This is a special Art Journal created for the 100 themes Challenge at Digital Whisper. We have been given 100 different themes to inspire and create digital collage art over the course of a year. All of my art is created in Photoshop Elements 7 and is made using personal photos, stock photos, copyfree and digital kit imagery. All sources will be noted in the post. Please enjoy and watch this journal grow!

to call my true love to my dance.

Lemon Tree

Well after about three steady weeks of gardening and planting I had to come in from the sun and do some artwork!  This is my entry for the Digital Whisper 100 themes ( #10 Lemon Tree). I indeed have several lemon trees (made fresh squeezed lemonade from them this week) in my yard, and the lemons used in this piece are photos from my tree but digitally altered (posterized) along with imagery from Beth Rimmer, Dover and Holliewood at Deviant art scraps. Glorious summer (if a bit too hot already ) is upon us!!

Sacred Play

This is my entry for the Digital Whisper 100 themes challenge #48 "Childhood". This beautiful vintage photo from Magic Moonlight Free imagery  just touched my heartstrings when I think about how special my dolls were to me in my childhood. From  my "Thumbelina" baby doll , Raggedy Ann and later on to Barbie, Ken, Skipper and Scooter and even my assorted Troll dolls all gave me a sense of comfort and sacred play. Other added lace imagery from Scrapbookfraphics.
