ARCHITECTURE the Art of using space

Hi... hope your weekend is going well.
Linking today another piece to Art Journal Journey challenge where the theme this month is 'architecture' and there's loads of amazing inspiration to see.

This digitally created piece is incorporating my own Steampunk lady artwork (soft pastels) I've used before and a photo of helter skelter on a local pier. Tried to make it look like the helter skelter was emerging from her hat. The soft coloured patterned background is digital too which I made a couple of years ago. The remainder is clipart/tubes type of thing. All digitally blended together.

Thank you so much for visiting today
Have a great day

    1. I bet you'd love it Donna - its so much fun x

  3. Love how you combine pastels and digital to make your journal page, very well done! Great to see a helter skelter, too, haven't seen one of them for ages! Have a lovely day, and thanks for joining us at Art Journal Journey again, hugs, Valerie

  4. What a super idea to add a helter skelter to her hat and all goes so lovely together! A fantastic digi collage with personal art used...This is what I like so much ---super!
    Thank you very much for another fantastic piece linked to Art Journal Journey!

  5. This is really terrific and so unusual. The colourful helter-skelter (coming from her hat!) makes such a contrast to the old buildings on the right and having your pastel lady in front is ingenious. It all works so very well. Wonderful blending too.

  6. This is an awesome digital page, I love the hat, everywhere you look there is something interesting to see.

  7. Hello Gill,
    it's faszinating what you create with your paintings and photoes digitally!! Thinking of a helter skelter (I've never heard or read the word before) by her hat is great fun and the real helter skelter with this lovely girl in blue looks more than great! Who is this little girl without fear? I love how you put everything together, the steps and windows and arches (?)..... And the big balloon at the corner.

  8. It's a fantastic collage for architecture, a great combination of elements! Ulrike
