This is for the September challenge by Meredith featured artist of the month , " Rise to the Occasion! "

Here is my take on the September challenge for Bombshells artist of the month Meredith . Her challenge was to do something 3D or 2D and it could be a card ,altered book or art journal page , so I chose to do a altered book . This book I art journal in when I just have to get something off my chest in that very second that Im annoyed with someone or something LOL! I always turn to this altered book , so I thought it was about time I did the front cover and this challenge was perfect for it . The book to me sybolized that Im putting in the book what is poisoning me LOL! so I thought that should be the background and I put the skull heads on the edges cuz its eating my heart that is golden and then theres the sacred heart which is in gold as well that symbolizes its still sacred to me no matter how hard the poison tries to get in .
I hope you liked my take on Merediths challenge and go check out the Bombshell site , right now they are having a blog hop and you win something if ya hop along so head on over when ya get a chance , but don't wait to long cuz it ends today .
Thanks for coming by next month I will be the Artist of the month so stay tuned for some fun ! : P
Until the next blog , thanks Maryann k.
