Sign up for the Weekly Inspirational Thread

Hi everyone.

There has been a thread, greeted much enthusiasm and agreement, to start a weekly Inspirational thread. This would be separate from the monthly challenge.

The idea is to post a group of photos (5 to 7), either from the image library here on WC or photos you've taken that others can use as an inspiration for sketching.

The week will be from Sunday to Saturday. The renderings are sketches, tangles, collages, or whatever based on the photos in your sketchbook/journal. As always, all media are welcome and encouraged. This will be a case of possibly double posting. One in the inspirational thread so all can see your version of the photos posted. You may also post it in your appropriate journal thread.

Please sign up for a week to help inspire your fellow art journal people. Just respond to this thread. You'll be starting a new thread for your week.

Rainy is going to start us off this first week, December 11 through December 17.

December 18 through December 24
December 25 through December 31 (you will be forgiven for posting Monday )
January 1 through January 7 (you will be forgiven for posting Monday )
January 8 through January 14
January 15 through January 21
January 22 through January 28
January 29 through February 4
February 5 through February 11
February 12 through February 18
February 19 through February 25
February 26 through March 3
March 4 through March 10
March 11 through March 17
March 18 through March 24
March 25 through March 31

That should be enough for now, to get us started.

Re: Sign up for the Weekly Inspirational Thread

Thanks for signing up everyone. I'm not going to sign up for a specific week. If anyone finds that they cannot take their week, let me know and I'll jump in and substitute. I'm starting to collect pictures for just such a situation.

Re: Sign up for the Weekly Inspirational Thread

Can this sign up thread be sticky, Debby, so it does not disappear. I think some folks are having trouble seeing it, too, based on post in the main thread.

Re: Sign up for the Weekly Inspirational Thread

Can I just ask that this gets stickied so it doesn't get lost in amongst all the wonderful journal threads. Just an idea
