My new 2017 calendar is ready for purchase! Please click on the Lulu link, in the right margin and it will take you to the page where you can place your order. This is a 12 month calendar, glossy, measuring 8.5" x 11" - featuring 12 unique digital images that I've created. These can be matted and framed, as the months go by, so it is pretty much like getting 12 prints for only $14.99. Pretty cool, I think =) Please let me know if you have any questions!

One World One Heart 2011

It has been decided - 2011 is the fifth and final year of the One World One Heart Event. Although I wasn't able to participate in the past due to other obligations, I am so excited to be participating this year. For those of you who have not visited my blog before, my name is Peggi and I've been blogging and creating digital art since 2005. I try to create pieces that are visually interesting and varied, and I love colors and textures so you will see a lot of that in my artwork. I love vintage images too, and I often combine a bit of the past with the present to show how they relate to each other. I hope that you enjoy looking at my work and getting to know me. I am excited to visit your blogs and to learn about you, and to make lots of new blogging friends =) All active bloggers worldwide are invited to participate in OWOH. To see a list of the participants please visit this link: 2011 Participants

The event will begin at Midnight tonight, January 30th, and will end on February 17th. Please be sure to follow this link if you would like to participate or would like further information about One World One Heart 2011.

Each participating blogger provides a door prize to one random winner, selected on February 17th. My prize is actually three items combined - three different digital collage prints of my recent work, sized 8 X 10 ready for matting/framing, printed on high quality photographic paper, and signed and dated on the back (see images above).

For a chance to win, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post between midnight tonight and February 17th, with a way for me to email you if you win and so that I can visit your blog. That's all there is to it =) I will email the winner and will post their name here at the end of the event. Good luck to all the participants! I look forward to getting to know you. Many thanks to Lisa Swifka for organizing each of the One World One Heart events ~ what a truly special lady she is!

The prompts never fail to put me into a creative frame of mind, and I love meeting the other artists and seeing what wonderful creations they come up with. Please stop by the challenge blog today and have a look. Thank you again, Marie! xo

For the Take a Word Challenge - Botanical

This week for the Take a Word challenge, our prompt was "botanical" - one of my favorite subjects =) To make this collage I used an image of Maude Fealy which I've had for a while, and found some botanical images on the Flickr Collage Images page. I colorized the image in PSP and Photoshop. Be sure and stop by the Take a Word blog to see more entries - there are lots of gorgeous submissions this week =)

For Theme Thursday - Love

For Theme Thursday this week we are to make an art piece relating to love. Being the sentimental girly-girl that I am (yes, sad but true =) , my favorite movie of all time was the 1938 version of Marie Antoinette with Tyrone Power and Norma Shearer as the doomed lovers Count Axel von Fersen and MA. To create this collage I used images from my stash that I have had on hand for some time (including the MA print which I got from eBay about 10 years ago) ... say what you want about Tyrone Power, but he was IMHO the original 20th Century Fox!

For the Three Muses Challenge - Old Fashioned

For the Three Muses Challenge this week, the prompt is "Old Fashioned" - one of my very favorite art subjects. So I went ahead and created this digital collage ATC - the fashion plate is a digital image I've had on file for several years and never used, and the frames are from Paint Shop Pro X2. The lace accents and vintage handwriting are also from my "digital reserve". Be sure and stop by the Three Muses Challenge blog to see all the wonderful entries. xxoo
