Art Trader Issue 4 Available

The Autumn issue of Art Trader is now available to download for FREE :) The link to get your copy in pdf format is:

Congratulations to Kristy for making the front cover with her gorgeous journal page. I love this issue a lot! Theres lots of gorgeous eye candy and some techniques to peruse in this issue which is a bumper 57 pages long!

I love the feature on tree themed art - so perfect for this time of the year. Also check out the cool background technique using the ever humble wax crayon :) The article I'll get the most use from will be the drawing whimsy style for those of us who cant draw! Fantastic tutorial showing you how to draw in step by step pictures :) The article on Creating Darker Art is another favourite of mine too...I could go on and on as I love this magazine - but I wont because I want to save some surprises for you too :)

In all this is a brilliant magazine which in my opinion knocks the socks off all of the current UK craft and card making magazines which they have the cheek to charge you for! Sorry I dont see the point of paying over £3 to be talked down to and patronised with peel off and sticker projects!
