WE ARE NOW IN PRINT!!!!
Submission Call for Aug/Sept 2012
Do you love to color or paint on all your projects? Do you get comments on your manicure only to look down and see that it's really ink and paint from your crafty adventures? Is your passion for all things colorful so powerful that you have no idea how to make a project without a colored image? If you said yes to any of these, then you NEED to submit to our second submission call here at Designed To Color!
With almost 8000 views on our second issue, you are sure to get your love of coloring out in the public eye!
In every issue, we provide a sketch for you to have fun and play around with! Remember, just b/c you see squares and other elements does not mean you have to copy them completely. Have fun and come up with your own design based on this sketch!
Tangerine Tango is the color of the year according to Patone. We want to see your amazing tangerine/orange creations! Your project does not need to be monochromatic but tangerine/orange needs to be prominent.
Fabric isn’t just for sewing you know. You can add it to all kinds of fun crafts! We want to see how you can incorporate fabric into your projects.
From an adorable deer to a spunky squirrel, we would love see your critter cards! Incorporate a critter somewhere on your project; it could be the image you color or cute critter paper. It’s up to you how you show off your critters!
The mark of summer’s end is when the kiddos go back to school. You start to see the school bus in the morning drive, the laughter of children during the midday is no longer and the air gets a little cooler. We would love to see you show off your Back To School Style!
So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye
It’s so hard to say goodbye, but with a cute card it might make that goodbye just a little bit better. Show us your gorgeous goodbye/farewell cards.
Have something to Say?
We want to hear from YOU! Dear DTC is a column that is for our readers. You can ask anything that you have always wanted to know. From what goes into making an issue to how a coloring technique is done. You can even just drop us a line to let us know how great we are doing!
Inspired By DTC
Have you seen a project in our previous issues that totally screamed MAKE ME!? We want to see how DTC has inspired you! Submit your projects along with a description (page number, project title, artist) and you just might see your very own project in our next issue! Now you can inspire others as well!
We are looking for it all - Copics, Promarkers, Water Colors, Pencils, Distress Inks, Bic Markers, Stampin' Up markers, crayons, etc.!!!! This is the open portion of our call, didn't make something for one of the categories above, no worries, you can submit it here, just tell us what you used.
Before submitting, please take a look at these guidelines
