Turquoise Thoughts

My friend, Helga Strauss, (who has marvelous images, art bits & fabulous supplies at ARTchix Studio), has recently returned from a vacation along the shores of my favorite Bahamas paradise where crystal clear turquoise waters surround and inspire. She hosts a weekly creative challenge and asked everyone to make a piece of art with turquoise as the main color. Here are my ATC (Artist Trading Card) size collages (shown here front and back) to add to this beautiful tide of turquoise!

Here’s a link to Helga’s blog if you want to follow her weekly art adventures:

      Helga, thank YOU for encouraging me to play more with my splendid ARTchix goodies (and wanting to be able to link to your site for the Turquoise Challenge nudged me to get this blog idea out of draft form and finally onto the web – so thank you for that movement forward too!) Loved getting to see the picture of your cat and am just having fun and in awe of the amazing talent found in the ARTchix group … high fives for all you do to stir the creative fires!
