Three Muses Challenge 31 - Something Old, Something New

It's my turn to host the Three Muses challenge and this week I have chosen the theme of SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW.

This theme could have taken many turns, and I was tempted to create some steam punk, and then I thought about the something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue connected to the gifts given to a bride on her wedding day, but in the end I went for a more comic theme.

Meet Harold, a gentleman of a certain age, who has a liking for wearing ladies footwear. Also meet Doris and Daisy, who like nothing better than a good old gossip, and here they are seated on their luggage waiting for transport to their New Year's holiday whilst discussing Harold's outlanding footwear.

Digital Art Quirks - Artist's Studio Challenge

Marie, aka Ozstuff, is hosting the Artist's Studio challenge at Digital Art Quirks this week and she asked us to make a journal page.

However, before I could get going Mabel took over and made her own journal page about her thoughts on Christmas.

Fonts used are : Depressionist Three, Mark, Matejino, Soft Autumn and Pushkin.

Three Muses Challenge 30 - Home

Bev is hosting the Three Muses Challenge this week and she has chosen HOME as her theme.

It's freezing cold and snowing outside, here in the UK, and so I thought a cosy warm house might be the order of the day. So here we are.

Great choice Bev.

Sunday Postcard Art - Christmas

Here is my contribution for this week's Sunday Postcard theme of CHRISTMAS.

It's also for the Crazy Amigo challenge theme of Christmas Tree.

I made the Christmas tree from some of my recent pieces of artwork. Could you tell?

It really is a postcard, though the background is white!

May I wish all my blogfriends a very Merry Christmas and an artful New Year.

Thanks for looking.

Mabel's Christmas Wishes

You can't keep a good woman down, (even when there's no label on the bottle). Looks like Mabel's starting Christmas early.

So from Mabel and Taluula here's wishing you all a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR.

December ATC - Tis The Season

I host the monthly ATC challenge across at Digital Art Quirks and this month I chose Happy Holiday as the theme.

I chose Charles Dicken's Christmas Carol (and now a new film) for my take on the theme.

This will be our second DIGITAL ATC swap, though from January we will alternate between a 'mailed' card and an 'emailed' card on a monthly basis.

Thank you for looking.

Three Muses Challenge 29 - Mail Art

This week Marie has chosen the theme of Mail Art, and that made me think about whether is should be airmail, email or snail mail and I couldn't choose so I added my interpretation of them all.

Credit to Elizabeth Golden, Shelly Marie Scraps and Irene Alexeeva.

The fonts are Napapiiri, Eight Track Program, Hasty Pudding and Orator Std.

Thanks Marie for a great challenge.

Three Muses Challenge 28 - Bottles and Jars

This week Bev is hosting the Three Muses challenge and the theme she's chosen is BOTTLES and JARS.

I wanted my bottles and jars to be part of a landscape or a landscape within a landscape and so that is how this evolved : three separate landscapes inexorably linked to tell a story, which is of course, message in a bottle!

The elements are much altered are credit to TakeABreak, Farrah's Designs, CAJoline, Efie, NumbBumm, Tammara at Pixel Music, Juno (Dulcet) Terri at Pringle Hill Studio, GrannyArt and Honey Designs. Thanks all.

Thank you for a great challenge Bev.

Three Muses Challenge 27 - Fun and Games

It's my turn to host the Three Muses challenge this week and I chose FUN AND GAMES as my theme.

Games, made me think of Chess, and so I populated my chessboard with not only chess pieces but also all manner of strange and outlandish images to create a surreal landscape, before allowing the chessboard to slowly slide into the sea. Great fun.

Credit goes to Urban Fairy, CAJoline and Efie.

Thank you for taking the time to look.
