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

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.

One year birthday at the Just Art site

Happy birthday Just Art! It’s been a whole year since this site was created. Time flies when you are having fun. I created Photoshop brushes and some elements for my mixed media paper dolls challenge. What fun this challenge was, members created a parade of delightful dolls for this challenge. These two are mine.

More birthday fun with the this or that challenge. I chose a vintage photo of myself and my sister’s two dogs as the main feature. I don’t usually work in such bright colours so this was a big challenge for me.

This or that

This page was created for the Astrology challenge.

Sound of the Rain was done for the vignette challenge. I decided to do it a bit differently and added the word rain to this photo taken when the rain came teaming and streaming in on our driveway and we could hardly see out the window.

N is for nautilus, one more page for the A to Z challenge

N-nautilus

Our 3D word challenge this month was the word celebrate. I put two challenges together to create this page

celebrate

Dragon tales … my little bubble blowing dragon, Arty, is growing and wanted another adventure. After a rain shower he gathered all around him, including a new little girl dragon called Strawberry. A friend he was introduced to at Christmas. Arty is relating the Tigger story to them and they are enraptured. This page was created for April’s progressive scrap.

This photo was taken by my eldest son. The bright red of the anthuriums was perfect for this challenge.

Lesson of the birds was a colour palette challenge, suggesting a vintage page. I chose to do a college.

K is for Koala, created for the A to Z challenge
K - Koala

Energy … the Energy challenge once again and this time I use the reflection as well to create a page of solar power.

Energy

M is for Maya Angelou, one of my favourite poets. She will live forever in her words.

M . Maya Angelou

At Christmas the cat was sleeping on the dog’s bed and I decided it would make a great subject for March’s progressive scrap.

I was sure it said Meow

March at the Just Art site

March was still full of blowing and snow and very very cold. What better way to keep warm than to work on digital art. Irish blessing for St. Patrick’s day. I added my recipe for Irish soda bread … yummy

Irish Blessing

This little pocket page was so much fun. I have had these photos of the bunny and ground hog who came out to graze at the same time and their reaction towards each other was hilarious. Now they have their story.

Who Are You

I is for Ireland, a perfect I word for March. This page was done for the A to Z challenge

I - Ireland

I love these images of Godey’s Ladies fashion plates and when I saw Jilbert Designs challenge this month I fell in love and thought the pages would fit a quilt with the ladies .. I was right.

Godey's Ladies

A reflection challenge this month and I thought of this photo I have of a dawn that was absolutely glorious at our old country place several years ago … love the reflection as it reminds me of frozen, ice covered snow.

Winter dawn

J is for Jazz …. all that jazz. Bob Fosse and Fred Astaire created a beautiful, sparkly era of glitz and music. This page celebrates both.

All that Jazz

Energy Lost was created for the word art challenge. When I saw this photo at the Morgue Files site I just had to turn the word around and use it. This old fellow sure has earned a good retirement. I hope he got it.
