    G-3, The Creative Palette Journal Group - last shipping September 1, 2008

    Okay ladies - this will be our official home for the next 5-6 months.

    There aren't too many rules here, just a few:
    - all spreads need to be 8x8" (most of us have an album and we want them to fit);
    - all spreads need to be handdrawn/painted in some way
    - interpretation of theme is up to the artist, when in doubt - ask the received;
    - check in to the thread once a week minimum to stay in touch and report progress;
    - report in the thread when you have send or received art from one of the others;
    - report timely when you will be late sending a spread; and
    - for any questions - just PM me or put your question in the thread.

    Posh, never worry. I just like scenes from Ireland and sheep in general. What is your question?

    Well I was just wondering how life like the scene/sheeps had to be? You might not guess my blobs are sheep!!

    Welcome to our new home FF... can't wait to see your scarecrow(s)!
    As for the flat pages - yes, I prefer flat otherwise they might not fit into my (tight) album - but that'll be in 3 months time

    oh yes, and does side by side mean the picture should cover two 8x8's as a continuous story?

    pastels come under hand-drawn as far as I'm concerned we can use fibre pens, charcoal, prismas, oil, acrylic, watercolour and no doubt other painting/drawing materials that I don't even know of! Anyway if thats not the case I'm in mega trouble!!
    Been playing with prismacolor fibre pens tonight!! When the request was for scarecrows and sunflowers I hope these pictures are the right type of thing!

    FF is right - all the techniques she mentions are available.... I just love fibre pens - marvellous colors!! And how I love your pictures... they're just so much fun.

    As for the Venician Carnival, lilbad... just google in the pictures-option on Carnival of Venice and you'll find a lot of pictures showing the colorful festival masks as an example... and characters from the Italian Commedia del Arte are just great too (Colombine, Harlequine, Pierrot - to mention the three most famous).

    I'm pants at drawing and joined as a way to stop me avoiding it and get the practise in and Ireland is so lovely, I've only visited Northern Ireland and Dublin, but plan to go back. Have you ever been? I'm playing around with a few ideas, my sheep bum looks good!!

    Yes, went there in 2004 with another friend on this site. I have been enamored ever since and alas, left my heart there. That's where I got hooked on sheep!!
