Take a Word: Australia!

This week's challenge is in honor of Marie (Ozstuff), who waves her magic wand from Australia each week to create and maintain the wonderful "Take a Word" challenge. The challenge is celebrating its 3rd anniversary at the end of this month. Marie is also one-third of the "Three Muses", who have a long-running online art challenge. She's also the mastermind behind the Flickr challenge sites, "Digitalmania" and "Drawing a Fine Line." I have no idea how she finds the time to do all this, but I'm very glad she does.

Image credits for my digital thank-you to Marie are: dover designs, google images, media militia, and an "aboriginal" style background created by me for an Artful Journaling class awhile ago.

Soartful Challenge: Patchwork Quilt

Here's my digital collage on the theme of "Patchwork Quilt" for Soartful this week. All patterns shown on the quilt were designed by me, using either Photoshop Elements, my Gelli plate, watercolor, or my iPad. This was an extra-fun challenge!
