THREE MUSES CHALLENGE 49 - SEEING STARS



Bev has chosen the theme of STARS for this week's challenge at the Threee Muses and here is my interpretation. If you enlarge you may be surprised at what you see in this otherwise Classical piece.

Credit to Joes Sistah for the backgrounds (greatly altered), to Dover Free to Use for the Lady, likewise altered. The crown is Irene Alexeeva, whilst the other bits and pieces are either my own or Googled.

Thank you Bev, for a great theme and thank you all for taking the time to look.

How did you get the crackle paint in her forehead?! Wonderful satrs. Are they from Joes Sistah? What's the website?

This is SO wonderful. Wowee - zowee!
