…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
Here 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 <firstname.lastname@example.org>. 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.
Second and Third Prizes will be a copy of my Kantha eBook. Click here for a sample.
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!
