You know those hypothetical questions about what you'd take if you knew you were going to be stranded on a desert island? The latest eclectic Paperie E-Team Blog Hop theme is basically my own answer to that question: Tim Holtz's Seasonal Distress Inks and something inspired by Starbucks!
(I'd also take my iPhone and a bunch of Motown mp3s, but since I was listening to Marvin Gaye while I made this piece and I took the photo with my iPhone, I figure I've got all the bases covered.) ;-)
I made what is currently a little wall hanging, although I think I'll end up attaching a magnet to the back so I can stick it on my espresso machine:
My E-Teammates did an amazing job with their art (they always do, actually!), and I think you'll have a blast hopping around to check out their work! As always, the lovely and generous Daisy from eclectic Paperie has great some prizes up for grabs, and to be eligible to win, all you need to do is leave a comment at each artist's blog. You have from today through this Sunday, October 30 to make the rounds. Daisy will randomly choose three winners from among all the comments, and each will receive $20 eclectic Paperie Gift Voucher! The winners will be announced on October 31 a the eclectic Paperie blog.
The E-Team is:
Daisy Sparks, our Fearless Leader
Linda Ledbetter (That's me!)
(Linda Duke and Sherry Cheever are sitting this one out, but be sure to stop by their blogs and see the beautiful projects they've been working on!)
But, wait! There's more. This is an eclectic Challenge, after all, and we want to see what YOU create using one of more of the Seasonal Distress Ink colors and a shot of Starbucks inspiration! The prize is awesome: A $10 Starbucks gift card and a box full of eclectic Paperie goodies! You'll have a couple of weeks to get this done-- the winner will be posted when our next E-Team hop goes up on November 15.
Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a spectacular, art-full weekend!
