Contributor and Columnist Call for Unruly PaperArts

That's right! We have a call on for Contributors for the new blogozine, Unruly PaperArts! With all of the fantastically imaginative and creative Gingersnappers out there, I thought you might want more information.

Unruly PaperArts will include articles and tutorials for all crafting levels in a variety of different styles and formats. Our features will range from step-by-step projects to technique tutorials to reviews to design concepts and more. As the blogozine title suggests, our main focus will be on the experience and exploration of papercraft and mixed media rather than any staid instruction manual. Inspiration and imagination will be our hallmarks with a little edgy attitude thrown in for good measure. We are Unruly after all!

Each issue, we will be featuring up to 5 guest contributors! Share your fabulous projects with our readers!
