Summer of Color: Blue (Twice!)

LIFE

BLUE BIRD

This is my first posting for the Summer of Color challenge. I ended up doing two digital collages and couldn't decide between them, so I'm posting both!
Note: I almost always include image credits when I post a digital collage. I use images from many sources; including my own art and photographs, and photographs taken by my husband and son. I'm not organized enough yet today to include the credits (it's Monday, after all), so if there's an image in either collage you would like to know the source of, please post a comment and I'll respond.

I love the thought behind the first one. The second one is an absolutely wonderful piece of art. Your blue phase is most successful!

They are both beautiful, I esp love the little girl writing (and would love to know where she comes from. :D)

Both are so peaceful and inviting. Great work.

I think both are really successful - having dabbled in digital art, I know the time that goes into getting the right elements in the right place and tone. They're both great!
I've been following your blog for awhile so I'm pleased to see you here as well. I stumbled upon this challenge and am looking forward to exploring color with various forms of art.

So very beautiful! I was instantly drawn to your image of the little girl with that great quote - the stairs, the drapes - so well thought out and such an inspiration. Both pieces are just wonderful - thank you for sharing, xoxo
