    my theme is going to be "dark art + found poetry."
    I updated my available ATCs on January 9th . . . if I'm slow to respond, it's nothing personal. I'm always willing to trade!

    -do you typically gesso the pages?
    thank you!
    you can decorate the cover of the moleskine once you receive it fully filled with art--or you can do it before. it's up to you. you should be able to do the inside covers + the non-accordion pages, plus two of the accordion pages, if kati's findings are the same as mine.

    usually, people don't gesso the pages, BUT the pages do NOT take watercolor paints. so, they're great with acrylics and with art markers and pencils, but the paper doesn't hold up under extremely wet media. wait 'til you feel the paper for yourself, and i think you'll find that the gesso might be a personal preference, but many people don't do that.

    Awesome theme Kati! Mine is definitely circus - from dark and freaky (think Carnivale TV show) to 1950's midway retro themes.

    i'm just sayin', as i don't want people running outta room in their moleys!
    Yes, you are right! Since I cut and pasted parts of the original write up that I did from when we still thought we would only have eight people I bet I missed a number .

    if there are 30 pages and 3x9=27, wouldn't that leave 3 pages for the owner, not 2? as well as the 2 intro pages, right?

    Katilady - outsider art - I've never heard of this! Another thing I love about ATCs I am always learning something new!
    Cool theme, looking forward to it!

    Amyfaerie - I like your theme too - I love found poetry and hardly get a chance to do it.

    Everyone is coming up with great themes. I was thinking of the Elements air earth fire water spirit - not sure yet though.

    Mother F. Kati, I know it's a long shot, but could I go on a waiting list until August 1 in case the unthinkable happens?

    Kates thanks for organizing...Luscious Theme, I love it! I'm ready to do some ferocious Giggling!

    CJ adore you for organizing this sweet thing!
    The rest of you ...Yeah I am drooling over the whose, whose in this Moley Group!

    I see a specialist for my wrist on Thursday, once I find out whether they are going to do surgery or not I'll choose a theme. In the vein of positive thinking I ordered my Moley, surgery be damned!

    wow, I love the themes so far. I feel challenged! Not sure on mine yet. Cindy sorry about your wrist. maybe that means your art is going to take on a more gestural, loose toward abstract quality, a whole new style!

    I was like five minutes too late to get into this one, so I'm going to pout and heckle from the sidelines.

    Me and Sparky went on a gun moll bank robbing spree for a long time. Now that we are rich ladies living in Jamacia, we thought we'd try to find a moley group. When we take a break from sipping fruity drinks and doing live action visual art on cabana boys with finger paints.

    goodmorningstarshine, you are sooooo on my wavelength! Deep breath, relax, (me that is) don't think about painting no cabana boys (no idea what a cabana boy IS, but I don't think I should be let loose near them....

    Not mia, just wholly taken up with preparing my portfolio for Art School. And NO, contrary to popluar opininion I didn't do it to meet the nice young male students. Freshers week is only two months away! LOL Would you let this woman loose near your grandson?
