ACF Challenge 64 Little Boy

This week the hosts at Art Creations Friday provided this beautiful boy for our pleasure. He is just so cute, all he really needs is a nice frame. But where's the fun in that. I chose to gather a collection of little boy "stuff" around him, cherished things that might have been in his pockets.
The stuff came from Gooogle, the ribbon and clipping mask from Cottage Arts--a site with great scrapbooking kits and ideas, tutorials and free stuff too. Go visit them sometime. The text and postage stamps texture is brom Boccacino at T4L and the background paper and the button from Songbird Avenue, a place I found that produces one digital kit every month, created by volunteer artists, and on sale only for a limited time. Each month, the proceeds are designated to a different charity. The kit I bought is called Port Au Prince, and the proceeds went to emergency relief for Haiti.
Wow, that was a lot of words! There's been a discussion recently at Digital Whisper about giving credit for the elements we use in our work. I am in favor of that--my work woud be greatly diminished if I didn't have the wonderful materials created by others to use as my paints and brushes.
Hope you like my little guy.
Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Excellent all the interesting embellishments. Terrific artwork. Hugs, Gayle.

  2. Hi Linda, your collage is so beautiful. The image is such a joyful one to work with.
    Regarding giving credits - I learned digital art by taking part in challenges on scrapbooking websites where participants are left in no doubt about showing the credits so it has become second nature to me. I think it is a good and fair way to go. Thanks for mentioning it!!
    I love your blog.

  3. oooh! I get to be the first to comment on this--I love it! You really showcased this lovely picture with so many perfect elements--great art work!

  4. What a delightful collection of little boy things in your collage for this week's image. Good work!

  5. beautiful with all the added boys stuff and love the mask you used.

    totally agree with giving credits where they are due . Where would we be without all these wonderful designers.

    The Port au Prince one is a great kit and good value for money

  6. Beautifully done!
