Art Creations Friday Challenge 88- Little Boy






(original image)


Yes, it's yet another art challenge submission. I'm really hooked on doing these. The BEST part is: no set-up of materials, no clean-up!

This challenge was from artcreationsfriday (http://artcreationsfriday.blogspot.com/2010/09/challenge-88.html). The first photo above is my creation; the second is the photo we were given to work with. I thought the little boy looked so lonely...I gave him a friend to keep him company, and an occasion to celebrate.

Collage Obsession Challenge #25- "Portrait"





The first photo above is my digital collage for this week's Collage Obsession challenge. The second photo is the original image we were given to work with. I have several thoughts about the possible "meaning" of my collage, but would much rather hear what my blog readers think. Any ideas?

Dream



I created this collage in response to challenge #23 on the Collage Obsession blog (http://collageobsessionchallenge.blogspot.com/). The theme is "Dream," and the image of the woman was supplied if we chose to use it. Some time ago I had created (and posted here) the "Red House" collage, and the dreaming woman seemed to fit in well. So I tucked her in the corner and blended her in, where hopefully she continues to peacefully dream.
(House and bird images are from graphicsfairy.com.)
