Mixed Media Monday - Enchanted

It is very easy for a child to be enchanted and what a pity it is that we lose that ability as we grow older.
Background and child (altered and overpainted) by Katie Pertiet, bird by Sausan, butterflies by Trish Jones, wings by Ruth Davis, net Googled.

  4. This is gorgeous Marie - so delicate and of course, that saying is so true! I understand that "growing old is a fact but growing up, is optional!" So I choose to remain enchanted... =)

  8. Oh Marie...how beautiful. So dreamy and out of this world. I love the quote and the colours are gloriously dreamy. You know, I was really comtemplating this very word this week, change. It seems to be etching it's way into my heart and as I sat this is exactly what came to my mind....the chrysalis.

    Bees and butterflies, how important they are to our very existence. It's amazing how God has made everything for a purpose and these tiny things which we don't see these days are such a true example. I really hope people would wake up to see what they're doing to this world. (I guess one day they will but it may be too late then.)
