An Expressive and Innovative Mixed Media Art Ezine for Paper Crafters, Collage and Assemblage Artists

Art With No Boundaries Online Magazine Vol 2

January 2013 ... Welcome to the New Year Issue

A Letter from the Editor:
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and holiday season with their families and friends. I can't believe it is a brand new year already and what better way to start off the  New Year than with a brand new issue of Art With No Boundaries On-line Magazine / Ezine.

I really enjoyed putting together the first issue of the magazine. For the first time in along time, I actually got to enjoy creating art with my own designs and one of my New Years resolutions for this year will be to take more time to enjoy my own Art.

 I  want to thank everyone who helped make the first issue of the Art With No Boundaries Ezine so wonderful by leaving lovely comments, and sharing all your great projects in the Interactive Zone

A special thanks to Elenor, Candy and Judy, who's fabulous work graced the pages of the last issue, seeing so much amazing creativity in one place is truly inspirational.

This month there are more great projects to inspire you. Since Valentines Day is just around the corner, this issue is dedicated to Love, Romance, Hearts and a whole lot more. I hope you will all enjoy this issue as much as you enjoyed the last and again I look forward to reading your comments and having you share your projects in the Interactive Zone. For those of you who enjoy the magazine and would like to share that feeling with the rest of the web, I have again include the Cover Art where you can participate, help spread the word about the Art With No Boundaries Ezine and maybe even win some nice Blog Candy. Pour yourself a cup of something, get comfy and enjoy your visit.

PS Sorry for being late with this issue, I have been a little under the weather but doing better now and hope you enjoy what we have created for you.
