We are so excited about 2013 and all
the new things that we’ll be learning
together. To kick things off, we’ve put
together our very first Bucket List
issue. We expect that this will become
a collectors’ issue for many of you.

If you’ve been wanting to try any of
the techniques featured in this issue,
these are the projects and tasks to
try. We asked some of the best mixedmedia artists around to show our
readers how to get started, get further,
and try something new.
