Ladies and gentlemen, I was thinking on the blog train frequency thread and on the ammount of FANTASTIC palettes we have on June Blog train ideas and also on how short is being the votation for it, and very weird idea came to my mind: Why on the month we don´t have a blogtrain we don´t make colabs?
I submited that idea for Marisa, and she told me to come here and share it with you, to see if we appreciate it and how many people are intrested in colaborate.
The diference between the colab and the blog train would be that, in blog trains, each one does her/his kit or mini kit, and on the colab we will make only one big kit together. Or maybe two, if there are too many people intersested to fill only one kit.
To make this work, we will need to have some things in a more formal approach, and a quality check too, to make sure that all parts have a minimum quality standards. We we could get the second, or the second and third, who had more votes at the July blog train, for colabs.
I don´t know for sure how stores that have colabs assign what will each designer do, but we can probably divide the tasks and ask people to choose which one they want to do. Examples of tasks would be
-one solid paper for each color, using the same texture(s)
-one tone-over-tone paper for each color
-5 patterned papers
-3 patterned papers and 3 elements
-A flower pack with 6 flowers of different colors
-4 themed elements
and so on, in a way they are few items for person, but we can put together a nice kit.
Yeah, it´s a weird idea. But maybe it works. To know if it has a chance to work or not, I need to know:
-Is there someone that already worked on a store colab to help you telling how it´s usually done?
-Are there people willing to be part of the quality check team for the colab?
-Do you want to participate on it, knowing that the portions will be all very tiny and that the theme will be probably known 1 month and a half before the deadline to submit the kit for quality check?
I am the first subscribed designer, lol.
