THE THREE MUSES


Our theme at the Three Muses this week is to use a FENCE in our artwork.  Then, looking out of my window a week last Tuesday, I saw these three guys tugging at the moon.  What a coincidence and how strange.!

TAKE A WORD and the THREE MUSES



I will be away from home from Monday to Friday of this week so here are my contributions for both the Take a Word (Circles) and the Three Muses (Joy of Books) challenges.



It's CIRCLES at Take a Word this week.  Plenty of circles here I think!

No credits for this one as this is all my own work created from this and that.


JOY OF BOOKS is the choice of theme at the Three Muses this week and as autumn and the dark nights draw in I thought about how nice it would be to read books by candlelight.  Well not really, not good for the eyes, but it makes a nice scene!!!!

TAKE A WORD


Our theme at Take a Word this week is AUTUMN COLOURS and that made me think that as the nights draw in and the temperature drops, the best way to celebrate autumn is with candles, a glass of wine and a nice hot bath.  Mmmmmm.

TAKE A WORD


Our theme at Take A Word this week is BLACK, WHITE AND RED.  The dress (a little black number from my wardrobe!!!) seemed just the thing and even more so when I added a beautiful pure silk red rose.  I might wear this the next time I'm invited to something special :D

Credits to Bluesse for the dress, hat, cigarette holder and the mannequin whilst the background is one of my own photos of a church seen through a window shade.

We have STRIPES as our theme at the Three Muses this week and as our Union Flag is comprised of stripes what could be more appropriate!  I added a few more stripes (the London Underground Map) and a modern day barcode just for good measure!

THE THREE MUSES


So, it's MODES OF TRANSPORT across at the Three Muses this week and that reminded me of the lovely green striped fish I saw riding his bicycle clean out of our garden pond (a week last Tuesday).  Not like any fish I've ever seen before and in fairness I'm not sure whether he was a fish since he swore he was a butterfly.  and who am I to disagree!  I loved his crown though.

TAKE A WORD


Our word for inspiration at Take A Word this week is BALLOONS and yes, I admit it, it did remind me of the girl I saw from my bedroom window (a week last Tuesday).  There she was as large as life floating sedately by apparently without a care in the world.  I think she was having a wonderful adventure!
