  Yes! I can see the faeries sitting outside too.

The jealous moon


The monthly color challenge at VPI this month is Periwinkle, it's such a pretty color and flower.... Of course the moon would be jealous.... The challenge is to make an 4 by 6 inch arch and use a window somewhere on it ... The digital piece came first and I thought it would make a very pretty arch...

making a quick escape

 When I start a digital piece I ofter think about the story behind the image.




well it's a hot summer day , the warm breezes are coming into the classroom.. the twins are staring out of the window at the sunny meadow, birds are singing , bees are buzzing...the stream is bubbling........  the school work is boring


 and the teacher has fallen asleep in his chair.......childhood is calling......... time for a quick escape


the children are from the redheaded stepchildren kit from hidden vintage studios... the window and background, books etc  Lori Davidson, the vase/ rose from Brimm

take a word...... TIME

To everything there is a season,
a time for every purpose under the sun.
A time to be born and a time to die;
a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
a time to kill and a time to heal ...
a time to weep and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn and a time to dance ...
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to lose and a time to seek;
a time to rend and a time to sew;
a time to keep silent and a time to speak;
a time to love and a time to hate;
a time for war and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

I know you are probability wondering why  I'm using such a morbid poem. I have never seen this as morbid but a guide to my life ... there is a time for everything and there is a story.

When I was about ten. I had to pick a poem to read out to the class.. I didn't want to do this, I was painfully shy and hated speaking to a crowd.   My grandad had a old book of poems. I was going to use John Wordsworth's daffodils but at the last minute changed my mind and did this instead... 


It took a lot of courage to stand before that class and recite, I was so proud I didn't stumble or mess up the words and now still forty odd years years later.......  Do you know what I remember about that day....  not that I did so well but That my teacher instead of praising me...  she asked "Why had I picked such an morbid theme"

A wonderful time for her to pull my out of my shell and praise me for reciting a long and hard poem and she felt the need to question it ..... Did  I even raise my hand to do it again. 


I think you know the answer

Almost Alice

 I have been dying to show you all the art I've been making with the new mini Kit "Almost Alice" from Hidden Vintage studios... they added it to Deviant scrap today.I made an Altered tin for the Creative team. But then
 I couldn't stop so I made A digital piece Titled  "Down the rabbit hole'   
 Some ATC for a up and coming Alice in wonderland swap at Paper Traders

 And some Glue book pages for a swap at Blissfull ART swaps



not only does the kit come with the colored images but also in Sepia, and as you can see it is very versatile, as it works for Alice in Wonderland  and these spring themed pages.
