    Slightly panicing here myself - after last nights shock (hubby choked on his food in a restaurant and almost died) and a bad night (no sleep, reliving the horror scene) everything looks like impossible to me right now. I'm up for 'The Deep' but can't even get started... oh well, maybe a good night of sleep will do miracles and tomorrow everything looks clear (keeping fingers crossed).

    Nicky,
    Just want to make sure I have the correct paper before I start. Just need a yes or no: I can cut 8 x 8 pieces of regualr watercolor paper and it will be appropriate. Is that right? I don't need to allow for album holes, right? Also, no one answered whether they should be a continuous picture or two separate ones. Thanks. I am excited to start. lil

    Lil, I'm planning on doing 2 different pictures, rather than one long one, but now you mention it, that sounds good too, I think you can do your own thing re this.

    And I'm using 8x8 watercolour paper.

    Hope this helps

    Any kind of paper is fine lilbad - I have an album with protective sheets so no holes are needed.... I love continuous pictures but if two separate ones is better for you, I don't mind.

    Thanks for asking Posh - hubby is doing fine now... we were just in shock at the thought of how fast something like this can happen.

    Happy crafting girls - hope to have some time to do a bit of drawing myself this weekend

    Thanks for the info. Sorry to hear about your dh's accident. That must have been horrifying! As my son told me when he was young and someont choked: "Quick, Mom, the Heimlick Remover!" I am a nurse, u see, and he was thinking of the Heimlick Manuver!!

    hahaha - not a strange mix-up... all you think about when someone is choking is how to REMOVE the obstacle. Luckily there was a lady in the restaurant who knew exactly how to apply the Heimlick - We've stopped thinking about what would have happened if she had not been there

    Good - the last ATC I owe is on it's way so now I have time to start on my journal page commitment. Will start to do some research on Deep - for me the the most difficult theme in the list!

    Hi, I'm home...just posting to say that I am deep into goddesses at the moment...drawing for detephoto's spread...leaning toward the celtic godessess at the moment...they had such great red hair! [for those of you who know me, know I collect red head art]. Anyway, having a great time and watercoloring away! I am a little concerned about the paper weight...watercolor paper is a bit heavy, but it needs to be...should fit ok into journal, but just thought I would mention this...

    Good morning all,
    I have done my research and drawings. Now, have to decide between acrylics or watercolor. Venetian Carnival deserves a lot of color, and watercolors seem so washed out some times. Nicky, are u opposed to embelishments?
    Hope all are well and progressing!

    I just need to put a backing onto the pages for Poshscot, mainly due to the fact that the darn colours bled through!! Once I've done that I'll post them out!

    Hi Lilbad - not too keen on embelishments myself since the pages will go in an album and the embelishments might be damages or might damage other drawings, but just see what you can do, okay?

    My goodness - you're all going so fast! I've got some pretty 'vague' ideas and haven't had time to start - tonight we've got a theater show to attend and tomorrow evening we're out too. Hope to have a chance during the weekend (next weekend will be lost because of concert visits too)... argh - if only a day had more than 24 hours!

    surfacing ...

    hey guys --
    sorry i haven't posted as of yet. i do online videography for a fairly large newspaper in montana's capital city, and over the last week we've been covering campaign events from bill and hillary clinton and barack obama. i put in my 80 hours of time allotted for two weeks in about four days!!
    am anxious to have a string of days off this weekend to get cracking on my pages
    and terryart -- RED HAIR!! yay! unfortunately my natural hair color is gray/dishwater blond, so i've been dying my hair red for so long my family even thinks i'm a natural redhead i'm SOO glad that's the direction you took, and i can't wait to see the pages!
    happy creating,
    amanda (detephoto)
