MMM: Something Blue

'imagine the mystery within us'
This is my very first altered vintage image. I got a vintage ABC book of Rhymes and this little girl's head was in there..of course I made her a little fancy with my colored pencils etc....
I'm always admiring Kristin's (Twinkle Twinkle) altered vintage Mother Goose image's and so in doing so she has inspired me to give something vintage new color and life!

What a wonderful surprise to see your comment this morning - it was so kind of you to do that! AND I love your little girl - the lips, the colors and especially the stripes under the eye - it's so cool and hip (do I sound old?) . . .
Thank you for your continued support and friendship! Oh, and yes, I saw the blog and thought that you should know each other . . .
