Calling Out the Artist

My art form has always been with photography. So I have added some shots here of snow...just because I wanted something that reminded me of being cooled off. Whew, been a hot one this summer for me. These were taken on an Easter morning. We woke to hide eggs and was greeted with snow. Something we see rarely in our Central Texas area. Bet we could have found the colored eggs much easier this way. Altered many 'Easter bunny' plans that day.

This week's Blog Hop theme is "SHOW OFF YOUR ART". This theme was suggested by a blog hop fan this week. Many of you are artists, wanna be artists or have kids who love art. This blog hop is your chance to show off your art. Don't be bashful or shy, you don't have to be a professional, it's not a contest. Drawing, painting, scrap booking, crafts or just one of your kid's masterpieces... let's all enjoy it!

NOTE: if you don't have a scanner, just take a photo and put it online.

You can also use this as a way to win your own art work for your walls. Just pop over to my graphics give away here. Uprint wants to offer (2) of my readers a 24”x 24” Wall Graphic. Winners will be selected on September 18th.

Here is a photo of College Girl that a friend of mine help alter a little.

She called it the "wedding" look. I loved that it helped show off CG and not the backgrounds or anything. I took this photo at home using a sheet for a background and a coat as her 'dress' for that fur look. But I think it came out beautiful.

  6. Hey Kiddo! I guess you're gonna have to put me a great big button that says CLICK ME FOR COMMENTS! I've been trying to comment on your blog for 1/2 hour. I click on what I thought was the comment link, and the "E-mail your friend, or something like that kept coming up. Anyway I found you, that's what's important. I messed up on my blog for the tags. I had like 5 chosen, and accidentally clicked on another part and it wiped all the tags out except for 1. Oh well, live and learn I guess. More living than learning I'm afraid. Nah! I'll eventually catch on. You didn't know you were taking me to raise, did ya?

    Love ya! PJ
