blue ribbon bloggers

Karen and I went to the Nevada County Fair tonight. It was so much fun. We went on a date so that we could eat and look at all the exhibits. Our little fair is just that... a great little small town fair where the animals and exhibits come first and the food comes a close second... cinnamon rolls, corn dogs and funnel cakes are just a few of the great items to taste!
I could not enter anything into the fair because I live in Placer County... but i did get to enter vicariously through the inspired works of my friends and creative Sierra ATC club members. So, i am delighted to take you on a virtual tour of my friends great works of art.....
Judith won third place for her fabulous altered album cover with a mixed media feel to it. Love this
Judith also entered one of her fabulous appliqued jackets... this one with a Laurel Birch flair and lots of great fish charms.
Ok, onto the exhibits. Here is Paula with her SECOND PLACE winning scrapbook page.
And here is KAREN.... beaming with pride and showing us her SECOND PLACE winning zentangled wine bottle. She won this award under Novice Drawing.... so so proud of her!
Here is the winebottle close up with the ribbon!!!
And just a bit closer... so great Karen, good job!
I loved the ribbon and the little wine charm.
The theme for the fair was "Rooted in Tree-dition"... and this ATC card was perfectly done by Paula and depicted the theme beautifully. However.... NO ATC card even placed a frist,second or third place ribbon. They just don't get it yet.... we have to educate them in the art of the Artist Trading Card... next year our little group will take the show.
These cards above are from Gail P... she won the FIRST PLACE ribbon for a series of cards... all really great!
A fabulous Karen S ATC card entwined in netting and glitter...
Above is a Karen S ATC card that i loved... but the photo didn't turn out too good, it had a paint brush attached to the side with paint dried on it and then a painting next to it. Beautiful....
Above is one of my favorite's of Karen S's ATC's that she collage paper on and made a great outer envelope to put it in.
These (above) are Karen S's trio of ATC cards that she entered. I always love her work.
Here is a close up of Paula's embroidered PEACE ATC card... love the message and the colors.
Karen B. won SECOND PLACE for her great stamped snowmen card.... super duper cute!
