creative inspirations

i was recently inspired by one of the greatest stories ever written and made into a movie; "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen. i love love love the book and have watched the A&E version countless times since i bought it on dvd. but recently i have been dying to watch the newer version with keira knightley. so i made my husband run to blockbuster and rent it. :) anyway, after watching both versions within a couple of days of eachother this is what emerged. two small collages each with a line from the book. the first one being; "he's handsome and wears a blue coat. " which i later found out i got wrong for it really goes; "he's very handsome and wears a blue coat." o-well right? :) anyway the second one is; "for a single man in possesion of a large fortune must be in want of a wife. " oh i just love that line! :) lol, and so there you have it. i used clippings from a 1949 "good housekeeping" magazine my mom gave me for my birthday. it's filled with the most amazing adds for dishwashers and refrideraters! as well as lots of little adds for the best panty-hose, shoes and girdles! absolutly fantastic! there are several things that have given me ideas of whole collages i could create! oh but there is just not enough time in the day to do all the things one would like. well to continue on....this next picture is of a mini matchbox i
altered. it was fun to do and conveniently only took one afternoon mostly while i was waiting for the paint to dry. :)
