Art Challenge "Angels"



And by popular request, here's our Rob singing his heart out




I thought this weeks challenge would be a good way to get our creative juices flowing for the Art Auction we will be hosting May1st - 7th to benefit Angel Faces. As you can see there are many art forms represented here. We are surrounded by everyday angels. The complete stranger that makes you smile inwardly, the child that makes your heart grow so large it feels as though it will explode, the friend who is always there for you, the person that warms your heart, the teacher that encouraged you, the inspiration that strikes you at any given time, your creative muse and so on.

This week you can run with this challenge. Make a mixed-media piece, a retablo (altar ornament), painting, jewelry, photograph, poem, drawing, collage, a doll, an ATC, use paper mache', mobile, or what have you. Let your creative muse be your guide.  Go wild, go crazy, let it come to life without over thinking it.
You have until next Sunday the 24th (Easter) to add your link to the blog post showcasing your finished piece in the comments section. I cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with. Each week the challenge participants seem to grow and grow! We are loving showcasing your artwork! Remember that you are automatically entered for a chance to win this months challenge when you participate. So let's see whatcha' got. : ) 

Side note: If you are interested in donating a piece of art for the Charity Art Auction to benefit Angel Faces, click on that link or you can email me at tlsprinkle@yahoo.com or leave a comment here with your email address and one of us will be happy to fill you in on the details. . The more the merrier! Don't be shy!

Happy Creating!
XOXO

If you need some music to help you create

Those from across the pond probably don't know this one (most people in the UK can probably sing every line - even if they don't like it!)
