:bulletgreen: We have made some changes to the group rules. Please, take your time to read and understand them… The biggest change is that deviations that belong elsewhere will no longer be accepted to the Miscellaneous folder. We'd like that place to remain for items that don't belong to some other folder of the group. We have also made it clearer what does and doesn't belong to the Tutorials folder. Remember, if it isn't on dA then it isn't a deviation and therefore can't be accepted to the group. It isn't in the rules, but I'd like to ask our lovely polymer clay artists not to submit pieces to the Glass, Ceramics and Clay folder, but either to the Polymer Clay folder or to another suitable folder.
We are here to help if you are unsure where your piece belongs to so feel free to ask us in a note before you submit the piece. Remember, every submission goes to your monthly total, whether it was accepted, declined or withdrawn.

Weekly Gallery Highlight

We decided to highlight some of the best submissions to the group gallery every week. I'll go with 25 featured submissions per week. This selection is purely subjective and represents my favorite submissions to our galleries. If you disagree with my selection, please feel free to go to our galleries and :+fav: any deviation you enjoy, artists also appreciate comments on their works! Spread the love! :dalove:

Again, this was a selection of my favorite submissions and does not represent a qualitative or artistic evaluation!

If you would like to help the group by writing features such as this or anything else, please get in touch with me via note to the group and let me know what you would like to contribute and how often (for example a weekly feature of 20 deviations from the group galleries or a monthly article written about something craft related). We are always looking for fresh blood. :D

Thank you for letting us know about your new feature. It will be added to the next week's journal.
While I do understand how thumbnails might look more appealing, they'd make the journal look cluttered because we feature so many of them, journal would take longer to load and they'd take attention away from the gallery highlights.
