    Having a smaller group does influence the pages done per person, or left blank to fill in yourself or through 1:1 trades. If the group wanted to divide the pages equally, 30 divided by 8 players is 3.75 pages. Everyone could do a 4 page spread, or a couple could opt for just 3 since there's not quite enough pages for everyone to do 4. Or everyone could still do 3, but the book owner would have more freedom to decorate and establish the theme at the beginning of the book, and then a couple pages to wrap it up at the end.

    I do have some sad news, theweavershand will not be joining us for this round. There is one person who pm'd me saying she was interested in joining, though I wasn't sure if you all wanted to keep the group small or what. It sounds like finding a replacement is preferable?

    I've already done four pages at the front, but if another player joins, the last person in the rotation could always add a page that flips up or down. Someone did that very thing in my last moley, adding both up and down pages that folded out and allowed him more vertical "real estate" - with the theme - Elemental Dragons - using the vertical space meant a duel of dragons which is TOO COOL.

    The way the front pages have worked in all my moleys is thusly, and please correct me if any of this is NOT a part of your vision, Kristin:
    The Inside front cover and the next page are for owner info, the book's route plan, and any introductory/instructional info on the book's theme.
    The next three pages are the owner's spread on their own theme.

    Thinking that I had fewer players, I did four pages for a spread, which is why I suggested the fold out plan in my previous note here.

    That sounds right Els, the first 2 pages of the book (the ones that aren't the fold out pages) are usually for the player list and theme description. But of course the layout is ultimately up to the owner's whimsy.

    I have mine already too. So since this is my first moley, I will be using the above few notes to start my moley and if this changes please not it. Thank you Els and Kristin for your experience in this.
    no weavershand = but I am sure we will have cherish-able books anyway!

    Keep in mind everyone that there is a withdraw date of 05/15 - you might not want to finalize your player list in your book until that date has past in case anyone drops out.

    I'm also going to invite ScrapPea to replace theweavershand's spot since she was interesting in joining.

    Black'n White and Blue Abstract/Zentangles.

    That is going to be my theme, pretty simple really but I like it.

    Whoa, I can picture a 6 foot long zentangle. That's going to be an amazing book when it's done.

    THEME: I've decided on MESSENGERS & MESSAGES as my theme. The inspiration for my theme comes from the 2000 film version of Hamlet where the Messenger character was replaced by a fax machine! I love creative interpretation of the ordinary. So people can be messengers, anything can be messenger...

    Think posties, pigeons, angels, newsies, telegraph, typewriters, pony express, gossips, billboards, tv, taggers, etc.
    ~anything that delivers a message and the messages they might be conveying... [warnings, advice, bold, funny, poignant, hidden messages, quotes, etc. - lots of possibilities]



    MEDIUM: any

    STYLE: any

    DOs: OVERLAPPING - I need it!!! It doesn't have to be a lot - I want a little bit of you spilling over to the next panel so there is some flow, some connection to each other - I really don't like abrupt endings, because they're so, well, brusque! There are great examples on the May 2nd & April 3rd posts here http://moleskinex81.blogspot.com/

    tip-ins, doors, windows, pockets, etc. that's all ok;

    DON'Ts: no verticals please - I don't mind if a portion is less than horizontal, but I really don't want to have to turn the wholey moley on its end to see your spread, so horizontal flows will make my toes curl, after my socks have been knocked off :~]

    Still stumped? Think storks, singing telegrams, Burma Shave signs, bottles, town criers, license plates, fortune cookies, tea leaves, skywriters, I have more ideas if none of these conjure up anything.

    will add/edit here if anything else comes to mind

    oh, I think I've got my theme: Sanctuary.

    And any way you chose to interpret or portray it is good for me. Quasimodo, Logan's Run, or a tired woman having a bath... anything you feel fits.

    MEDIUM: any

    STYLE: any

    DOs: tip-ins, doors, windows, pockets, etc. that's all ok;

    DON'Ts: no verticals please (as per jazzie's note)

    Love the moley themes guys!
    Jazzie that messager theme is timed perfectly! I just acquired a vintage typewriter from a flea market and it has been kept in beautiful working order, ribbon and all! It has a lovely metal suitcase with barely a scratch on it too!
    1orange I had an immediate vision when I read the word "Sanctuary", meaningful word.
    I am going to make some notes today and start inching toward my moley in a serious manner.
