Welcome to our January 2016 Photo Competition!
Our Artizan Made contests are a regular event on our site with a new contest starting on the 15th of every month. We are now doing a series focused on colors, where the dominant color of the image is the contest theme. Sign up to get our blog posts by email (on the sidebar) if you would like to be notified when the next one goes live. See the past ones here: Photo Contests.
This contest’s theme has to have something handmade in the image and the dominant color of the image needs to be white.
Vintage is allowed.

and then scroll down to the contest area.
You are allowed to photoshop your image and make it into art. In other words, you can manipulate the photo in any way you want, but the dominant color of the photo needs to be white, showing something handmade. No collages. (Image needs to be one seamless image.)
1200 pixels square, saved as a jpeg at 72 dpi.
Please make your image square! Images are cropped to a square automatically, so you might lose important visual info if it is a rectangle.
- Anyone is welcome to participate. Each participant can submit two photos.
- You must have the right to the photos you post. (Ex: If you did not take the photo, you must have permission from the photographer to use it, unless you are using a copyright free image to manipulate a photo.) Show off YOUR work!
- We retain the right to delete any photo that is poorly done or inappropriate for a family audience. Please note the size of the image. We will delete blurry and poorly cropped images. Make it nice!
- After submitting the photo, it will be held for approval and then posted on this page.
- There is a text field for a one liner when you submit. You can add more text to the image on Facebook once we post it there.
- Submissions will be added several times a day to this album on our Facebook page: ArtizanMade

Quickview All Products, Home and Office, Art Dolls and Creatures, Sculpture, Niche, Kids, Decorative, Felt, Elements, Animals, White, Materials, Fiber, Wool, Method, Felted, Provenance, AsiaMini needle felted sculptures are great pieces for Bully lovers and collectors! My needle felted Bull Terrier is 7" tall x 4" wide x 4" deep, he has a polymer clay nose and glass eyes; his legs are bendable. These sculptures are collectible items, they are one of a kind pieces that are wonderful for dog lovers or as a memento of a beloved pet. You can request a made to order sculpture of your own pet, e-mail me for details: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can read more about Bully breed dogs on my blog at:http.www.lauraleeburch I love the medium of wool for needle felted sculpture; you can achieve very fine details by needle felting and you can mix the wool with embroidery, sewing, beading etc. which makes it very visually interesting. Each animal is handmade; each dog takes 10-15 hours minimally to create; the dogs are needle felted from wool, this dog has glass eyes, a leather collar. I adore animals and I hope to educate and bring attention to particular animal causes (animal rescue and fundraising). *Needle felting is meshing raw wool together with a specially barbed needle by repeatedly stabbing the wool with the needle. The wool binds together to create very strong forms. These sculptures are not toys. *To protect and keep your needle felted sculpture looking its best I recommend placing the sculpture under a glass or plexiglass covering. A covering will protect the wool from dust and prevent admirers from touching the sculpture which will eventually make the wool become slightly fuzzy.$185.00 Shop: Laura Lee Burch
