Oma Linda's Altered Oz Blog Party

Hi Everyone ;o) Hope you're having a great day ;o) Well, I have to admit, when Oma Linda said for this year in celebrating The Wizard Of Oz, she wanted to do things Altered, I was worried! I was thinking match boxes, with thimbles and ribbon! LOL! Then Oma Linda said to me, depicting my crows, the way I do, doing something that is impossible for a crow to do, is altered art in its truest form. I never thought of my art that way! She is such a smart cookie ;o) So, I wasn't worried anymore! ;o)

I got my 5" x 4" canvas and my 3 wooden buttons.

I stared at them for awhile and then I thought I would start sketching out a baby crow tin man with a heart behind him. Then I thought, he would be lonely, so I sketched him with a baby crow scarecrow and had them on the yellow brick road.
Then, I started to follow the yellow brick road ;o)

Painted my buttons, for the flowers ;o)
Glued them on ;o) One, on each side ;o)

 "We're Off To See The Wizard"

I had so much fun!! Thanks Oma Linda!!! Please, go to this link, to continue with the fun ;o) But, wait, before you go.....would you like to own this painting? Well, you can ;o) All you have to do, in your comment, is state, that you Want It!!! ;o) The giveaway will end Sunday March 17th and I will announce the winner on Monday March 18th ;o)
Have a great time at the party everyone ;o)

  2. Oh dearest sweet Stacy, you done Oz proud. I think lots of folks have a slight fear of the "altered" word. Now you know it ain't no thing. And you did, as always, a fabulous job with the crowlings. I would love to own yet another piece of your delicious art. I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't.
    Thank you so much for participating in this silly wonderful Celebration of all things Oz. You made it very special indeed.
    Smooches and Squoozes, Oma Linda

  10. I love crows and these are delightful! I'd love to have a chance at it - the Scarecrow Crow especially is a hoot (to mix up my bird metaphors)!

  12. You've made me squeal and cry at the same time. The first I haven't done in quite some time and the latter I've done much out of sadness. Today, I cried because I'm happy. Yellow and green were my little brother's favorite colors. I know your painting has nothing to do with him, but it feels nice to see him in something pretty and fun ;-)

    Add my name to the hat!

    Happy aLtEReD oZ ;-)

  19. LoVe the way you altered the characters taking a blank canvas and buttons you altered simple into sublime.. It felt like I was sitting at the art desk with you as you progressed along! Stacy, please include me in the draw for your wonderful take on Altered Oz, it really captures the unexpected fun of Oz... But DEFINATELY, in an 'altered' way :)
