Mixed Media Monday- Paris, and awards!!
April 7, 2008

This is my contribution to this week’s challenge on Mixed Media Monday, where the theme is Paris. One of my favourite themes again, been a great couple of weeks on the challenges for themes. Thought I’d try something different- this is the first time I’ve decorated a mask, this was just a plain paper mache mask bought for a pound or two and decorated in the style of some of the Moulin Rouge dancers…….got lots of inspiration for this on google images. Also couldn’t have a Paris themed creation without an Eiffel Tower in….hence the charm….lol


Also was very pleased this week to receive the Arte Y Pico award from Carrie, Jo and Fatma, three of my most favourite bloggers ever!!

Here are the conditions of accepting the award….

1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes to the blogging community, no matter what language.2. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his/her blog to be visited by everyone.3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her/him the award itself.4. The Award winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte Y Pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.5. To show these conditions.

Now I see the award is on lots of blogs already, including those I was going to nominate- but I am going to choose 5 to carry the award on, as I think it’s nice to be recognised by fellow bloggers that you are doing ok. So my five are…..

Audrey Barrett I love Audrey’s blog as it’s so diverse, everything from photo shoots to mixed media to soldering- love that and Audrey is ok too…… 😉

Jillian Just cos I love her work, I like the way she uses collage and I love looking to see anything new (and her latest ATCs are gorgeous!!)

Audrey Hernandez  Well no one ever gives her awards do they? lol She’s obviously very talented and inspirational bla bla bla yadda yadda yadda…….whatever……

Deb Freeman One of the things I love about Deb is she seems to be able to do any style, clean, messy, arty, scrappy, and she does it all well. I love her art and also she has some fab backgrounds to download (the trees one is GORGEOUS!!)

and last but by no means least, Michelle Ward’s fantastic Green Pepper Press blog (as Michelle’s own blog is closed for maintenence atm). This is a blog I go on regularly, but it’s above me art-wise so I don’t always join in- but the art is fantastic and I have learned loads from it- but I love that Michelle is into music as much as she is…and the type of music too……she’s going to see MCR soon and I am SSOOOOOOOO jealous I can’t tell you….lol (I’ve only seen them three times, it’s SO not enough) -I love HIM as well so her header and her digital collages etc are just brilliant, and inspired me to make my own headers on here and on my diary blog (that one’s a yummy Gee header too, fab even if I do say so myself…lol) I could prattle on here forever, which is why I nominated Michelle…

I hope you all pass this on, like I said I love recieving these things and knowing I’m doing something right or pleasing someone.

You Make My Day
January 9, 2008

“You Make My Day Award”  I’ve been tagged by Fatma for this, and the rules are…..
 Give the award to up to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel so happy about blogland! Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so that they can pass it on. Beware! You may get the award several times!
So, to narrow it down to ten….
Fatma   Tim Holtz   Nellie   Angela   Jo   Audrey  Emma  Joanne  Carrie  Carlene
I found that really difficult, because I love visiting every single blog in my links, but this ten will naturally follow on to most of them anyway…..that’s my thinking. lol
