Blurred Lines Giveaway

If you are familiar with my blog, you know that I think creativity belongs to everybody. I am a big believer in blurring the lines between creative categories and having everybody play nice together.


To this end, I was invited by Allie Gower to share my thoughts and artwork in her article Blurred Lines on the Scrap n'Art online magazine.


It begins "I am all about blurred lines when it comes to bridging the gap between different creatives..." The remainder of the article can be seen in the current January 2014 issue. It is available to subscribers only but Allie was extra generous and has provided 10 one-year subscriptions for me to give away.

To be eligible to be one of the ten lucky winners, please leave a comment to this post by end of day Friday 1/24.  I will email the winners on 1/25 but be sure I have your email address so I can contact you if you have won. Good luck. And keep those lines blurred!

You rock Seth; and I love your attitude about creativity as much as I love your art. Happy New Year. Hard to believe it's been a year since I met you in NYC.

elle said...

i agree everyone is creative and can express it. Nice give away!

Melissa T. said...

Sounds like a great article and the online magazine sounds like something I would love. Thank you for the chance to win! (snowshrew@yahoo.com)

It would be really fantastic to have an online art mag to read on my new iPad! I agree, the lines are blurring. I remember trying to talk a scrap booking store into embracing products that leaned towards mixed media in 2004. She thought I was nuts. Now it's the norm. Go figure!

Deb Merkel said...

Enjoy your work so much Seth! You are a great inspiration!

Wendy Ward said...

Discovered your blog quite a while ago and must say you really do inspire me to think outside the page! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

I love 'blurred lines'. I believe creating in ANY form is art - no matter what medium or talent you feel. It all adds a positive aspect to our world. Why differentiate? That only comes from a place of insecurity IMHO. Art is art. :)

I think that there is a lot to learn from one another. In my book artists' group (we make handmade artist books) we have members from 7 different backgrounds and I think that's what adds to the richness of our group. One is a miniature artist, one a ceramicist, one a photographer, one an oil painter, one started out making stamps from linoleum blocks, one a collage artist, one is a scrapbooker. We have all come together to make artist books yet continue in our other areas of interest which we also use in making our books. I have learned so much from these women and are so thankful for the part they play in my creative journey. Thanks for the chance to win the online subscription. Should I be one of the lucky winners, I can be reached at bkisrael@gmail.com.

Nina Clark said...

I love your work, and I love following your process!

Lisa said...

Thanks so much Allie and Seth! What a generous giveaway. Your article sounds very interesting.

Ruth L said...

I'd like to read your article Seth, hope you're gonna put it online later, maybe in february... :-)

Martice Smith II said...

Yes!! That's what the joy of being an artist / creator is all about! I believe the process is much more enjoyable when there are people who reach out to encourage and HELP others and not stay within their own clique, so to speak. Being an artist is not for a few elite- everyone is an artist! The very fact that you are here is a manifestation of that. Don't be afraid to express what your uniqueness is. Have fun with it :) Seth, thanks for the chance to win!!

Nan G said...

Would love to read your article and win a subscription. Thank you Allie and Seth.

Robyn Wood said...

That is an interesting thought Seth, especially as many crafters cross over into different crafts during their creative journey. I'd love to read the full article so thanks for giving us a chance at a sub! (robynwood at fastmail dot com dot au)

Anita Houston said...

What a give away!!!! I love what you've written here too...very true! I want to read the rest of your thoughts!

Lin Collette said...

Thanks so much for offering this opportunity. I"m all about blurred lines - I think that all creatives - visual artists, musicians, etc -- can find ways to blur the lines between their different areas, just as visual artists should be able to work together even if their materials, styles, etc don't normally 'speak' to each other. There's room for collaboration in all things. Why can't we blur the lines?
And yes, I'd like to enter the contest - my email address is lincolletteri@aol.com

I love the idea of blurred lines. We are all creative souls and in your words "if we all play nice" we can blur into one beautiful, creative, awesome breath!

Gina Shillitani said...

This magazine sounds intriguing! I'd love to win a subscription! Thanks for all you do :)

Jo Murray said...

There has always been a grey area between the many creative disciplines. I like 'crossover' work that encompasses a little of various techniques....rather like your stuff Seth.

Parabolic Muse said...

I'm so anti-elitist when it comes to genres of art, styles of art, art practice, art sharing. I do cling to my elitism with regard to always wanting people to do the very best of whatever they do. To work at it. And when people strive for the best, the blurring of lines is even more important!

gerry s said...

first visit here, and would love to win a subscription. Newly found desire for creating :)

Laura Strack said...

I would love to continue reading the rest of the article(s) in this wonderful magazine. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

I will also throw my hat into the ring for this great give away. Thanks Seth. You have my email.

queenb2u said...

I agree, everyone is creative. Keep those lines blurred. I'd love to win in this give-away.

Judy Ludovise said...

Art takes me to a place where there are no lines. Blurred or clear. I came to it later on in life, but now, in my 50's, I do not know what I would do without it.

Jessica said...

I love that you encourage blurring the lines. I'm a mixed media artist but didn't realize it at first. I was just an artist that also enjoyed scrap booking. The 2 worlds collided amongst my creativity and I went with it, I didn't worry about rules or lines or any standard definition of what Art was suppose to be. I just created. Thank you.

angi eharis said...

Wow, Seth, you have been busy! Congratulations on all the new directions. I bet it was great to get out of the cold for a few days. Please add me to the list to try for the subscription. It sounds like a fun magazine. Best of everything in 2014.

We all have something to offer and everyone is able to creatively add to the world. Thanks for a chance!

hollyllama said...

Cool, Seth! I've never heard of that magazine, so I'm curious to check it out! (hollykreag@yahoo.com)

Natalie said...

I'd love an opportunity to check out this magazine, particularly with your work in it, love your blog

CraftyViolet said...

I totally agree. Art is so personal and what art is to one person, is not to another. I love to experiment with different mediums as well. I have not heard of that magazine but options are limited in the small city I live in. It sounds like the type of magazine I would enjoy and I would love to win.

Linda Ledbetter said...

I spent so many years (um...okay, decades) believing that because i can't draw or paint in the "traditional" sense, I had no right to consider myself artistic. It was so amazing and freeing and awesome when i finally began to realize that art is much bigger and far more inclusive than that. Art and creativity are for everyone, and we need talented people with generous spirits to remind us of that. Thanks for being one of them, Seth!
