Earth's Keeper

Happy Earth Day!

May we all take time today to cherish our home planet, to share in her beauty and abundance and to  find ways in which to help her remain vital and sustaining.  We all can do our part to keep the balance and make efforts to give back from all that we take from our home Mother.

Blessed be!

La Mer

This is my entry for this upcoming week's challenge at Take A Word "The Sea".

Greenwood Garden

"Aine of Knockaine is a Celtic goddess of love and fertility, later known as the Fairy Queen.  Aine is revered among Irish herbalists and healers and is said to be responsible for the body's life force".

"Green" is the theme for the upcoming Take A Word  challenge.  My digital collage is a tribute to the Celtic spirit; it's love of nature, myth and the turning of the wheel. Imagery from Dover books, itKuPiLLi, Christine Rennee and Ztampf at Scrapbookgraphics.

Rites Of Spring

I want to thank the Three Muses for embracing the early signs of Spring as our challenge this week . I have been trying to jump out of the Winter doldrums this year to no avail.  January was a very stressful month for me along with most of February (taxes and all that) and I finally feel the creative bug biting again! I also found a lovely new digital kit from itkupilli for this digital piece along with imagery from Pink Lotty and Rebecca McMeen.

Look for those early signs of Spring and let them lead you to a more colorful place!

Life Canvas

The theme at Take A Word challenge this week is simply "Art" and what it means to you.

Art is color, beauty and  for me a sense of the feminine along with a connection to nature.  Art is different for every one. Some see the darker aspects of life and some see the skewed, surreal forms through art expression. Art is fantasy and the grotesque.
  Art makes you feel; it moves you and inspires you (both good and bad).  As long as it makes you react.... it is art.

This digital piece is made with imagery from art papers (Donna Estabrooks), Dover books and Finecrafted designs.
