    Welcome, Kynara! Hope you join! If you join an open media group, you would be free to hand-draw instead of collage if you didn't want to print out images

    I love your theme for group 4, CastleQueen5! Frosted Flakes was my Granddad's favourite cereal. He had dementia for most of the time that I knew him, but he always insisted on Frosted Flakes. My Mom tried to get him to switch to the store brand because it was slightly less sugary and a few dollars cheaper. The store brand had a polar bear instead of Tony the tiger and even though his dementia was bad, as soon as Granddad saw the polar bear he knew it was the wrong brand!

    In the last PAT, I got a cat card from.?? Need more coffee before I can answer from who...

    it was an awesome card but I think it was made on a Frosted flakes box, so that the Tony the tiger could shine through. And the word GREAT was added, and there was another cat much more obvious.

    That got me thinking about how much I loved Tony the Tiger, and I remember that is what I wanted to be when I grew up. I had no clue that, that was not possible.

    This may be a dumb question, but what is the difference between the groups open media versus collage/mixed media?

    collage/mixed media has to be just that

    open media can include digital or handdrawn/handpainted cards

    What Kynara said ^ I had a separate group for collage/mixed media because I know that some APC collectors on our site don't like to receive hand-drawn or digital APCs, but I wanted to give people the opportunity to use other media if they wanted to. That being said, if anyone does hand-drawn or digital, the card still has to be mounted on a real playing card.
