Re: Stacey's October Monthly Challenge

Yay for different mediums, techniques and subjects! That's what mine is - just whatever I feel like doing as long as it fills up the sketchbook. I'll go post your thread into the Index! Looking forward to your first pages.

THANKYOU for the encouragement Joan, Viv, EP, and Jackie.

Re: Stacey's October Monthly Challenge

Margo, if I don't stop commenting on everyones journals and start doing more work in my own, I am NEVER going to finish the front page, let alone anything else!!!!

Jen, I LOVE different mediums, especially mixed media.... seeing what will and will not work together, finding ways to make certain things work.... all fun experiments!!!!!!
The only way you will know if the paper will take watercolour is to try it.... remember it's a sketchbook, so buckling, mistakes and horribleness are all part of the good stuff too!!!!!

Gentle Hugs, Stacey

OMG--that's so true!! I was just thinking that I have a lot of threads...what is the count of participants at now? 28? 29?....to follow!
in fact, I think there are some more now that I need to go subscribe to...

I look forward to seeing your first entries!

The problem is no sooner do you catchup, that another thread is started, or another post is added to someones sketchbook!!!!

Re: Stacey's October Monthly Challenge

I am wondering if it would be better to make a new thread for each day or just continue adding to our original. If we add it our original it could be 50 plus pages long by the time we are done!! I think we might be crazy, we will be reading for hours each night!
