I'm Breaking Into the Candy Corn to Celebrate!

I just got my November / December issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine and am thrilled to share that I was included in an "On Our Radar" article!
I really cannot say enough good things about Cloth Paper Scissors. I started entering their challenges a little over a year ago. The challenges have always been fun and have pushed me to explore new materials and styles. Within a year and half of entering the first challenge, my work has been published in three of the magazines and a calendar. When I decided to start entering their challenges, I never dreamed I would be featured in an article.
The experience of submitting art and seeing it get published has been incredibly exciting and encouraging. As a result, I feel more confident about sharing my work with others and am more open to the possibility that art can be a bigger part of my life.
If you are a mixed media artist, I would strongly encourage you to check out CPS and submit some work of your own. Working on a project, meeting the deadline, waiting for results, and seeing your work published are all experiences that will enrich your artistic life.
Now for some celebrating!

I almost forgot... my mixed media house was also featured in the "home sweet home" challenge!
