Inspiration Avenue Art Challenge

As most of  my regular readers know I am always into or up to something new and different.  (Let's not forget though, gardening is still way up there on my favorite things to do, with my hip issues I just cannot get around like I need to, so while the doctors and surgeons are determining what exactly needs to be done, I'll keep trying different avenues of art)

I recently found Jenn over at Just Add Water Silly  through What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday over at Stamping Ground where artists/crafters post what their work spaces look like on Wednesdays.  I just love peeking into these spaces.

ANYWAY, Jenn is also a member of Inspiration Avenue, more info here, where artists and crafters across the globe are encouraged to stretch their artistic minds by themed challenges.
It is a bit confusing at first, but so worth getting to know these wonderful, helpful and most talented artists.
You have a chance to win prizes or be featured in the Red Carpet Gallery..


This weeks challenge theme over at Inspiration Avenue is Wishes...
The Little Mermaid came to my mind immediately.  I used my latest art form of alcohol inks, paper, stickers and protective sealant on ceramic tile and came up with what I imagined I would wish for if I were a Mermaid.....I tried to create a "Midnight Wish"... 
There is also another person named Darla in these challenges so I will be using DarlaG when posting.

**I do have an appointment on July 16th for a consultation about a hip scope... sigh**

I hope your hip gets better soon. Good luck with the art contest. I'd say your tile is a sure winner!

I was blown away by the tile you created. I've never seen anything like it on IA. It is incredible.

Hope your hip gets better before the scope.

That tile just makes my mind wander. About what I don't know, but it sends me off to dreamland in hopes of happy days.
If I don't speak with you before, I am sending good "wishes" for you Dr. visit!

Lovely tile! Glad you are finding wonderful things to keep yourself busy since your hip is keeping you from the garden.
