The Artist's Playroom Challenge-Rainbow

Jenn challenged us to make an image with rainbow colors.  I decided to construct a rainbow with seven layers for each color.  Once I made the design, I wanted to spread it out in an arch, like a rainbow.  Little did I know that Photoshop Elements doesn't have an easy way to draw a curved line.  I researched it and did a lot of trial and error.  When I finished, I felt like I hadn't created any great masterpiece.  I had, however, given myself some fun and a challenge.  Overall, the fun won out.  I guess my inner child got to play on the computer.  Thank you Jenn, for encouraging fun and experimentation in art.

  6. Very beautiful. I also wish I knew how to do a curve or circle cut-out in Adobe shop Elements. I wanted to crop out around a recent circle Zentangle design I did. I know this is mixed media collage? i can't figure out what all the little flower shapes are?? did you have to cut out all the different little angels? Amazing!!
