Well hey there! Do you like getting your hands dirty with ink and paint? Do you distress, tear, crumple, and otherwise destroy your papers? Do you find that you often get comments like "Wow, great distressing," or "Look at all that ink and paint!". Do you feel misunderstood in your love of the "darkside" of scrapping?
If so, you've found the right place! I would love to form a COF consisting of gals and guys whom adore the dirty side of scrapping. Come in and chat, vent about your day, and share your work. Stuck on a page? Post and we'll help! Want a raw, honest critique? Ask, and we'll give it. Share your distressing tips and tutorials with us here! Most importantly, have fun!
Sooooo, who will join me, and be my deliciously distressed friends?? I'm looking to keep the group under 20, so we can get to know each other and keep up with chat. If you're interested, please copy the questionaire below, and reply with your answers. Look forward to meeting you!
Check out our tutorials, which is the third post down from here, for inspiration!
Our challenges, to keep us growing as artists!
Challenge 1: Scrap with a product or technique OUTSIDE of your comfort zone..
FIRST HOLIDAY GIFT/CARD EXCHANGE INFO::
!!!*GIRLS, THE HOLIDAYS ARE ALMOST UPON US*!!!!!
**HERE'S THE IDEA**:
I will take the names of people who want to do this, and pair people up. Via PM, you will be given your pals' name, address, and brief questionnaire answers. You will then need to send a handmade card, altered goodie, and another treat to your pal. You must mail by FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10,2010..
Sound good?? If you want in, here's what you must do:
*Post here that you want to, and send me a PM that you want in, by Friday, September 10. Include your full name, mailing address, and answers to the questionnaire. (At the bottom of this post)
*The weekend of September 11-12, I will assign pals and send you a PM with your pal's info. THIS IS A SECRET!!! Don't tell who you are making goodies for! We want this to be a surprise! You will be making items for someone DIFFERENT than who is making for you!!
((Of course, as the hostess, I will know who is making for me. That is OK by me! AND, no matter how much you bribe me, I will not tell who is making for who! HAHA!)
*Going by your pals' answers on the questionnaire, you must make a card, handmade goodie, and send them a treat. Then, mail by FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2010...
