KEYS Art Challenge - 19 September


KEYS
King of Keys - www.jackbaddely.com

This week's challenge is to use a key or keys or the metaphor of a key in your creations.  A key can mean and represent so many things. Once you start playing with the word key, you will see what I mean!  I am very excited about hosting this weeks' challenge, my first (Hettienne from Her Grace).  Each week's entries are always so inspiring and innovative - I am looking forward to visiting all your blogs this week.  I hope that these ideas inspire you and stretch your mind, and above all, to find another key to yourself and your journey!






The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but significance - and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning. - Oprah Winfrey

Love this challenge, Hettienne as I have a rather large collection of skeleteon keys and keyholes. I love them! I am already planning what I am going to make. Thanks for the push. :)

I too am making it barely on time, but what a challenge! Excited to see everyone post either about locks and keys, or musical keys-- perhaps even land keys, like the Florida Keys?
