    Cool It's the Official Crow/Raven/Blackbird a-thon Sept 12!!!

    EDIT: We've gone nuts and it's now "Make some Black Bird Art Week - through Sept 19"

    If anyone has the inspiration to make more black bird art, just post it in your gallery and notify us here so we can all admire and possibly trade. You can post your art here too if you want. I'll be gone this afternoon through Friday evening, but I'm sure you can all take care of each other while I'm away.
    -----------------------------------------------------------

    By popular demand, we are holding a one day Crow/Raven/Blackbird a-thon all day Sunday September 12.

    We're starting 12:00am Sunday Sept 12 (your time zone) and going to 11:59pm Sunday Sept 12 (your time zone). So you need to stay up late Saturday night, start at midnight and go 24 hours until midnight Sunday. Well okay, you can get some sleep in there if you absolutely must.

    All you need to do to participate is create some Crow/Raven/Blackbird themed art. It can be ATC's, 4x4 pages (chunky or not) inchies, twinchies, journal pages... whatever art strikes you on the theme.

    And it's whatever media you choose: hand drawn, painted, collage, mixed media...

    Make your art, post to the thread (or tell us it's in your gallery) make trades, have fun!

    The only requirement is that there is a blackbird somewhere on your art.




    If you wish to make a trade, please pm to make arrangements. Please DO NOT post to the thread, it makes it too confusing.


    Compliments are cool, and remember you can do it by clicking the "you rock" button too!


    Once you make a trade, please mail within 2 weeks. If you are running late, COMMUNICATE!


    Now who's ready to create some blackbird art?

    I've been busily cutting out crow images and prepping backgrounds for the last two weeks - I'm so excited! What a perfect theme!

    I am scouring my hard drive for black birds. There are a few that seem to be hiding! Today I'll try printing the birds on different papers and maybe some tissue. I may not be able to post until after dinner tomorrow, but should be able to do some cutting and pasting throughout the day.

    Got some things prepped today. I'm usually sloooooow in the mornings but hopefully I can make up for it in the afternoon. Can't wait to see how our flock of birdies come together tomorrow!
