Known as ‘The Voice of the Empire’ or ‘The Voice of the Century’, Dame Clara Butt (1872-1936) was born in Sussex and brought up in Bristol. She became one of the most famous and beloved of English recitalists and concert singers. A ‘booming’ contralto, she was remarkably imposing at 6′ 2″. Sheet music, tea tray and piano from The Graphics Fairy. Other sheet music from DigitalCollageImages on Flickr. The flourish to the left is from VintageArtDownload.com and the vintage postcard of Clara Butt is in my own collection.

A gentle touch of steampunk to start the week. I’ve used the reverse of one of my vintage postcards and added an almond green texture. To this I have placed steampunk ephemera from Design Cuts, and a fish from The Graphics Fairy.


“Steampunk is…a joyous fantasy of the past, allowing us to revel in a nostalgia for what never was. It is a literary playground for adventure, spectacle, drama, escapism and exploration. But most of all it is fun!”
George Mann

A feast of elements went into creating Regency Rapture. A companion piece to Mademoiselle Couture, it uses the same lady from EKDuncan. The ostrich egg on the base of gilded bronze, an anonymous piece made between 1760 and 1765, is from the Rijksmuseum, which you may recognise from Goose and Frog’s Easter Journey. The vintage advertising comes from The Graphics Fairy and the flourish atop the small ostrich egg duplicate is from Mindy Somers’ Vintage Art Download. I should not forget the green texture background, which is from 2 Lil’ Owls Confetti Collection, as if you hadn’t already guessed!
