Summer of Color: Yellow




This week's challenge is yellow, and we were also challenged to add a touch of something metallic.  I used one of my favorite techniques: using digital touches to add to and embellish my own hand-drawn art. The rubber-stamped woman's face in the center is by Hampton Art Stamps. The Zentangle-inspired art surrounding this image is my original creation. Most of the patterns that fill the leaves and flowers are from my original art as well, as is the yellow textured background border. The gold antique heart charm image is by Miss Mint.

I love your intermingling of digital and hand art! The Zentangle inspired doodles and art bits are so creative - I think I need to give this technique a try since I also love to play around with digital. Thanks for your kind comments on my digital mosaic!
