The 'Three Sisters' & the Jameison Valley ...... one of the 'touristy' spots in the Blue Mountains National Park.

Whose 'Creative Corner' I hear you ask???

Hi, I'm Chris Bennett AKA 'Chris in Oz'. I live in the beautiful Blue Mountains west of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia (affectionately known as 'Oz' or 'The Land Down-Under'). I'm in my mid-50's, have been married for 30+ years to THE most wonderful man and I'm the PROUDEST MUM of 2 grown children. My DS is into photography and has taken some amazing shots. You can see some of them in 'Simon's Gallery'. My DD is a High School teacher who is committed to educating our youth of today. I was a Teacher/Assistant Principal in the field of Special Education for over 16 years until I retired in June 2004.

I've been involved in art and craft activities for most of my life and I became a 'stampaholic' and 'technique junkie' to 'save my sanity' after an injury in 2003. I began by making cards and slowly, but surely, became addicted to ATCs, hand-made books, altered books, boxes, bottles, tins, jigsaw puzzles and anything else that stands still long enough to be altered. I love texture and colour and I'm gradually stepping outside my comfort zone to experiment and explore other media and styles. Check out 'My Gallery' to see some more of my work.

Oh, I forgot to mention that I also take photos, I don't know how 'good' my photos are, but I just love to take them ...... so every now and then I might just sneak one in ...... I hope you don't mind!!! Well, not too much!!! LOL!!!

One World - One Heart Update

OMG, I've received over 100 comments so far. How 'kewl' is that!!! I've decided to add another give-away. In fact, I'm going to add another give-away for every 100 comments I receive, I just love this whole idea. I'm not sure what it'll be yet. I hope you'll all like whatever I decide on - it could be anything similar to the 'art' displayed on my blog.

Maybe the 'gift' will be like one of these:

An Altered Tin

An Altered Canvas Frame

An Altered Art Shrine

A 'Date to Remember' Folio

An 'ATC Keeper Starbook'

To win one of my give-aways, all you have to do is visit my previous post here and leave a comment. How easy is that???

BTW how many of the other wagons from the 'Gypsy Caravan' have you visited??? Don't forget the OWOH event concludes on February 12th. Come on, you don't know what you're missing out on!!! Excitement is just one 'click' away!!! Be brave, be adventurous, travel the world and meet new friends, like I have!!!

Until next time......

Chris in Oz

Hi Chris, Love all of your creations but am especially drawn to the altered canvas frame. I am guessing that you used fantasy film on it.

Also like your shrine. I am looking for inspirations for shrines as I have to make one.
