Well, hi, there, you all! LOL Long time, no post! I know, but, it was time well-spent! I trust all is well with each and every one of you!
A few posts back, I told you about Digital Whisper. DW is a Ning group I have had the distinct pleasure of being a member at for several years now. It is a group designed primarily for the digital artist. We have groups, like Dark Whispers, Whispered Dreamers, Photography, and Walking on Water, a spiritual-based group for example, with weekly to monthly challenges. We have special events, such as Spring Fling, the Holidays and other special times. There are tips, techniques, tutorials and tons of camaraderie and support. You don’t have to do any of the challenges or you can attempt them all. There’s even a nice a gallery for your art. You ought to see some of the art that these talented folks can create!
Wait! You can! As DW is a private group, a membership is required. But, you get to sample things first. When you join, you get your first whole month FREE! After that, if you think we have what you want, the membership is only $15.00 for a year. Being a private group, this gives anyone who is interested a chance to come on over, see what we have to offer, and decide for yourself if this is for you. Neat, huh? So, now, ya’ll can come see for your selves what it is I have been yammering about for the past 4 years! LOL
I really hope you can, at least, check it out. One of the things I am real proud of is that the site owner, Patti, has implemented something new. We have made a kit for the purpose of turning folks on to our art. Ning isn’t free anymore, so, the cost of the kits, and other goodies, is to cover those dues and other fees to operate DW. Patti has set up an Etsy shop for this purpose, Elegant Whispers.
We just wrapped up a kit based on “Oz: the Great and Powerful”, the new Disney movie. It is humongous! We did two kits, in fact. One is designed more for the scrapbooker. The other, is a more compact version of some of the same things. In the ‘Midi-sized kit’, we have added collage sheets and smaller-sized pieces, designed with the collage artist, the art journaler or the ATC lover, in mind. In both, there are digital papers, elements of all kinds, frames, mattes, characters and stamps. There is something for all! Here is one preview:
I got to work on this one! It was definitely a team effort, one we plan to continue. We already have plans for more epic kits on the drawing board, so, keep an eye open!
“Oz” can be purchased right now and downloaded for you to get started creating your digital masterpiece. Check it out!
And, come see us! At any given moment, you can find so many things to become enlightened to or involved in! During the month of May, in honor of Mother’s Day, for example, we have a challenge for mother-daughters to participate in as a couple. Of course, this extends to any female-female relationship – sisters, aunts, etc. What would you and your mom/daughter/sister/aunt, come up with, artistically? You can just do a nice layout or you can get down and dirty! LOL We are also doing a four-part Fairy Tale segment, where four rather obsolete Grimm Brothers fairy tales are read, one at a time. Then, you create from your interpretation. It’s so cool! Kym is our resident idea lady and she has a surplus of ideas – all culminating in some very inspirational and fun projects for you.
Don’t take my word, come see us at Digital Whisper!
Oh, and stay tuned. With work on the Oz kit, I took advantage of the creative time and worked on my own style. I have made some goodies for you that I will post later today or tomorrow.
