Three Muses Challenge 26 - Time

This week it's Marie's turn to host the challenge at the Three Muses and she has chosen TIME as her theme.

Here is what my muse chose to have me do, and I'm not sure what it means. Is it the beginning of time, or birth or rebirth? Well I don't know either but I really enjoyed creating it. So thanks Marie.

Credit also goes to Irene Alexeeva and the very generous Efie who offers daily freebies on her blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

Chunky Book Challenge - Holidays

This is my piece for Victoria's Chunky Book - Holidays challenge.

This is called We Are Not Amused because the little doll with the Santa hat reminds me of Queen Victoria who was famous for claiming she was not amused. My holiday as you might have guessed is Christmas.

Mixed Media Monday - I Am Woman

Digital ATC Swap - For November

FLY ME TO THE MOON is my choice of theme for the ATC swap at Digital Art Quirks this month and I thought we would try something completely different. I made the swap Digital.

The idea is to complete an ATC, both front and reverse, post a low res copy (72 dpi) in the DAQ gallery and send a high res copy (300 dpi) to me. At the end of the month I will then send out an email to each participant with a copy of each ATC received, as an attachment. Mmmmmm. Let's see how it goes!

Below is a copy of the complete ATC. You can view the credits on the Reverse side.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

Three Muses Challenge 24 - In Your Dreams

This week it's my turn to host the Three Muses challenge and the theme I've chosen is IN YOUR DREAMS.

The piece I've chosen as my sample illustrates part of a poem I love for the imagery it conjures in me. (Alas I don't know the author.)

Credit goes to June at Art Freebies, Playing with Brushes and Efie at her blogspot.

However, I was in two minds this week and couldn't resist a second attempt at IN YOUR DREAMS and so for my own enjoyment, and for the surreal artist inside me, I created a little dream landscape of my own. Is someone dreaming of a nice cup of tea? Mmmmmmm.

Credit for this one goes to Rian, Bisontine, Irene Alexeeva, Granny Art, and Efie. The hand belongs to my granddaughter which I snapped whilst she was snoozing in the sunshine.

The font is Prissy Frat Boy.

Thank you so much for looking.

Glamourous Women - Inchie Challenge - DAQ
