Marie suggested we ALTER MONA this week for the Take a Word challenge.  I was about to do just that when I discovered Mona had already made her escape leaving behind her own altered Mona in her place.  I did get the feeling she was there somewhere though, I could feel her eyes ...

Credit to FinecraftedDesign for the suspicious looking man and the background, TumblefishStudio for the 'disguise',  and Mona, as always, was herself.

Back from my lovely holiday fully recharged and ready to go.

Thank you for looking.

This week we have UNDERWEAR as our theme at the Three Muses and the reminded me of the vintage photographs I recently found in the attic.   I particularly liked this one of Elsie and Enid who were transformed from the old ladies I knew to the young and vivacious girls they once were.

Thank you for looking.

(I will be away from tomorrow for a couple of weeks (our holiday to Turkey) so won't be able to comment on your work, though I will certainly be able to enjoy it.)

THANK YOU to Bev and Marie for stepping up to take on my hosting too.

We have SHAPES as our word for inspiration at TAKE A WORD this week and I chose a Gothic Arch.  Then for no reason I can fathom this happened ... I blame the Muse!

Credit to AllFreeDownloads (for the grass, sun and clouds),  and I confess to a little help from Michaelangelo and Magritte.  The background is my own.

Thank you for looking.

Call me old fashioned, but doesn't a fish's expression always make it look full of sorrow?  Hee hee!

Bev asked for SORROW this week at the Three Muses and so here we are!

Thank you for looking.

We have NUMBERS this week at TAKE A WORD and that reminded me of the stilt walkers I saw the other day advertising their next show.  To be honest, they were pretty scary so I dashed indoors before I caught their 'eye'.

Credits : I really did see the stilt walkers one wet day in our market place and they were kind enough to pose for me.  Just to keep their anonymity safe though I gave them new heads and hair (from the public domain ... as were the clocks).  The remainder is a mix of my own photos and textures to form the background.

Thank you for looking.

I will be away for a few days so won't be able to comment until later in the week.
