I entered a contest and you can help me win!!

This was my entry!
Hi everyone!

Just wanted to let you know that I entered a contest and I would love for you to vote for me and help me win!!

The rules were that we could create anything we wanted as long as we incorporated this beautiful image called "Beauty's Lot" published in London sometime between 1760 and 1810. The inscription at the bottom is in French. The image "Beauty's Lot" shown above was to be incorporated in to an "original" piece of art work done by the artist and owned by the artist. We could incorporate it any way that we wanted whether we transfered, scraped, painted or whatever into our oun piece of work. The art can be any size and medium.I did an acrylic painting. I wish that we were able to click on each entry to enlarge them and see what medium they picked to do theirs in. But I am putting mine on here!
Thanks for your vote!


  1. Aaahhh! I love your take on the contest! And so appropriate for the title of the old piece.

    Hopping over there to vote!

  2. Yea! Thanks for the vote! It was a fun project! I don't usually enter contests, but, it was a good time.

  3. ...and just then my internet connection pooped out on me.

    I voted just now and you are in second place. That's just wrong - we need to get you into first place because clearly your entry is the best. ;o)

    Mind if I post about the contest and include your picture in my blog?

  4. By all means, blog away! Feel free to harass any and all friends and acquaintances too! :)
    Thanks for your help!!

  5. Oh my gosh Denise! I voted for your entry yesterday without even knowing you'd created it!! What a small world. You're doing quite well and I really hope you win - it's a fabulous creation and you're so talented!!

  6. Awwh Geez thanks!
    I am still behind and I believe I have tapped out all of my relatives! :) I think they are happy for caller ID at this point! Ha! I really didn't think I was this competitive.
    Well, fingers crossed!
    Thanks for the vote!

  7. Hey Denise, When is the deadline for voting? If it's not too late I'd like to squeeze it into my blog for Friday since I have to post about the winner of the contest tomorrow. Let me know if you can - thanks! Sharon

  8. Hi Sharon,
    voting goes until Oct 3rd! I am 11% behind at this point! Nail biting stuff! :) OH MY GOSH! IT ENDS TOMORROW!!
