Three Generations

On this Veterans Day, I wanted to honor all the soldiers who have served, and are serving now in the military. I am very proud to stand between my Father and Son as former members of the military.
We served respectively in World War II, Vietnam War Era, and Desert Storm. I only wish we had better photos.

A Book, a Nest, and Little Girls

Had some collage elements I wanted to play with, and some copyright free images. Felt like doing a little coloring on the girls.

And while I had all these in my Photoshop Elements, thought it would be fun to move things around and combine. This is one result.

Colorizing Images

Here are a few more JPGs from the Paperwhimsy shoppe. I am playing with colorizing. Once I have a basic image colored, I can just change the colors for a different look.

Second Paperwhimsy Challenge

This is the second Paperwhimsy challenge using one of the new JPGs offered in the Papewhimsy shoppe. This time I did the entire collage using Photoshop Elements.

Playing with Photoshop Elements

Here's a small collage I created using Photoshop Elements and one of the new JPGs offered over at Paperwhimsy.

First Paperwhimsy Door challenge

After taking a short break, I am slowing getting back to the art table. I hope to have some new things to post soon, and will also be venturing into the digital world.
This is a collage made for the first door challenge posted on the Paperwhimsy blog.
