Smeared Ink New Digi Release Blog Hop

Welcome to a new digi release blog hop from fabulous Smeared Ink. There are 2 digi sets being released today, May 9th, and for today only if you buy 2 digi sets you can get one free!!!




My image is from the VonBayros set, showing a lovely woman who is chained to a rock surrounded by birds. Franz Von Bayros was Croatian, brought up in Austria and part of the Decadent Art movement. But looking at the picture I am reminded of the Irish folk tale of Fionnuala and the Children of Lir, a woman and her brothers who were imprisoned by chains and cursed to be swans, in their case, for 300 years. I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and Pitt Pens, mounted & framed on cardstock with a touch of foil to represent the chains and a feather. I will be putting this card in my personal journal, just after the Brighid page.

Here is the list of blog participants and don't forget the sale!
