One World One Heart

Thanks for stopping by Natures Walk Studio during your One World One Heart tour! My name is Helen and I am a mixed media artist living in the northwestern portion of Washington State, USA. My passions are creating art, taking photographs of the gorgeous scenery around our area, and being actively involved in wildlife habitat preservation. Our yard and garden is Certified Wildlife Sanctuary through the National Wildlife Federation, a nice mix of both native and non-native plants that attracts birds year round, and inspires me daily. My art and photography are primarily focused on nature.

This year I decided to challenge myself and do some type of art every day, along with a group of similar minded artists at; the 2011 Project 365. I was inspired by a few of these Project 365 online friends to participate in One World One Heart this year.

As part of One World One Heart, I am giving away this 4x6 Gothic Arch I created to celebrate the new year... "Window to the Future"

Anyone world-wide may participate in the giveaway. You just need to be an active blogger, leave a comment, and be sure to include either your blog address or an email address so I can contact you. The winner will be announced Feb 17th, and I'll contact the winner by email as well.
UPDATE: Comments posted through Feb 17 4:00pm PST will be included in the drawing.

DRAWING IS CLOSED. Our winner is Laura from Artworks Studio

Enjoy your journey through blog-land!
