Hilda Conkling Quotes Challenge 02.14.09

Gale Blair at Paper Whimsy is hosting a year-long art challenge and is generously providing participants with gorgeous collage sheets and Hilda Conkling quotes to challenge us twice a month. In order to participate you must be a member of the PW forum...come on over and join us!

This month's color theme is blue and I used the provided fish, flower, door and text. I began with a PW image, colored & painted it, then further altered it to create the vision I wanted to use to tell the story of the the text. Here is my strange, pure, happy two-page spread. Enjoy "The Key To My Mind"! Namaste, Carol

Love the piece, Carol. I have a question, I would like to do paper whimsy challenges but can't register on the site. It asks if you are a customer and I say yes and then it says if you are not ,then you have to have a member sponsor you. I am a customer and have been for a while. Do you know how I could contact them? Thanks
