    Nice theme's so far! I'm already inspired
    I may still change my theme, but I think I'll probably end up "going with it"
    I was thinking about this all evening - my fav tends to change so when your journal comes round to me it'll be 'One of my favourite artists!'

    Ok. I've got it.
    Women of myth & legend - please include her name/the legend title somewhere, even if tiny.

    Any medium that you're happy working with

    This can be interpreted any way you feel inclined, I know some people aren't happy with figure work so you don't actually have to draw a person!

    Ooh, it is starting ...., suddenly I get all nervous
    My theme will be something with flowers, I have to think a little bit more - but you should know that I love faded flowers, seedcases and things like that.
    Hm, maybe, "flowers forgotten in the corner of your garden" - and if you don't have a real garden, well that opens for a lot of interesting interpretations....

    I have to go to order my moleskin now!

    OK...I'm ready to begin my very first Moley adventure...Excitement....I am choosing Brightly colored Noah's Ark....I would like to keep it mostly handdrawn but you can incorporate some collage elements...

    I still need to locate a book...

    I have a question.....We are looking to purchase a house and might be moving within the next 6 months...will this be a problem? I will be able to let you know well in advance of the new addy..is this OK?

    This is going to be a challenge
    I just ordered 2 Moleskins (just in case...) and they will arrive in good time I hope.

    You who have done moley groups before, are there anything a newbie need to think extra about ...?

    Tipulida - They moley exchanges are great fun. I'd suggest looking at some of the other moleys that the other groups did. I'm always inspired by the creativity!

    will everyone check the first posting please and let me know if there were any special instructions that I forgot to add with your theme choice. (Ie. Collage only, hand-drawn, nothing green, etc)

    Ugh, looks like I am the last one without a theme. Okay, I have two favorite all time themes...dark fairy tales and creepy carnivals/circus'. Since Penlowe is already doing fairy tales, I'm going to go with the creepy carnival theme.

    Please allow me to go into some detail. I love bright and colorful whimsical art. My very favorite artist is grrrdjules. I'm not joking. She's my favorite; I love her. Here is a card she made for my Creepy Carnival/Scary Circus swap last year:


    When I say that I want creepy carnival I really mean is eerie. So things look bright and colorful and whimsical, but there is something lurking beneath the surface. The type of thing that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand on end.

    Allow me to give another example from Juli. This is her layout for Cindyjob's dark fairytale moley:

    See what I mean? It's bright and colorful, but still somewhat terrifying. Those trees are beautiful blues and purples and pinks, but they still look ominous. And there is something lurking in the forest...you can see it amongst the trees. Those kids are in serious trouble and you know it.

    Anyway, please feel free to be more explicit...branch slightly beyond eerie and in to macabre, if you like. A cheerful looking clown with dead eyes and a hidden butcher knife? Great, as long as it looks whimsical. A troupe of ghosts trapped in the circus and forced perform every night? Terrific...actually, I like that idea so much I may use it on my three page layout!

    Feel free to use brighter/bolder colors than Juli does. I'm not asking anyone to try to be Juli; I really want to see your style. I was just trying to use her examples to describe the the "bright, whimsical" aspect I'm looking for.

    Anyway, after all that yammering, let me sum it up with my title: "Under the Big Top: A Colorful, Whimsical Creepy Carnival/Scary Circus"

    I ordered them Monday. They say they won't be delivered until between Oct 12-23, so I guess that means they are still on backorder.
