I am slower than molasses

. . . . but I did get something made today. Can you believe it took me all day? The muses are not wanting to wake up. I did play around with the background a bit in Gimp, though, so that took a hunk of time.

5 x 7 collage using a vintage black and white image from the public domain that was reprinted in two pieces and hand colored. Wings are from greatmusings.com and were also hand-colored, shoes are from a scanned magazine picture, the hat was made from scraps and hand colored, and the red label is from flickr's wackystuff. The background was made in Gimp using a texture from flickr's JoesSistah and layered with stars I made and a door from the public domain.


The only other thing I got done was re-opening my Etsy. That's it! Not much! Happy Monday!
