Christmas Magic, All Year 'Round

Christmas Magic, All Year 'Round

Dear Artists,
Because Christmas time is such a warm and beautiful time on Polyvore, with some of the most fabulous sets of the year being created, some of us got the idea to create a group to celebrate the Sharing, Magic, Love and Joy of the season ONCE PER MONTH, every month! Trish will be our lead host and determine when and how long the contests will be. I'm still here to make suggestions. :-)
Hosted by Judy @judymjohnson and new host Trish @itsablngthing an accomplished artist and group host on Polyvore. We thank Amy and Toni for help in the beginning. Love, Trish with a wee bit of help from Judy

That One Item

That One Item

Each contest will be based around one specific featured item that must be used in each entry submitted.These items will be items that I really like and want to see how you would create a set with it.

Fun Fashion

Fun Fashion

Creative, colorful and artistic Fun Fashions! We are going to start allowing a variety of fashion styles, including full fashion sets, big photo sets, outfits only, dolls, etc. So that we have a variety to appeal to all of members. Not all contests will have all styles, so please check the rules for each contest for the fashion styles allowed for that contest. Please no swearing, cigarettes, drugs, nudity. Thanks.

Retail Display

Retail Display

We are a Retail Display Group. Fashion and home sets must be arranged as a vignette in a store, in a display store window or a plan on a mood board.
Our main theme is "Deep River Mall"
Imagine a town called "Deep River"
It has a nostalgic mall in an old industrial building located on the banks of Deep River. There is also an old train station located next to the mall. Listen carefully, as you make your sets. You may hear an old time train whistle.
 
Each contest will have a theme and may at different times be store windows, shop space inside/outside or a mood board.

NO: swearing, nudity of any kind, violence, smoking, drugs, guns or advertisements.
 
Visualize a beautiful retail shopping experience and have fun!

The Unexpected

The Unexpected

I wish to offer design challenges that will inspire you to dig into your creative resevoirs to come up with something out-of-the-ordinary; A different way of using "items"/design elements. I look for generally uplifting or neutral art.
Please, no dark, violent, evil submissions! NOR ones with a lot of fire. Thank You!
Since March 2014
 
PS: Here's a tip: I look for neat edges on cut-out elements, and filled in holes (white inserted in the back) when the holes are obviously not left for design effect. A beautiful design can move out of a winning spot if it appears sloppy.
 
Another tip: Because of a terrifying event in my youth when I witnessed my dad nearly die on fire, I can hardly bear to look at designs with fire surrounding a figure. PLEASE don't send them to my contests. A recent one just made my heart race. Not fun. So, PLEASE, no sets with people & fire or fire design dresses. They scare me. (campfire. fireplace, candles are OK) THANK YOU!
