"Peaceful" Contest


I have a little contest for those of you who feel like a challenge. I have created a drawing of a peaceful image (sorta like a blank stamp image). I am looking for creative ideas of how to finish this lovely lady. You can use any method you like within the mixed media, altered art and paper art world. I will be creating a collage sheet from the finished designs that are winners. I would like for your item to be able to fit in a ATC size space. This would mean keeping the edges clean unless you don't mind them being cut a bit. You name will appear under your design.
First place winner will receive a $25.00 money order prize and the other 11 will receive a free copy of the sheet. You will have from today til Sept. 15th to complete your design and send it to me over the net. I will post the entries on my blog and people will vote for the design. I will have to have at least 12 people for the contest to take place. So encourage you buddies to participate. You do not have to physically mail the item. Just forward it to me at this site thru the comments section. Please send me any questions.

What an amazing drawing! I love how the bird looks like it is sleeping. It is so serene. I will have to keep an eye out for the finished entries.

Hi - would you like me to submit what I've done by e-mailing you. I was inspired by your design to take it and create. I've done it in ATC size and hope it is what you are looking for.
