Global Talent Search 2014

This year I decided to enter Lilla Roger's Global Talent Search. Although I did not make it to the top 50 short list, I really enjoyed working on this project. The theme was "terrarium" and one of the criteria was including some kind of saying or at least one word. I really put a lot of thought into this project but after seeing everyone else's submissions, I felt my final piece was really lacking. I realized I still have a lot to learn and a long way to go. I may have the skills in execution, but I really need to push further to develop my pieces. Please check out the full gallery here: FULL GALLERY or TOP 50.

Here is my piece and a few close ups:

I also wanted to apologize to my readers for the lack up updates. I've found it hard to keep on it with my blog posts mostly due to the demands of a full time job and being a full time mom. I do appreciate those who do visit. I've currently been bit by the "filofax/planner" bug so I'm hoping that I'll be able to post some entries on that.
