Here at Quilting Arts/ Cloth Paper Scissors headquarters, we have been holding our collective breath for a while now, anxiously awaiting the arrival of….drum roll…
Many moons ago, our features editor, Cate Coulacos Prato, did us proud when she rallied a group of talented mixed-media artists together and authored Mixed-Media Self Portraits. It's a well-written and fun book filled with both thoughtful and whimsical exercises from some of our favorite collage and fabric artists.
After the UPS man dropped off the boxes of books today, we hid them in the office while I snuck out to grab some proper Halloween grub (candy corn and tiny cupcakes soaked in orange food coloring) so that we could give a little celebratory toast to Cate.
A shout-out to all of the contributors:
Kelly Rae Roberts
Mary Beth Schwartzenberger
Tracy and Allison Stilwell
K. Wayne Thornley
Linda Edkins Wyatt
I didn't contribute to the book, but if I had, my mixed-media self-portrait would have looked something like this:
Congrats to Cate and everyone!
