Cloth Paper Scissors is without a doubt the BEST magazine out there for mixed media artists. The magazine articles are beautifully done; lots of "how-to's"; easy to understand directions and dynamite photos.
Bravo to the folks at Quilting Arts, LLC, for another wonderful magazine! As with the inspiring Quilting Arts Magazine, Cloth/Paper/Scissors is filled with well-organized information about techniques, interesting articles about artists, etc., all beautifully photographed on quality paper. Well done!
This is a great zine to have if you love art, like to look at art, want to learn how to do the art--or just love mixed media art, paper art, or sewing projects, etc. You cannot go wrong. It is beautifully photographed, well organized and just special. I love this magazine so much I have kept every issue and refer to them often. You will too.
Cloth Paper Scissors is a beautiful full color magazine that can inspire and excite an individual to create their own works of art. The magazine is published six times per year, and covers a wide range of doable projects for mixed media enthusiasts.
The January/February 2008 issue included projects with scrap wood and paint, the joys of blogging, how to paint an art apron, and painting a gouache resist gelatin print.
The samples are professional and artistic, and a stong goal to strive for in your art work. Enjoyable to look at and read!
I can't wait until the next issue!!!
Just when I was feeling low in my "creative mind" someone gave me C/P/S for Christmas! wow! I want to subscribe. So many new ideas or new ways of doing things I had thought about but couldn't figure out--like rusting things. My January will be filled with days of "play" and new techniques for my collage work. l.Sue Smith, Artist, St. Louis, MO
Working in paper mediums (photography, collage, paper sculpturals) I was happy to stumble upon this magazine last year. You will find articles and featured artists - primarily focusing on the media arts in the magazine's title. Consistently, this has been a source for both visual and written inspiration, and sometimes, direction and art-making sparks.
Though the subscription price may be restrictive for some ('tis a bit pricey for the amount of issues per subscription), it's worth a look!
Checked out mag site and cost is about the same as here as of 10/2009
