LOC Challenge #1

Hello Friends!  

I'm excited to be part of a brand new challenge blog called Left of Center Creative Challenges. This will be a bi-weekly challenge blog that allows/encourages all things Left of Center- Steampunk, Goth, Halloween (year-round), dark, spooky, creepy, anime, edgy, mythical (fairy tale,  mermaids, dragons, fairy, literary characters, fan art),  and horror, as well as regular mainstream crafters. 

Each Challenge will have a theme, and as long as you project fits into one of the above Left of Center categories, you can follow it or not.  If you are more of a mainstream crafter, you must follow the Challenge theme.  It's a win-win for all!

This weeks theme is buttons and/or bows. Our fabulous sponsor this week is Floppy Latte Digital Designs and I was able to play with Guarding the Egg.  I colored her with pencils and then cut her out to place in my art journal.  My background was created with watercolor crayons.  I love how it turned out!  Then I stamped some little circles down the side, attached my dragon with her egg (that I added some glitter to) and some gems at the top of the page in a couple of the circles I had stamped. I used a metallic sharpie to add my sentiment, not so happy with how that part turned out so may try to figure out something to add at a later date.... maybe a cloud :)

We would love to have you join in our challenge and tell your friends too!
