Have you ever done a card.. and just loved it??  I am super proud of the one I did for Girlgeek1000100....

Yes! Such a good feeling. I look forward to seeing that.

I claim Linda P for...tbd - due 11/28

5/0/0

I am in Maryland, USA. I am cool with glitter, adulty-ness,  thicker-ness, and brutally real emotions in cards; I'd prefer not receiving cards of politics/opinionating, horror/gore/intentional-gross-out, or cute-turned-creepy.

Theme suggestions:
  • The majestic/glorious/illustrious ____ (Depict something that is never considered "majestic" as being ultra-majestic, without making fun of it. For example, a convenience store snack, a hamster, or an orange safety cone)
  • Unimpressed ungulates, or other creatures that always seem annoyed with humanity, such as turtles
  • Botanical illustration, or a page from a past botanist or naturalist's field notebook
  • Mexico - Culture, places, history, nature, etc.
  • Slow-stitch/Boro or embroidered fabric card
  • World religions
  • Well-dressed and dignified animals
  • An altered playing card - with number and suit left visible on the card - with female nudity created primarily by women--celebrating the female form in all its shapes/colors/sizes, as something more than a commodity for men's viewing pleasure, unlike traditional nudie playing cards.
  • A creative representation/interpretation of one of the 4/5 elements (I have one water element card)
  • A Creativity Muse, Art Spirit, or a Fairy Godmother of Art/Craft
  • Unorthodog (image of a dog not considered conventionally cute/beautiful, but still is in its own unique, homely way! Underbites, derps, squished up faces, old age, asymmetrical, huge jowls, missing eye or limb, permanently grumpy faces, inexplicable habits...they all have a special place in my heart)
  • Your self-portrait, created in the style of your favorite artist. Or a Craftster trading card, if I don't have one from you yet!
  • An underrepresented character, species, quote, theme, etc. from any post-reboot Doctor Who
  • chakras, meditation, yoga, herbalism, tea, that kind of thing
  • Hand-drawn vernacular architecture homes, as practical or fantastical as you like (including tiny houses, earthships, fairy and anthropomorphic animal homes, etc)
  • Succulent wild women of any era or universe
  • Getting into what really matters at the life-and-death and/or cosmic levels
  • imagined voyages, magical adventures in any realm, or steampunk grandiosity
  • "Don't rain on my parade": Who/what is in my parade? I hope to collect a positive parade of ATCs to display in a row for encouragement.
  • Libraries, books, librarians, archives, etc.
  • A place that makes you happy and closer to whole (real, fictional, or from your dreams/imagination)
  • Weather or geological/meteorological/tidal phenomena
  • maiden/mother/crone
  • Anything rainbow

Yeaaah, Fiber Friday!

Such gorgeous work; that first skein is pure joy. Spinning that would be joyously hypnotic.

And wow, mullerslanefarm! Good to see you!

Happy accidents!

Iridescent, if I had a good printer or Photoshop I would be splicing that vintage vamp cat lady on your list into EVERYTHING. She belongs in every tourist attraction, every family holiday photo, every news broadcast.  Cheesy

8  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Re: First Weaving Experience - Placemat on: November 08, 2019 02:40:03 AM
That's so cool; what a good idea to go try out a new crafty thing on a family vacation. And the end result is much more useful, memorable and beautiful than store-bought souvenirs! And such a cute family you are!
I hadn't considered weaving workshops before as an alternative to committing the money and house space weaving requires. It's really a smart thing to do. Now I'm definitely going to seek one out, especially seeing that you can get so much done in one visit.  Smiley

I claim thanate for archaeology.

1/0/0 My first claim!

I am also in Maryland, USA. I would like to avoid all politics in cards, as well as horror/gore. I am cool with glitter, thicker cards, and added elements that dangle off beyond the edges of the card. Nudity and adult themes are fine, just please don't send me a card that is predominantly-penis. Not that I think any of you would do that!  Cheesy

My themes:
  • The majestic/glorious/illustrious ____ (Depict something that is never considered "majestic" as being ultra-majestic, without making fun of it.)
  • Unimpressed ungulates, or other creatures that always seem annoyed with humanity, such as turtles
  • Mexico - Culture, places, history, nature, etc.
  • World religions
  • Well-dressed and dignified animals
  • An altered playing card - with number and suit left visible on the card - with female nudity created primarily by women--celebrating the female form in all its shapes/colors/sizes, as something more than a commodity for men's viewing pleasure, unlike traditional nudie playing cards. Explore your own issues re nudity and the body, and bring them into your art as much or as little as you want to.
