Creative Craft Challenge: Tsumami KanzashiSuggested by Cayca
Hello everybody! I've got one last submission to this month's challenge to share with you:
Beautiful! Well, I'll see you all next week with a new challenge for September/October!
Another beautiful submission to this challenge, check it out:
Next week will be the last for this challenge, and then we'll have a new challenge for September/October! See you next week!
Hi! We have a few new submissions to the challenge this week, another fun and unusual use of tsumami kanzashi: eyepatches! You all are so creative, I love it!
Also, I noticed a few tsumami kanzashi that were submitted to the gallery folders but not the favorites folder for the Challenge, so here's just a friendly reminder that it doesn't count for the Challenge unless it's in the favorites gallery (but it can be in both, so fear not- you don't have to choose between them!).
Anyways, see you all next week!
How do you deal with haters?I got this as a question on my Tumblr, and I felt I could share my thoughts here as well because it seems it's something a lot of people can relate to. I hope this comes to helpful to any of you guys reading.More Like This
I’m certain there are people who dislike me. Some I come to know through whisperings because I have eyes everyyyyywheeeeere.
However, I don’t feel the need to acknowledge them or do anything about it unless they are causing any real harm, especially to people I care about.
There is a popular quote that I like referencing for this topic, which gets the message across in a charming way:
“You can be a juicy, ripe peach and there’s still going to be someone who doesn’t like peaches, so you can either submit to someone’s criticism of you, or you can get on with the business of being your own amazing self who attracts other like-minded people that appreciat

How to get noticed on deviantART!:faq56:More Like This
I've had many people ask me this question so I'm going to elaborate the best I can.
As the FAQ above states, to get far on deviantART you HAVE to give feedback to get it. It's almost virtually impossible for you to get noticed without doing any of that. I learned that after a year of being here.
This is something that you will have to do in your dA lifetime in order to find your inspirations and be able to learn new techniques. When on the front page of deviantART it's probably the most diverse amount of artwork you'll see! Ranging from pixels to sculptures, tattoos to anime to poems, there has to be at least one that can catch your eye! There are millions of deviants here and even more submissions! Try searching for artworks that please you. You can even have a randomized search by using stuff like the random d

Who hasn't heard of myths or legend of the past ? who hasn't wondered if they were real or just a story to put kids to sleep ? Who hasn't had an interest as slight as it may have been in those stories that populated ancient civilizations and are still alive today ?
In the past years people have started asking themselves questions at the light of new discoveries and the gaps in the classical history taught to us. To many questions stay unanswered and we are left to choose between believing or laughing at those records from an ancient time.

August Arts and Health Challenge: JoyHi everyone,More Like This
We are opening a new month on a positive note; the challenge theme for August will be Joy. Living with a health condition (or caring for others who do) does not have to be all doom-and-gloom! What are the things that bring you joy, even amid the darkness?
Joy is essential to life. Researchers have shown that, generally speaking, people who have more joy in their lives tend also to be healthier. Sometimes in life, it is too easy to forget to take a moment and drink in something that makes us joyful. It is medicine in and of itself.
Your entries to this challenge should focus on the theme, "JOY."
Here are the rules:
You can enter as many times as you want, but you must be a member of Arts-and-Health to participate.
The admins and/or guests will choose one winner to receive a three-month subscription-- something large enough to be rewarding but not so large that it is coercive.
We will judge based on, "Which piece moved us the most?"
Beyond Boundaries: Contest THEME!Hi everyone,More Like This
I hope your team collaborations are going splendidly! You are about halfway through the competition! Congratulations on making it this far.
Today marks the start of Week 5, and it's time to reveal the theme for your contest photomanipulation entry!
The theme is . . .
One Moment in Time
I left this theme vague intentionally.
Basically, your deviation can be a snapshot of an historical time period, OR it can represent a moment in someone's own life (now) that really stands out. It can be a good memory or a bad memory, nice or scary. It can be anything you want as long as TIME is represented somehow (figuratively or literally).
Also, in your artist's comments when you submit, please write one sentence describing the moment in time that inspired you to create this deviation.
As a reminder:
You must already be a member of this competition to join this part of the contest.

The Creative Craft Challenge is a monthly feature where we introduce our members to different crafts. Every month I’ll give you a little background on a craft that you might not have heard of and show you a few great tutorials to encourage you to give it a try and show us your work.
So join me every month and put your skills and creativity to the test with lessons and tutorials, examples, and a place to show off your work. Your submissions will be featured in our favorites gallery and in this very blog!
Remember, the aim of the challenge is to introduce you to crafts that you might not have heard about or tried before. They won't require any expensive materials or years of training and expertise to complete. The idea is to challenge you to go out of your usual field of work and try something new!
This challenge is NOT a contest or a display of professional work, but a fun opportunity to broaden your crafting h
