I'm indulging in Smoke and Mirrors, Double Meanings, Hidden Messages, etc., on my blog right now...
On this humid morning, I went out to take pictures of the moon. This sparkle effect is an artificial creation from the digital camera. The orbs look like those attributed to ghostly energy, but they are caused by backscatter, or near-camera reflection, which is common with digital cameras at night.
This week’s Three Muses challenge was “Envelope Art.” I measured a business envelope (size 10) and used that exact size in GIMP for a template, but I had problems printing it onto an envelope (the image got cut off on the top and left, and didn’t extend all the way to the bottom and right edges). The woman image is from a Soartful challenge.
This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was “Feeling Blue.” I made one postcard depicting sadness, and another showing a predominantly blue book cover. I used several images and digital stamps for both of these.
This week’s Three Muses challenge was “Back To Nature.” I don’t normally do this, but I couldn’t decide which color scheme I liked better, so I’m posting both. I like the bold contrast of the green, but I also like the sky blue. They have two different “looks” to me, but I like both. I’m interested in hearing what other people think.
This week’s 4x4 Friday challenge was “Fly Away Summer,” signifying the end of summer. I used digital stamps for this. (I modified the sun stamp.) The words are from Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18. Unfortunately I missed last week’s Spooky Bingo deadline (I thought I could post it under the wire, since Kersten is on Alaska time, but no such luck).
This week’s 4x4 Friday challenge was “Spooky Bingo.” Unfortunately I was too late, and missed the challenge deadline.
This week’s Theme Thursday challenge was “Square Art” where we were to use 1x1, 2x2, 3x3 or 4x4 art. I’m using this for that challenge also, but I hope to have time to make another entry for Theme Thursday, maybe one of each size.
