    ARTISTIC LICENSE CJ ~ HOST nettyb ~ FULL

    This thread has been automatically created, because the original thread had over 250 posts.

    The original thread was located HERE.

    The first post was....

    After deciding to take a break fom swaps for a wee while to catch up with things - I seem to have an idea brewing which I think would work better as a CJ than a swap. It all started when I created a CJ entry for the Mixed Media Masterpieces CJ. I decided after much pondering to do two names which mean a lot to me and than I love and it got me thinking.
    You can see the results in my Gallery or on my newly formed Blog and it'll give you a better idea of what I mean.

    My idea involves choosing your favourite artist ie Van Gough, Lowry or a more modern artist, favourite painting Sunflowers, the Mona Lisa, the Scream, the Kiss etc, favourite genre of art ie The Pre-Raphailites, Impressionists etc and each do your take on the subject.

    I have been in a couple of CJs and swaps where a UKSer has chosen a particular genre (pange did the Pre-Raphalites) or a particular piece of art (new2this chose Klimt's the kiss). In pange's we each chose a particular painting and did our interpretation of it. On new2this's jigsaw we each did a particular section of the painting so when it was all put together it represented the entire Klimt's kiss. I absolutely loved doing both of these and having just completed my DLO's for the other CJ I would love to do another based on this theme.

    The CJ itself does not necessarily have to be of a book form. If you wanted to use them as a wall decoration and just send blank Canvases thats fine.

    I plan to have the first posting as 30th August with a four weekly posting last day of every month - this gives us all time to ponder which artist, genre or pieces of art you wish everyone to use. I'll do a group of nine which makes it easier if anyone is considering doing the wall decoration - nine canvases will fit together really well

    I'm hoping that eight others have a mutual appreciation of art in every form and will join me on this CJ.

    To sign up you will need to have completed at least one circle journal previously, not exceed the “3 at a time” rule by taking this one on, and have positive trader ratings only.

    Please keep your book/canvas fairly small so it is not too expensive to post – no larger than 8” x 8”
    Please post all CJs via recorded and make sure to retain proof of posting until you have confirmation that it has been received. The CJs should be posted in a strong padded envelope - one that can survive the trials of RM for the best part of a year - it is also helpful to put your CJ in a plastic bag in case the envelope gets wet.

    I've started working on my Vincent Gachaga inspired piece, enjoying it!

    Leanie, could I ask, where did you get these watercolour boards from? I really like them, might buy a few for myself...

    I got them from the works, think it was a pack of 10 or 12 for 2.99 or something - great for stamping on instead of canvas aren't they?

    Flo, that's cool! x

    Yes I expect they would be good for stamping, I think my other half has a Works near him, will have to ask him to get me some.

    Glad you liked what I did and thank you Lou too

    Gorgeous page, Flo. I agree about the "canvas/board" ... it looks very versatile and a great size.
