"The creative person is both more primitive and more cultivated, more destructive, a lot madder and a lot saner, than the average person." F.Barron

Theme Thursday is Beauty. I went a little unconventional, I think. With Memorial Day coming up, my mind is on the men and women who have served our country. So to all our Veterans, Thank You! You are my definition of beauty.

The Star Spangled Banner sheet music I picked up some time ago on a public domain site. The Uncle Sam and Statue of Liberty images are from Suzee Que. The Arlington and Iwo jima images are my own photos from a trip to DC.

Cock Robin PNG fun

The Graphics Fairy shared some info on digi stamps yesterday. After reading her follower's responses I decided to try creating a brush in photoshop. I have used brushes created by other people, but never made my own. I used an image from the vintage storybook "Who Killed Cock Robin?". I have shared some images from this book in the past. I used Illustrator to get a good outline of the image, then used Photoshop to remove the white and save the image as a PNG and created my brush. Here is the PNG if any of you are interested in using it:

If you don't know the story of Cock Robin, it is about his wedding to Jenny Wren. This is Robin Redbreast in his wedding finery. I think he is adorable. If you do find a use for him, I would love to see where he ends up.

A bird in the hand...

...is worth 2 in the (rose) bush. The theme at Theme Thursday is hands. Here is my interpretation:
The beautiful dove card and the bird (in the hand) are images from The Graphics Fairy and the hand is from my own postcard collection.

A quote from Rabindranath Tagore

It is time for Theme Thursday. Today's theme: butterflies or butterfly wings. I went online searching for inspiration and came across a quote by Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941). Never heard of him? Me neither. So more online searching, and I found out he was a Bengali poet, playwright, novelist, and musician. He was the first non-European to win a Nobel Prize for Literature. His words "The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough" were so perfect for today's challenge.
