Whenever I see butterflies flittering around in the sunshine, I think they look like they are dancing, so I think of music.

AJV March #4, prompt - bow(s), digital collage, 25 elements
Somehow using this string bow and ribbon bow, I came up with this rather sad, not empty but hollow feeling piece. I remembered this text that I had saved for quite a while waiting for the right place to use it. This was the right place for it.
Triton's Living Rainbow
AJV March #5, prompt - sea urchin, digital collage, 23 elements
I started with the sea urchin and then started planting a living rainbow of a garden. Then I populated it and set it in motion. This one was really fun to do! I love anything with rainbows!
Did you know the Man in the Moon snores?
AJV March #6, prompt - wind, digital collage, 7 elements
It's been really windy at my house lately, too. But so far the sun, clouds, stars and rainbows are staying in the sky!
Under a Full Moon
AJV March #7, prompt - lightning, digital collage, 10 elements
More than a bit Gothic, but it's really fun to make pieces like this. And how else do you use lightning?
AJV Feb #20, prompt - ball of yarn
This is me playing catch-up for last month's prompts! I like to keep the prompt rather subtle in my pieces. Sometimes they blend in colorwise and sometimes they just sort of blend in as something of an afterthought. I know I have to use the prompt, but I usually let the piece built itself once I get started. This piece started with the ball of yarn and the two mice, but it sort of took off from there.
Where even angels fear to tread...
AJV March #8, prompt - spiderweb, digital collage, 21 elements
This one has such a dark, despairing sense to me. Maybe it's the books I read or the movies I see, but my art seems to have a sort of stark theme to it at times.
A Lady's Correspondence
AJV March #9, prompt - invitation, digital collage, 6 elements plus text (Polyvore doesn't count text as an element)
This one is certainly a reflection of the historical romances I love to read. I've been rereading Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series lately and all the best ladies have correspondence to write at convenient times!
