Hello Collage Makers! Welcome! + edit


I am so thrilled to welcome you back from the long summer vacation! We can slowly start our new season in Collage Obsession. But before we get going, there are a couple of things...

First I´d like to know, what would be the best challenge day for you? I will put a poll on the sidebar, so you can vote your choice. The day with the most votes will be our new challenge day. Notice, that we use the GTM (Greenwich Mean Time) on our blog, and the new challenges will be posted at the midnight GTM.

You can leave a comment on this post, if you have suggestions for the topics of the challenges, or any other ideas or questions.

And last but not least I want to test our new link tool - so if you like, you can post a link to your own favorite collage on your blog or website! Or to any other collage or post you wanna point out!  This could be also a great way to boost some new traffic!

Alphabet Challenge--A is for _________

Sometimes, when I am looking for inspiration and am stumped, I go back to the old children's word game, "A my name is Alice...

This week's challenge is to include something in your Art that begins with the letter A.  I can be the focal point, or just one element among many, like ANGEL or ANIMAL or APPLE or ALBATROSS.
 It could be the name of a color, like AQUAMARINE or ALIZARIN crimson or ALICE blue.
It could be an action like ASLEEP or ANGRY.

I hope you have fun with this one, and once again, techno-challenged as I am, please just leave a comment with a link to your art piece.
