Winner of the Fairies & Mermaid Challenge is Kelly Deal

Congratulations to the winner of the random drawing for my September "Fairies & Mermaids" challenge ~ this lovely, golden fairy card by Kelly Deal! Beautiful work and such nice colors for the start of Autumn, don't you think?

All the entries were fabulous! Come back bright and early tomorrow for the start of my theme for October: GOTHIC. I hope that is a theme that everyone can get very creative with and take in many directions ~ all creative media are welcome, so I hope you will link up your entry. Everyone has an equal change to win, since the winner is chosen by random number, so come join us! (Actually, if you use a Lunagirl image in your work you do double your chances in the drawing...)

Can you believe tomorrow is the beginning of October???

Welcome New Design Team Member: Patti Robinson!

I'm happy to announce that Patti Robinson will be joining the Lunagirl Moonbeams Design Team! Patti creates beautiful mixed media art and jewelry, frequently incorporating vintage images and objects. I know her work will be an inspiring addition to our challenges. I'm very excited to welcome her to my little corner of the web!

Here's an introduction from Patti ~ be sure to visit her blog to see her work:
"I have a BFA in Art and Art History and currently teach art and jewelry making to adults and children. My repurposed designs and collaborations have been featured in Cloth, Paper Scissors and in the windows of Donna Karan’s Urban Zen. The artist Joseph Cornell has been my lifelong "art crush" and inspiration. I had the amazing opportunity to catalog his collection of vintage source materials before they were shipped to the Smithsonian. I love to use images and objects from the past and incorporate them into mixed media art and jewelry designs. You can see my creative adventures (and sometimes misadventures) on my blog http://www.pattirobinsonart.com/blog."

September Challenge Theme: FAIRIES & MERMAIDS


The theme for my September challenge is a favorite on mine (and yours I hope): Fairies and Mermaids. We've done a Fairyland theme before, but this time let's include Mermaids as well. 

Don't miss the Design Team inspiration below, and have a look at some Lunagirl digital collage sheets to get you started! Fairies.... and Mermaids! The DT is working with some images of Faerie Fantasy Showgirls (for something a little different), Faerie Queens, and of course vintage Mermaids.

I can't wait to see what you create ~ link up your entries below. 

CHALLENGE GUIDELINES:


  • Challenge ends at 2:00 pm CST on September 30.
  • Any craft or medium is welcome!
  • Vintage style is encouraged but not required.
  • Use a Lunagirl image and your entry will count twice in the drawing!
  • Link to this blog and to Lunagirl.com on your site if you have one.
  • Prize:  Winner will be selected randomly to receive a $15 credit at Lunagirl.com!

  • I love it when you use Lunagirl images, and I hope you'll go take a look at my collections... but that's not a requirement!  But do remember that if you use a Lunagirl image, you will be entered TWICE in the drawing! I welcome everyone and every style but also want to give a little something extra to my wonderful customers! Most important is have fun, get creative, and enjoy vintage style.
