Norma Jean

Has the fragile Norma Jean envisioned she would become Marilyn Monroe, one of the most powerful and enduring myths of cinema? I guess not.

I did this collage to 52 Starlets Art Challenge which theme this week is eternal Marilyn.

Dr Macro provided Marilyn Monroe photos; background by Beth Rimmer; Frame by me.

Meanwhile, in Fairyland

I love old fairytales books' illustration. As a child I was drawn to that world of magic and wonder through those pictures.I made this digital collage for this week theme in Take a Word: WINGS. Please enlarge to see the details.

Illustrations: the Moon Maiden and The Three Beggars by Warwick Goble; the King & Queen of Fairies and their court by unknown. Some trees and bushes were googled; texture by Buzzilo Stock (deviantArt).

Blue marine

Aaaah! Il dolce far niente...

Hi. This is my entry for this week Three Muses Challenge: BLUE. For me this color evokes beaches, clear sky, lazy vacations. So here it is my vintage Summer.

This is a special challenge, as lovely three muses are "turning two". Let's celebrate with those wonderful creative ladies.

All elements , which I altered, including background, are Beth Rimmer's. Texture by Glenda Ketcham.

Steampunk Clara

How long does she need to seduce the guard?

Poor Steampunk Clara! She was kidnapped by an evil genius. How long does she need to seduce her guard and escape from that goddamn fortress? Not much, I guess.

Hi, fellows! This is my contribution to the brand new blog 52 Starlet Art Challenge. This week the movie star is CLARA BOW.

I found the photo of Clara Bow in the blog A Mythical Monkey, then I put some color in it. Steampunk elements by Finecrafted Designs.

Never too late to change

After an eternity modeling to renaissance painters, Mona found out that she could make much more money as a top model and instantaneous celebrity. She is very happy with her new wardrobe and even happier for having her eyebrows back. On the other hand, The Louvre is facing a debacle of its profits since La Gioconda vanished from Da Vinci’s most famous painting.

Blue (striped) mood

Hi! Three Muses asked for stripes and I couldn't decide where I was going to, so I ended up in this blue whatever...

I found the girls, the velvet cats and the background, which is a web wallpaper, googling.
