Melody Time


Welcome to my blog hop. Everyday from April 2nd through April 12th I will link to a different blog as part of my celebration of the release of my book The Pulse of Mixed Media: Secrets and Passions of 100 Artists Revealed. There will be book reviews, personal thoughts, and giveaways. And every blogger along the way will become part of the book, as they will also post their own responses to their choice of survey questions from the book. You too can be part of The Pulse by responding to my open call for art!

And on each day of the blog hop, I will also be sharing something extra. And today is an extra you will not want to pass by!


Today we visit Melody Nunez on the blog hop. Melody is an artist, photographer and writer who creates wonderful journals, collages and mixed media pieces. Even if you don't think that you are familiar with Melody and her artwork, you probably are. Her words and work have been seen in many Stampington publications since 2003. And she is a member of the design team at Crescendoh.com. As you dig deep into her blog, you will see that Melody is one generous person as well: whether it is sharing a tutorial or volunteer teaching journaling to disadvantaged school children. Today her generosity is evident as host of a giveaway for a copy of The Pulse of Mixed Media. Head on over here to read all about it!

-------------------------------


Still not sure if you want to submit artwork for my open call? Read about the details here. The deadline for mailing is 4/31, so there is still plenty of time. This call is open to everybody, regardless of level of experience. Every submission will be posted on my blog.

To all those of you who are on the fence, ...I say:

Take a chance. I'm tempted. My blog roll is not the only thing that has increased with following you. I have had an AHA! moment that is going to move me ahead leaps and bounds, Seth. Thank you so much for all you do to encourage us.

Went to my favorite bookshop in SF over holiday ... Picked up the PoMM.
Really and truly, quite an accomplishment! Also, so nice to 'see' so many friends! Thanks for being you! -J

Seth, so far I have THREE completed works of art inside of my head. My fingers now need to do the 'walking' for me. I'll aim to complete just one piece. *smiles* Norma

I've got 3, 5 x 5's ready to go, and ideas for 2 of them percolating inside my brain. Time to hit the studio and get hands-on!

Didn't realize until after leaving the comment, above, that this was also the spot to comment on Melody's blog. I've been subscribed to her blog for awhile now, and love the wonderful variety in the topics she covers, twice-weekly. Very much enjoyed her answer to the question "Is creativity built-in, learned, or both?" She talks about the fact that no matter the 'creative quotient' you're born with, unless you "devote the time, make the effort. . .," and work to . . ."make creating a regular practice", you, likely, will not learn to develop, and grow, your abilities in creative expression. Thanks for including Melody in your blog hop, Seth!

Oh! Gosh! This sounds like so much fun! I will try, try, try to send in my 'entry' by the deadline. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to support the entire online arts/and crafts community. And I need to buy your book!

Wow, I love the composition and details of this "chance."

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Sorry, didn't realize this was where I needed to write something about Melody. I guess that's a problem when you are late visiting.

I was delighted to see the "chance" to be a part of your open call, but sad that there were so many rules and conditions to sign up for your book at her sight.

Thank you for pointing me to so many mixed media artists I haven't seen before. I am enjoying checking out your links. Lots of inspiration!
