Digitalmania Challenge!!

Good morning dear friends,

Today I'm showing you three collages I've made using images by Joseph Christian Leyendecker.
If you've never heard of him, neither had I!! He was a very prolific artist and designed no end of magazine covers, etc. So the challenge was to use his images in a different way for Digitalmania on Flickr.
The top one has my own background and is a take on his LIFE painting.
The second one speaks for itself...he made a lot of male images and it is said he was Gay. No matter, he was brilliant!
The third one is my idea for a Book cover, again with my own background.
Thank you for looking and I hope you enjoy.

Here we are at a Bank Holiday weekend. There should be a lot of visitors in the village but I don't know what the weather will be like. It started off at 6am. with brilliant sunshine and blue sky .....but...it is now cloudy...........
I had a stressful day yesterday.......phone calls to sort out yet another problem with the hospital transport for Freddie. Then the phone didn't stop ringing.....Then the plumber came and I had to move boxes and things so he could get into a cupboard......etc. etc.
I was glad to try and relax in the afternoon.
I'm going out this morning in the car, over to see an old friend for coffee, so that'll be nice.

Whatever you're doing this weekend, I hope you have a very pleasant one, with friends or family,nice places to visit and lots of love and laughter.

                                      Thank you so much for visiting. Love and Hugs,
                                                                 June xxxxxx

Whoa June, your collages are amazingly beautiful, I've never heard of this artist before but I'm sure going to find out, such pretty images! Hope you have a wonderful time with your friend, sipping that lovely coffee together! Hugs, Ira x

You mean if you use male images in your pictures that makes you gay? Oh dear. And here I use them because you women use women in your pictures all the time, and I try to give us men equal time. I just can't win! :O)

I've actually seen old Life magazine covers with pictures of men drawn like that, so I must have seen his work and not known who he was. All three of your collages are wonderful as always!
