Imagination Station | LMAC FreeStyle No. 16


My current FreeStyle Collage project is Number 16 in the series. For my theme, I wanted to portray a glacier setting where aliens and other animals gather to confer on art styles, new techniques, and various art programs that allow their imagination to soar. Each introduced the other to their way of presenting various art projects. Collaboration is key they determined and agreed to meet again at a future date.


In preparing my theme, I located an unusual free sourced image that resembled an alien tree or some other type structure on another planet with limbs that branched out in different directions.


Next, I utilized a previous LMAC contest image for Round 155. Since my scene included water, I visualized the image as a perfect match with its dark blue color. The image paired perfectly with other items in my scene:



Below are the additional images I included to complete my theme. Contributions by members to the LMAC LIL database continue to enhance my collages themes. I appreciate the effort they take in making them available to all members.

To finalize my collage, I uploaded all into Canva to take advantage of my Annual Pro Membership Subscription.:
