One Powerful Hour Challenge - Open Theme



I just discovered a fantastic new blog challenge site called One Powerful Hour. This is the description of the challenge site:


This is a challenge site designed to keep those of us who are a tad bit messy under control. Every Thursday a new challenge will be presented, the idea is to complete your piece from start to finish in 1 hour, this includes cleaning up after yourself…Create paper art with rubber stamps, collage, paint, altered art, mixed media… make an ATC, 4 x 4, card, inchie or whatever you fancy! Add your art to your blog, then post a direct link under the comments section to share with others! Have fun and make art!!!


Now doesn't that sound like fun? This week is an open theme so I just had to show off a couple of the wacky bird atcs that I created using a collage sheet with images from Alison Strine. I have long been a fan of her artwork so when I noticed that she was offering collage sheets I just had to purchase them from her (in large quantities).

These are amazing, especially knowing you made them in an hour! So fun, witty, and colorful! Now I have to say it would definitely be a challenge for me to do anything in an hour, but maybe I should try.
