So you’ve seen the Artella links around the Mixed Media Art website, but who are they? And what can they offer?
I have been a fan of Artella for many years, even before my Mixed Media Art site. The site has a community feel and is headed by Marney, who describes herself as “Artella Founder, Mango Lover, Hula Dancer”. Now who could argue with that!
There are so many areas of Artella Land “the creative isles of words, art, and spirit” that it takes a bit of navigation to get around.
Artellagram is their regular e-mail, letting us know what they have been up to and what has been added. There is an artists profile in “In The Studio” section and lots of inspiration in the “Creativity Tip”
The Member Ship – offering a range of membership “cabins”, ranging fro $6 to $10 per month. Each of the 5 different cabins have different inclusions and offers a slight different focus, whether it be art jouralling, digital art or general mixed media art.
