Arty Girlz Challenge ~ Blog Inspiration



An interesting challenge this week at Arty Girlz was to use inspiration from a blog to create a piece of art. I turned to Sweet Repeats, the blog of my good friend Jodi Ohl. Every time I visit Jodi's blog I am struck by the joyous color. The bright blues, greens and yellows call out to me and I have answered with the above collage, entitled "Winter Magic."

You would be well served to visit Jodi's blog where there is always a host of beautiful art to enjoy.

The above 6 x 6 collage is available in my Etsy shop.

It is beautiful Nancy, and such great words for our talented friend Jodi! I see a splash of color...but I also see your style which I can pick out of a line up! Good for you for trying something new. And kudos to Jodi for her inspiration. And BTW, great blog posts. She could be a writer too.

Love this one, we don't get cold enough weather here in Ireland for frozen lakes so it's always great excitement when they set up the ice rink for Christmas.I think I'll be wearing more than this girly though:)
