one world one heart 2011

Hello friends old and new and welcome to the great One World One Heart blog event hosted by A Whimsical Bohemian. This event is made to bring bloggers and artists together from all over the world.

Thank you to Lisa who has lovingly put this amazing event together the past five years. This is my first and sadly my last year, as it is the final one. I only discovered OWOH just as it finished up last year and knew I wanted to be a part of the next one.
But better late than never.

For all my new visitors my name is Anna (Annabella as my mom calls me). My blog, Frosted Petunias just celebrated it's one year anniversary last month so I am still fairly new to blogging. I love creating whimsical things that are a little sweet, a bit wistful, at times curios and always dusted with a sprinkle of magic.

I love the charm of handmade imperfect things, just like people who are deliciously imperfect as well. I prefer to cut shapes with scissors rather than machines. I love the tattered and worn juxtaposed with sparkle and frills. And I love color as you can see.

I also love to play with digital images and am hopelessly addicted to Photoshop. Mixed media allows me to combine different mediums and is perfect for the unruly self taught way I like to create my art and paper crafts.

My current addiction is crepe paper streamers and paper napkins. I love playing with these textures. Crumpling, crinkling and folding them into something new.

I have been creating what I call my Napkin Girls series and I'm offering one of them as a door prize for this event. I created this in honor of OWOH.

This mixed media collage piece is on 8x8 inch stretched canvas. It's created with paper, acrylic paint, pencils, embellishments and glitter.

The dress is made from a vintage map which was washed with gold paint and stains. The over skirt is a paper napkin stiffened and sculpted into shape.

The 3/4 inch border is painted deep raspberry.
It is ready to hang in your favorite creative space.

This drawing is open to all active bloggers whether this is your first or 131st visit. Just leave me a comment and please make sure there is a way I can reach you so I can come and visit, and also to contact you if you win my giveaway. The drawing will be at the end of the event on Feb 17.

Thank you for stopping by. I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can and please don't forget to go back to A Whimsical Bohemian for a list of all the One World One Heart participants. Thank you again to our hostess Lisa.

Have a beautiful day.

*   *   *   *

Update: Feb 17 - What an amazing event this has been! I just saw that I have exactly 200 comments as of today, which is the last day of the event. Since I'm out here on the West Coast (USA) some of you will still have extra time to enter my giveaway even if it's already the 18th where you are. I will have my drawing tonight and also post the winner and contact her. There are so many more of you to visit, I might be doing this until next Winter! Thank you everyone for your lovely comments and beautiful giveaways.

Good luck to all!

*   *    *    *

FINAL UPDATE:  OWOH has officially ended and the final comment count on my post is 213. The winner of my door prize was chosen and I will announce it on my blog tomorrow (Thursday). Thank you to everyone that stopped by.
