For @ellen-hilart 's contest: Artist Trading Cards
http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/contest.show?id=407383
Magnolia is a large genus of about 210 flowering plant species named after French botanist Pierre Magnol. Magnolia is an ancient genus that appeared before bees did, so its flowers evolved to encourage pollination by beetles, which explains why the flowers are so tough (to avoid damage by the beetles while they were doing their job). Fossilised specimens of Magnolia acuminata have been found dating to 20 million years ago, and of plants identifiably belonging to the Magnoliaceae dating to 95 million years ago!
By the end of the 18th century, botanists exploring Asia began to name and describe the Magnolia species from China and Japan according to their morphology.
Present DNA analyses have allowed to research their phylogenetic relationships and helped further determine species within the genus.

Around the World in 80 Sets (travel group- fashion , art , interior design )

Travelers get ready! The goal is the go around the world in 80 sets. I will pick a place, and people can make a set about that place. Sets can be any type- fashion, art, interior design, any time period. We value gaining new knowledge about cultures and places. Respect for all! Please come join our voyage of creativity :-) BE ORIGINAL-anyone with stolen sets will be banned. Sets showing hatred towards others will also be banned.

The Creative Coalition

The Creative Coalition

As if 10/15, on a temporary Hiatus. Will return. Just need to focus on some things offline at this time.
 
Welcome to the Creative Coalition - an art-based group. This is a group for those of us who find solace in creativity. We are creative, open-minded and support one another. No submission will be rejected unless it is hateful or a blatant copy. So, here's a bit about the group in a nutshell...
1. Preferred Submissions: Art sets, including dolls, abstracts, interiors/exteriors, collage, etc. as opposed to strictly editorial fashion sets but as stated above no submission will be rejected.
 
2. Contests will be held - some judged by moderators and some will be up for group vote.
 
3. Kindness and encouragement for everyone. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
 
If you have any questions please PM me!
