    I'd love to have a Zetti-land (think Wonderland) journal! Animals, people, flowers, etc. and their homes.

    Art2Live has a wonderful Zetti tute here: http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/show...=17351&page=13 so be sure to check it out.

    Is it okay to prep all the accordion with gesso ahead of time? Save everyone that first step and make sure the gesso part is consistent....

    catscradle - I guess you could - even if it's collaged I guess gesso would be cool - I didn't gesso any pages except when I was using it as a design element

    (rubberstamp with gesso then paint over it)

    Zetti is a fav of mine which I've not played with in a while - so that will be fun


    I don't know what theme to go with yet - so many ideas hard to pin it down......

    Oh I think I just found my theme!

    inspiring women in history

    doesn't have to be a famous women per say - I've been looking up cowgirls for a art thing for my SIL and I'm just so impressed with how much they achieved with so much in their way.

    Yipee! I will order my book tonight. I was checking out the link already.

    I will email you my info for the list.

    I would like my theme to be all about nature - plants, flowers, birds, bird nests, insects, butterflies -- you get the idea.

    You're all over achievers. I'm still trying to decide on a theme. Right now I'm trying to choose between primitive folk art girls, royalty, or children's classics (think Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Heidi, Anne of Green Gables. . .etc.) Hmmm. . .what to do, what to do?

    Still lurking. I have a moley already, but I am so paranoid about messing up someone else's journal.

    Lurking as well...I should have 25 i trader within the next week. This sounds like an awesome experience and journey. I'm just worried that this might be too soon time wise..If it is mid February on, I can do it...I'll keep lurking!

    My theme, I think, would be goddesses or sexy fairies...

    Ok, I really want in! I looked at the gallery and just love the space to work in the care that goes into these. I'll have the time and commitment by February.

    I'm sure I will have the 25 required points, as I just sent in 2 swaps on time. Do you want to wait before adding me to the list until it actually shows up, or can I get in now?

    I am sure I want my theme to be goddesses.

    Please change my theme to Artist's Choice, GG. I think that way people can make what they are comfortable with and it will reflect their style.
    Make it a good day, or not....the choice is yours!

    Started my outer cover today; got the first two coats of gesso over the black. Haven't decided on the color for the outside, but I'm leaning toward a purple color.

    Still gotta do the first three pages and get the neighborhood started. Would it be too much to ask for a small face shot of each person to be added to the travel log? Just add your image when you get the journal.

    I think I'm gonna let everyone do their own thing with the prep work on the accordion pages. I thought about it, and want the Zetti to be all from each artist. If you don't have gesso, it's not that big a deal to me.
