*** Lost in the Secret Garden ***

Of Inspirations and creativity

My daughter's fav of all the graphics I have created.

So sorry for forgetting about "Saturday Night FairyTale" but I have been consumed in creating art in digital graphics. I hope to resume in a few weeks for at the moment I am trying hard to establish myself in this medium and will be selling most of my banners on Etsy and maybe some other shops but not so sure yet; checking other areas as well as the internet.These that I have posted are for sale or will be soon.
I will definitely be continuing the FairyTales for without them inspiration fails me. I have consequently been taking a different road in the past few weeks in getting out for fresh air and exercise with my furry luv Grace, taking photos and learning my camera, finding ideas for writing and creating art in all of the areas I adore working in. I will no doubt share with you my ventures and enlighten on some not so original but some spin off ideas you may want to try your hand at and at other times I may just have a novel idea. Your creativity through art, no matter what kind is so good for ones soul. So do come in for a quiet moment or two and enjoy the music and read from time to time; you may discover something tugging at your heart. This week has been entirely spent on designing with
Graphics!!!’m hooked line and sinker and I will aim for perfection. Hopefully I won’t tire…I’m a true Piscean !

This one is for the little kids in us all...Catching Butterflies, fireflies, dragonflies,Damselflies and who knows what else.My daughter has come home with little spotted salamenders and then set them free. Wonderful memories of life spent in the wilderness of nature.

Roses are a passion and so are fairies as you can see. Whimsical and magical, a world of dream.

Birds and their beautiful voices...always drawn to them.They are the best homemakers I know!

Until then, be inspired and create!
Hugs Annabelle

Hi dear Annabelle...wow, I gasped when I saw Starry...how beautiful. I will look so forward to your next Tale when you are ready along with your creations. I called my Hubby to look at your site and went back a bit...he especially liked it that you are a Pisces...just like him!!! Your blue background is stunning...is that one of your own?
I am nearly finished Breaking Dawn...absolutely enthralled with it and the magic it brings!!! Now I have a lady in Ireland reading the set...and I thank you for introducing me to the Twilight series. My daughter is hooked too and has joined a fan club!!! Happy creating Annabelle...Hugs to you, Dzintra

*** Magic in the Woods ***

Starry, originally uploaded by Zsaj.

"For in an instance I did think I’d seen a zillion stars ablaze" When I had discovered the magical grove of fossilized crystals I thought I had seen stars. This is what it looked like only on the ground amongst the moss. Thanks to Zsaj for helping me interpret the scene I had discovered a few summers past.

Needed a break from woodburning and painting so I tried this lovely little toy{ Polyvore Digital Workshop } and created this collage. This is a great way for creating a virtual one before attempting a real mixed media collage, although this is art in itself. Thanks Cindy from "My Romantic Home "http://www.romantichome.blogspot.com/, for introducing this great little gadget. I think I'm hooked!

* ~ Twilight at Sea ~

Another collage I created inspired by the poem "Twilight at Sea" I used dragonflies instead of birds...I luv them both but I adore how their gossamer wings catch the light. ~Annabelle

Twilight at Sea

The Twilight Hours like birds flew by,
As lightly and as free;
Ten thousand stars were in the sky,
Ten Thousand on the sea;
For every wave with dimpled face,
That leaped upon the air,
Had caught a star in its embrace,
And held it trembling there.
