Where or where could she be?

My muse is missing again. I cannot find her anywhere. I struggled through my first attempt at Aubergine for the upcoming Somerset challenge. I mean I struuuuugggggllllled. Maybe I am not a purple person. Aubergine is fun to say though. Well, I don't know what I'm going to do with this or what I'm going to try next but here is . . .

Queenie Auberginie

This is a 5 x 7 collage using a face from June's Art Freebies, a partial body from the Library of Congress, legs from my own vintage postcard and boots and skirt scanned from found pictures. The wings are from and the crown is from All of these pieces were reprinted, hand trimmed and hand colored with ink and pastel. The background box is made from a texture from flickr's JoesSistah and some lines I made myself. The cloud was purchased with a commercial license from Jeanette Bollinger.

I gave up on my Aubergine piece. I wasn't feeling it either!!! For having no muse, Queenie is fantastic!! Now wrap her up and get her in the mail, girlfriend, you only have until the 15Aug for her to make her Royal Arrival!!! xoSusan
