Book Covers for "Bride From A Hat"

Back Cover

Cover for my story "Bride From A Hat".  It is supposed to look like a lace veil. The woman is taken from a Costume Parisien fashion plate shown elsewhere on this blog.  The story is  The blog is named after the London Club begun by the hero. To join, one must rob a coach, but only for a trifle: a lock of hair, a lady's glove, or a kiss from a pretty girl.  All in good fun, tho some grumpy old people have complained...

Costume Parisien Empire Fashion Plate
French Empire Fashion Plate
While looking thru my files for scans that might make a nice "Regency Valentine's Day Card" I found nested file-within-file a folder labeled "MISC Scans". Full of gorgeous scans, mostly of French fashion plates. So I am looking forward to hours of nit-picky photoshop fun.  Heh.

Photoshop Ice Sculpture Instructions... coming (pretty) soon.

Well, crumb! Goggle has made it difficult to post or edit this blog with my current Browser. Hmpf.

I've been busy moving, running around trying to get utilities set up and so on. Didn't have internet connection till a couple of days ago.

I intended to give instructions on how to make the "Ice Sculptures" but when I finally got around to it... I can't remember the exact process!  Why didn't I note them down? I'd got the process to about, hmmm, five or 6 simple steps.  So, I'm re-discovering the whole thing.  Of course I remember most of the steps, but not the order, and I seem to have forgotten something important, that gives the "ice" that translucent and chilly look.  While fooling around last night I found a way to make a really COOL snow-person.

In a couple of days I'll have figured it all out, and simplified it.  I think.

Regency Christmas- Snow Globe with Man

This one was fairly easy, as the ice-skating young French Hottie was already done (you can find it elsewhere on this blog).  I'm working on a lady skating, taking another Costume Parisien fashion print and altering it.  I've been working on an "Ice Sculpture" of an Ackermann's Beauty... family says it isn't "icy enough".  So I'm just mulling it over.

Regency Christmas Cards

Let's see... Daughter is doing well, tho experiencing some pain from the 9" scar in her side. Possibly "adhesions". She probably should have had a little post-surgical physical therapy.  She's started school this week, enjoying herself, tried out for a play.

I'm going to make a few more Regency Christmas Cards this year, just for fun and to get back into practice.  I used to do so every year, but dropped off the Almacks list accidentally! and got out of the habit.  This year I'm going to alter a couple of the Costume Parisien plates. Not sure which ones...

I'm open to any requests & suggestions! I'll post the cards at 200dpi, good for downloading.  If anyone wants higher (300) dpi, just send me an email.

Here is a Regency Ice Skating print from Long Ago:

Ice Skating Print from Regency Era, I think.
