Artful Building Blocks In each issue of Somerset Apprentice, we publish Artful Building Blocks — easy techniques that can be the starting point for a great work of art. If you have a technique that would make a good Artful Building Block we encourage you to submit it for publication consideration. Artful Building Blocks must be fairly simple and straightforward so that those new to mixed-media art can easily do it. ABB’s are shown as a 2-page spread. The first page shows the completed artwork and a brief introduction, and the second page shows the steps needed to create the technique. To submit your idea(s) for an Artful Building Block, here are some guidelines:

    • Your Artful Building Block technique must be presented in six easy-to-do steps — one of which is Step 1 – “Gather all your supplies” with an image of what is needed to create your project.

 

  • The remaining five should show the other steps taken to complete the technique.

 

 

  • Copy must be written that includes a brief introduction (2-3 sentences), a tools and materials list, the steps, and 2-4 tips.

 

 

  • Send image of original artwork shot alone, and then photographs of the 6 steps. (Remember: Step 1 must be “Gather all your supplies”)

 

 

  • Images need to be shot on a white background in natural light.

 

 

  • Images must be sent at 300 dpi at 8″ x 10″. Please put them in a zip file or send large images through WeSendItDropBoxWeTransfer or similar file sharing program.

 

 

  • Please include your name and complete mailing address, plus any website or blog information you’d like published.

 

 

Please send submissions to the Editor-in-Chief at Somerset Apprentice at jholstein@stampington.com with “Artful Building Blocks” in the subject line.

Deadline: October 15th

Remember to make your cards in the Take Ten style, and keep them quick and easy! Please note “Take Ten — VOAT” on the envelope. 

A Different Point of View How many different looks can you achieve with one stamp? We are looking for cards made with the Different Point of View concept.

Really challenge yourself to view the image in new ways, and push the boundaries of a single stamp. Remember to make your cards in the Take Ten style, and keep them quick and easy. Please note “Take Ten — DPOV” on the envelope.

General Cards We are looking for quick and easy stamped cards for this best-selling magazine. Send us your “ten minutes or less” artwork in any style, theme or color and we’ll send you a free issue if your artwork is published.
