Celebrating this week! Challenge! Prizes!

We are going to be celebrating my 2 year Blog-versary all week this week, with a new post everyday and lots of exciting things planned. Be sure to visit each day so you don't miss out on prize drawings and other celebratory posts!

Gray Area Challenge!
To kick things off, I'd like to offer a challenge! Recently, my friend Two Dresses suggested participating in the Diary Project 2011. Those participating had to make gray scale collages for their calendar pages, which intimidated me a great deal. But I gave it a go and found it quite a fun area to explore. I only had a couple of days to get mine done and didn't get to play with the idea much and would like to try again. Play with me! The challenge is this . . . make a gray scale collage sometime this week and watch for the Gray Area post on Saturday. Post your gray scale collage on your own blog that day and then share the link in a comment on the Gray Area post you'll find here. One lucky and randomly drawn participant will win a prize! And everyone can visit each other's work by clicking on the link you share. You can work in any size and any medium! You must post your work by the end of the day Saturday, September 18!

The prize will be . . . a free print of the winner's choice from my Etsy shop! The winner will be announced Sunday September 19.

Speaking of Etsy, I finally finished the last 3 of the 6 East is West sheets in the series. Here's a quick digital collage I made using some of the pieces . . .

Love the idea of a Flickr group for images with your images. It will be fun to see what people create. Your collage imagery is so precise and gorgeous.

I love your geisha's and your yellow collage! Beautiful!!! The challenge sounds so, so, well, challenging and fun. I don't think I can make time this week 'cause I'm in the middle of a huge, busy, deadlined job... bummer! I can't make any promises to do other things right now, but this grey scaling collage will be in the back of my head. Happy anniversary!!!
