A Vintage Witch

If you ever watched Practical Magic, you will remember this:

"There is a little witch in every woman."

And if you consider our capacity of changing things and immense creativity, you will understand that most of us know our craft. 
Simon Says wanted to see some Witch-Kraft so here is mine.Tag Along wanted something vintage.Glitter-n-Sparks wanted butterflies and Crafter's Cafe challenged us to use our punches and dies.

George & Me

Wish you were here

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from hell?
Blue skies from pain?
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish
How I wish you were here
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year
Running over the same old ground
What have we found?
The same old fears
Wish you were here

Card for a baby girl

I made this card for The Cheerful Stamp Pad: I am one of the designers there. It is a card for a baby girl. I've used a digital image from the Stitchy Bear's 'baby girl pack': it's the gown and added some others charming elements.The baby's image is from 1930's. I am entering this card in some challenges.

Frida in Brazil

This is my hand drawn Frida. I created the background first. Then I drew her. When I finished I glued my Frida to the painted background and adorned my work with some washi tapes. I edited it in Gimp and added the quote. The original below.

Frida Tropical

“Nothing is worth more than laughter. It is strength to laugh and to abandon oneself, to be light. Tragedy is the most ridiculous thing.” 
― Frida Kahlo

I colorized the photo and added it to a background which I created using different textures. Frida is an inspiration.

Her new hat

Hello everyone!First of all I want to apologize: I haven't been able to comment your work as I like because it is the end of the bimester here and I have to dedicate myself to evaluate my students.What a difficult task! 
 Well, this is my digital drawing for this week. I do feel people look down on digital art but as I have said ten times before I had to learn how to control the mouse in order to draw. It is easier to get a pen or a pencil and design.Much easier. So, please, have kind eyes when you contemplate digital art. We are artists and it doesn't matter the medium you use as long as we can bewitch and marvel people. Thanks for your lovely visit, my friend!

Study, please!

“Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.” 
― Paulo FreirePedagogy of the Oppressed

Needless to say I love Paulo Freire. He is Brazilian like me and I am proud of him. I am a teacher and I believe in Education as an instrument of transformation. Everything has already failed but it. Education can still save people and help them to save themselves. I have seen some miracles and I hope to see some more till I retire. This is my simple contribution to Simon Says this week. I am also entering my card in some other challenges.

Bee Mine!

“There is one masterpiece, the hexagonal cell, that touches perfection. 
No living creature, not even man, has achieved, in the centre of his sphere, what the bee has achieved in her own: and were some one from another world to descend and ask of the earth the most perfect creation of the logic of life, we should needs have to offer the humble comb of honey.”
- Maurice Maeterlinck, The Life Of The Bee, 1924

Bees are lovely beings.They make me think of Mother Nature's perfection. She works in mysterious ways.
