Queen for the Day and feeling ever so privileged . . .

This week's Altered Works of Art Challenge over at DAQ was to re-create an incredible work of art by Mark Ryden.   The original is so out there and  I was totally psyched to give this one a shot and boy did I have fun!  Best part of all . . . I made myself Queen for the Day!   Queen of what, I don't know, but a queen nonetheless . . .

In Ryden's piece, she has quite the quantity of meat hanging from her belt while in my piece you'll see that I made the piggy my friend and cupcakes, my guilty pleasure, heehee . . .
But my feeling privileged can be attributed to more than merely altering myself into royalty.  Two absolutely fantastic items were revealed in the world of digital altered art today and if you are not already aware, my altered friends, you must check it out!!!  I am so flattered to have been asked to be a part of both of them.

Now available in the Scrap Artist shoppe . . . everything you ever wanted to know about creating digital art and paper dolls and best of all it is FREE to the first 100 people to grab it!  Be sure to check out the back cover while you're at it; wink wink.

And then DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!!!  

If you are an Art Journaler or simply aspire to be one,  you MUST check out Tangie Baxter and Amanda Sexton's Art Journal Caravan {Expedition 2010}.  An amazing kit, tips on getting started, access to a special altered artist forum, challenges and a full Navigation Guide (it alone is worth the price in my book)  that includes tons of information and inspiration from myself and a host of other talented ladies.  

For all of the details check out the Art Journal Caravan blog here.

I am off to check these things out! I actually visited both things the other day after visiting you and am so intrigued - still have some tabs open on my tab bar! Wish all the artists at Scrap Artist left their TOU's - I sell my work and can't find if I'm allowed to do that with some of them, but I'll keep investigating.

Congratulations, Queen-not-just-for-the-day (hee hee!), on your publication! How wonderful! Now, have to go look again!

things that make me go "heehee"!
