But first, in case you didn't see it on my Facebook page, I wanted to give a shout out to a blog that I discovered after awaking from arm pains around 3 a.m. one morning. If one can't sleep, at least one can dream of Paris while wide awake, n'est-ce pas? And you'll have plenty to dream about when you visit
Travel with Julie.
Julie focuses mostly on France and Italy (she leads tours there) but you'll also find travel info on such diverse places as Prague and Oklahoma City. That's diverse! Recipes, too! She's got personality and advice galore. Treat yourself to some travels with Julie....
As for me, I'm going to be scarce around here for a bit, just waiting for Kissed Again! entries and April contest mail to arrive. I'm beginning an intensive program to get mobility back in my arm: chiropractor once a week, physical therapist twice a week and at-home exercises in the hot tub twice a day!
I'll be around posting snippets on Facebook and adding items to my shops, but I have to cut back on my computer time to focus on my arm and shoulder.
In the meantime, here are more scans for your consideration, critique and use in the April "Love Me TWO!" challenge.
I loved the curves in this musical scan, a song about bon-bons. I figured it would be more than a one-hit wonder, but it seems to have fallen on deaf ears....
This is Mademoiselle Heglon, a famous actress/opera star at the turn of the century. I call her 2 Dobobs. I thought folks would be drawn to her exotic looks....but I think she scared everyone away:)
Is the gypsy trend over? I thought my little gypsy girl would be very loved.
I even cut her out and paired her with authentic Hungarian script.
But, everyone seems to act as if she only predicts trouble:(
I call this scan "White Space." I thought it called out for an artist's touch to fill it up. But she just gets blank stares and folks walk on by. I think she's so lovely in her simplicity and uber graceful lines. Can this scan be saved?!
Butterfly Dreams have never taken flight. Yes, the original version is pretty ugly with the dull, fade-away at the bottom.
But I even offered a version with a pretty peach-pink background. Does my butterfly need to go back into the cocoon -- and stay?
As always, merci BEAUCOUP for all your comments!
I'll get March "Love Me TWO!" entries ready to mail out on Monday.....
