The World of Hitchcock

This is my entry for this week Three Muses Challenge: World of Movies.

As I love movies, doing this was a pleasure. Only problem was choosing: silent movies, movie stars, musicals… Then, it occurs to me to pay homage to one of my favorite directors: Alfred Hitchcock.

Besides the awesome Hitchcock and crow photo, the others are from the following movies: Lifeboat, North by Northwest, Notorious, Psycho, Rear Window, Rebecca, The Birds.

Sad Princess in her Golden Cage

Poor Princess Isobel had everything but freedom...

Hello! This is my entry for this week SoArtful challenge.

Background is a painting by Charles Wild (1781-1835): Carlton House: The Blue Velvet Room, 1816. Cage and crown are Graphic Fairies' and was given by Jeanette for this challenge. Isobel is a Enchanted Doll by Marina Bychkova. There's also a Beth Rimmer paper used as texture.

Sweet Home

Hi, folks. This is my submission to this week Take a Word theme: Home.
I've tried a Victorian approach to this one, imagining a loving family in a beautiful sunny day posing to the photographer.

The gentleman is a Graphics Fairy freebie and I can brag about it! :)

The other figures are Dover samples. The Victorian house is a Tboardman photo and the sky background I've got here. Sorry, I don't know whose creation the frame is.

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes!

Millicent only problem is her obsession for shoes. When she's not thinking about them, she's buying them. Last time I've heard, she had kicked her husband out in order to make room for more shoes...

This week Three Muses Challenge - SHOES - was a pleasure for a shoe lover like me! I hope you enjoy it too.

Millicent is a Edith Head's sketch. All shoes around her and in the corners are Andy Warhol's design.

Men's Dreams

Hi, fellows. This week the word at Take a Word is MEN.

Looking at these four young men photography, I asked myself which dreams they dared to dream sixty maybe more years ago? Did those dreams come true? I can only imagine...

Hi, I've done this to attend this week challenge at Three Muses: Automobile.

The photo was taken from a Kombi by Magnum Photo Agency crew when they were going to Brasília to cover its inauguration in 1960.

The highlighted car is a Chevy Bel Air 1957.

There's a letter in the background which was written by our visionary president at the time: Juscelino Kubitschek. It's a farewell letter written when he was leaving the government.

Time to thank

Hi, fellows. This is my contribution to Soartful challenge: Thankful.

We don't have this holiday in Brazil, so it's the first time I have fun doing something refering to it.

I took a Beth Rimmer background and blended 3 different vintage thanksgiving cards, including the one Jeanette gave us. Simple like that.
