Fun Day Sunday: Catching up on Grati’s Richard Armitage Wallpapers and Such, 1/27/13 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #351)

In addition to my writing stories and essays about Richard Armitage, I also like to create graphics.  Though I am no artist, it is fun to play around with Photoshop (image manip) and Powerpoint (layering)  to create these collages/wallpapers.  So what follows are some graphics that I have shared elsewhere on Facebook and maybe Twitter, but not here on my blog yet.  The dates indicate when I published the graphic elsewhere–working backwards in time. Enjoy!

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

    Great graphics, Grati! All of them are sooo beautiful ♥, but at the moment the two of them the most appeal to my heart. Namely, majestic Thorin (Thorin’s Legacy of his people) and cuddly John Standring.


    • HiAnia,
      Thanks for your very nice note about my graphics.

      Richard Armitage has also astounded me with his Thorin Oakenshield portrayal! His ferocity and majestic bearing command the screen when he is on it–which is most of the time. I have greatly admired Mr. Armitage’s acting and storytelling talents since I first laid eyes on him portraying John Thornton in in North & South (2004) when I rented its dvd in 2010. But RA’s Thorin is superb!

      And in Mr. Armitage’s portrayal of John Standring, he is such a big bear of a man–honorable, steadfast, kind, and loving–that you want every good thing to come his way. And yes, cuddling will be involved. Giggles!

      Cheers! Grati ;->
