NEW CT THEME IS.....(due Oct 4th)

Artwork by Anna Walker (video). Check out her wonderful art and animations!

Sing along with me now: If you go down to the woods today you're in for a big surprise. If you go down to the woods today you won't believe your eyes...because... LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD OR SNOW WHITE might be down there too! :) Yes. That is the new theme. Take your pick and let your imaginations wander. I think this could be really fun. Just look at all the ways to depict these classic fairy tales! Regardless of which story, I'm thinking that red and woods are prevailing for both. Hmm... the ideas are turning! :)

If you've ever considered joining in before but haven't, this is a good time as any. So, come venture in the creative woods with us today! And, frankly, truth be told, if enough of us aren't able to do it for whatever reason,  I'm not convinced it's worth the effort of the few of us to keep this co-op chugging along. If the writing's on the wall, so be it, but I hope not. I know that last time I shut down CT, few of us ever did any art in the 6 month absence and I'd be sorry to see it go after all these years. Well, we shall see. If it's time for something new, that's OK too.

To mix things up this go round, and for the sake of experimentation, I'm putting the sign up now but of course, you still have two weeks, until Tuesday, Oct 4th, midnight MST, to submit your work, visit each other and so on. See you then! :)

P.S. I'll be re-posting this every few days to keep a post-feed reminder for us all too. Thank you for your contributions.

PATTERN - sign up now.

Artwork by Kirsten Sevig

Fancy some redecoration? Time to spruce up the ol' place? Well, if wallpaper is too bold a step, how about we try to create one ourselves with our very own PATTERN

The C.T. board has some examples of the kind  of direction you could take. As you can see, you don't have to create it digitally. All I ask is that we each include at least two different elements that repeat themselves. If doing this all freehand, don't worry if some object vary slightly between repeated items. We'll get the idea well enough. 

Time for a Spring clean, as it were, but um, with Autumn chills soon approaching, perhaps we just consider this in lieu of a fresh coat of paint? :)
