Happy Easter, Happy Spring, Happy Garden

At Inspiration Avenue, new members are given a mentor to assist them with navigating the blog.  Kim posted her first weekly challenge and I had the privilege of helping her.  She invited all of us to make an image about Seeds.  My digital collage is meant to be a happy welcome to Easter and spring.  All of the little seeds that have been buried in the soil are emerging to make a glorious array of beautiful plants and flowers.  Birds use these seeds for food, but they also help the flowers reproduce.  If you're still buried in snow and frozen earth, have faith.  The seeds are there, just waiting for the right time to grow.  Happy spring!


  1. Beautiful! Seeds , I love planting them and imagining what they will become and how they will emerge from the dirt into something beautiful and inspirational. Much like our Art. Someone like you inspires me and plants a seed and I never know where it will take me!
    Thank you for all your seeds of inspiration today!

  2. I love that happy little pansy in the bottom corner - I can't wait for pansies! Happy spring!

  3. Oh Lou Anne This piece is so beautiful and symbolic. Your work does not appear to be digital at all, it just pops out of the page at me, it has high contrasts and so very rich in textures. I love how you described the process of your seed imagination into art. The Swan really does look like she is made of wood sitting infront of the picture. Beautiful work hun. Thank you so much for helping me co-host the challenge.

  4. Happy Spring, Lou Anne! Thanks for inviting me to visit your blog and thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your kind comments :) I love your 'welcome Easter & Spring' image! It gives me hope that warm sunshine, singing birds and beautiful blossoms will be here soon...even though we woke up to a blanket of snow this morning :) I am soooo ready for spring!
