Welcome to play Donna and welcome to lurk (and hopefully play) CQ5!

The monochromatic theme really interests me. I like the way art like that looks.

trini70
03-19-2021, 09:50 AM
I know what you mean CQ5. Mono is what I enjoy making more than anything else. And naturally, I like getting them in return. There just aren't very many mono cards made for trade here. That's why sometimes when I do a PAT instead of a theme I pick colors for each player to make me.

Glad to have you join us mrubyjean!

Hope you're able to join in zhouzhou. Nanvan, I've made a lot of mono atcs w/out images. I do have a nearly endless supply of scrapbook paper and cardstock though.

Very beautiful art in the thread!
I am lurking with intent. I have a few in process hoping they are mono-colored enough. Is mono-colored a word? Spell checker seems to take it.

trini70
04-07-2021, 04:08 PM
Oh Lorna, I hope your moos work out and you're able to join in.

What is a MOO?

A moo is just like a smaller atc, they're 1"x2 3/4". For me they're so fun to make because they're more challenging, due to the size. The origin of the name is, quite honestly, more in depth than I feel like going into. You should be able to find some info in the FAQs or even by checking out some of the archived moo swaps. I know it's been discussed in some of those threads as well.

Would love to have you join in!

I'm surprised that more folks haven't signed up. I think I'll send some invites. If anyone playing knows someone that might be interested, feel free let them know about this swap.

I dont think many of us remember to look in the mail art swap area, just the OPEN swaps area.

Lurking... I do love monochrome but I have to get a couple other swaps done first!

thank you for the invite
ordinarily i would like to do a moo swap
but right now i am not joining any swaps until i do some more purge of my art supplies and clean up my space
i sent first load to the thrift store last week
i have to get it out of the house or i get second thoughts and retrieve items
trying to make a second pile of purge this weekend

i would suggest that you make some moos and post them in the gallery to draw attention to this swap

trini70
04-16-2021, 10:05 AM
JavaZarf, you're braver than me. I don't think I have what it takes, right now anyway, to start purging. Lord knows I could stand to though. Good on you for taking on the challenge. Hope to see you next time.

I haven't got my MOOs made yet but a couple other players have posted theirs.

Great idea JavaZarf. Wish I could have a peek at your purged items - one person's trash is another's treasure! :-)

My MOOs will be in the mail tomorrow. I hope that you don't mind that they are all the same tangle - I think that it does monochrome really nicely.
On the orange MOO the pale colour is actually neon orange but my scanner doesn't like neon colours :(

I have included a 2nd green and blue MOO for our Host to choose.

trini70
04-18-2021, 09:46 AM
Welcome prex!

Donna, what a great idea to do tangles.

CastleQueen5
04-19-2021, 09:03 PM
I got my moos done, so you can add them to the list. I made a second Red Java for the hostess, It has HOSTESS written on the back pretty big.

I hope you all find these to your liking.

nanvan
04-19-2021, 09:25 PM
Love your moos CQ! I think my favorite is the blue with the postage stamp, but the purple really stands out for me too - all are great!

I haven't mailed yet even though I have the address. I am looking for my good stapler.

But I have been playing over in the art-a-thon. Today is the last day. Sniisk, gives us a list of tasks worth points, and we create based on the list. I combined 3 tasks into this one moo which is limit.

The tasks were Bee, and a Letter and a flower. It is up for trade. I have some other moos in my gallery too.
