My goodness it's been a long time.  Still experiencing computer issues, and can't quite afford a new one, so trying to make do with what I have.  I've told all of you before that once a year I enter a city wide art show.  I've done it for the last 4-5 years.  This year I entered three pieces.  One of my pieces won first prize in the collage category!!!!  So exciting!!!!!  I thought I'd share my winning piece with all of you.  Hopefully I can show you my other entries in another blog post, just keep your fingers crossed that my computer will allow me to do that.

This piece is 11x14.  I collaged the paper onto watercolor paper.  The paper is made by Anna Griffin that I got at HSN.  The girls are from a coloring book for children that I picked up at Aaron Brothers.  Their clothes are cut from My Minds Eye paper.  Some of the embellishments are from Recollections.  I'm not sure if you can tell, but this piece has a lot of dimension to it.  A lot of the pieces have been lifted up with the help of foam dots.  I hope you all enjoy this piece.  I was so thrilled and honored to have won first prize. Since I have a lot of health issues, I'm home in bed a lot, so it makes it a great thrill to be able to share my creations with all of you!  Thanks for checking in on me!  Happy crafting!!!!
