And There's More.....

Here are two digital collages I created from a photo of a delightful shop in Belper, Derbyshire. I asked permission to show them because the original is of course protected under copyright but it can be seen on the front of their new website Lavender Grey. I recommend a visit if you're ever in the area.......

As everyone knows, we've had a spell of wonderful weather recently in England......and this is where I've spent a lot of my time. Well, you have to make the most of it whilst its here!

This is one of my favourite flowers......

......digitally altered by me.
Another new blogging friend of mine....the lovely Emma at A Little Bit of Everything is doing a very special postcard swap for her 50th birthday. She wants to find 50 people to swap with (I hope she has plenty of stamps ready!)
Here's the gorgeous collage she sent me.....now I must get mine completed (you'll get it next week, I promise Emma!)
If you'd like to join in I'm sure she'd love to hear from you - go and visit her blog.

And finally...... I decided to treat myself to something from the talented Claire Barone's Etsy shop (she has some wonderful things for sale) and chose this delightful piece called 'Searching'. I love it.

Go and see her beautiful blog header....

Love what you did with the photos of Lavender Grey, what a beautiful little shop, and your back garden looks lovely Linda, wish I could just drop by for a nice cold drink, it is really hot here too at the moment.

That is a wonderful fabric art postcard, what a great idea to celebrate her 50th, wish I had thought of something like that :)

Also loving this digital art print, I will have to go check out her blog now.

Hello, I hopped on over from Maggi's blog and am glad I did. What a delightful blog you have, such lovely art, the whole thing is very nicely done from your personal art to the background. Love your little lotus flower books.

I just love the bicycle pieces. I'm going to try to locate Lavender Grey at the weekend. Your garden looks beautiful - just as good as in real life. Thanks for the link to Emma by the way. I heard from her on Tuesday.

Hi, Linda! Gorgeous digital collages! Have you tried Golden digital grounds? You can use them to print out your digital collage onto paper (or another surface) coated with the digital ground. Once the ink is dry, you can then incorporate the piece into another work of art. :-)

Love from your friend ♥RINI♥
