (is that what its calle?) but they had a freak storm and the hotel flooded, said it was the first time in over 20 years, they canceled our reservation.

    I wonder if I can find the pictures from my trip, previous marriage so not right at hand.

    Jan I too do mine side by side, I thought all were done like this... And I would like a username/signature on the front. Any other info can be front or back as the artist decides.
