Default MMTPT202 ~ June 12, 2012 ~ An Exhibition in White! The Importance of Light!

WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #202


AN EXHIBITION IN WHITE!
THE IMPORTANCE OF LIGHT!
THIS PAINTING'S NOT RIGHT!
GET IT OUT OF MY SIGHT!


Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!

This is my story!


1. I came to realize last week that there could be 42,000 teapots around the world just waiting to be the star of the show on Teapot Tuesday, but if there is not a computer cooperating with cast and crew (that would be me!), then the show comes to a screeching halt! I picked my computer up on Friday! Whoot! After all, the show must go on! Ladies and Gentlemen...........

2. Meet Constantina Giovina! She quite the arteest! She is on the verge of breaking the bigtime! In just one week, she will join other well know artists to feature their work in the Exhibition in White! The artists that succeed at this exhibition are instantly pursued by art collectors all over the world! It's quite the honor to be invited and its the very last hurdle to clear on her path to fame! One last hurdle and she'll be able to charge $42,000 per painting, before she's lost in the lap of luxury, before she is rewarded with unlimited colorful canines frollicking through the prize winning flower gardens chasing beautiful butterflies! One more hurdle, one more hurdle. Why am I moving as slow as a turtle? One more week, one more week! Why am I acting so helpless and meek? One more painting, one more painting! Why am I suddenly on the verge of just fainting? One more step, one more step! How could I be so very inept?

3. Well, to find the answers to the questions racing though her mind, it might help you to know what the dilema is. The collection she must paint must be white on white! What a delight! It's the Exhibition in White! She must paint in only white! What about the light, what light is just right?

The Exhibition in White!
The Importance of Light!
This Painting's Not Right!
Get It Outa My Sight!

She's about to lose it, oh, the stress and the worry! Remember in Cinderella how the mice and birdies came to her rescue and made her a wonderful dress to wear to the ball? Well, Constantina's canines, her best friends, have decided to take charge! They were inspired by the Cinderella story! They know her well! She is a little eccentric, a little unique but they watch her paint daily and they know her technique! It's all about color, the placement of paint! It has to be vivid, it cannot be faint! Rut roh! They are not informed, they don't have it right! They don't know the requirements of the Exhibition in White! Their canvas screams color, their paw strokes just right! Won't she be proud when she sees their painting tonight?

4. How do you tell a dozen colorful, sweet and caring canines that the paintings they created for the Exhibition in White are all wrong? You don't! Why hurt their feelings? Instead you bring in an expert to do the painting and do something to create a diversion for the canines. Something that will get their minds off Constantina Giovina's dilema. You should not be surprised to learn that these loyal canine companions love romping in the artist's flower gardens, chasing butterflies as they go! They are totally enamored and obbsessed by beautiful flowers and colorful butterflies! So, here's the deal, Neal. Neal is the gardner, he minds the flowers and picks up the dog....well never mind. We'll bring flowers and butterflies! That'll get the canines out of the studio! Romping in the garden chasing butterflies will keep them busy and will put an end to their painting, to their colorful paw prints on a canvas of white! When the expert comes to paint, they won't even know we have sabotaged their artistry by getting them outdoors to the gardens!!

CHALLENGE TRANSLATION:
Mark a card with butterflies! Make a card with flowers! Beautiful elegant gardens! Now one might wonder what does a teapot with puppy pawprints have to do with flowers and butterflies? Well, that's where extra cookies come in.

EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES (EPEC)
You get extra points for extra cookies if you bring the expert artist to the teaparty to paint Constantina's collection for the Exhibit in White! Who would that expert be, you ask. Why, a fluffy white puppy! Who better to paint white on white! He'll get it right! Extra points for fluffy white puppies!


DESTINATION STATION:
This week our destination is Hickory, North Carolina. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Regina. Regina is the sister in law of fellow SCSer Sherry (SoSherry). Regina is going through a very, very difficult time. She is saddened, depressed and filled with worry. If ever there was a person who needs some happy mail to get their mind off their current situation, it is Regina.

For additional information on Regina and the address to mail your card please visit Post #298 of the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is totally 100% voluntary!

Here is my card.

Here is the awesome card that Sherry made for her sister-in-law, Regina.

Here is a Quick Link to the Teapot Tuesday #202 Challenge Gallery.

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT202 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given me permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send me a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!

If you are confused about these challenges, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges. Feel free to grab this I survived Teapot Tuesday Badge for your blog!

Can't believe I had one done early, but I found a little time today to make my Teapot card and play in a couple other challenges in one fell swoop. (some day, I'll figure out the origin of that phrase!) Here's my card.

No puppy but does my hedgie count? MMTPT202 For Regina by #1volunteer - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

After the wonderful teaparty you all threw for Rebekah, I am even more impressed with the difference a single card makes. I can't imagine what Regina is going through. Havin my partial hip replacement after my hip broke was bad enough. I hope our cards will cheer her.

Okay, there were a few who asked to see the "strange cow" that I created and tossed out...here he/she is. I was too embarrassed to put this in my actual gallery, I figured that only a Teapotter would understand.

Enjoy a giggle.

Amy, this cow is cute, though I don't know that I'd call it a cow! I love it!

Hello all you wonderful Teapotters. It has been awhile since I've made it to one of the teaparties, however, I am here and thinking of what to put on my card for Regina. I just thought I would stop in and say Hello before starting my day. Which consists of going to see the doctor and working on cards. I wish I could skip the doctor part tho and just work on cards all day hehe. Hmmm....butterflies, white puppies, paw prints, flowers....and white on white...boy am I glad you didn't say white on rice Cindy cuz I would NEVER figure that one out...lol. Great story I can't wait to get started on my card. I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!! Big Huggs to all

I did it!!!! I came up with an idea for this week's challenge. It's not white on white, however, it has white in it. It also has flowers and a butterfly and another little surprise. I hope you like it.
