|sneak peek of my submission piece|
itty bitty art...
Today I worked on my submission for an art challenge to one of my favorite mixed media art magazines. If you haven't discovered this yet, check it out here: Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine. The whole website is a great resource for mixed media artists. I love getting the magazine in the mail every couple months. You can also find it at craft stores like Joanne's or Michael's. It's filled with ideas and inspiration and it's what got me motivated to get back into art making a few years ago.
In every issue, Cloth Paper Scissors hosts an art challenge for readers to submit a piece of mixed media art for publication in the magazine. Their November/December challenge was to Make Mine Mini. So today I worked on my 4"x4" mixed media piece. Small proportions call for big creativity. How to fit juicy art on such a small canvas?
This will be my first art submission to a magazine. Getting published is on my Creative Bucket List this year, so keep your fingers crossed for me! I'll find out on January 11th if my piece was chosen to be a finalist for publication. I've decided that no matter what happens, I get a big pat on the back for putting myself out there.
