Combining or fusing images and elements creatively with beautiful results

LOVE (A 2-Way Street) ~ $20 voucher

This challenge closed over 3 years ago.

The Challenge

EMOTION is the focus of this challenge…

The Two Sides of Love; pick the ecstasy or pick the heartbreak, it’s up to you.

If Valentines Day was filled with hearts and flowers, chocolates and balloons, love and kisses ~ here’s your chance to celebrate the joy! If, as all too often happens, it was not… well, you get the point. Either way, all entries should convey FEELING to the viewer, whether blissful and romantic ~ or the darker side when things go wrong and you are left to wonder why you ever bothered and you’re sure you never will again.

Remember, all entries must be BLENDS in keeping with the focus of the group; two or more elements combined (your choice of media).

Judging / Voting Criteria

Look for artistic excellence and MOOD. Work should instill some EMOTION when you see it based on your experience with love ~ for better or for worse! You may vote for more than one.

No Padding of the Ballot Box! Soliciting votes, either via Facebook or by Bubblemail, will disqualify your entry and result in your expulsion from the group! It may sound harsh, but it’s FRAUD; so let the artwork win on merit, not on popularity!

Rewards & Prizes

Winner gets a winner’s banner, special mention on our Group Home Page and all due bragging rights… in addition to a $20 voucher from the Bubble! He or she will also be among our Featured Artists in the group.

Ties are recognized so if we have more than one, all winners win!

If we have more than 25 entries we will also recognize the Top 10. Less than that, and we will recognize the Top 5 (who also get a banner and a mention on our Group Home Page).

Additional Information

Please be sure your work is in the group.

In keeping with our basic rules, no gore ~ no porn ~ no brutality! Dark feelings, yes. But blood, brutality and gore are not accepted in the group. Remember the 2 B’s… Blended and Beautiful.

Any entries deemed offensive or otherwise unsuitable will be removed at the discretion of the hosts.

We have all walked the 2-way street of Love, so let us see your version of the trip (and what better way to deal with emotions, than in art?) We hope you’ll have some fun with this, as well!
