Hi all, i started this blog because there are a LOT of creative minds out there in the world & a lot of you HAVE the skills to do something with that creativity through paper mache. Of course there ARE just as many who do so already but who perhaps need some additional inperation to help grasp some NEW ways of seeing this art mediums potential. That is what i created this blog for, not so much to show off MY creativity I am after all not the worlds greatest artist. I how ever DO like to think i can help people see more potential with this art form.
I welcome your visits be you an exsisting world recognised paper mache artist, mixed media artist or even another type of media artist, or just someone totally new to this art form experimenting who may not even use paper mache at all in your current art. I freely give links back to your blogs, websites & even forums. Some more than once through out my blog here if you ask me to or not. How ever i ask only one thing. Your links MUST be to some form of artistic related site ONLY if not as mine is but at least similar in form!.
On two occasions now i have had a visitor posting a comment but also included a link to NONE art related material. The site being linked back to in MY opinion IS nothing more than a spamming site that the owner IS using to seek financial gain for themselves by advertising none art related subject material for commercial related sponcorships. This IS intolerable bahaviour. Whilst i do not mind the occaisional 'friendly' but 'brief' none art related disscusion. ALL comment posting MUST retain 'some' if not total connection to art be it paper mache or mixed media paper mache related if only then as YOU are such a person.
When i first began this blog i had the comment setting at 'moderated' i have since then given my visitors a level of trust that i hoped would NOT be violated. Saddly one person so far has done just that!. I do not wish to restore my settings back to being moderated, but i WILL if such intolerable violations persist!. I AM extremly busy, married with children (mostly all grown up now) so i have a life beyond the bounderies of the internet that comes with ALL the pleasures & torments life likes to throw at us all & THAT life IS often a busy one on it's own. Yet i devote a LOT of my 'personal' time & energy into making this blog as well as HOW TO video's on YouTube for both the exsisting artistic mixed media comunity & those wishing to simply experiment or explore this art form.
I do NOT have the time to waste on constantly moderating comments that 'should', 'could' simply be freely allowed to be posted here. I AM using my time & knowledge to give knowledge & save people time. PLEASE show me the SAME respect. When commenting keep it art related ONLY if & when possible!.
I appologise to those of you who this matter does not relate to it was not YOUR fault that you had to read through this ranting. I repeat to those to who'm it DOE'S concern - If your comment is none art related or contains elements that are NONE art related as specified above, then JUST DON'T LEAVE IT HERE IT IS NOT WELCOME!.
