The Maiden, the Mother and the Crone

The mother (full moon)

The Crone (waning moon)
Hi, fellows! These are my contribution to Take a Word challenge which theme this week is MOON.  The idea is phases of the moon symbolizing different stages of female life cycle. Thanks for passing by.

Postcard to Cláudia

Hi! This week Take a Word asked for Mail Art and I grabbed the chance to say happy birthday to my dearest friend who lives in the most beautiful city in the world, unfortunately very far from me...

Steampunk Beauty

The Three Muses asked for STEAMPUNK. Always a difficult task for me. Maybe it's my tropical soul...

Well, I find this gal with a very artistic makeup (by Emma Reed) and it seemed to me she would fit perfectly to a steampunk environment.

Prime color of the world

El verde es el color principal del mundo, y que a partir del cual surge su belleza.
Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.
Pedro Calderón de la Barca

This coloring thing is kinda addicting.  When Take a Word asked for Green it seemed a good idea to take an old photo of a beautiful teenager and to transform her into a Green Fairy. Then I found this photo gently shared by Jamie Miller and did that:

Small People

Uma pessoa é uma pessoa, não importa quão pequena seja.

Hello! The Three Muses asked for Children. I found these cuties and couldn't resist. I colored them, then applied texture and filters.

Light of Hope

 Cessa toda alegria de brilhar em minha mente,
Mas deixa oh! deixa a luz da esperança para trás.

The theme in Quotography is Hope. We have to use our own photos. This one I took last year in a small town I was visiting. Quote by Thomas Campbell (1777 - 1844). Texture by Kim Klassen.

Where are the babies?

Our friends in the northern hemisphere are longing for warmer days and Marie - from Take a Word - asked for something WARM to cheer them up. I hope this works out.
