Hello to all Smeared and Smudged Members!
We are having  our 1st Annual Blog Hop!!



Isn't this so much fun!
I am having a great day today!
Thank you for stopping by
and visiting my blog !
I hope you like my art work and
I am looking forward to visiting your blogs
to see all the great pieces of art you've created!

A "Special Thank You"
goes out to Terra, our Host,
for organizing this super event !
I am so glad that I joined this group!

YOU guys made me feel
so welcome and comfortable!
I am looking forward to all of the
art tutorials and challenges that
we will be doing in the future!
Have a great day!



***VISITORS***
I am so glad that you
stopped by today to visit my blog
because you will get the chance to
learn about this fanastic
new group I just joined!
If you especially love
creating art with stamps,
then this is the group for you!!


We create Alternative art,
Gothic art, and Vintage art
but with one condition...
a stamped image must be
placed somewhere on the project!


Here is my PROJECT that I created
just for this "SPECIAL BLOG HOP"
for everyone to see!





I first found out about this group
from one of my dear friends,
Lyn at Blackdragon's Crafts!
I knew I didn't want to miss out on
all of the fun and immediately posted to join!


There are so many interesting sub-groups to join
to spark our imagination with new ideas
for creating mixed media and altered art!
There are also challenges and contests to enter,
which is my all time favorite thing to do!
 I love art challenges!
Especially their challenges--very cool!!
They also offer classess and tutorials
on the latest art trends and ink /stamp/ projects.


What I liked the most about the group
was the warm welcome from the other members
and the willingness to share ideas and knowledge
about techniques that some of us newbies
may not know about or had much experience with!


If you want to begin a journey on the
Path of Fulfillment as a successful artist,
 you join in with the others that
are going down the same path.
Your life will become enriched by the
 encouragment and inspiration you
 will receive from your fellow artists!

As they begin share their
 different perspectives
and feelings about their own art,
you will feel the urge to delve deeply
 in your own soul to explore your talent
and examine your own true convictions
 about what makes your art
 such a big part of who you are!

Go back to when you felt that first
  "LITTLE NUDGE" to pick up a paint brush,
 paint, ink, glue, scissors, paper, etc.,
to create what you soon learned
that you couldn't live without!

That's why joining a group is so important!!
Everyone has one thing in common
--it's huge--

We love to create
&
We create what we love!

No Holds Barred!
