Quite A Pear!


The images for this mixed media collage came from the Crowabout Challenge.  I couldn't resist doing something with this lion.  I've played with the placements of the images digitally.  Then I embellished it with paint, colored pencil, ink, and a couple of metal pretties.  The image is then adhered to a vintage book cover.   The finished piece measures 5.5" x 8.5"  and is titled Quite a Pear!

On another note, I found this quote the other day in my stash.  I have no idea to whom to attribute it.  But of course, I love it!   "Veterinary research has learned that a cat's brain structure is similar to a human's and that cats make decisions by processing data from the five senses."

Looks great....I couldn't get inspired with the recent Crowabout challenge, so I am hoping my muse kicks in for the next one. Love what you did here :)

Elizabeth, I've been doing my blog land catch up tonight. I wanna check out that Collage Play with Crowabout. Sounds very interesting! And I love your new look -- with that regal collage centered around Lina Cavellira (sp?) at the right. Tres belle:)

That cat collage is so pretty! I agree about the intelligence of cats, too...

I love the cat collage and quote! I think cats are very smart indeed. Still hope my Joey comes to his senses and returns home.He has been missing for almost 200 days now :( Your beautiful OWOH ATC came by the way and I wanted to send you another huge thank you!
