Take a Word - Mona Lisa Revisited

Mona Lisa will find herself in all sorts of new surroundings this week at Take a Word.  I've used a background of blended pieces of renaissance floral paintings, and a found violin....just in case Mona has an urge to be serenaded.  I hope someone has a bow!  Thanks for your visit.

CO - Transportation

Transportation is the challenge at Collage Obsession this week.  Image credit to Creative Commons; map overlay googled.  Slight tinting.   This lady is a bit before my time, but I could have posed in similar fashion with my first car -- a beautiful, spanking new, pristine white 1957 Ford.     Ah, those were the days.......

Three Muses - White Space

I'm becoming a fan of white space art. Maybe it's because I'm a child of the prairie and grew up in the wide open spaces!!  I traveled a good deal when I worked to a number of our large cities.  I always gave a sigh of relief when I reached the edge of the city and hit the open road.  I live in a large city, but my homes have always been on the very outskirts, so that a short drive takes me to vistas of small farms and fields of grain.  This skyline is a photo from my cousin (much tweaked, cropped and filtered), but I don't know what city it is.  Anyone recognize it?   At any rate, I had a grand time putting this together, and I hope you all have enjoyed your white space journey as well.  Thanks for stopping by.
