I'm new to origamione and ready to see some challenges.
Mary Bell, I would love a challenge also. It would be fun to post a pattern and then have people post pics. I am an intermediate folder so it couldn't be an advanced. Let me know what you think we might be able to suggest and we will see if anyone is interested. I posted a pic of Riccardo Fosschi's feathered crane, see what you think about that or maybe Sipho Mabona's swallow? I also like the acorn by Beth Johnson or her sheep. I've never attempted the acorn because the top looks complicated beyond my abilities but maybe a "challenge" is what I need. Margaret
Please lets talk more about what you have in mind.
What I was thinking was to post a challange with 3 models and to have people post pics of their finished pieces. One simple, one intermediate and one complex. What do you think? Sort of like a contest but everyone could paticipate? What do you think? Margaret
Can we ask for different media types challenge,
What do you want to start with?
Well, I shall think about how to word it........ another idea I had was to ask admin if they would add a 'gallery' section so we could post the pictures of things that we do. It would be just photos with the folders names and credit to the designer, maybe sectioned by month? As to other mediums, I know people have had their models cast in metal or clay or used a soft metal sheet and fabric for quilts. Could be paintings or collage with origami as subject matter,or photography. The more I think about it, the more categories I come up with. We could have monthly themes. Oct. would be a good one to start in because of Halloween or Harvest celebrations. Can you think of anything else we could suggest? I will check with Admin and see what would be allowed. Margaret
Oh my. I like all you have come up with! So maybe present the theme at the beginning of each month. Post results by end. No awards. No hoopla. Just pure inspiration. YES!
I got a reply back from Admins and they said they are still setting up the site and more catagories are to come so we will see how this developes. Margaret
I wonder how long that will be?
Thank you for your enthusiasm Margaret.
Mary Bell, I don't know anything about setting up a site like this so I don't know what it takes to add new catagories. I hope it is soon though. I was thinking of starting a Facebook page for origami. I know some other Facebook pages exist for individual artists and groups. I like this site so I hope it happens soon. Margaret
