    G-14 CJ - Automatic Impression - FULL

    Thanks. Our circle journal is now full and here are our 6 players. Myself included.

    In this thread you will find all the information you need to know about our members, themes and over the next 5 months how partners are assigned.

    If you have any questions please be sure to ask.. Im here to help. Thanks for joining me on this new adventure and I hope you all have fun with making your creative pages.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Our group members -

    Me - Acacia.rose - Theme LONDON. I was born and raised in England london and suffolk being places I know well and where I have family. I am now living in the USA with my husband and his job in the usaf and I would like to be reminded of home. Your interpretation goes of this theme. Maybe you like big ben, london eye, buckingham palace, the red phone boxes, or the guards that stand outside buckingham palace, maybe its the shopping found in london. hand drawn, mixed media , painted whatever your preference. Show me what london is/looks like from your view !!

    Knesi07 - Theme beautiful birds. since spring has arrived and i'm seeing little bits of life outdoors again, i thought this would be an inspirational theme. the birds can be represented as found in nature, whimsical, image transfer, hand drawn, mixed media, bright and colorful or monochromatic ...whatever your preference. i also like either one word to go with, or a quote about birds, nature, spring, rebirth....

    Gee- Completely Colorful LOVE. I would like to get hand-painted or hand-drawn pages. Love: where do you feel it, how do you feel it, what are the signs of it? I would like to have some words on it, short poem is ok. It can be all abstract - colors and lines showing the expression of love. It can be a doggy being loved - expressions of love are everywhere - look around, feel... Life is about loving and being loved, isn't it?

    Jonquil - the themes already are fabulous. I would like my theme to be Vintage Children - cute, serious, portraits, with wings - whatever takes your fancy. Collage, mixed media, fabric whatever takes your fancy and inspires you

    eggstudio - I'd love to have one on Silent Screen Stars this is a great site with cool images http://www.silentladies.com/Ladies.html
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Information you should know

    Any chosen theme – BUT PAGE SIZE IS 4 (w) X 8 ( L) ---- AS IF YOU PUT TWO 4X4 PAGES TOGETHER SIDEWAYS
    ( or landscape format) I just thought it would be really neat to have a book that is this particular shape/size. You will leave about a 1 inch gap inward on the left hand side to allow for binding. Make the pages chunky is allowed by adding fibre, ribbon etc on all sides apart from the left ( because this is the side used to bind complete book once pages have been collected)

    You can decorate both sides of the page, or if you choose to only decorate the front then the back page must still be finished off neatly with contact information of person that made the page. Back sides of pages will still be seen when they are flipped over.

    Always do your best work and send a good quality page thats had thought, time and effort in to making it.
    Any media /medium welcome.


    Mailing guidelines

    PLease see list of who you will mail to each month and please make sure all pages are mailed to your partner by the 7th of each month.

    Gee I am glad you are here and that you show great enthuasism. ( sp) many of the themes will also challenge me to as I am not too familiar with some.

    so i see for may you will be sending to jonquil... Do you have any ideas ? The vintage one for me is the one that i think will be the challenge the most.

    I did actually start on my vintage already and it's coming along pretty well! It will be my very first vintage and first children, and I am curious how I will put it all together!

    Lovely page~ I'm glad you posted, it really helps in see one done to know what I'm doing.
    I know you explained it in the text but I can grasp the concept much better with a visual.

    Thanks for your nice comment. Yes I think i learn alot better with pics . text is ok but for me pics are easier to understand.

    Knesi07 just wanted you to know that your page is on its way. No sense in keeping it here if it is already finished. I will more than likely make and send you another one before may 1st. That way your finished book will be extra chunky with a few more pages

    I finished my very first page. Jonquil, hope you like it! It's my very first page in CJ and it's the very first Vintage and Children page at all. It's totally out of my style, but I enjoyed stretching myself. Any feedback is appreciated, thanks!

    Gee are you going to chunky it up somehow.. by adding ribbons or fibres down the right hand side ? wasnt sure if you were or if you will leave it how it is.

    I wasn't planning, but I could. I will check with the Jonquil to see what she likes. Thanks for the advice.
