Unruly Paper Arts Challenge


I'm participating in  an art challenge hosted by Unruly Paper Arts. Their button is at the top of my side bar,if you would like to visit them.The participants are asked to incorporate a  Fleur-de- Lis into their art. The top 5 winners will be featured in the Sept. issue. Voting for the winners begins Jan. 26th. Readers  will be doing the voting. The Fleur-de- Lis  image stands in honor of France.The beginnings of it, many years ago stood for.... Those who worked,Those who fought and those who  prayed. It literally means, Flower of the Lilly. This is my one tag,done up on both sides.This new year I am going full force into my arts and crafts It's so relaxing to me.I love going to my little art desk  and losing myself into meditative art- I just made that up -meditative art,but it sure describes what I do. Love and Hugs-Denise

Denise! Ten grandchildren! How wonderful! I loved your family photo. You are also so cute as a Hobbit. Thanks for the post about the author. I so enjoyed the recent movie.
You have made my evening by wanting to swap an ornament with me. Yours will mean so much to me, as your sweet spirit is so inspiring to me.
I love your top tag the best. It's my vote for winner!

This is really lovely, very feminine, yet powerful!

One of my favourite songs that makes me realise God’s always around. — Dancing with God, Verse 1: You dance over me While I am unaware, You sing all around But I never hear the sound, Chorus: Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You Lord, I’m amazed by You How You love me Verse 2: You paint the moring sky With miracles in mind, My hope will always stand, For You hold me in Your hand.
