THREE MUSES CHALLENGE 55 - BUTTONS AND BOWS



Florence has a date this evening and wants to make just the right impression. She decides on BUTTONS and BOWS because they make her feel feminine, interesting, a little bit daring and .........



colourful!

Bev is our host this week at the Three Muses and she's chosen BUTTONS and BOWS as her theme. Thanks Bev, I really enjoyed this one.

Hope she's smiling by the end of the evening, Ann! Fabulous piece, love the colours & layers!
(Lots of hot air here this a.m. as NZ has achieved their first ever points in the world cup - Italy next!!)

I wonder if those earrings are telling her when to wait, stop or go!! Sort of blingy traffic lights and guardian of her morals.

This is fantastic, Ann. I love its whimsicality and its humour. Great artwork.

My goodness. Those buttons and bows certainly made Florence come alive! So cleverly done, Ann. You are always to think outside the box and come up with something creative and rare!

What a fantastic earring design, Ann! I'd certainly wear such a jewel if I had one. Your pair of images is very interesting: it shows what a dramatic effect colours have in an image. Great work!
