A Contest You Say?…

CONTEST LETTERING…Yes, it’s time to rev it up! August 1st always symbolizes the middle of summer for me. I love summer – no freezing temperatures, and when I start to complain about the heat all I need to remember is the extreme cold we will have in less than six months and suddenly the heat isn’t so bad.

This post is Blog post # 510! I had planned to celebrate post # 500 but it somehow slipped away from me and it seemed appropriate not to wait much longer to find a reason to celebrate! I started blogging on my website in 2009 and on December 7th, 2011 I switched over the WordPress and I have never looked back (Here is a link to the first “shy” post…). I love WordPress for all its possibilities! I can blog on the road, with my phone and my iPad – when I have a great image to share or when I want to start a discussion! Thank you WordPress for making it so easy!

OK, enough reminiscing, let’s get on with the contest: The theme is “Exploring Line: Make Your Mark!” We live among lines… straight lines , curved and wavy lines, broken lines, suggested lines, thin lines and thick lines

lines… you get the idea!

Lines may be created by drawing with sticks in the sand or dirt, they are made more permanent using a pencil or pen on paper, a needle and thread on fabric (by hand or machine). quilting lines

Kantha lineLines are everywhere and when we combine these lines we often find ourselves creating doodles…

Hand doodle in progressHand Doodle_finishedHere is the objective: Create something on paper or fabric based on the theme “Exploring Line: Make Your Mark!”. It should measure no smaller than 2.5″ x 3.5″ and no larger than 12″ x 16″. Take a picture of it, resize it to 4″ x 6″ / 72 dpi and send it to me <>. Put “Line contest submission” into the subject line. I will accept up to three images per person. Please do not send previously created work – this all about THIS August – it’s about summer and being in the moment!

Deadline: August 31st, 2015
I will collect the images, number them and post them in a slide show in early September. You retain the full rights to the art work. I will not post the images as single images at a later date!

Once the slide show goes live, everyone has a chance to vote for their favorite submission in the comments section! Voting will be open for 7 days after the images go live. The entry with the most votes will receive this framed original piece of fiber art.

Machine embellished image“Encased”, photo transfer, machine embellished; matted and framed to 10″ x 10″, ready for hanging. (Retail value Can. $ 195)

Are you ready? Thread those needles, rev up the machines, poise those pencils and markers…. GO!! Anything goes – can’t wait to see your work!
