    Okay, I'm going to join! Thank you for the encouragement, Miss M and kentuckydakota. And I hope you join too, miss! I love your artwork.

    I still need to purchase the actually Moley sketchbook but I'll get on that today. I'm pretty sure I can't find one locally so I'll have to order it. Hopefully it will get to me quickly.

    I'll come back in a bit with my theme, I'm still deciding that. Should I PM you my contact info, kentuckydakota?

    Thanks!

    Woot! So glad you jumped in! I got your contact info so you're all set. Let me know your theme when you get that figured out.
    I've had good results buying my books from Amazon, though hit and miss when I purchase from Amazon sellers (people selling on Amazon). Those are usually coming from overseas and take awhile if they ever arrive. Most art stores, if they don't carry this book, can order it.

    I have chosen my theme and followed the format from the first page. Here goes:

    Theme: Illustrated Quotes

    What quote is meaningful to you? What words resonate with your soul? Maybe it’s a quote from Buddha, part of a poem, a line or two from a song, a passage from the Bible, or an anecdote from your own life. Please illustrate your favorite quote(s) either by writing the words in an artistic manner or using imagery to illustrate the meaning.

    DO: Please include your quote and source (if known) on your page somewhere. You can illustrate one, two or three quotes (one per page) if you wish. And please be artistic.

    DON’T: Please no profanity or swear words. No plain handwritten quotes without a background or art.

    MEDIA: I prefer HD/HP but mixed media/collage of your own art, nicely done, is fine, too.

    Does this work?

    I'm still torn! I did this once before, and I loved the experience, plus this looks like a great roster of artists! But I have my last semester of grad school in the summer/ fall, and the time I get to spend on art drops off tremendously then, so I'm not sure I should commit myself... Argh! I really want to, though.

    Yeah, school had a habit of doing that! Would love to have your art in my moley, but I don't want to pressure you. There will be more moley threads!

    Aw, darn those school obligations, always getting in the way of the important stuff, lol! If you decide you can fit it in, Miss, we'd love to have you, but we understand if there just isn't time.

    Y,es I remember being so serious about school I had to choose it over my boyfriend. He's gone but the degree is still with me and now I have a little art time between kids school.

    My Moley is ordered and I am thinking of a theme. I have not tried calligraphy yet moonrose but sure do have supplies around here somewhere. Even cursive is becoming a lost art
    They taught a little to my fourth graders last year. One still writes in cursive the other prefers computer homework.

    Ok here goes

    Theme : Lucy in the sky with diamonds

    I am a kid of the Beatles era and for this theme let your imagination change like a kaleidoscope as we finally find out what Lucy really looks like, who got her those diamonds and why in the heck is she in the sky. If you don't know the song then look up the lyrics and if you do I hope you sing along.

    Do: tell a story and get familiar with the lyrics as Lucy sounds like one far out chick that digs rocks, colors, flys ,and knows the Fab Four. Dig it?

    Don'ts: no need to be plain or shy. I expect to hallucinate on the full pages of color !

    Media: love love HD/HP. If not just give it your best man.

    Right on!
    sweet sweet summertime

    Wow, that's the 2nd reference to Beatles lyrics as a theme I've heard of in this swap- lol!
    You are not alone in your love of the fab 4. Sounds like a psychedelic, fun theme.

    How funny! I came *this* close to having "Lyrics from the Beatles" as being my theme for my moley! I'm loving your theme, iridescent888 - can't wait to depict "cellophane flowers of yellow and green..."

    I'm so glad there are other people new to Moley swaps. I was a bit worried that I'd be the only one.

    I love the themes that people have posted so far. I have a theme idea; I'm just trying to put it into the right words before I post.
