OneWorldOneHeart Giveaway


What is OWOH?
It's a blog-wide giveaway event designed to bring bloggers from across the globe together.
It allows us to discover many new friends & like-minded souls.(and of course, there's the
bonus of possibly winning some wonderful artsy things!)
This is the 3rd year of this event but only my first, so I'm very excited to be a part of this
huge blogging movement.
The only thing you have to do to enter the giveaway on my site is to leave a comment.
It's that simple. I will then put your name in the drawing which closes on Feb. 12. I will
contact you via email if you win. So please don't forget to leave me your email address
when commenting.
You can also visit the OWOH blogsite and see all the other blogger/artists who are participating.
Best of Luck!

This is a small art quilt I'm giving away. It's called "little pink houses" for
obvious reasons. The base for the houses is a fiber sandwich which was then burned
for texture. If you look closely you can see there is a fiber 'snaking' through
the background which connects all the little houses. The idea behind it is that
we are all connected in some way or other. There's also little heart buttons on some
houses and there are charms with words on other houses. It comes ready to hang.
Hope you like it.
This is the second place prize I'm giving away. I've had such a great response I decided to add another item.
So here it is! A mixed media art doll necklace. Made from a domino, wire, wooden button and brass charms. It hangs from a copper ball chain.
I plan to stop accepting comments on Thursday Feb. 12 at 6:00pm central time so that I can draw the names of the lucky winners and have it posted that same night.
Good Luck to all!

Art Elements Component of the Month for April

Over at Art Elements Jen hosted the Component of the Month for April. She is a glass artist and made some amazing lampwork glass beads with texture. I just love the colors especially when the light hits it. She said she had the 'northern lights in mind' when she created these beauties.
She planted the 'northern lights' in my mind as well. Immediately I thought about freeform peyote and creating some sort of movement of light and color streaking through the sky. I have to confess I do a LOT of bead embroidery and some peyote bezeling BUT I don't do a lot of bead weaving. But I thought this was my chance to do some practicing!
I attempted to created lots of movement/texture with the beading. I left some open spaces and also created lots of waving/rippling with changing up the bead size periodically. AND I had no idea what I was doing. Just picking up beads and trying them out. I think it worked okay.
Once I got the slightly irregular piece beaded, I needed to figure …

Component of the Month Design Challenge

Over at Art Elements Caroline created the most beautiful starry bead sets for August's Component of the Month Design Challenge.
Below is the bed set that I received. The photo doesn't do them justice. The lustrous finish is just gorgeous and those stars on the central bead are brilliant.

I received these beads while I was working on a tuturial for etching brass bullet casings (you can see the dirty fingers in the above photo). As soon as my bullets were etched I knew the brass would look really good with these beads!
So I created a tassel of brass chains and seed beads to dangle from the bullet shell then added the starry bead at the top.
Once I create a pendant whether it's bead embroidered or a tassel type pendant, I am always torn about how to finish the necklace portion off... Of course I knew I would use the other 2 beads but I didn't know whether to use chain or more beads or leather etc etc etc.... Too many choices.
I ended up creating just a short beaded porti…

May's Component of the Month

Over at Art Elements it was Lesley's turn to host the Component of the Month. She made these gorgeous ceramic cabochons and pendants with the impression of a cross section of a shell. Just love the earthy look and shells are one of my favorite things!
I failed to take a photo of the one I received but as you can see from the photo below it was one of the cabochons with the darker glaze with the touches of green pooling in areas--yummy!
I knew I wanted to pair it with either more shells, or rocks that would keep it beachy yet earthy.
Out of the millions of sea shells I have I could not find ONE that looked good with these darker shades in the glaze. I also wanted to enhance the circular shapes by using round shells. I tried several different colors of snail shells-nope didn't look right. Tried some pebbles but they were too black and too blah. So I found this fossilized coral cabochon in my stash and decided to use it.
It wasn't circular but the starburst effects in the c…
