#21 - Cave (Digital Whisper)

Starting in on this I knew I wanted a chaise in a cave, and this is what evolved.  Upon completion, I wasn't sure if I liked it or not so I've been sitting on it for a few weeks.  Turns out ... I like it!  Thanks for looking!

Art Journal Caravan - #20 Understanding

I've started a new adventure and joined the Art Journal Caravan created by Tangie Baxter over at http://www.scrapbookgraphics.com/.  It's art and art journaling combined to take you on a journey of self-discovery through a different prompt every week.  This week's prompt is "Understanding".

#87 - Tranquil (Digital Whisper)

The moment I saw this figure I knew I wanted to use it somehow for this theme.  There are so many different ways to go with the color scheme but this is what spoke to me as I was creating it.  Thanks for looking and have a great week!!!

#27 - Rock Star (Digital Whisper)

I took this one literally and so much fun creating a "rock" character".  He's a bit cartoonish but definitely has that star quality!

#90 - Alley

My son traveled to Europe with his university basketball team, and he took some really great photos.  The background I used here of the alley was a photo he took in Barcelona.  It was fun to use a photo that he took for my own artistic purposes and he was pleased with the outcome, too!  Thanks so much for looking!

#28 - Sorrow (Digital Whisper)

I was hoping to capture the essence of sorrow without being too dark and yet give a glimmer of hope.  Lots of textures gave me the feel I was looking for.

#17 - Upside Down

You ever have one of those days where nothing seems to come together?  Timing is off, everything I touch seems to fall on the floor, and please don't get behind the wheel of a car.  I created this piece on that day.  Enough said.  All elements are from Finecrafted Designs and deviantscrap.com, except for the house which is from the internet.  Thanks for looking!
