Digitally Combined Doodles (for whoever is still reading this blog)

4 of my hand-drawn circle doodles, digitally combined into one, using various blending modes and filters. Looks like a rug!

Somerset Studio Magazine!

Yes, it's been almost a year since I posted here. I've missed my online friends!

I've put aside digital art, for the most part, to concentrate on "hands-on" mixed media art in addition to my usual art journaling. One serendipitous result: A collage I created will appear in the new July/August issue of Somerset Studio. The challenge was to create art with a paper doll theme. The issue comes out tomorrow (July 1). The magazine is usually sold at Barnes and Noble, Michael's, Joann, Queen's Ink, etc.

A sneak peek:

Sunday Postcard Art: Strong Women

I've been taking a little bit of a break, I guess. But this theme sounded interesting, and it's something new.
