It's a Challenge!!

I've been wrestling for a while with the idea of having challenges posted and finally decided to give it a try and see if we have enough creative energy to get them going.
So the First Etsy Cottage Style Challenge is officially on its way, and it's all about "Frames"....


...any frame, any style, any medium!!!
You can use these images or any other frame to make a collage or an assemblage if you are a Mixed Media Artist...
...or a Digital Artist....

You can also decorate a real frame or show us how you use a frame in a creative decorative way around the house...
Possibilities are endless, but only one entry per person, please!
You can email your pictures (max. 2) to migambeta@yahoo.com, I'll post all the entries and we can all vote for our favorite.

In a few words...

What: Challenge
Inspiration: Frames
Medium: Any
Artists: All
Deadline: May 30th
Prize: Lots of exposure for your Etsy store, website and blog....

OK, I'll come up with something better, I promise. Maybe a bag of goodies????, stamps?, ephemera?, fabric?, chocolate?....trip to Hawaii??...just kidding!!

Hope you are in a "Challenge Frame of mind" and decide to play!

Hi Marcela~ I was adding Etsy Cottage button to my blog and wondering if you could also send my a button for your store. Also, could you resend your banner for my website for links. While your there, please grab my banner for your website links. And would you be willing to put the Gold Framed Picture with porcelain roses from the top of my blog on this blog?? Let me know. Ciao~ Rita
