Joleen has begun revamping the Portals blog this weekend. Its looking pretty awesome. We really want to make it a stand alone blog with all kinds features, tutorials and contests in addition to Portals news, instead of just a place where we post the newest issue.
To kick it off right for the new year we are having a contest where you can win issue #7, the HOME issue which we're planning for March of this year. If you haven't checked the current issue out yet you can see that it is full color, professionally printed and bound and just brimming with fabulous, COLORFUL and inspiring art.
We hope you will visit us often to see whats going on and maybe even jump in by offering up your own artwork or a tutorial for a future issue!
In other contest news, Joleen is ALSO hosting a give away on her blog where you can win something cool that she hasn't shared yet.
And finally, I am jumping on the band wagon and offering up my OWN give away. I will be giving away one of my JUNQUE packs which are simply brimming with stuff for creating. There are snippets of all kinds of papers, fabric, trims, shapes, failed art projects, stickers, Dresdens, fibers, charms, beads, buttons.. I can't even LIST all the things I stuff into these packs. They are super inspiring and useful to launch projects from ATCs to journal pages, collages and mixed media projects. What I want you to do is to leave a comment telling me an idea you'd like to see in a future issue of Portals. I will choose a winner on Friday the 16th and announce it here. Be sure you leave me a way to contact you! Have a great and creative day!
