We've Come A Long Way

We women have come a long way.  This being an election year here in the USA I got to thinking ... we were not always allowed to vote, can you believe it?  Well I started looking at pictures of the suffragettes and decided to create a collage in honor of these ladies, just ordinary folks like us.

Have a great day and enjoy the weekend.

Hugs Jackie

Such a wonderful source of inspiration and something we all need to stop and remember. I live in Scotland and although at times I might despair of politics I always vote as I view it as a privilege to be able to do so.
Wonderful mix of textures that blend together to perfection and I like the touches of the red, white and blue.
A stunning and thought provoking piece of art.

Such an important time for women. THey fight for all the women of the worls at that time. Still there are places on this moment were women has no voice.

Your collage is so beautiful and still so feminin with the lace and the details of blue, red and creamy.
Love it Jacky.

Have a nice weekend
