I have to date, made only one ATC. I have wanted to make more but have had trouble getting inspiration....so in my search for inspration I came across his '100 themes' challenge on deviantart. It's basically a list of 100 suggested themes and you do an artwork for each theme. The challenge is to do all 100 themes. I thought that this idea would be awesome for ATCs...I don't know how it could be done...maybe an ATC-along  (2 per week or something) or a swap (although I still haven't quite wrapped my head around how ATC swaps work...)

So here is the very long list...please, tell me what you think... Grin Suggestions please!

31. Flowers
32. Night
33. Expectations
34. Stars

I made one tonight since posting this idea. I did number 22. 'Mother Nature'. I am gonna scan it in later tonight so I can share pictures!

(I might edit the main thread to add 'ATC-along' to the title...)

PaperBag, I'm glad you're excited about this too! I started writing them all down but then I got impatient and just printed the list out Grin

If we do this as a craftalong, how about having this little part in each post? (see below)

My tally stands at 1/100.
I have completed #22.

Well I bookmarked this list last night to contemplate making these and well, I actually started!!!  Cheesy I have the first two done...I may go in order down the list-as it might help with the indecisiveness. But who knows-I always break my rules. And I will eventually get my pictures up on the gallery...

This is going to be challenging and fun!!! Smiley
