Art Creations

I'm away from home for a month, visiting my BUSY grandboys, and away from all my paper and stamping supplies, so I've decided to try some of my favourite challenges digitally.


The new Art Creations challenge is to use this beautiful image. I matched it digitally with a background previously created by Will and posted at Art Creations last month.The other digital elements were designed by Irene Alexeeva. The font is Waterbrush by Rob Leutschke. She's so wistful in this image. I've decided it's because she and her love, who live in Ireland, have to part. If you listen to this beautiful song by our own Nova Scotia's Rankin Family, called "Fare Thee Well Love," you'll hear why...just click on the pink title and turn on your volume. For those unfamiliar with their music, this song was recorded by a group of five siblings (three sisters and two brothers) in 1992: John, Jimmy, Raylene, Cookie, and Heather. They live in Cape Breton Nova Scotia, sing and record Celtic music together, in honour of their heritage. Several years ago, John was killed in a winter traffic accident in the highlands of Cape Breton, while he was driving his son to a hockey game. The other four siblings have since reunited musically. Fare Thee Well Love is one of their most beloved songs. If you take the time to listen to it, you'll hear why.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.

I'm impressed by your digital work. I'm still learning so mine usually does not look finished until I embellish using tactile elements but this is a lovely completion!

So clever! I love the romance of your card. Beautiful song too. Actually I clicked on the song before I read what you had written and thought straight away that they were Irish.

I hope you are having a fantastic time with the family!
