Astrological Shoes

I know I said I would make a proper themed collage but I'd already started this one so decided to finish it with some astrological signs and mysterious astro alphabet!

The Archer(s)


The 9th sign of the Zodiac, a fire sign ruled by Jupiter, tending to be good-natured, honest, intelligent and adventurous (the good stuff), and also blunt, arrogant, and capable of high levels of anger when they feel lied to or deceived (the bad stuff) don't cross me, people!

Guess what's for dinner?

The year of the tiger

One of my latest:

At Home With Pisces and Aquarius

I have been wanting to use that lamp in a collage for a long time.  The Aquarian is from an address book that featured famous paintings of women and that is Girl with Shell by William Stephen Coleman.  I believe it hangs in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.  I added the pillow and basket box and the fishy swimming in front of the lampshade is appropriately named a "Scissortail".  Background with goldfish is plate from a vintage book.  Also, I changed the title of my collage as my husband is a Pisces and I am an Aquarian.

THEME: What sign are you?

Astrological that is!  Make a collage based on your sign.  OH...I should mention you can either use the Signs of the Zodiac or Chinese Astrology.

Hmmmmm...I see some water in my future creation!  ; )

Have FUN.

Oh to Live on Ice Cream Mountain!

Borrowed a line from Neil Young's song "Sugar Mountain" with a bit of a change.  Initially was going to call it "Ain't No Ice Cream Mountain High Enough" (a play on the Diana Ross song) because I just returned from a visit to The Motown Museum in Detroit, Michigan.  Oh my goodness...what a thrill it was to be in STUDIO A -- where ALL the MAGIC was CREATED and actually get a chance to sing with our tour group in the studio (The Temptations song "My Girl").  Our guide told us in 2011 when Sir Paul McCartney visited and sat down to play the vintage Steinway grand in Studio A and it was so out of tune he had it shipped to New York where it was reconditioned and tuned and returned to the museum!  What a guy!!

Speedo Team Ascends Volcano

Space Collager

Still on a side theme of sci-fi but managed to squeeze a volcano and some craters in - I guess they will have to do for mountains!

Theme of the week: Mountains

Today is the last theme by me for this time.
Inspired by Angie´s collage "Photo Shoot on Cadillac Mountain" and Lynn´s last infographic "Comparative View of the Heights of the Principal Noses in the World" I have chosen "MOUNTAINS" for this week. What ever comes up in your mind ....
Grab your scissors and have fun!

More Useless Data...

Comparative View of the Heights of the Principal Noses in the World


Not sure if my both collages really fit to the difficult theme I have chosen this week .....
I promise: next week it will become a more comfortable theme again!
