"Found Objects / Mixed Media" - Time to Vote for your Favorites

Hi Everyone,

Our "Found Object / Mixed Media" challenge ended March 31, with seven wonderful entries. I especially like these kind of challenges, because there's something so interesting about using something you FOUND. It's like a little gift. Plus, in the case of "junk", I like the fact that the artist recycled something. One person's trash is another's treasure, afterall.

Please go to the Flickr link: here, and send me a Flickr mail, or email me at Millimomo@gmail with your three favorite pieces. I like to get the number of the piece and the artist's name (or a description, or whatever), because then I'm certain the right piece is getting the vote.

You have until the end of the day April 7 to get them to me. The favorites will be announced April 8.

Is it just me, or does the spring weather create more inspiration for creativity?

Thanks for your participation, Everyone!
