I had to make a Diva Dictionary page for my Altered Divas Yahoo Group. (I wish I had more time to participate in that group; the women are all wonderful.) We had to make up a word and do a 5x7 art piece depicting the word
My word is JUNKALICIOUS...these pages were made with the crap...er, I mean junk, that was sitting in bags in the basement. You know, the stuff you don't know what to do with but hate to throw away??? I used all sorts of junk...old text, a napkin, discarded painted watercolor paper, glittery vellum, green foil wrapped around a slide cover, postage stamps, stamped images that I have NO IDEA where they came from, and puka beads from an old broken necklace. I was living a JUNKALICIOUS moment!!!

The idea is that you then pick five blogs that you believe deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and contribution to the blogging community. List the names of the people you chose to receive the award on your blog and link to their blogs. Then let your award winners know by posting a comment on their blog.
Each award winner is to show the award and put the name of the person who gave them the award with a link to her/his blog. You also need to show the link to the Arte Y Pico blog to honor the origin of this award.There are so many blogs and blog owners that I appreciate and admire. Not only for all of the art they share but, also, the wonderful techniques they share. It is hard to pick five but here are the ones I have chosen:

These two arches are for Donna in my Altered Art Swap Yahoo group. Her theme is Edgar Allan Poe...one of my favorite authors since middle school. I chose The Raven because I loved it when I read it the very first time. I know it's a favorite among many, and I probably should have picked a more difficult writing of his. But I just had to stay with what I loved the most. ENJOY!

A triptych for a mingle on Altered Designs.
These are skinny "Spring" mingle pieces.
I received three GORGEOUS pieces of art in the mail today! Let's see...I opened a gorgeous fabric page from a RR I'm in; a triptych and my 1-2-3 Mingle from my wonderful friend Tamara. It was such a happy mail day.
Images are compliments of Lisa's Altered Art.
