A hand-me-down sweater … a raggedy old skirt from the thrift store … a plain T-shirt … all of these items can be repurposed into new, fashionable finds with just a few tools and a little creativity. We invite you to submit your own altered and embellished clothing items to be considered for publication in Altered Couture. Items published in the past include skirts, dresses, pants, tops, jackets, vests, shoes, and accessories.

Please submit a “before” photo along with your altered creation, if available. Photos and illustrations showing your process are also strongly encouraged. We also encourage you to submit to our challenges below.
Deadline:  June 15, 2016

Challenges

Make it Better With Bleach
Bleach is by far one of our favorite altering mediums. In fact, we’re so impressed by what our readers can accomplish with this household product that we decided to make it the subject of our new challenge. Whether you’re painting, stamping, doodling, splattering, stenciling, or dipping, we’d like to see all of the creative ways you can use bleach to upcycle and alter. Sometimes all an article of clothing needs to become your next wardrobe staple or piece of wearable art is a bit of bleach.
Deadline: June 15, 2016

Mythological Creatures

Every culture has its own collection of myths, many belonging to particular religions or stories passed on through generations. Whether the half-man, half-horse Centaur; Medusa who could turn men to stone with her gaze; large, hairy, man-like Sasquatch beasts; wild and scary werewolves, or the more graceful unicorn, we know you’ll have fun coming up with a doll for this challenge. This is a very broad category, so feel free to explore whatever mythological creature you desire. Please include the inspiration for your doll, its dimensions, brief instructions, and complete contact information with your submission. Results will be published in our Winter 2016 Issue.
Deadline: June 15, 2016

April Calls and Challenges

 

Get Published: Somerset Studio Calls and Challenges

~Artwork by Lynne Perrella

As the leading mixed-media publication, Somerset Studio aims to share the latest tips, tricks, and techniques being used in the art community, as well as share tales of creativity through essays. Each issue has a selected theme that we provide to give artists inspiration for their work, but we also accept submissions that do not follow a selected theme. All submission samples should be sent to the Editor-in-Chief as outlined in our Submission Guidelines. Our current theme submissions are as follows:

  • Winter Wonderland
    There’s so much to love about winter. Twinkle lights, steaming cups of hot cocoa, everything blanketed in bright white snow … it’s easy to get caught up in the magic of it. It’s also the time we gather together to celebrate the holidays with our family. For our November/December 2016 issue, we’re looking for artwork that captures the magic of winter. This includes work celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, the Solstice, Kwanzaa, and more. Whatever inspires you during winter we want to see it.
    Deadline: June 15, 2016
  • All About Olive
    Olive green is one of those classic colors a lot of us love. Almost everyone looks good wearing it, and it pairs well with so many other colors. We realized we don’t see nearly enough green in artwork these days, especially olive green. For our annual color issue, we want to see how you incorporate this gorgeous color into your art. Use it as an accent or use it as the main color. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
    Absolute deadline: August 15, 2016

Somerset Studio is also seeking the following types of article submissions on an ongoing basis:

  • Painted Hands
    At the end of a creative session, there is something so satisfying about peering at your hands and finding them splattered with paints and ink. Somerset Studio’seditorial team just loves seeing pictures of artists’ hands all messy and painted, evidence of a day of work (or play). We’d love to see pictures of what your hands look like after a marathon session of art-making.
  • The Last Page
    We conclude each issue with a narrative accompanied by a piece of artwork. Published submissions have included essays on what creativity means, how art has touched lives, and much more. Each essay submission should be approximately 300 words and should also contain a hi-res photo of artwork to accompany it. Submissions can be emailed to the Editor-in-Chief at somersetstudio@stampington.com.
  • New Takes on Old Techniques
    There are some great mixed-media techniques out there that aren’t being used anymore now that they are older. Somerset Studio is always looking for new takes on older techniques. Have you found a new way to do an image transfer? A new purpose for embossing powder? It’s time to brush off some of those old supplies and get to work! All submission samples should be sent to the Editor-in-Chief as outlined in our Submission Guidelines.
