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!

Soft and subtle, feathered and wispy. This is my entry for the digital-whisper challenge # 88 (Soft). Imagery for this collage is from Dover books, personal photos of dandelions, feathered imagery and digital coloring with brushes and artistic filters in Photoshop. I was inspired by the mutitude of dandelions in my spring garden right now (even though they are weeds) I find them beautiful and the essence of softness.

This is my entry for the digital-whisper challenge #23 ( Hunted). Imagery credits are from Dover- I added wings and digital coloring, wikimedia, Metal Momma, Holliewood and Down under Studios at Deviant art. I wanted to create a sense of flight, escape but with a sense of cunning and awareness.

This is my entry for theme #77 (Past Days) at digital-whisper. I wanted to recreate the feeling I use to have when I was young and would go through old photos, newspaper clippings and letters that my Grandmother had- it all seemed so mysterious and ancient and like pieces of a puzzle that needed to be assembled. Sadly my Mother and Grandmother were not great at keeping these clippings and most are lost now. But I can and do keep albums and mementos for my son of our life and significant events and have tried to instill a sense of history and family for him and his future family. Imagery credits go to Rosey Posey at Scrapbookgraphics, e-vint.com and Christine Renee.

Brigid of the oracles,
Brigid of the twisted hair,
Brigid, friend to woman,
Brigid of the fire.

Brigid of the fire's fuel,
Brigid of the cloak,
Brigid of the tender hands,
Brigid of the oak.

This is my entry for the digital-whisper challenge #62 "Magic".
Magic is always present - like electricity we need to know how to harness it and use it for the greater good. Our intentions and affirmations of nature, love, good will and the power to change are all manifestations of magic. Summoning our gifts and sharing them is magic at its best!

The Memory Keeper

This is my entry for the digital-whisper challenge (Memory # 11). Some steampunk elements were used here to create a feeling of time, memory and introspection. Clockwork imagery and background from Finecrafted Designs and imagery from Dover books.

This is my entry for the digital-whisper 100 themes challenge ( #100 Secrets). This wonderful old image came from L'espirit du cirque and Holliewood at deviantart scrap combined with gradient filters and digital coloring in Photoshop. Loved the character and 'knowing' expression on these women. Someone has a secret.....

Background imagery from Collage Obsession, scrapbookgraphics, Christine Rennee broken frame images and posterized and soft light filters in Photoshop. Artistic digital brushes added.
