This is my entry for the Three Muses challenge this week "Steampunkerie". Always a curious theme full of odd mechanical imagery mixed with vintage/oldworld influence, designed to spark the imagination. Credits for this collage go to Sherrie JD & Rosey Posey at Scrapbookgraphics, and Finecrafted Designs & Holliewood at Deviantartscraps.

April's Bloom

This is my entry for this week's theme at Take a Word challenge "Bloom". This piece just grew and grew with multiple layers of a little steampunk (Rosey Posey) , vintage imagery (Dover) and background from Lorie Davison at deviant art scraps.

Fair Maiden Postcard

I had some fun with one of my favorite Fair Maiden images from Dover books -(Raphael's Lady with a Unicorn) for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge this week. Back ground from scrapbookgraphics, various artist papers, postal stamps and imagery from Rosey Posey.

Emerald Star

"Green" is the inspiration for this week's Take A Word challenge. The hills around my home are indeed turning green after tons of rain this winter and it is a welcome sight. Signs of Spring always bring enchantment and faery lore to the surface for me and this collage represents the magical elements in the deep woods and ponds at this time of year.

Natural History

This is my entry for the Take a Word challenge this week where the theme is "Bird Life". I love pouring through vintage botanical and bird illustrations and decided to create my own collaged "color plate" to represent bird life and habit . Most bird books now are beautifully photographed but I really enjoy vintage Audubon and in this case M. Catesby (1679-1749) paintings with their beautiful stylized detail and color. Other imagery credits for this piece go to , scrapbookgraphics, artist papers from K & Company, vintage stamps and zoological text.
