Three Muses Challenge 22 - Cockadoodle Cluck

Bev is hosting this week's challenge at the Three Muses and she's chosen the theme of Cockadoodle Cluck and says anything goes (but just pop a chicken in there somewhere).

I had such great fun with this one so thank you Bev.

Credit to Granny Art and Honey Designs for the elements.

The font is Olli Compolli.


Altered Works of Art Challenge - Chris Mars

Jayne aka PeppaPig has a new challenge at Digital Art Quirks and for week 4 asked us to alter a piece by Chris Mars.

Here is what I came up with which is definitely tongue in cheek!

Credit to Granny Art for the rag dolls and the chairs, and to Playing with Brushes for the background.

Here is Chris Mars' original work.

Great fun.

Postage Stamp People

Marie (Ozstuff) hosted the DAQ challenge earlier in the week and chose Postage Stamp People as her theme.

Credit to Granny Art for the chicken, Pixel Music for the postcard, NumbBumm for the speech bubble. Mona and the crown are in the public domain. Font : Palsu

Ah and here she is again. Mona just couldn't make up her mind on the look she preferred.

DAQ October Bookmark - Remembrance

Here is bookmark No 2 for the October challenges at Digital Art Quirks. The theme for this one is Remembrance.

I chose a quote from Wilfred Owen's poem of the same name. The background image is Harry Patch who died aged 111 earlier this year but who was the last 'Tommy' to be involved in the First World War. Wilfred Owen is, of course, the foreground image (both images by Dover). The poppies, symbol of remembrance are courtesy of Granny Art blogspot.

Font is Isle of the Dead.

Three Muses Challenge 21 - Long Ago and Far Away

It's my turn to host the Three Muses Challenge this week and I have chosen Long Ago and Far Away.

Thinking of LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY I was reminded of Mabel's childhood. Her father Eustace, a very 'colourful' character went to great lengths to merge into the crowd for several hours of drinking and gambling, but Mabel's mother Gertie, a very determined lady, would grab that old shotgun, and with Daisy, Doris and Mabel in tow would search out the old rascal and show him the way home. Ah such fond memories of Sunday afternoon family entertainment.

Credit to Tammara at Pixel Music and Nicole Young for the elements used, and of course, Mabel is part of the family.

Thanks for looking.

DAQ - September ATC - Flower Power

I host the monthly Digital Art Quirks ATC challenge and for September I chose the theme of Flower Power.

Here is my interpretation.

All credit to the very talented and generous Efie at her blogspot for these free elements.

Thanks for looking.

Three Muses Challenge 20 - Hair

Marie is hosting the Three Muses Challenge this week and she has chosen Hair as her theme and as no one does Hair more beautifully than Mucha I chose one of his famous ladies for my interpretation.

Thanks Marie for another great challenge.

Thank you for looking.

Gone Fishing - Be Back In Two Weeks

Gone fishing ...... be back in two weeks.

No, just kidding, not going fishing at all, but we are taking a couple of weeks' holiday to have some fun, soak up the sun, take in the culture and relax.

See you in a couple of weeks.

Take care.
