Stripped and happy


Stripes.....
is this weeks challenge theme at Take a Word.






I had a play in the digital program I use to create a stripped background, I didn't want straight lines,
 but I did want happy colours. 

Its been quite dull and gloomy here these past few days, 
bright colours lightened a grey  day.

Thank you for calling in, your comments are always appreciated and you are always welcome here.

Its only a number


This weeks theme for 
The Take a Word challenge is..........Numbers.

This is my digital page which had me thinking about how many times actors had to act out the scenes before the directors were satisfied with how it looked.
I think I can relate to this as it did take me quite a time to layer this page
 until I was happy with the result.

Thank you for calling in today, you are most welcome here.

Autumn in Paris


I have made this digital  Tag for the current challenge theme over at

The current theme  of
 'Autumn'  over at the

 that I could join into three challenges.


This is a slightly different version of the tag, with some extra added autumn leaves.
The butterflies have flown away as the leaves change colour and the air gets cooler.

.............................

This second page is  just in time to join Jo over at 
for one last time this month.
The theme is Poetry in Motion where we were asked to be inspired by a poem, quote, song or saying.



It did start its life as a page in my journal, but had so many layers  added to it in my digital program it is hard to say what came from where.
I do know that I really like the quote I used...
You can do it,
just spread your wings and fly.

I wonder how far the little creature sitting on the mushroom will get when he tries his wings to fly.

Set yourself free



Its not often that I manage  to create a digital page that will fit two challenges ,
I started making this page for AJJ, by using this quote   of  Frida Kallo's.

It  fits how I feel about my digital work a little,  because 
 when I started it all seemed way beyond what I could do.
But,  after  a while   I can now  say,  I love creating digital art,
nearly, but not quite  as much as the hands on inky and messy projects .

and the

Watching the clouds


Cloud....
is the new theme for the Three Muses Challenge.

I do sometimes sit and watch the clouds as they pass by over the countryside.

Buttons and Bows


The theme for the

As soon as I read this theme I had this phrase  buzzing around in my head.

 but she still got her buttons and bows..

Bee Happy

This weeks theme at Digital Whispers for the
Bee


This is my  digital page for  this weeks theme.

Clocks


Clocks
Is this weeks theme over at  Take a Word

Look close if you want to and not one of my clocks is  telling the same time.
Perhaps this is good as we all seem to be reliant on time, 
maybe it would help us to accept that,  'now',  is good
 and not wish for more time on our clocks..

I will also be joining the folk at
where Rosie chose the theme of Circles for this month.
There are many circle shapes  on my page this time.

I am also adding a little reminder here that the challenge over at
  Try it on Tuesdays is
Steampunk/Mechanical, this page would fit in there as well.
