Artella's New Creative T.W.I.S.T.S.!

Welcome to Artella's Creative TWISTS!


"Creative TWIST" challenges are creative projects for you to use to get your creative juices flowing! Send your projects to us, and we will photograph and publish selected submissions in our regular Creative TWIST Galleries in e-Artella issues.

So far we've hosted the Altoid Art Doll Challenge (to be featured in the next print issue!), and Magical Mini-Quilts!

Our 3rd Creative TWIST is the
"Self Portrait ATC Challenge"!

ATC stands for "Artist Trading Card" and we're using this fun format to give you a canvas to create your own Self Portrait.

All you need to do to get started is to grab a piece of cardstock that is 2.5" x 3.5", or a playing card, and create a Self Portrait using the card as your canvas. Use your choice of medium: watercolor, collage, fabric, sequins, buttons -- go wild!

We must receive your entry by September 1.

Please send to:
ATTN: September TWIST
PO Box 44418
Kamuela, HI 96743
United States

If you want your item returned, please include EITHER a SASE, or sufficient postage in the form of well-disguised cash or a check made out to "LyricWings" (NOT Artella).

Please join us! This third Creative TWIST won't be the same if we don't see what YOU have to create!
