We don't have any hosts after April - so choose any time you'd like and I'll add you - May's not too soon for us

Okay, I'll take May. But somebody's gotta remind me ahead of time. (Something about getting old!)

Re: Different Strokes: Hosting Schedule 2014/2015

Glad you found hosts, Maureen. Sorry for not showing up.l Right now I don't even get around to paint anything for DS but I'll be sure to offer hosting again once things ease up a bit.

Somehow we'll muddle through Ferlian - when all is OK for you, it will be fine for us Life has a way of spoiling our plans sometimes!

Re: Different Strokes: Hosting Schedule 2014/2015

I'll try September. Never did it before. September is always a busy month for me so I may be absent now and then. I have an idea for the subject matter. Will you PM the particulars to me? I haven't a clue how to go about all this. (Not very bright)

Re: Different Strokes: Hosting Schedule 2014/2015

Thanks Cindy - that'd be great!

The rules, such as they are, are in the very first post of this thread - but here they are again!
Quote:
When you host, your invitation thread should include your own text but also the following -

  • All entries must be for this challenge and in acrylics - any type of acrylic.
  • Join in the discussion about the project - it's friendly and fun to learn how others are coping/struggling/thriving!!! But no visual images!
  • Help can be gained from asking but also from looking for resource materials elsewhere - the RIL e.g.
  • A 'reveal' date for all is 21st of the month - that gives us 3 weeks to make the work, plus an extra week for latecomers



************************************************** **

Suggested text for opening post of hosting thread:

WELCOME TO THE **date/month** DIFFERENT STROKES CHALLENGE



If you would like to host a Different Strokes, please see the Schedule thread here (Please make a link to the Schedule thread)

Please read the guidelines below carefully.

GUIDELINES:
On the first of each month a reference photo (or photos) will be posted in a thread entitled "Different Strokes".

All entries must be for this challenge and in acrylics - any type of acrylic.
Join in the discussion about the project - it's friendly and fun to learn how others are coping/struggling/thriving!!! But no visual images!
Help can be gained from asking but also from looking for resource materials elsewhere - the RIL e.g.
A 'reveal' date for all is 21st of the month - that gives us 3 weeks to make the work, plus an extra week for latecomers.
Interpret the ideas any way you wish - be inventive, realistic, influenced by another style or '...ism' - it's up to you!

PLEASE DO NOT UPLOAD WORK TO THE THREAD BEFORE THE 21ST OF THE MONTH.** Much more exciting and fun to see what 'masterpieces' appear!
If work is uploaded early it will be moved to a safe place until 21st.

At the end of the month the thread /discussion will be closed and a new challenge will begin.

**Please note, the single 'reveal' date is chosen so that we do not influence each other with our individual interpretations ......
that's the whole point of it being called 'Different Strokes'!
By all means ask questions in the thread or initiate discussion about the challenge - just don't post images!!!

The challenge this month is ................** your own description of the challenge**

You may crop, combine, zoom in and select a portion, use any part for pattern work ....... just let the imagination roam!

There are larger scale images here (if you have them, provide link)!


***Add image references as necessary.***

On Tues 1st Sept, just make a thread, add all the info and your idea and anything special you'd like participants to do! - add any refs you may wish us to use, or just for ideas.
When you've posted it, use the report button (red triangle, top right of post) and ask for it to be stuck - the report comes to Carol and to me, so one of us will stick it soon as poss.

Shout if you need more

Re: Different Strokes: Hosting Schedule 2014/2015

We have no hosts signed up for next year

I don't know if you'd prefer to have a rest in December, knowing what a busy month it is! ..... however, if you would like a Diff. Strokes in December, I'll post the challenge ........... after that *shrug*, I'll need to get the whip out!

Re: Different Strokes: Hosting Schedule 2014/2015

Well, I always have all kinds of Christmasy projects I want to do so I wouldn't really miss it if we skip December.

If you don't mind my mentioning this, for anyone who likes digital stuff, there is a reflections challenge going on for Nov and Dec. It is open to all types of digital work.
