Art Challenge -November

I breezed under the radar just in the nick of time to join in the art challenge over at "Mind Wide Open" (see side bar on left)

And last night I remembered that the entries had to be in by midnight tonight.."oi!"

So..I hurriedly created a little sumpin' sumpin' from the art we had to work with...and the theme was "Beloved"

Well..once I saw the image we had to work with and it being Fall time now...well..
I thought of pumpkins...and Peter, Peter..Pumpkin Eater...

Here's what I created.
The image that we had to use is what you see in the center ..a woman behind a window.
So ..I found a pumpkin patch image and the Peter Pumpkin wording and used mat board and wire to hang it from..and then framed with gimp trim and flower springs and a little bead garland around the window.
(I'm thinking now that I should have used a wee bit of glitter on those pumpkins..but aww well..it was fun anyhow and I only had a day to do mine cause I totally forgot about the challenge until the last minute...but we are given a week..and I forgot until yesterday.)
So...the contest starts officially tomorrow Nov. 8th when all of the pretty art works are displayed over at "Mind Wide Open"
So do stop by there and cast your vote for your fave art.
