I’m happy to be participating in the One World One Heart (OWOH) global blog giveaway event for 2011! This is a worldwide meet-and-greet virtual tour for bloggers complete with door prizes.
So, what could be more appropriate for this event than to give away a whole world? A “wee planet” to be precise. (Or rather, several…I’ll be adding one giveaway for every 100 comments so spread the word!)
The first prize is an 8″ x 8″ print of one of my “wee planets” (winners choice). Each mini-world is lovingly created from 360 degree panorama photos and ready to explore. If you had your very own world to escape to, what would it be like? Perhaps:
P.S. If you’re a photographer (or just handy with a camera) and live or travel somewhere beautiful, colorful or unique, please remember me — I’m always looking for great 360 degree panorama photos to create new worlds from. I don’t get to travel much these days as I’m enjoying the company of my toddler and a brand new baby, so all of my traveling is virtual at the moment! 🙂
My other love is the book arts, creating and binding one-of-a-kind artist books by hand. Last year I also gave away a “mini-booklace” (a mini-book necklace – wearable, functional art). I’m not sure if I’ll have a chance to create a book for the contest this year, as it is hard to find art time (or sleep time!) with a newborn… =)
B.T.W. – My latest wee planet (shown here) is currently a finalist in the 2012 Cloth Paper Scissors magazine calendar contest, “On the Street Where You Live.” I’ll find out the results on Friday the 11th – wish me luck!
UPDATE: Regrettably, my wee planet didn’t make it into the 2012 CPS calendar. It truly is an honor to be a finalist, and encourages me to submit more art in the future. Thank-you to all of those who wished me luck!
