We are back after a year’s respite and too much to do

By on 3-09-2016 in digital art and scrapbooking site, Digital Images + Collage, Just Art, Just Art Challenge

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Other, more important things had taken my attention until now. I have been working on a new paper doll so there will be variations throughout the year … watch for them. I have also been working on Sebastian Michael’s Photoshop Artistry Course and will post my challenges here so you can take a peak at the progress you go through with a digital course. I have just picked back up the Life Book 2016 course again as well and of course summer is now here. Glad to be back after such a long time.

Life Book 2016, April lessons

There are only 3 lessons for April, one week was a wonderful interview with Roben Marie Smith. April was a wonderful month of new techniques and depth.

Ripple effect, honoring your story

Ripple effect was created with Tamara Laporte … honouring our story in life and how it effects others as we go along.

Your Life

Your life with Roxanne Coble was an interesting exercise. I do not work with many dark colours so found a compramise with a dark burgundy because I wanted to embrace the lesson and learn. In the end it was a very interesting lesson in design.

Reframing your story

Reframing your story with Effy Wild was a delight to do although once again I decided on a colour other than black … I chose a metalic blue. I love how the colours shine in this piece.

Earth burns while man fiddles … Alberta fires

The fires in Alberta as well as British Columbia and Saskatchewan are the first time Canada has had to face the fact of global warming where it’s been to such a drastic extreme. Climatic heat is driving the fires along with wind and no rain. It is the rain that will finally put these fires out. The number of selfless people fighting these fires with no sleep and beyond exhaustion is numbing. How long can they keep it up ? Will the oil sands finally ignite? The animal MAN has created this scenario, ignoring all warnings. This piece puts everything I feel into one page. Mother Nature looking out at us with disbelief as she burns … on Mother’s day.

One year anniversary at the Just Art site, page 2

More challenges for April, this birthday month was very busy. The African Queen was created for the letter Q in the A to Z challenge. I love the colour blast of this page.

African Queen

You know those photos of family when they decide to do something silly …. this is one of those times and I told this fellow “you know that’s going to be scrapped don’t you?” … It was a fun page to do, glad my boys can still want to play.

Easter Brat

Young woman and pretty lady were created for the stamp challenge. I combined two challenges again with young woman, using a kit supplied by Gabbi Designs.

Young Woman

Pretty lady is an aunt when she was young. The image is a portrait of her.
