*Chinese Whispers teams *schedule revised

Postby joannie » Wed Aug 09, 2017 8:41 am

Here are our teams!  The first swap day is August 16.   Here is an example: I'm on team 5. I will send my layout to karen c. and I will receive one from emarie803.  And then I'll begin working on lifting her layout for the next swap day!  

Team 1
lissahope26
karensay
1scrappymom
JillinIN

Team 2
Retiree3
blbabe1234
hsblair
sweetsour

Team 3
StacyLee
beachlover
emmapaige
Linda S.

Team 4
KrazSparkle
Sherelm
love2stamp
oceanbreezes423

Team 5
karen c.
scrappinmom99
emarie803
joannie


Again here are the rules!!
Here is how you play:
It's a game that is set up in teams. The 1st week every participant chooses their own sketch and interprets it in a layout. On Swap day you pass your layout not the sketch to the next person in your group/team. You all have a week to interpret that layout in your own style and then swap again. Eventually you would have interpreted everyone's sketch and at the end, as in Chinese whispers you see the differences to each person's original sketch from everyone's perspective. 

KEY POINTS:
**PRIVATE setting must be turned on when uploading your layout to the gallery
**On SWAP day you send an image of your layout by Private Message to the next person on your team
**When swapping the layouts on Swap day, keep the original owner's name in the subject line of your pm
for example: on the first swap day I will name my pm "joannie's layout" and send it to jackie, who is next on my team. When she sends it, she will also name it "joannie's layout". Makes sense?
**Everyone PLEASE try to swap your layouts on time, you don't want to take time away from the next person 

Schedule and Reveal date
August 8 Sign up deadline 
August 9 Teams are announced
August 16 First swap day
August 23 Second swap day
August 30 Third swap day
FRIDAY Sept 8 SWAP AND REVEAL DAY



On REVEAL DAY
You will pm your 3 completed layouts (the layouts  u made) back to the original 3 owners of the sketch (that is why we need to name those pm's). Once the owner receives all 3 layouts from her teammates. I will have made a new post for each team's reveal. You will need to put the layouts in order, by the SKETCH, your layout version, and followed by the others on your team in order (sketch AND  4 layouts).

If you are completely confused...ask me questions. Since this is our first go of this we will probably hit a few bumps!

I see I am on team 4, slot four. Does that mean that the first sketch goes to the top of the list for me?

I had some time this afternoon so I already created my layout.  With all my hubby's medical challenges, I figured I'd better do it now because who knows what will happen next!

Let's hope/pray hubby is done with his medical issues!   I got my layout done early too! I knew I'd have company for the next week or two!!

I picked - or should I say FINALLY made a decision on which sketch I'd use last night, so tonight I plan on hitting the paper. 

Just a little warning, though, for sending early.  I was in a circle journal (well, many circle journals) and if we didn't send on or about the day we were supposed, mass chaos ensued. . . I'd suggest at least sending it with a "This is the layout for such and such a day" swap.  Sometimes a gal gets two at once, when you do it that way.  Just saying. . . (Not to be a wet wrap saying this, because I'm excited!!)

I can see that happening!  My brain is a little fried these days! I can see me confusing the layouts!

Oh, I hope this does not get confusing.  I plan to hold mine until the day it is due(or day before).  Then send it on.
