It's brainstorming time again. We need your ideas for the theme of Contest #18. You have one week to submit ideas to be voted on. If you like someone's idea, second it. Only seconded ideas will be put in the voting thread. The winner of Contest 17's idea is automatically seconded. This brainstorming will be open indefinitely while DL tinkers with some behind the scenes improvements. Then, I will close this thread and put up the voting thread. So, go put your thinking caps on and submit some fresh, fun, new ideas for the theme of Contest #18!

_____________________________________________
Contest Rules
1. Entries must be previously unsubmitted workthat depicts the contest theme in some way. Entries must be at least 2/3 maille woven within the time frame of the contest. The remaining 1/3 can be any maille previously woven or any non-maille. Maille consists of any rings, metal or otherwise, or ring substitutes like scales or pop tabs. Non-maille consists of things like beads or wire wraps.

2. You can submit as many entries as you like.

3. Pictures and descriptions of the entry should be submitted to the contest submission thread before the deadline, by hosting the pictures offsite. (In other words, you need to use an image hosting site to place your picture in the entry thread. They are free to use, you just have to register with them to create an account. Some examples of image hosting sites are TinyPic, Photobucket, Flickr, and ImageShack.) Pictures MUST be a MAXIMUM of 100Kb and a MAXIMUM of 800px per side.

4. The submission period for entries generally lasts 12 weeks. After the deadline for contest entries, the contest organizer will create a voting thread with all the entries, to be voted on by the membership. The entire membership may vote, each member having one vote. Polls usually last one week before the winner is declared.

5. The winner of the contest will receive a colored shield by their avatar with a number corresponding to the contest they won. The winner will also be granted automatic inclusion of their suggestion on the list of themes for the next contest.

6. The contest organizer may invalidate any entry. If you have concerns about your or any other entry, please contact the contest organizer with a PM. If the contest organizer deems it necessary, a new thread for public discussion will be opened.

Request to elongate the theme discussion, to give me time to work on the future Contest setups.

Tell a mailler what ring sizes to use and they'll weave for a day. Teach them AR and they'll weave forever.

I am SO STOKED that I finally won one! Thank you to everyone who voted for my bracer! There were some great entries. Good competition. Not a dud in the bunch. Awesome!

I'd like to suggest plants/flowers as the next theme.

Thanks!

As the most recent theme contest winner, you don't need to be seconded, but I will make a 'token' second anyway of your excellent suggestion of plants/flowers. Your inlaid bracer is awesome, Revvig, and you are a most deserving winner.

What about pieces in materials not commonly used for maille? Wood, wool, Jell-o? Smile

Macromaille. ID greater than or equal to 2".


If at first you don't succeed, try a different aspect ratio.
