See these thumbnails?
Avatars, portraits, smiling faces, little drawings…
These little squares all represent an artist that you can visit by clicking on the photo – except for the woman in the last row on the left… because that is ME and you already are HERE!
Now what does this mean, you might think?
Come on in and I’ll tell you!
This group of artists is brought together by Seth Apter from The Altered Page, to be published in his book and yessss… I’m in there too!!!
This book will be released
on November 15, 2013 and
Seth uses the time leading up
to that date to introduce all
artists that are in the book
on his blog The Altered Page.
Here’s what he says:
“30 artists…30 days.
Spend the month of October
with me at The Altered Page
to meet the 30 spotlight artists
in my book The Mixed-Media Artist:
Art Tips, Tricks, Secrets and Dreams
from Over 40 Amazing Artists.
See them in action in their studios,
read their ‘quirky’ bios written in
their own words, see some of their
art that led me to invite them to be
a part of my book, and hear my
story of what they each mean to me.
Then click on over to their sites
and see what they have to say about
The Mixed-Media Artist.”
In his blogpost, Seth says we crossed paths online for many years… I agree of course and when I read that, I got really curious to find out when it was exactly that we came across each other.
I remember it was me who found out about Seth first, because I bumped into the disintegration project on the internet, and I wanted to know more about it. I was fascinated by that project and played along. The first blogpost I wrote about it was on July 8th, 2009 – I was still scrapbooking back then but searching for other ways to create and already finding my way to art journaling. Which, as you know, I found out about. I started art journaling and never looked back 🙂
Now that you are here on my blog, I take the opportunity to point you to FEATURING magazine
FEATURING magazine is an international publication. A printed magazine about art journaling, mixed media and more. The magazine is shipped world wide and available in the online store. We released four issues now and the respons is very positive, but we notice that still a lot of people haven’t heard of our magazine… in order to keep my baby – this awesome art publication – alive and going, we have to spread the word and get more brand awareness so we can reach more customers. The release of the next issue depends on that. Therefore, I decided to set up a special promoting CAMPAIGN that is running right now. Go visit the campaign blog and order your copies in the online store.
