see step by step examples of cards I have done with this technique
go to the Magazine
Background Collage Techniques Page.
sections from magazines as a background is one of my favorite techniques
and the one I seem to get the most "positive" comments
on. It works especially well when you feel stuck or blocked because
the card already has a strong starting point.
final drawing is April 17th..so all completed cards received by
April 16th will qualify for the final drawing. See the schedulle
of drawings below.
If you have already ordered the backgrounds finish
2 or more of the cards in any way your imagination leads you and
mail them to: Bmuse-MBC, 1528 Ninth Street, Unit F, Alameda CA 94501.
Please include your email address so I can notify you when your
cards have arrived and so that I may contact you should you win
one of the weekly drawings. You may enter as many times as you wish,
for every two cards received your name goes in the drawing for that
week to win Bmuse products.
images below are typical samples of the Magazine Background Artist
Trading Cards. The background image is permanently mounted to a
2.5 x 3.5 inch piece of 80# card stock. These are just samples no
two are alike and every card you receive will be unique.
- When I receive your completed cards I will email you that they
- I will mail you an equal number of cards submitted by other
artists in return.
- AND, the important part!...your name will be
entered into that week's drawing for FREE Stuff...oh, and you
can enter as many times as you wish, just send in more cards.
- Your cards, unless you specifically request otherwise, will
be added to the Magazine Background Challenge Gallery Page.
- Schedule and Prizes
will be announced and notified the Sunday following each drawing.
addition the winner of each drawing will be given the option of
getting FREE SHIPPING if they place an order that ships with their
prize. For players outside the US. I will compensate you the amount
it would be to ship in the US and just charge any additional amounts.
