Arts and Stuff Carnival - July 12, 2007

Welcome to the July 12, 2007 edition of arts and stuff carnival.

I would love to see more 2D artists submitting to this Carnival that relate more to my own blog. It is a chance to see your articles/posts published and gain more exposure. It isn't hard to do and when you give it a go you will realise how quick and easy it is to do.

So come on, have you a watercolour, oil, pastel, pencil or any other medium that you would like to talk about, perhaps with advice, works in Progress or what you have learnt that you could share with us. There is so much out there that you artist are already writing about, Carnivals are about sharing it with a community that otherwise may never get to see your work or your blog for that matter.

If you would like to submit an article my next edition deadline is 12 August 2007 and will be published 14 August 2007.

Click for carnival submission form and see how easy it is.

Vyoma presents How To Paint Tomato posted at KalaaLog, saying,

"The tutorial walks through the simple process of creating a digital painting of a tomato, from scratch. The tomato, in spite of being a simple subject, provides a beginner with a bright color to play around with light. With this tutorial, and a raster graphics editor like Photoshop or GIMP, you should be able to create a painting of tomato."

Thanks for accepting my carnival posts. :)

Susan Borgas said...

Your very welcome Vyoma. :D

I have added a digital Art category for the next carnival, which will make it that much easier for the digi artists to submit to my carnival. I hope to see yours and anyone else that may like to submit to this category. Cheers!

Samir said...

Thanks for the link Susan.

The Digital Art category is a good idea, and I am looking forward to that. Thank you for taking the effort for putting this together regularly.

Susan Borgas said...

Your welcome Samir and thanks for contributing.

therapydoc said...

Thanks for including me. This is a great idea for a blog.

Hi Susan,

I am still a little confused what this is about .. I have opened up some of the links in your first paragraphs to the Carnival stuff, but I don't have time to look right now.

Is today the Carnival? Is the list today the Carnival? So if I wanted to submit for August, then I would fill out the form and you would (IF you chose me) put a sentence and link about me?

Am I maybe getting it after all? Thank you,

~ Diane Clancy

Susan Borgas said...

Your welcome therapydoc!

Diane yes this post is the Carnival. Think of it as a newspaper and I am the editor. You or anyone else that submits a story are the contributors to my newspaper. Blog Carnival's homepage can be found at

I just did a test without being logged into my Carnival account to make sure that anyone that submits to my Carnival does not have to register at Blog Carnival. This is correct; you do not have to register with Blog Carnival to participate in my Carnival.

If anyone would like to submit a post just make sure you use the 'Permalink URL' address for the post, not your blog index page when submitting to a Carnival.

When viewing the form to submit a post you will see a 'Category' drop down menu. Do choose a category that best suits your blog post.

Also in the Remarks box do write a brief blurb there that I will use to quote you. What you put in there is very important because it will be what encourages visitors to click on your link so that they can read more about what you have to say. If you don't catch my visitors attention with what you say in that remarks box, they more than likely will not follow that link.

Vyoma said...

@Susan - Yay for the Digital Art section!

I mean - I love the other mediums. I worked on water colors for sometime and have done a bit of oil painting.

But being a hobbyist, I find digital paintings much easier in terms of scheduling and a chance to satiate my muse.

@Samir - Good to meet you. Hope we bump into each other again!

Susan Borgas said...

Thought the Digital Art section might be a hit..LOL

I like to play around with digital art myself but nothing serious enough to want me to post it on my blog although I do appreciate those that do come up with good work using the digital medium. :D

harriett said...

Thanks Susan for including me in the Carnival!!!!!

dianeclancy said...

I am going to pass this on to a couple of friends who I think write dynamite posts.

Vyoma said...

Susan Borgas said...
