Over at Inspiration Avenue we are hosting the blog party of the year!!  The party is celebrating 500 and more fabulous followers by running a three week giveaway and freebie party!! And crowning it off with a week-long creative challenge : On the Wings of Inspiration!

I created this little beauty as a give-away :

The Muse of your Charmed Life

She is a digitally altered image, set in a shadow box on layers of vintage sheet music paper. The shadow box has been painted, crackled, distressed and finally finished off with vintage gold rubbing!

  She wears the jester's crown that says CREATE!  She and her magical dreams are holding your dreams high and inspire you daily to allow your spirit and soul to soar to new creative heights.

On the right hand side are the charms on a delicate golden chain.  At the bottom is your songbird, made from mother of pearl, in her golden cage.  Above her is Cinderella's shoe, giving you access to your own fairy tale; a pink enamelled cup and saucer with tiny little jewels set in the rim :  may you have as many cups of coffee and tea that you may wish for, accompanied with wonderful sisterhood creativity and conversation;  a tiny 'diamond' for true love and a gold agnus dei locket (that can open) to strengthen your spiritual heart.

And in the bottom is the tiniest hand made book with blank pages.  On the cover I have added a tiny golden crown.  In here you can write your wishes and put it in the hands of your loving muse!

The back comes with my catalogue label and number.

If you would like to hang this shrine to your muse in your home, grab the button on the right hand side and find your way to Inspiration Avenue and join the party.  And please share the love with your blogging creative friends!

  1. There are many elements in your shadow box which have a special meaning to me. It's a beautiful and encouraging work of art. Thank you for sharing this, it will be close by, appreciated, and reminding me of those dreams and goals and happy moments' a beautiful inspiration!

  2. How awesome that someone (you) who often reads my blog and leaves such encouragement and warmth, has won my give-away!


Thank you for your comments - I read each and every one! I have taken the word verification off - hope it makes it easier
