heART Journal Magazine Giveaways!

Heart Journal Magazine

I’m very excited about the latest issue of heART Journal Magazine for 3 reasons.  First reason: White space.  I made something with lots of white space!  So much white space I think I used my entire quota of it for the next six months.  Video of the whole page and an interview too.

Second reason:  it’s a free issue of heART Journal Magazine!  Carla Devine was so kind to offer a free issue to all of you, my blog friends! Which issue?  This one!   There are directions how to redeem this at the bottom of this post – for a tablet or a pdf version!  But Carla didn’t stop there!

Third reason: she also gave me a 1 year subscription to give away to one lucky commenter!  So, leave a comment telling me what you like to read about in art magazines to be entered!  Random.org will pick the winner at midnight EST on July 21st.  Thanks to all who entered! The giveaway is now closed. Winner announced here.

    Good morning, looks like a fun magazine. I was not able to download. It asks for an acct number. Thanks

    • Carolyn July 10, 2015, 8:55 am

      just double checking did you click current subscriber when you went through the procedure? The reason I ask is when I did the process it did not ask me for a credit card. Hope this helps-Carolyn

  • Bethany July 10, 2015, 8:53 am

    I like to see lots of projects in my art magazines for inspiration.


  • Laura July 10, 2015, 9:41 am

    I usually go looking through art magazines for two things. The first is inspiration during “dry spells” and the other reason I go looking is for new techniques to try out. It’s always so fun to try something I’ve never done before.

  • Michelle V. Alkerton July 10, 2015, 9:52 am

    I love reading art magazines for new technique ideas and just to view beautiful art :). It’s always cool to see a fellow artist blogger included inside too! Congrats! Thanks for the free issue and the chance to win a subscription.
    Stay inspired!

  • Heather Goldsmith July 10, 2015, 11:44 am

    I just love looking at the gorgeous colours and layouts and featured artists. I love to read about techniques, too. I’ve never seen this magazine before, so I’m going to download it now. Very cool. 😉

  • Tracie July 10, 2015, 12:03 pm

    I love art magazines for the inspiration and seeing ways to use new (or new to me)products.

  • Wendy Harvey July 10, 2015, 12:51 pm

    Good photography is key in an art magazine. However, I’m also keen on process description, materials lists, and even glimpses into art practice and philosophy. It’s nice to know when someone got into art, how they ensure they’re practicing it daily, even where they do their art.

  • Allison CB July 10, 2015, 1:20 pm

    WOW – that is so neat! I love to look at art magazines – great inspiration!!

  • Sue Pompetti July 10, 2015, 1:22 pm

  • Mary C. Nasser July 10, 2015, 1:29 pm

    Congratulations, Carolyn!!
    Wow! A whole magazine devoted to art journaling!! Looking forward to reading and learning new techniques!

  • Rachel Thomas July 10, 2015, 1:34 pm

    Lovely gift to your followers!
    I love finding out all the ways people use different art materials, for example, Caran d’Ache Neocolour II crayons, or Dylusions sprays, or Ranger Distress Inkpads. I learn so much and stretch my repertoire a lot by getting ideas from lots of people.

  • Ebbie July 10, 2015, 1:39 pm

    I love the wonderful inspirations I get from art magazines. The color combinations that I would not explore myself suck me in every time. A bonus is when directions are included to recreate a similar beauty.

  • Jean Marmo July 10, 2015, 1:46 pm

    I love to read about how others developed in their artistry and how their work flow is.

  • Sandra L. July 10, 2015, 3:00 pm

    I always love to see the insides of people’s journals, especially the type that incorporate sketching or drawing. That said, I’m also a huge collage fan!
    Thank you very much for the freebie!

  • Mary Ann Gross July 10, 2015, 3:01 pm

    I am always excited about freeness. This looks so fun!

  • sherrie July 10, 2015, 3:01 pm

    Awesome Carolyn thank you so much and Carla too! I love getting new ideas for background colors. When I paint etc in my journals I just freeze up when it comes to picking colors to use and then it looks like a child did some scribbling. Anyway, this sounds fabulous!

  • Joan Setree July 10, 2015, 3:03 pm

    I love to look at how others use various color combinations. Always looking for new ideas and techniques.

  • Gill K July 10, 2015, 3:15 pm

    Congratulations, Carolyn, & thank you to you & Carla for your generosity. I like to read art magazines for inspiration, but really it’s the sort of inspiration that makes me think “Wow! Maybe one day, with lots of practice, I might be able to produce something as fabulous as that!”

  • Maureen Berarducci July 10, 2015, 3:34 pm

    Art magazines feed MY muse and keep me motivated to “try” to get my activities of daily living completed so I can reward myself with time to play/paint.

  • Becca Cruger July 10, 2015, 3:43 pm

    Wow! What an awesome prize! I love browsing magazines to learn about different techniques. It always astounds me how different artists will look at things through fresh perspective.

  • Judy bliss July 10, 2015, 3:50 pm

    I love to see new techniques and samples of them. I like to read about new products that I find that I absolutely have to have. I love to see new techniques and samples of them. I like to read about new products that I find that I absolutely have to

  • Jewels July 10, 2015, 4:01 pm

    Oh I love art magazines ( usually standing in B&N flipping through ’cause I can’t afford all of them). I am usually looking for inspiration and specific tips – love it when I come across something totally new I have never tried before (then I might actually buy the issue LOL)….thanks for the giveaway and congrats to you!

  • Katy Abbott July 10, 2015, 8:45 pm

  • Vicki ross July 10, 2015, 9:09 pm

  • Angela Orobko July 12, 2015, 12:56 am

    For me, inspiration in art magazines (and blog posts, too) come from: 1) seeing the works of others, 2) artists who share their process, 3) how to incorporate the latest materials into art journaling. HeART Journal Art Magazine is new to me; I deeply appreciate and look forward to perusing through July’s issue.

  • Susan Carol July 12, 2015, 5:02 am

  • Lissa July 14, 2015, 7:10 am

    I usually read magazine from cover to cover. First I read all the articles that interest me, then I read the “how to make………”, (love learning new stuff), then I read artists I know, the I devour the parts I missed. I love going back and reading magazines over and over, I get new inspiration every time! I love the feel of a magazine or book in my hand, it takes me to a special place!

  • gothbarbie July 14, 2015, 10:50 am

  • Shelly Y. July 14, 2015, 5:08 pm

    Wow, what a loaded question..What do I like to read in art magazines. If I had to choose one area, I would say I love reading about new techniques. I will never stop learning, no matter if it looks terrible, I will just keep going. I have no fear with my gelli plate at my beckon….

  • Raine July 15, 2015, 3:42 pm

    I love reading tutorials! It’s always fun to learn something new.

  • SusanJane July 16, 2015, 1:23 am

    I’m interested in seeing the art first and foremost. Second I’m interested in artists talking about their work, more the why then the how. I am soooo tired of one sales pitch after another. I hope we can have this be about art rather then product.

  • Shirley Macdougall July 17, 2015, 9:42 pm

    Carolyn you are such an inspiration, I love you easy going, accept it as it happens attitude.
