Artists Toolbox - Round Up!
Huge thanks to everybody who took part in the second week of 'The Artists Toolbox.' Each article was fantastic and well constructed, bringing a great week full of educational material. If you're interested in talking about the tools you use to create your art then note me Kaz-D (https://www.deviantart.com/kaz-d) as we'll be back in a few weeks time with Week Three! Here's a roundup of all the awesome people who took part this week - and their articles... neurotype (https://www.deviantart.com/neurotype)'s Scrivener Tools.

June Artisan Crafts Monthly Challenge [+ winners]!
The winners for June are: Dark-Lioncourt (https://www.deviantart.com/dark-lioncourt)'s T-Rexbook and MassoGeppetto (https://www.deviantart.com/massogeppetto)'s Neolithic Pendant :clap: Hello beautiful crafters. It's time to get out your cameras, your crafty tools and get ready for another Artisan Craft Challenge! The poll was a close one, but "Prehistory" pipped them all at the post to snatch a modern day victory. Since this question has been asked already I'll clarify here for everyone: the definition of Prehistory is up to you and how you interpret it. Let your imagination flow and show us what prehistory means to you. But how do I enter, you ask? I'm glad you asked. Here's the official challenge rules: Theme Pre

Hidee-ho deviants!
We thought we should do something special for projecteducate's two weeks of Artisan Crafts Educational Extravaganza and since everyone loves contests, we know this will be a great opportunity to inspire you to make crafts. 

THE CHALLENGE

Create by recycling, reusing or up-cycling something that you already have at home. Don't buy anything new for this, the goal is to use things you already have laying around and come up with something crafty!
Please include a description of the recycled materials you used for the transformation, sometimes it's obvious but we still want to know :)

RULES
If your entry does not follow these, it will be automatically disqualified
  • Artisan Crafts only!
  • Submit to the Contest folder
  • One submission per deviant
  • In your artist comment box please write that your entry "was created for the recycling and reusing contest at projecteducate".
  • Include a description of the recycled materials you used for the transformation

PRIZES
  • 1st place: 1 year subscription and 2000 :points: 
  • 2nd place: 6 month subscription and 1000 :points:
  • 3rd place: 3 month subscription and 500 :points:

DEADLINE
The entry must be new and submitted between August 19th and September 16th.

JUDGING
The current CVs of Artisan Crafts will be judging the entries.

OMG, OMG, OMG, thank you! la-hyperwave I think I've fainted.  I've been close to throwing everything of that project through the windor, I've cut my finger and went mad for like ten times over it, so I'm sooo happy it has won :) Thank you! :squee:

All entries were great, I was sure the amonite pendat from 3rd place will win :)
