The most amazing thing happened....

I'm still in disbelief...I was one of two picked as winner in the Marion Smith's (Prima Flower Lady), 31 Day Challenge, 31 Vids, 31 Goals. She said she couldn't pick just one and said we were tie. I'm so humbled and proud at the same time. I was thrilled and not only get some of Marion's new WONDERFUL Vintage (metal) Trinkets and new Prima product line but that wonderful title of "winner". What a challenge and journey it was. My goal was to try and create art every day and try to get something accomplished in projects that were not finished. I DID IT!! 'cept for two days when I was packing up supplies, tools and photos for a live crop I was attending. I'm still making art almost everyday and that makes me happy. One of the other benefits from this Challenge is that it has brought so many like minded people together. I have subscribed to so many and now I can continue to be inspired and share art with so many awesome gals and guys.
I also had been chosen as one of the 'Featured Artists' of the 31 Day Challenge by a wonderful gal named Laurel (screen name scotia9338 or LaurelfromNJ) She sent all of a special art tag she made....I LOVE the Steampunk tag I received....just wonderful.
I've also learned a little more about recording videos and I am actively contributing to the art community on USTREAM....a live broadcast of me making an art project with a lil' give away gifty. I stream on Saturdays at 6 PM E.S.T. Come join, it's free and you can join the chat or just watch...lots of fun!

Here is one of my latest Altered Art projects. I used an empty dish detergent plastic bottle and transformed it into a dress form. I was inspired by the Winter CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) DCWV (Die Cuts With a View Paper Co.) They used life sized dress forms to display their new paper line....what wonderful couture dresses the artists had made....just amazing and so beautiful....can't wait to get my hands on the new line of papers to play with.
