I am another one that doesn't put a whole lot on the starter as I want the next two artists to have some room to move but like CQ5 said; do what you think is best/fair. Some artists like to be the second artist & then some like being the third artist best; it just depends on who gets them (randomly that is) Just my 2 cents=)

Thank you CQ and ferretgirl for the advice. I did read the rules, but now I know that adding just one item to the background is enough, and desirable.

This does sound fun. And of course, you could always just stick two kinds of paper to card stock rather than use double sided paper, which would solve that problem.

I'm definitely going to play with "twinsets" sometime soon,
I think

And you made 2 sets the same, but sent each set to 2 different players. The persons you sent them to, decided which side of the paper to decorate. They also had to stick on your address labels on what was the backside. Since the back was not determined yet, the addresses were not attached.

So the experiment was to see which side was chosen by the 2 players and how differently the 2 sets came back to you.

The only down side I saw was that the paper was paper, and not as thick as card stock. or chip board.

It was fun. The cards came out great.

Others have said this, too, but it really varies a lot. We are pretty flexible and can adapt to almost any level of starter. A general rule of thumb would be that the simpler you start with, the more people are likely to add to it - and also, the simpler the starter, the less likely you are to be able to predict what direction it will go in!

Here's a selection of starters which I've made fairly recently, just for interest...

I think these lovely peeps already got this answered!

You can really do anything you want to as it is 3 artists working on a small area. With this set that I completed the bowling ball and pins were not glued down when they arrived - I have seen this done before. So you can technically just make things separatly and not even glue anything down at all. Just send in bits along with empty cards and leave it to Player 2 to decide what they shall do with the works.
I think this works if you really want something on there that usually happens in step 2 or the last step but as Artist 1 you might not get a chance to add something so by sending those pieces unglued you are giving everyone a hint on wanting those things added at some point.

Starter does not exactly mean you are always working on a background and passing it on - do not let that stop you! Be creative....

Reminds me that I want to start a set this way now. I'll be making some inchies and 0.5"x0.5" sized painted things for a set... I need to get to work on these asap before I forget the theme.

Okay everyone! I am sending out "CRRR 08 - Bee Sets" to:
mrubyjean
CastleQueen5
katelnorth
ferretgirl
xstitcher


I tried the double set thing here so there are 2 sets in blue and 2 in yellow. I made another different colored set as well that I am mailing and the other half of it waiting here for ChronicReader most likely

Would ChronicReader want a bee set as well? That would be the last set.


This should cover me for some time so that I can prepare for the Buddy Card a-thon.
BluSkyHare - you should check out the marathon as our goal there is to make starter sets only (2 matching cards) in HD/HP and Mixed Media. We would do the trading after the marathon on the official thread (found in my signature).

That is another thing, BlueSkyHare, not all the starters need to look exactly alike, either.

Great starters, katel!!

I will look through the cancelled stamps I have saved and see if I have any. If I do you are welcome to them. Heck if you want all the stamps I have you can have them!!
