We welcome reader submissions for upcoming issues of the Artisan Notebook. Our scrapbook layouts mix a variety of skills and design concepts; they combine the skill of photography, the artistry of visual design and the poetry of language. This month we are taking an in-depth look at how we incorporate language-words-into our layouts to tell our stories in creative ways. We are looking for layouts of exceptional merit that include meaningful journaling or use words to tell stories and express ideas in unique and fun ways. Show us your best layouts that use illustrated words, art journaling, and expressive journaling to tell your stories and express your ideas. Those scrapbook artists whose layouts are chosen for publication will receive a complementary one month membership to the Digital Scrapbook Artisan Guild.
September 2012 THEME:
“Words, words, wonderful words!” Creating layouts that use creative journaling and illustrated words and letters to tell our stories and express ideas.
