Collage Obsession: Word Art (Food-related)

Last weekend my husband brought me back lots of delicious, gorgeous chocolate from Switzerland. I'm sure that's what inspired my food choice for this word art challenge. Good thing I have a Zumba class this morning!

This week's theme at SPA is the Hindu festival of lights, Diwali. Learning about this holiday was a new experience for me. I found an image of Diwali lantern lights on Google Images, and combined it with a background by shadowhouse.

Soartful Challenge: Monochromatic Red

The theme this month at Soartful, where I'm on the creative team, is "Monochromatic Red." Since red is one of my favorite colors, I loved doing this digital piece. Here's what I created.


The image of the ballet dancers is from a photo on Flickr Creative Commons by Oude School. The pattern in the background is from artefacts. The curtained background is also from Flickr Creative Commons.

Please join us at Soartful for this beautiful challenge!
