    Smile Who's ready for a Collage-a-thon Aug 20-22?

    Just Ducky and I were chatting, and decided we needed an old-fashioned collage-a-thon sooner, rather than later. And the weekend that works is Aug 20-22. Ducky and I are hosting our "CAT" starting at 12:00 noon on Friday Aug 20, and we'll play through Sunday night at 11:59.

    This is the getting-us-ready thread, we'll post the "official thread a few days before we start.

    The only requirement for participating and posting your art to the thread is to have at least one "collaged" item on your art.

    ATC's, chunky pages, rollos, bookmarks, inchies, twinchies... whatever you want to make as long as it has at least one collage item.

    Come play, or just visit and enjoy the eye candy.

    I'm starting to work on some backgrounds and have a pile of images to cut out...

    What are you doing to get ready?

    I can collage 4x4's a lot better than I can do 2.5X3.5 - do you think it's a mental block?

    Janjo33, it could be. LOL! It took me a long time to be able to move from 2.5 x 3.5 to a 4x4.

    I think I can play then. At least if my head doesn't decide something else and give me a migraine.

    Sniisk, I hope your migraines go away. They are no fun. I haven't had one in years, thank heavens, but know how awful they can be.

    I've been playing with house shaped Halloween chunky pages... in preparation for a class I'll be teaching at the store. So those are on my list.

    Does anyone else misplace images? I was sure I had a folder with Halloween images in it and danged if I can find it. LOL!

    I'll be working through that weekend (and every weekend, for the next month or two, until I'm laid off), but the eye candy and chatter will give me something to look forward to when I get home!

    That will be the first weekend that the students are back at school, but count me in. However, I am lousy at collage. I glued my fingers together the last time I tried

    That's a good idea for some, but I get too confused when I try to combine two weekends together.
