My entry to the Paper Heart contest. :)

When I think of love and what it specifically means, I find it's a little scattered, and that there is so much it can be to so many different people, and even to me.

But here's a theme I felt was important, the feeling of connecting to that one person. No matter how you look at it, Love is a connection between two people.

A connection is something that grows and changes, and in the case of love, becomes stronger, going from strangers to friends, to something more.

On a personal level, I find connection to be very important, with the love of my life currently living elsewhere for extended periods of time with the Navy.

Connection is a very important element in any romance. Whether it's that first meeting, the traits you have in common, or keeping in touch over distance and time, staying connected is what keeps love going between two people.

My method was pretty simple, I used some watercolor for the background, and collaged every piece on top of it. It was a really interesting way of making art, and I'm glad I did it. Definitely a learning experience. I actually loved tearing up a bunch of notebook paper to get the right shapes and everything.

Anyway, there's my first submission to the contest, the movie looks pretty interesting! :)

**THANK YOU GUYS SOOOO VERY MUCH FOR THE FAVES AND COMMENTS! IT REALLY MEANS A LOT TO ME! :heart:**


ok, this is a mixture of digital painting and photo-manip in photoshop elements.

OK, this is my entry for the "Picture Yourself in Wonderland" contest....I just gotta leave it alone and stop updating it:P I keep finding stuff I wanna mess with, lol

My first shoot at a surreal piece...Took about 11 hours in all. Had a hard time painting as I have only a laptop mousepad....it's like drawing with a rock. Anyways, enough of my complaining. Since I only had a portion of me to work with, I had my boyfriend take more pictures of my lower half holding a paint can and a makeup brush:P I attempted to "Alice-ice" myself...well, "Red-Queen-ize" myself? I had some curtains on either side, but they seemed to take away from the rest of the piece, especially the paint dripping from the flowers.

I tried making the corset look like velvet, and the cards sewn into the dress...I have never been much of a seamstress but have always wanted to make an outfit similar to this :)

The crown jewel of my pumpkin season in my opinion. I did post a WIP last year, but this is the DEFINITIVE version. This is my baby. My first-born, honor student and all-star. Who graduates magna cum laude from an Ivy, hired by a large firm as a partner, marries wealthy... you get the picture.

The stair case is retractable. The wheels fully functioning. The roof is leak-proof (it sat outside for a week during testing). The chain is... but alas, stainless steel.
