Echoes Writing Challenge Winner
Well, I've received some wonderful responses to the writing challenge I issued. To choose a winner, I used an online random number generator. And the winner is ...
#11 - Andrea Cumming from Leschenault, Western Australia! She won a $5 discount from our AuthorOne online bookstore. Congrats Andrea!!!
The FMQ Challenge will be done in a couple days. Those of you who have completed the 14 day continuous FMQing, let me or Joanne know by leaving a comment. Two lucky winners will be chosen sometime this week.
For my bits of FMQ over the past (4 - really?) days, I worked a small bit everyday on the Star Table topper. I finished the last two corners and then put feathers in one of the big wedges. I still have a bit of background work to do there. That was three days, actually. The fourth day, I took a break and fooled around with an old sample I had. It was one of the first FMQ things I did (you can tell by the funny shaped feather petals). I wanted to see if I could make something ugly into something decent. I did okay. If I go liberated or artsy with the rest of this piece, I think it'll work. I can also add embellishments to it to hide what ugly is still there. I liked working with this because it enabled me to see how far I'd come. Just look at that echoing!!! I'm not fantastic now, but I'm loads better than that! I think I'll try some alternate coloring in the echoes to see if I can get that better looking.
As far as my writing, I've been hard at work on the Grand Falls photo book. I'm happy to report that I think it's finished. We'll see when the next proof copies come.
