Today's post Part One

This wonderful digital art image is called Mermaid's Revenge and 
is a brand new one by Teri and only arrived in the 

shop this morning.  

This is going to be one of my favourites. No one draws 
skulls or mermaids quite like 
Teri and this one is stunning. 
Look at the attitude and don't you love her 
black pearls? Gorgeous!
A real joy to work with and here she is coloured with
promarker pens with little highlights from
Sakura gel pens. 

I would like to enter this mermaid into these challenges:

 Simon Says Stamp Challenge
Glimmer and Sparkle

 I have used star dust on the bubbles and scales,  shiny gold on hair, jewellery, dagger and 
have given some skulls gold teeth.I have 
put shine on the pearls too. xx

Creative Craft Challenges2
 Fun with Fantasy 

 DCC and Friends Challenges

Challenge #3 Character Crazy


 This second image is a sentiment also by 

 which I coloured a bit to resemble  .... 
well what do you think? he he he ...

 Then finally I added some black lace to

for a night time look.

I have another post to do today so feel free 
to come back later this evening for another look! 

Love and Peace,
Vee xx


Today's post Part Two

This next part of my post is for the challenge at:

Quoth The Raven,Nevermore


And now - a further Quest.......  what say thee to the notion of discourse with a creature from eons gone by ? How wouldst thou address such, and what knowledge would he impart to thee. ? Herewith lies a tale of one such encounter - a strange tale indeed - and doth not thy mind race at the thought ?? The tale is entitled "SOME WORDS WITH A MUMMY" .


This is a sparkling little satire by Poe, laughing as he 

takes pot shots of Bostonian society and men 

of letters.

He engineers a debate between ancient  and 

modern civilisation and we are left in no doubt

who is the victor in Poe's opinion.

I have made what might have formed part of 

a journal by a participant in the tale.







see previous description re colours etc.
