    G-20 Photography + Artist Interpretation Circle Journal Group! - Full

    Photography + Artist Interpretation Circle Journal Group Forming! OPEN FOR SIGN-UP

    There will be two - 8x8 (sturdy) journal pages with an original photo (minimum size is 4x6) attached on one page and then the artist's interpretation of the photo on the second page. For example, my partner's theme is "flowers;" therefore, I would take a photo of a flower and print it on a 5x7 photo paper and attach it to the first page. On the second page, I would then represent that photo/flower in a collage, drawing (realistic or whimsical), abstract, etc - using any type of media that I desired.

    Important Details to consider before you sign up!
    The circle journals are limited to 6 members (5 sign ups + me). Each of the players are required to have a minimum of 15+ itrader points and have completed at least 3 successful swaps.

    - These groups require a dedication of both time (5 months) and money (for shipping costs, for materials, etc). Please do not sign up if you are not sure you can provide both. It's not fair to the other participants.

    Each month you will have a partner and will mail directly to your partner on (or before) a pre-determined mail date. Each person will have 4 weeks to work on their 2 pages.

    Because these are treated the same as Pick-A-Themes (PAT) each person that completes a spread is entitled to a TRADER RATING. Likewise, if a person does not fulfill their obligation to their partner a Negative Rating is posted if one partner sends and is received, but never received a spread from their partner.

    When you sign up...
    * List your theme in the thread
    *PM me your contact details. Name, address, phone number, and an active email address.

    Please ask any questions BEFORE signing up.

    Participants
    1. Corrie - Rust, Grunge and Hardscapes (Think distressed, peeling paint, rust, old cars, etc.)
    2. Rachel - "In the City." Skyline pics, close-up pics, anything pics as long as the pic is taken in a city setting.
    3. NancyL - lighted candle ( may be on a birthday cake, part of an advent wreath, in a lantern, maybe in a luminary, on a Christmas tree, part of a Menorah....or whatever comes to your mind!)
    4. RockingBearRanch - Cottage Garden/Floral - Tiny quaint houses, picket fences, climbing roses, overgrown flowers, cobblestone walkways, etc. Or try a Pinterest search for 'cottage garden'


    Mailing Rotation - Please mail by the 15th of each month and update the thread. Please remember to check in once a week, too.

    I'm still thinking of a theme. I did put a little commercial for this CJ in one of my ATC photo swaps.

    Thanks for the extra "advertising," Nancy!

    Hi Mayaquilt. Yes, it would be 2-8"x8" tip in pages. I'm thinking of having the first mail date on the first of June. Let me know if this would work out for you.

    We need at least one more person to sign up. I can set it so it's just 4 players, if necessary... but of course, I'd love if we could find another 3.

    I have had a challenging year in that 4 people I have cared for have moved on. So I have been searching for upbeat themes and possibilities. I have also begun creating personal art journals. Journaling is also a great distraction from pain as I still have that going on....and eventually I will have to wean myself off of pain meds.

    Sounds like a hard year, Nancy. Yes, art journaling is VERY therapeutic. I know that it helped me get through many tough times. Trying to stay positive is the best thing that you can do!

    Question -
    Since we aren't really getting sign ups, do you just want to do the trades between the 3 of us or wait until another time.

    I know that Rachel just fell and broke her wrist, so I'm not sure how that is going to affect what all she can do.

    Thoughts/suggestions?

    I hate it when you get excited to host a particular idea/theme and it seems that all the excitement is only in you!
    I can go any way...wait until another time or do a trade between whoever.
