EBW September Challenge - "Lions and Tigers and Bears, OH MY!"

Ann of FrancescasFancy, challenged us to create a piece for "Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!" Walk on your wild side and unleash your inner beast! Find inspiration in any animal of your choice, and then, add an element of magic and mystery from the books or movie, The Wizard of Oz.

Use your wildlife in any way you like. It might be a face, silhouette, a foot or paw print, scary or humorous pose, or whatever you find interesting. Then add a hint of the Emerald City with a splash of green, or walk the beads in steps made by the ruby slippers. You might weave the yellow brick road, or the flying monkeys may swing into your work. Maybe you twist a creation reminiscent of a tornado, with swirling colors in chaos.
There are an abundance of iconic elements to draw from. You could play on one of the many themes of Dorothy's journey in her search for a way home. The only requirements are to have an animal represented and something from the magical land of Oz.

Please vote for your favorite entry in the EBW Blog:

My entry is #14

The June EBW Challenge - Heal the World

The June 2011 challenge, chosen by Anna Hatvani, invited our members to create original designs inspired by the theme "Heal the World."
Voting for the challenge runs June 9th - June 15th, 2011. Please visit EBW Blog and vote for your favorite, here:

"Many of us work or volunteer at animal shelters, churches, and in other social fields, and all of us experience daily the wounds of the Earth. Imagine the future our children will inherit: nuclear catastrophes, epidemics, extinct species, environment pollution, wasted water and energy, the effects of Global Warming, child abuse, and wars all around...."

My entry is #11, PEACE on EARTH

Conflict and aggression are extremes that lead to death, to disappearance of humanity, of animals, of plants. War is conflict of power. The way good is able to stand up against evil defines us as humans. Every single person should be the drop that makes the ocean.

Artists are known for always standing up against war through works of art symbolizing the spirit of peace. I hope my little "Peace on Earth" brooch will be able to raise awareness against evil in the world.
