Marie has chosen music for the theme at 3 Muses this week. My musicians are from Flickr Collage Images, SuzieQ, altered somewhat. Background is from CreateWings. I forgot to note the origin of the borders (sorry). I know the artists at 3 Muses will be making sweet music this week! Thanks for stopping by, guys!

Sunday Postcard has challenged us to do something in Oriental style. After some failed attempts to do a "zettiental", I came across this lovely Oriental image at Flickr Collage Images (Tanakawho), and combined it with a googled Oriental fabric overlay and a bamboo frame. Thanks, ladies. It was a fun challenge!!

I liked Ann's challenge of hats, wings and things. Here's my interpretation, with the help of Lorie Davison of SBG, and an image from SuzeeQue, the beloved generous member of Flickr Collage Images who lost her battle with cancer last week. Credit to Fidlette for the jester hat. Thank you for visiting my blog!

So beautiful and demure, this young lady seems deep in thought. Thanks so much for letting us feature her in our art this week! Credit to Christine Renee Designs and Lauren Bavin for overlay. Both are layered over my own background. Thanks for looking in!

Kelly and Ann are thinking alike. Three Muses sneak peek last night was Hats and Crowns, Wings and Things, and today Kelly's challenge is Hats and Crowns! Talk about coincidence! There should be enough hats and crowns to go around, though. I've given my wee lassie a chic hat and sent her for a walk in her neighborhood. Credit to Create Wings Designs and Flickr Collage Images. Thanks for stopping by!

I've always been fascinated with stories of treasure maps, buried treasure and sunken ships laden with riches unimagineable. I was fortunate to see some of the loot brought up from the wreckage of The Atocha off the coast of Florida, some of which is in Mel Fischer's museum in Key West. The story of the Spanish galleons that went down off the coast of Florida is sure to attract treasure-seekers for years and years to come. Thank you for indulging me!

Our theme at Mixed Media Monday is to be "Hello Dolly". I decided to honor the wife of our fourth president, Dolley Madison. Dolley's first husband and a son died of yellow fever, and she later married James Madison, who was 17 years her senior. Dolley later also filled the role of hostess for President Thomas Jefferson, who was a widower. She was a strong woman, who left her mark on U.S. history. Hello, Dolley!!!

Theme Thursday asked us to work small this week. I did a pair of thrinchies (3-inchies) It's fun working in the smaller size for a change. The beautiful backgrounds in these pieces are from Playing with Brushes (thank you so much for your generosity). The "ladies" are public domain images. Thanks for stopping by!

"Blackbird singin' in the dead of night...." This phrase came to mind even before I read Marie's sneak peek last week. I found my cottage as a stock photo, used an overlay from Skeletalmess, and the lady is from a John William Waterhouse painting. Great challenge, Marie, and great example you've given us!

It is so much fun to do composite people! Here's my dapper Rabbit O'Hare. Thanks and HAPPY EASTER! Credit for the background to Chrysti's Free Textures, the grid overlay is mine, the eggs are Rian freebies, and the grass is from CreateWings Designs. O'Hare's body is from Flickr Collage Images, and that sweet face was googled.

Butterflies are always a bit of magic to me. Credit for the background is to Rubyblossom, and the butterfly fairy is from Karen's Whimsy. She seemed good company for the beautiful butterfly image we're given by Art Creations this week. Thanks for stopping by!
