Wow - has it been that long?

I've had major issues with my computer - I really hate when that happens! I've been busy with my new favorite - making jewelery. I just put a new necklace on etsy... please take a look. Here is a photo.
I've been doing alot with beads and my soldered pieces. I just can't sit still - always have to be doing something. And not being able to play backgammon on-line has been killing me. Stayed tuned - I will upload more soon.

This church is a photo I took and altered. The background is something I made a long time ago with embossing powder, ink and photo paper (so it melted a bit) and of coarse its altered. Love to alter!

Choices! Choices!

What shall I pick? is my newest digital. A little mix of all sorts of bits and pieces make up a cute little collage. Which one would you pick?

Make it Monday - Fairy Girl!

Lisa's picked a fun challenge this week. You've seen this little girl before (she is my favorite) and I added one of my flower photo and made some leaves too. And of coarse it's digital!

And now for something different!

This was a lesson in transparency. I am amazed at just what this program will do! This is "At the Beach".

Variations on a theme

I tried to do something different, but kept a lot of the same elements. This one I call "memories".

Digimation Challenge

Just joined a new group specifically for digital artists. This works better for me since I don't have to use anyone's collage sheets and everyone is digital. The group is Digimation and they have a terrific group of artists. The August challenge is "hope", and this is my entry. What do you think?

Go Make Something Monday - Green

Here is this weeks challenge. The bunny and the flowers are my photographs. The flowers weren't very sharp to start, so they have a very soft look to them. Much different from my vintage collages?

Time flies when you're having fun

This is my latest digital collage. Still learning how to use my program but I think it's getting much better. What do you think?

Bird Condos

Lastest digital design. I just love birds and their houses. Mix it with vintage designs and that makes a good idea.

Time for Dinner at the Nest

Just got the bottle collage from - she has a terrific selection of digital collages that I've not seen before. Definately need to take a look if you like collage sheets!

What a beauty!

This my aunt, circa 1924, who won a beauty contest.

Butterfly Girl!

Yes, I am loving this program! The more I play - the more I love it. Easier to play with vintage images, then I'll start playing with mine. Stay tuned!

Two are much better than one!

The blue flowers are back!

You all know how much I love those blue flowers. This is a combo image - digital of coarse!

At the Beach

Playing again, this time the background is one of my photos at the beach. Okay, so I started reading the manual. Learning more!

Surprise - no blue flowers!

On Go Make Something Lisa Volrath has a challenge to create art inspired by men. I have played with this image of the soldier, but now that I have this new program, I was able to pull all sorts of things in with it. I'm happy with the results.

Still loving those blue flowers!

I'm not one to read directions when I get something new, so I keep playing around. This is fun!

Saturday, June 21, 2008

Oh Boy!

Here's another one! Can you tell I like the blue flowers?

New Digital Art!

Bought a new editing program and boy am I having fun with it. The image is from Paper Imagery and the rest is images I have collected. Can't wait to play more!

Finally! Pictures from Art & Soul

I couldn't find the cable to download my photos till just about 1/2 hr ago. I looked everywhere - I hate when that happens!

I took 3 classes with Sally Jean Alexander - the queen of solder! This was the 2nd class, little pink houses. There was 24 of us, and each house was totally different! Mine is the first one. We started with putting together the collages, then wrapped then soldered it together. I would love to make more of these! We lined them up and lit them - you really can't see how cool that was. Sally Jean is a fabulous instructor and I learned lots - although it will take a lot of soldering to even be a speck of a talent that she is. Her husband was terrific too! I didn't take any other pictures than these. I did take a bunch of pictures at the beach, early in the morning. Maybe I'll post some later.

Been Busy!

I joined a swap at the "In our house" Yahoo group. This swap is for extreme inchies with a spring theme. I did this box for the hostess, Suzie, and to house my inchies in. I hope my partners like them!

I have also been busy painting - and here are the two latest. I have also listed them on Etsy.

New Play Toy

Someone told me about Photoshop Express - it's online and it's free! Try it out. I don't have photoshop, so I am very impressed.

Inchie Charms!

These are for a swap on Swap-bot. Start with an inchie then anything goes. A butterfly printed transparency, alcohol inks, adirondack paints on the back, then attached with mini brads, primo flowers, a paperclip, and of coarse fibers for fun!

Newest Etsy painting

I just listed this on etsy. Its an acrylic on canvas board and it was very difficult to get a good shot. I am not religiuos at all, but I really love this image.

3-(C)D Fashion Art-Swap-Bot-"Time to find your mojo"

Here is my newest swap on Swap-bot. It was to do a cd with some sort of fashion image. I had gotten this AOL tin and I started with that. I'm sure you can tell I love bird things. For the cd I used a clear one so the backside of the vinatge dictionary page shows through the front. I hope my swap partner likes her package!

At the bottom there are some dangly things - a "K" for the recipent, a key, a brass tag - create and a brass tag - joy.

Festival March - newest addition to Etsy

This is a new 8x10 canvas board - Festival March. The birds are hand colored and the tree is hand painted. Fun to put together (totally enamored with birds) I painted the leaves with Lumiere so it really sparkles.
