Spot


I'm once again joining Rike at Rike's Art who is this month's host at Art Journal Journey with her theme Animals A to Z.

Something a bit different today.

I am going psychedelic.

Spot is a psychedelic dog

who loves his name.


This page was created in my Challenges altered book.   Everything came from a very old flyer (from 2002) for the annual fund raiser for the Humane Society.   I used letters and the peace sign, as well as the darling dog for this entry.  Every piece came from the flyer and I pieced it together in collage form.

Thank you so much for joining me today and thank you for your visit.  I also hope to see you at Art Journal Journey, too.

Great collage with strong lines and colours! To answer your query, no that is not my craft room where I created Dixie the Diva. It is the workshop of the artist who ran the session, and I am extremely jealous of it too!

This is a fabulous collage page Elizabeth. Spot looks real cute and suits his name so well.
Have a happy Sunday.

Fun page. I love the minimalist letters and the vertical arrangement of them. Hope your day is spot on.

That is different and I like it. Spot is one hip dog. I don't think hip is quite the word anymore, but I will use it because this page reminds me of being a kid back in the 1960's. Hope it's been a great weekend. We just got another 10 inches and by Wednesday it is supposed to be 70 degrees. EEKS! What weather. Hugs-Erika

I like your outstanding pages very well! You always have such great ideas for very creative pages - and so here comes Spot, the psychedelic dog! Spot looks a little bit dangerous, but the piece sign in his eye tells us we should not be frightened :) - as long as he has enough to eat in his pot!
Thank you for such a clever journalpage to my theme at Art Journal Journey! I love it! Rike xx

Elizabeth, this makes me smile so big and happy! I love your use of color and the overall "look" of "Spot" as a dog! Very fun and clever. Love the peace sign! We could all use a little more of that these days.

I'll be seeing a lot of dogs this year, I'm sure, since it's the animal for this Chinese New Year. I like your peace sign best ;)

This is a great idea, to take a flyer and reassemble it. Your collage looks like an op-art poster. You are so good at making your collages.
Did Bleubeard and Squiggles not object to you making a Dog artwork?
Did Bleubeard refuse to help this time?

Love it. Yay for fundraisers for animals.
Hope your Sunday is filled with sparkle and sunshine, dear Elizabeth.

Absolutely wonderful collage, Elizabeth! I love the dog/Spot theme and the fact that you created it in your Challenges altered book. It is so cool that it came from a flyer from the Humane Society, too! Thanks so much for sharing your talents with all of us. Have a great week! Hugs, Sharon
