One World One Heart


I want to welcome you to my blog and to the One World One Heart Blog Event. Please pick up your coffee or tea, have a seat on the magic carpet and enjoy your journey. I know your going to see lots of wonderful art work along the way. Please feel free to have a look around my blog to see some of the art projects I have been working on.

Last year I stumbled onto the One World One Heart site while blog surfing and was startled by all the blog sites that you could visit. I started my way down the list and was amazed at all the wonderful artists out there that wanted to share in this event. This year I wanted to share too, so I have created this little plaque as a token of my friendship to one lucky person.

This plaque is made from a base of a 6 x 6 Grungebook from Tim Holtz. I have covered it with a pastel stripe paper from Basic Grey and added many of my favorite things - the phrase is done with my Dymo "Friendships bring the world closer together". I thought that said a lot and gives meaning to what we are doing with this event. My bird is painted with Crackle paint and then covered with Distressed Stickles - he's really pretty in person. This images are from Altered Pages and I have added swirls of bling for my accents. Again thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my give-a-way.

If you would like to be part of my give-a-way you need to leave a comment and it needs to include your e-mail address so that if you should be the winner I can contact you to get your mailing address. This give-a-way will be open to all bloggers from today, January 25th, until noon (12:00 PM) on February 15th. I will then draw a winner and post it to my blog later that afternoon. As soon and the winner responds I will get your package out to you ASAP!!

I hope you have enjoyed your stay here and that you'll return often to see what I may be up to with my art. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day filled with art.

Hi there,

Could it be that the layout of your blog is all scrambled up? It took me a while to find your post. Only by highlighting it, I could finally read the words. Anyway, it was certainly worthwhile -- lovely artwork! :)
