Next Exchange Date...

Hi Everyone!

Just a friendly reminder that we are working on moly's for a two-month time frame. Our next exchange date is scheduled for February 28, 2011.

Thanks so much for keeping lines of communication open among group members and for thoughtfulness and understanding on all ends. It is so important as we had agreed at the start of this project.

We have such a great group! So pleased to be a part of it all...the group, the collaboration, the inspiration, the creation, and so excited each time a new piece emerges. This is awesome!

Here's my sign-in page for the "Zentangle Moly Exchange Group", a.k.a. moly_x_11. I think I was the first to post mine, so I guess it's only practical that I start first here, lol!

Our moly_x_11 Blog Banner...

Any ideas for creating a more colorful and personalized banner for our blog?

1. One thought is to have each of us design a piece of the banner and post when finished.
2. Another idea is for one of us to come up with the composition and lettering and for the rest of us to "tangle" around it.

Any other ideas?

Let's get started on the blog!

I thought is would be a good idea for each of us to first post our sign-in pages. Once all of the sign-in pages are posted, we can each post our first entries as a group, then second, then third as we would have if we would have had our blog from the beginning! I was thinnking that would make the most sense as far as sequencing and documenting our progress throughout the project as well as for archiving purposes. Does that work for everyone?

How exciting that our moly_x_11 blog is up and running!

This is a very exciting group project that we have committed to here and what a talented group that we have assembled! Not only talented, but dedicated and very supportive of each other. I am so very honored to be a part of it! The work that has been produced so far is impressive as seen on each of our members' individual flickr sites and it is exciting that it will all now be able to be viewed here as a cohesive body of work!

So for the record, I just want to state here that we decided as a group that we would call our group the "Zentangle Moly Exchange Group", a.k.a. moly_x_11. We also decided that although the Zentangle art form is what we would be incorporating into our group project, that "strings" and "tangles" would be incorporated in a way that was unique and true to the individual artist's interpretation and style, leaving as much room for flexibility, exploration and growth as possible within the project. We decided that a 2 month rotation period would be appropriate.

Our moly_x_11 is made up of 5 members from around the world: 1 from Oregon, 1 from Belgium, 2 from Arizona, and 1 from Tennessee.

Our only "requirement" was to really have fun with this project. And I believe we are accomplishing just that!

So let's get started on the blog moly_x_11!!!
