Weekly Challenge - "I Am"

HA! My turn again to come up with a challenge. We’ve had so many wonderful themes by the ladies at Inspiration Avenue, to tell you the truth, I had a real tough time thinking of the challenge word this week.

So far, many of our challenges have been about a “topic” … to create something in any medium you choose about … well, something. So I thought that it would be nice to have a challenge that says something about ... you, the artist. When I first started making art, I constantly hear other artists talking about finding a style that in uniquely you. I have come to know of a lot of artists who have indeed developed a style of their own and once you see an artwork by them, you know immediately who made that particular art!

And so, this week’s challenge is simply “I”

I will make this challenge a little wider by opening it up to “anything and/or everything” about you. For example, think … I hope …, I dream …, I love …, I hate …, I hide …, I wish …, I desire …, I make …, I create …, I think …, I believe …, I was …, I will be …, I want to be …, or simply, I am …

Create something in any medium you choose and tell us how the creation is connected to you. It is something you hope to achieve one day, something you love, your history, your unique style or simply the current you. When you're done, post it in your blog and leave us a link ... we will do the rest :) The dateline for this challenge is Sunday 4th April at 12noon EST.

Now comes the part everyone’s waiting for … the giveaway for April. Every entry to our weekly challenges stands a chance of winning a little something. So happens … that I am also the one who’s doing April’s giveaway! Here it is, a whimsical bookmark which I named “Transformation”. Made with a beautifully etched bookmark hook, a pretty butterfly charm, shell pearls and faceted glass beads.

Good luck and Have fun!

*Just a reminder to Evil Edna ... please leave your email with us HERE cos you won last month's giveaway :))
