Featuring: Your Art Journal!

Do you want to see your art journal page in print? I’m putting together a special Art Journaling Showcase for the Summer 2021 Edition of the Creatopia™ Collection magazine and would love to include your work. You’ll get to see your work highlighted in a beautiful magazine collection with full credit for your featured art. All credit lines will be directly adjacent to the art and you can even include a link to your site or social if you’d like.

The only requirement is that your page be in keeping with the theme (see the sample board and description below) and that you submit it via this submission form with the relevant information filled in.

What you need to fill in the form and submit your work: A clear, well-lit, in focus picture of your page that is square and fills most of the frame. Submit it as a jpg for the artwork AND the headshot if you don’t have one. Copy and paste this as the bio field if you don’t have one: Art Journal page submission for Summer 2021 Magazine from the Art Journaling for Beginners Group. If you have a bio and head-shot, feel free to include them, however, they may not appear due to space limitations.

Theme Information:

The theme of this issue is “Lazy Lake Days”, and the feature color is rich azure blue with a secondary accent of golden yellow. In this issue, we’re savoring the feelings of warmth and ease and gentle nostalgia that the golden days and soft nights of summer bring. We want to know what moves you about the summer season: fireflies, campfires, the scent of summer blooms, the sound of crickets, the bounty of summer garden plots and more! This edition is all about the sweetness of summer. Be sure to check our sample board for more inspiration.
