Sunday Postcard Art: Sepia

You knew I couldn't just use sepia, right? I had to add a color...just had to! Image credits for this digital collage: grungetextures, clearly vintage, pringle hill studios, digital collage studio, SJD.

Summer of Color: Baseball Nut

This week's ice-cream-themed challenge is Baseball Nut ice cream, described by Baskin-Robbins as: "A smooth, vanilla flavored ice cream swirled with a black raspberry ribbon and loaded with cashews." Here's an image of it:
 


My digital collage below is dedicated to all the "baseball nuts" in my life- and there are several very close to me :). Image credits: artefacts, google images, kim klassen.




 

Collage Obsession: Yellow

This week's CO challenge involves one of my favorite colors: Yellow. It's the color of bright summer days, cheerful flowers, and sunshine. Here's my digital collage:

Collage Obsession: Inspired by TV or Movies


Years ago, when the TV show "Dallas" was first on the air, my husband and I were addicted to it. Now a new version is being shown here in the US. I can't say it's great (nothing can match the novelty and campiness of the first one), but we've been watching it for old times' sake. My digital collage below is a tribute to the show.

Soartful Challenge: Ocean Theme/ Blues, Turquoise, Greens, Sand

It's my turn again to host the Soartful challenge for the next two weeks. I've chosen an "Ocean" theme, using beach-related colors. You can visit the challenge blog at  http://jeanette-soartfulchallenges.blogspot.com/  and participate, or view what others have created.

Here's my digital collage for this theme. Image credits: Holliewood, Wikimedia Commons, and my own shell photos for the background.

Three Muses: Out of Bounds

This week the Three Muses challenge us to create art that goes "outside the box." In the case of digital art, this means not confining your design to a square or rectangle; i.e., letting the design go outside of the usual frame. Here's my attempt (I guess I'm still thinking about the Queen's Jubilee!) Image credits: holliewood, graphicsfairy.

Summer of Color 2012: Rainbow Sherbet


"Summer of Color" is starting again! This year the theme is "ice cream colors" (yum). The first week's colors are the colors of rainbow sherbet: bright pinks, oranges, yellows, and a touch of white. So here's my "Rainbow Sherbet Circus" digital collage. Image credits upon request.

Take a Word: Floral

For this challenge, I altered a recent digital collage with a floral theme by including a very stylish woman from the cover of an old Theater magazine (also altered by me). The magazine cover image is from magazineart.org.

Three Muses: Warm Colors/ Summer

For this digital collage, I blended a photo I took on the beach in Tel Aviv with two backgrounds from Digital Scrap. I hope our summer isn't as blazing hot as the scene in my collage.
