My Great Grandmother, circa 1912 (clicking on the photo will take you to my Flickr for downloading in several sizes)
The Victorian and Edwardian eras embody all that is dear today in cottage style, and the current renaissance of those eras in our pixel and physical arts and crafts reflect the elegant fuss, diminutive and layered details, rich colors (whether sepia, jewel or pastel), and romantic overtones of a past age reimagined.

This is my first digital collage, combining elements from "T" altered art, Shabby Chic Papir Skatter, and Karen's Whimsy. The digital imagery I selected has great personal meaning for me when combined with that of my beloved great grandmother. She was a school teacher, and a great inspiration in my early childhood when I was fortunate enough to have known her for a few all-too-brief years.
