Try digital art!
That's what friends kept telling me, so I thought it was time to get stuck in :D
I have all the graphic programmes you could want, but had fits of technophobia everytime I tried to use them.
A couple of days ago my very talented friend June Mac of Dezinaworld
shared some amazing free images (all her images are free of charge), and I found she has been running a weekly Cheeky Challenge
Now you know I'm not shy at jumping headlong and wellied up into a challenge, so being half a year behind, I thought it would be a great chance to work on my digi skills.
Rather than just join in from now, I am going to make a Cheeky Challenge art journal :D
I already have an out of date A5 desk diary to alter...
and the full years challenge prompt courtesy of June,
so today I have made my first 2 pages which I am going to print off and stick in the diary.
Week 01 Rags/poverty/homeless
Week 02 Wildflowers
I have used a mixture(cos that's what digi collage is about) of images from Dezinaworld, Daisy Trail(serif), Itkupili images and my own photos.
I'll try not to bombard you with my new project lol, but I'm sure some will find it refreshingly lighter than my other projects :D
