So many challenges so far this year at the Just Art site, come and join in the fun here: Just Art Scrapbooking

B is for Ballet
We have a new year long challenge … A to Z … I haven’t done A yet. Loved doing this B – Ballet page.

D is for Dragon, Arty for short
This is my D page and here is my bubble blowing dragon, Arty once again. He keeps whispering in my ear that he wants another adventure.

C is for chickens
Isn’t this rooster a proud fellow? This page was a joy to do in the middle of our winter.

Dance
Dance was done for the main monthly challenge with a fabulous dance kit from Jilbert

Happy New Year
Of course we had to bring in 2016 with gold and glitter and a bottle of champagne with Gabi’s Turn of the Year kit

Coco Chanel
Coco Chanel has always been one of my favourite designers. She introduced us to the little black dress and the chanel jacket.

Blue Winter
Blue winter was done with Gabi’s wonderful template … brrrrr, glad winter is almost gone now.

The last of the digital pages for 2015

These were done throughout the year, some for the Just Art site and some ‘just because’.

Brian apple picking
This photo is my absolutely favourite of my youngest. The day was warm, had the bluest sky and he looked so cute peaking through the tree when we were picking the apples for jelly.

Abstract circles and light
For an abstract challenge at the Just Art site

3 generations
Three generations of women … myself, my mother and my grandmother.

That is all there are for 2015. A wonderful year of digital scrapping and art.

December Digital Art, second page

There are a few more pages. This is what happens when we are too worn out from Christmas preparations and have to sit … at the computer of course and my fingers just can’t help themselves.

Merry Christmas card
One more card for Christmas.

Reason for the Season
This piece was done for my challenge at the Just Art site. Christmas is not the only celebration in December and so many celebrate differently. I thought we should celebrate those holidays through our art.

Marley's Ghost
With this Christmas Carol challenge I went the opposite way of the holiday and focused on Marley and his chains.

God Bless Us Everyone
Once my muse had finished with Marley’s ghost I could concentrate on a more Christmas type of page. What better than the Muppets at Christmas.

Get Still
This is a reflection challenge. I’ve always loved this photo taken of a dried Queen Anne’s Lace flower from our old country place and finally had a place to use it.


One more family page at Thanksgiving

Here we are again, late with our postings. From Christmas and then Life Book 2016 and a few other things that seem to get in the way … you know … life ….. it is a game of catch up. Here are December’s digital pieces.


Blue winter was made for the template challenge in December

Oh Holy Night
My favourite Christmas carol.

Christmas Hope
A Christmas challenge

Thanksgiving with the Family
Doesn’t this say it all? Good times with the family at Thanksgiving

Merry Christmas
Would it be Christmas without more Christmas cards?

I am going to add the rest with another posting, yes, I was having a great digital time at Christmas

Thanksgiving day and Friendship cards

By on 8-12-2015 in Digital Images + Collage, Just Art, Just Art Challenge

This card was created for the Just Art site to wish everybody a great holiday on the States side. Lots to be thankful for in this year of international tragedies.

Thanksgiving day card

This cute little friendship card was created for the Just Art site “use it all” challenge. We are given a mini kit and have to use every single piece, nothing else with only a photo and journaling allowed. I loved it so much I didn’t add a photo….I made the card instead

November challenges at the Just Art site

By on 8-12-2015 in Digital Images + Collage, Just Art, Just Art Challenge

I haven’t had time to post these pieces separately so thought I’d do them all at one time … November has been a busy month digitally.

This first page was done for my own challenge “your favourite book”. Wuthering Heights has always been a book that haunts me and I have read it several times. This piece is a composition of several photos from Deviant Arts site and the Morgue Files site.

Wuthering Heights

What if challenge … at first I didn’t think I would do this one because I decided years ago not to look back and ask ‘what if’. Then I thought of another way to set down these words. I’ve always loved watching the crows play in the thermals going up, up, up until they are just a speck against the blue of the sky and then soaring down in those same thermals. Crows are the only birds I have seen actually play, how awesome. The photos used in this piece are all from the Morgue Files site.

What if challenge

Stretch your wings challenge … we were to create a leaf and then use it in a page. I painted a maple leaf then added the real one with filters to create several different ones. The Maple Leaf Forever just seemed to be so right for this challenge.

Maple Leaf Forever

Middle passage and Sea Fever were created using Jilbert’s Bits of Bytes frame and brush mini kits. I chose a sailing theme for both of these pages which were the main November challenge. You can find Jil’s kits here: Jilbert’s Bits of Bytes

Middle PassageSea Fever

Mr. Wonderful is a tribute to our Canada geese who mate for life and look after their family to the death if need be. You see the gander with his head up and watching as his family feeds. He is Mr. Wonderful. This page was done during November’s progressive scrap.
