Bev has chosen the theme of Victorian for this week's challenge at the Three Muses.
Victorian ........ mmmmm .... should I give Queen Victoria a steampunk makeover or may be I should do something with Victorian fashion! Finally, however, I settled on the great Victorian Gothic Novel, and what better one than Wuthering Heights by our very own Yorkshire lass Emily Bronte.
A couple of weeks ago I visited Haworth and the Parsonage where the Bronte sisters lived with their father Patrick and brother Branwell.
Emily, writing under the pseudonym of Ellis Bell, wrote Wuthering Heights from there, and just behind the church where her father Patrick was vicar is Haworth Moor and the scene where in Emily's imagination the drama unfolds between Heathcliff and Cathy. Mmmmmmm ...... one of my very most favourite novels EVER.
On Saturday morning bright and early, the Postman popped yet another decorated envelope through my letter box and this time it was from Marie. Just look at those wonderfully bright Prismacolour enhanced colours that brightened up my day. And look what came inside ... two gorgeous bookmarks .... and see, I can choose which one to use depending on my mood that day! Woohoo.
Look what the Postman popped through my letter box last Saturday morning, a lovely mail art envelope from Bev. Yipee! Don't you just love receiving these little works of art through the mail. I got all excited because not only is the envelope gorgeous but just look what I found inside too. Thanks Bev, I love it. :D
I came across a free newspaper last week called the Positive News. How nice to find a newspaper chock full of positive news ....... I just couldn't resist a browse ...... and my goodness I was rewarded with all kinds of interesting and positive news.
One article in particular caught my eye entitled Give Us More Sunshine! Mmmmm .... there is no doubt we Brits at least have had a paucity of said Sun this Summer so the article had to become my PRINTED WORD for the Three Muses this week.
After clipping and scanning the news article into Photoshop, I persuaded my long suffering grand daughter to pose with scissors so I could 'clip' the headline, then to achieve some softness I added one of my own flower textures.
