Letters and Contests

  I am not a contest enterer, not sure if that is a word but Mary Green on Green  has a monthly contest and I thought hey why not?  I think it will push me more to do art journaling and some more mixed media and make my mind keep plugging along.  I think any kind of art is good for you and certainly is good for you.   Mary furnishes three images and you play to your does heal little hearts content creating whatever you want.  Like Zinnia on Roses on My Table does.  No rules -just do it.  Hope Nike doesn't get me for using that saying. 

So here is what I came up with, I used molding paste, wonderful stick on diamonds and ribbon and lace.  Now somehow in the scheme of things stick on diamonds just really don't jive together do they?  Actually they are stick on somethings but I call them diamonds.  So enough of the build up, I know you are sitting on the edges of your seats wanting to see my play for the day. 

There you go, she was fun to do and just stretching my wings.  I was wondering what the letter said on this.  Hope it wasn't a sad letter just something saying I am here and feeling fancy with my new wings.  You know a sweet letter. 

Funny you know thinking about it, people just donn't really write letters anymore. They email and Facebook but letters are scarce.  I am a keeper and even have all the letters my brother sent to me when he was in Vietnam.  We use to talk about nothing which I thought was good for him to keep his mind off of what was going on over there.

Ok enough for today, thanks for stopping in and seeing what is going on in my world.


  1. So fun! I love all of the elements you used and all of the color.

  2. Oh so pretty and creative Annette, must have been real fun to create, incredible how many associations you get by looking at all these pieces put together.
    Yes, it would be so nice to get real letters in the mail in stead of just bills, but it just don't happen. I suppose I could start sending some.....
