Judy's challenge




Never one to turn down an art challenge, Judy has presented me with two this month. The first is her altered book which is similar to her Of Elephants and Dreams anthology on Judy's blog. Now we all know how I LOVE colour, Judy's book was quite a challenge. It's a magnificent piece of art that I was honoured to be a part of, I'll be very sad to see it go to it's next artist tomorrow. I've thoroughly enjoyed this challenge and I hope have been successful. I won't be able to show any of my art in Judy's book until late next year, after it's done the rounds of Australia and US.
The second challenge was a comment she left on my blog in the previous post. Judy said she wanted to see me do a black and white page. Well Judy here it is. But I couldn't resist taking it into photoshop just to let her see what a touch of colour will do.
On another note Beate has nominated me for a Rockin Blogger award. Thanks Beate, you should all pay a visit to her site and see her wonderful textile art. I nominate anyone who wishes to rock.

The b/w page is just as eye-catching as your colour work - always love the complexity and how much there is to see on your pages!!!!
PS thanks for playing along with the 7 facts!

LOVE the black and white version. It looks like you did two seperate pieces ???? Or did you alter the black and white one later? Or.....did you use photoshop to click....B&W?

Will we be seeing "My Life in Black and White " now? :-)

I rather like the black & white. I actually see more of the details without the color. Beautiful either way though!
