March at the Just Art site

By on 10-06-2015 in digital art and scrapbooking site, Digital Images + Collage, Just Art, Just Art Challenge

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.

broken promises
I slipped this one in here … I created this piece in January just because, it’s not a challenge piece.

Valentine
A valentine for my valentine challenge. What would February be without a valentine.

E - Eastern Box Turtle
Turtles are my favourite animal, being a turtle myself. This was done for the A to Z year long challenge.

Calico
The journaling says it all for this little one. This was a scraplift challenge.

Spring
With heaps of snowbanks all around us spring was still just a whisper. Created for the variety challenge.

Vincent Van Gogh
Vincent Van Gogh is my favourite artist. This piece was done for the quote challenge.

When we were young
This piece was done for an ad challenge. We chose a vintage ad and used that as our scraplift.

Circus
This exciting, vivid page was created for the colour wheel challenge.

February was a busy month so I’ve split it up into two parts.

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.

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

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

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.
