Three Muses Challenge 13 - Charlie Chaplin

It's my turn this week to host the Three Muses challenge and I have chosen the theme of Charlie Chaplin.

So I layered, and coloured and blended, added a bit here and moved a bit there and ....... taa daa ..... this is the new Charlie Chaplin. I hope you like what you see.

Credit : All five images of Charlie Chaplin are in the public domain. The artist's dummy is my own.

Indeed TAA DAA Ann !
You have styled charlie in so many and different ways !
And every time that i see Charlie i have to think of that famous quote of him "A day without laughter is a day wasted".
What a fantastic item to challenge !

Great blending. I looked at it with baited breath, hoping against hope you hadn't chosen the same image I did, and I'm in luck!! This is so well done, Ann. Great inspirational piece!

Just today, in my 11th grade English class, we discussed the fact that Charlie Chaplin was a vitim of Mccarthy's Red Scare. How's that for coincidence! i didn't have time to make an entry for the challenge this week, but I love your very original take on The Little Tramp. In fact, I plan to show it to a few of my students who've taken up art journaling themselves!

Ann, your varied views of Charlie are wonderful - pure gold, as evidenced by the beautiful main colour which just shines out from the page. This is a stunning tribute to a great star.

Glad I zoomed in on your piece, Ann, as I would have missed so much, fabulous layers & blending, you chose some greta images too to make it perfection!
