Empowered!

Today I'm joining Valerie, this month's host at Art Journal Journey, with her theme of light and darkness.

I give you Empowered, my first AJJ entry this month.

I had all kinds of names I could have given to this one, but decided on Empowered when I saw the word Empowering in a magazine. 

In true collage form,

I created this from various magazine images and one travel brochure.  I thought the background reflected both light and darkness, so used it along with the dress, light bulb, and shoes to reflect the word I found that I felt conveyed Valerie's theme.

Thanks for joining me this afternoon, as I head over to Art Journal Journey.  Also, thanks for your continued support of my art.

This is great. I am glad you put the lady in the forefront of such a beautiful scene. And speaking of the lady, she is a riot. In pure collage form- you did a great job! Hugs-Erika

Great collage response to the challenge. We need some light here on our dark rainy days.

So much to love in this page. The window lights refelcted in the water, the light bulb as a head instead of the usual over a head, and those shoes. Who wouldn't feel empowered wearing those (but I think they would look better in blue (-; )

Haha! What a larf, love it, it's so bright and cheerful and happy, and it's certainly something different. Great shoes.

That is a colorful collage and very imaginative. I do love the photo background, reminds of home in Germany...
