Love does not hurt

The theme at Digital Whispers this week is:  Love Does Not Hurt, which is the slogan of a website dedicated to helping people who have been abused.  I shan't be flavour of the month with a lot of people for stating that so much abuse happens in the name of love and religion.  My distaste for organized religion is probably obvious in this picture. 
The ostrich head was found at: Stained glass photos, bonfire photos etc courtesy of my daughter. Clouds by Caryl Park and last week's cloud's photo provided for the peace challenge.

Art on The Dark Side - Theme: Eerie Easter

These digital art challenges are so much fun. What a pity there aren't more hours in a day.  I found a fun challenge over at Art on the Dark side blog.  The hardest part of this challenge was to try to make this adorable dog look nasty lol I don't know who the photo belongs to.  It was sent to me as a digital Easter card last year.  The symbol was from a free kit which I found on Efie's blogsite (link is on websites I like to visit) The bat was from an illustration which I think I found on Fairy Goodmother's website.  I really must get better at remembering where I get my files from.  Slap on the wrist to me for being so forgetful and disorganized.

Digital Whispers Art Challenge- peace theme

So busy decorating but I had to take time out to enter the Digital Whispers challenge this week.  The theme is peace. The text may be hard to read.  I wrote:  There are many mansions of peace in the eyes of our hearts.

This is the photo I used to create the picture. It is from my own collection. The buddah and dove were extracted from vintage images. Unfortunately I cannot recall where I downloaded them. If anyone knows, please let me know and I can then give credits.

This is the photo I used

Here is the other picture.  The poem was written by a friend of mine and the background paper was from an Autumn kit by Lumikscrap.  Link to the blog is on websites I like to visit.
