Take a Word - Star

Late at night when the city sleeps, I'm told magical things happen in the starlight.  I wouldn't be knowin',  but I'm told fairies dance on the rooftops and in the streets.  Have you seen them?

Three Muses - Spring

It's been such a dreadfully cold and snowy winter, the robins are carrying signs to assure us Spring is coming!  Robins and daffodils are the first harbingers of Spring in my part of the world, so I found some daffodils, a robin and a log and put them all together, and indulged in a bit of creative framing.  Thanks for stopping by!


Background with pan pastels, borders Washi tape, flowers Dove candy wrappers, stems with Prismacolors. Fun challenge!

Take a Word - Irish

Happy St. Paddy's Day to all my Irish family and friends!   The images in this piece are from Flickr Collage Images.  
   May your neighbors respect you
   Troubles neglect you
    The angels protect you
    And heaven accept you!
May your neighbors respect you,
Trouble neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And heaven accept you.

Three Muses - Zetti

I have to admit I find Zetti type art time-consuming and difficult.  I have endless admiration for Teesha Moore's work.  She is the queen of quirk!   Much of what I used here is previous art of my own, with some elements from D. Miller and Tumblefish Studios added.

Oh (sigh), business travel is such a bore, but it's always nice to find a decent hotel.   A bit of help from Finecrafted Designs for this one.  Thanks for stopping by!

Three Muses - Bon Voyage

 A passport, an airline ticket, a postcard, a luggage tag and a photo to remember him by....that should be everything the traveler needs!!  Fun challenge, Ann!

Take a Word - Numbers

  Since the beginning of time, it's the men who make war and the women who wait, counting the days 'til they come home.  Some things never seem to change .....
Thanks to Terri Kahrs for the lovely image freebie!
