It's time for a new Lunagirl Moonbeams blog challenge, and since I've just created a fresh batch of digital collage sheets featuring all kinds of animals, I've chosen the theme Vintage Menagerie.
A "menagerie" originally referred to a collection of "exotic" animals collected by European kings and queens. "Exotic" could include new world animals such as porcupines and opossums! Later, travelling commercial menageries displayed all kinds of animals to a curious public -- from lions and tigers and elephants to fancy types of cats and dogs and birds. Eventually the antique menageries evolved into modern zoos.
So... feature your favorite pet or your favorite animal! Are you a cat person or a dog person? Or maybe you prefer turtles and fish, or exotic birds! My favorite animals are cats and foxes. What do you visit first at the zoo? I have always liked the elephants and giraffes... but who can resist the lions and tigers and bears (oh my!) Not to mention gorillas, and sea lions, and those beautiful gazelles... You get the idea... anything goes, just so you feature one or more animal. Wild animals or woodland creatures or friendly pets, all are welcome! Find vintage animals to inspire you at Lunagirl.com.
Here are the guidelines for this challenge:
- This challenge (#26) will end at Noon (Central Time) on May 4.
- Any craft or medium is OK,
- No more than 3 entries from one person in each challenge,
- Vintage style is encouraged, and
- Please link to this blog and Lunagirl.com on your site if you have one.
- Prize: The winner will be selected randomly to win a $10 coupon for Lunagirl.com!
- Of course I love if you use at least one Lunagirl.com product, and I hope you'll go take a look at my collection... but that's not a requirement!
- However, if you use a Lunagirl image, you will be entered TWICE in the drawing! I want to welcome everyone and every style but also give a little something extra to my wonderful customers!
