Her name was 'Elegance'

Hello  
 
Today for my AJJ 'Elegance and Grunge' challenge page I had some fun and I first wrote a poem and then used that idea to create a digital page.
The background is from one of my scanned Gelli prints and then I added images from various clip art collections I have plus some digital elements from kits called...  'His story, Steampunk parlour (Daisytrail), Grunge en rouge (by me) and ‘Another time' (GT designs).
The font I used is called 'Candy Square BTN'.

Its a sunny day and the birds are singing. I love this time of year when the birds are busy nesting and singing more. Outside I can hear a Blackbird singing a lovely song, it is probably our resident Blackbird, this is him sitting in one of the Lilac tree,  he's a friendly chap and comes up close to us.
 
 
 And as well as admiring him in the tree, I love looking at the Lilac trunks as they have great grungy textures and lovely patterns on them.
 

 
 
Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you have a  great day
Gill x

Aaawww what a sweet story, Gill, and a great illustration.
Having a resident car mechanic will be very useful, and I'm sure he has a nice shower when he comes home to her elegant house. He is hard-working too and looks rather fine!
Love that your blackbird comes near you, blackies are great birds, they are so caring of their young. Your blackie is looking good, that's a great photo.

I like this, a great work with a lot of imagination!
And the barns I always find interesting, sometimes you can even recognize faces in them.
Warm regards

Your poem is delightful and I love the digital page you created, there are so many lovely details! The way you have combined the images of your elegant lady and her beautiful possessions with her mechanic's grunge and grime is perfect! Wishing you a great week! J 😀
