    G-13 WET & WILD WATERCOLORISTS (closed)

    Here we are in our new home ladies. I will post our mailing schedule when we have everyone on board. We will begin mailing our first pages with a due date of April 15, 2009 and after that by the 15th of the month for the next six months. Of course one can always mail early and ahead. When our participant list is complete we will mail starting at our name and mailing to the name below us and so on working down this list. Pages will be side-by-side and all watercolor mediums and pens are acceptable.
    Looking forward to this new venture.
    Please post to this thread your theme, page sizes and PM me your mailing address so I can compile a mailing list.
    So glad to have a new start.

    Theme: living flowers (wild or cultivated) I love to see flowers in the ground, growing toward the sun. Although I do sometimes pick them and put them in a vase on the table, I love them most alive and growing. I love buttercups, columbine, delphinium, foxglove, iris and just about any flower that I can think of!
    Size: 8" X 8"

    Thanks Pam, that is my love too.
    I sent a invitation PM to pamelacolors, she has not responded.
    Haven't heard from terryart either.
    Here is my theme,
    I would like city-scapes that include some natural life in them and they can be playful, whimsical, traditional or blaah.
    My page size is 6X6.

    Pam your timing is not the best. Pat had posted to Water Wizard thread that she would be traveling until Mar. 20. I have pm'd Terryart and she has not responded, very unusual for her so I'm thinking she is on a journey too. Also pm'd Lil and I'm sure she will respond soon. That would give you Lil and myself pages to work on. Wish I could help you out a little better.

    Theme & Size

    Theme: Artist's Choice
    Size: 4x4 (I'm going small, only because I have a hand made empty Journal that I can put this size page in.)

    I have a question, since this is my first: Are the journal pages hand painted/drawn, etc. only or is it okay to add some collage type work to the journal page?

    Pam, you found us, I just responded to your PM. Some have done collage but usually it is hand painted collage no purchased materials.
    Pam, welcome to this group, You will enjoy it I'm sure it is a friendly group.
    As soon as everyone checks in I will compile a mailing and rotation schedule.
    Hang in there with us as we organize.

    So? Is PamelasColors my person? Just wondering.

    Pam, I understand this is a water media journal page group. Ink may be used. Watercolors or watercolor pencils may be used. That was the way it was way back in round one. Am I right, Jan?

    You are right Pamitha, she asked about collage and there have been some who did some watercolor collage to enhance the painting. It does need to be origianl art work for the collage. Pam pick one to start on and I will set up the rotating schedule after you decide.
    Lil, you decide if Ireland is your thing go for it. Glad you are back.

    question

    Hi, its the Newbee again. I notice our list includes the size info and says "side by side", does this mean I am doing two pages of the same size for each individual or just one page at the requested size? ~pamela
