THREE MUSES CHALLENGE 58 - RUST


Bev has chosen RUST as her theme for this week which made me think of old machinery and I even created a collage based on a photo I took in New Zealand of a rusty and mangled old train.  But then  I found the perfect textured background by SkelitalMess and a glamorous lady from Magical Moonlight and I immediately went down a different track altogether.  Thanks Bev for making me think outside the box.

Thank you for looking.

Marie, like me, is addleheaded from entertaining visitors...she's called you Bev! I love it when you go "outside the box", Ann. This is a beautiful piece. The background is perfect, and the lady gorgeous!

Glamour certainly does blend well with rust, Ann, wonderful piece! Like you I started with my own photo of a rusty farm machine from along the road but was diverted to glamour!
