Show me your best craft!

Tue Apr 9, 2013, 11:16 AM
UPDATE: Wow we received a lot more entries than we expected! We're really sorry we couldn't include them all, we made our best with the limitations that dA sets for icons. Maybe we could do this again and change the icon with the seasons or special events, that would be fun! It was very inspiring and encouraging to learn what piece you're most proud of and why, it was a great learning experience and we loved meeting you all a bit better :D anyway, here's the finished piece!

Thank you all, and we're really sorry we couldn't include you all :heart: it doesn't mean your work is not great! They weren't chosen based on quality alone, we tired to show off as many crafts as possible and pick the ones that looked better on a small scale. I will make another journal with credits to the images we used :D

Please don't forget to join the group if you haven't yet, many great events are on the way :D

Old post:

I have some good news, and I'm pretty excited about them :D

maytel and I decided to create a Community Relations group for Artisan Crafts. Our plan is to concentrate all news, happenings, events, contests, and such in one place so that you don't have to jump from one place to another. The group will be passed along to all future Artisan Crafts Community Volunteers, so it will forever be THE place to find out all the official Artisan Crafts news and events.

The group was created just minutes ago, so it's a bit rough. Feel free to join while we put everything together: CRArtisanCrafts

So now, we want to create an icon! For that we want YOU to be part of it! Post a link to your best crafty work here, whatever you're most proud of. We will pick some that we think best represent the beautiful Artisan Crafts world, and put them together to create our official icon. Please make sure you're okay with us using your image for the icon, your work will be credited but you will not receive any compensation other than the promotion.

We're so excited we could explode :iconexplodelaplz: we have many plans and great ideas coming!

i love the diversity on the icon :D This community is going to be great! :D

I think chancing the icon from time to time is an amazing idea :D This way everyone can participate in the icon without felling excluded

One of my own personal favorites is these [link]. I'm really happy how cute they turned out to be ^^ especially the octopus, and I was so happy with my idea to put them in bathtubs and use liquid clay as water, and that actually turned out good! ^^

Other deviations might have more faves, so I guess they might be better, but I love this one because it's my very own design: [link]

More faves doesn't always mean better, people like things for mysterious reasons :slow: I think that something that is your own design is 10000 times better :D
