One World One Heart 2011

Welcome to my blog!  It's once again time for the One World One Heart event!  I'm Dianne Adams and I enjoy making a wide variety of mixed media items.  Please take a few minutes to visit my blog and I hope you'll come back often.  If you'd like to know more about OWOH, please click on the badge or go to this link.

The painted heart ornament is made of painted/stenciled paper.  It features vintage clip art, magazine clippings and embroidery stitches.

This event is open to all bloggers worldwide.  It gives all those who blog a chance to meet and visit blogs that we might not otherwise have visited.  What a great way to form lasting connections with other bloggers. A special thank you to Lisa Swifka who has made this event a reality for five years. Please leave a comment to this post and make sure there is a way for me to contact you.  I'd love to visit your blog and if you win I'll need a way to contact you!  The winner will be announced February 17 here on my blog and the winner will be emailed.  Good luck and let the fun begin!
