Three Muses - Playing Cards

This was a fun challenge, and a challenge indeed!  I'm anxious to see what the other artists have done with it.  Those who respond to the Three Muses challenges are an amazingly talented group of artists, who never cease to inspire me with their talents.   Thanks for stopping by!

Take a Word - Vintage

I was happy to provide the example at Take a Word this week.  Vintage is one of my favorite things, because I qualify as vintage myself.  Credits:  Flickr Collage Images and Create Wings Designs.  Thanks for stopping by!

Three Muses - Gone With the Wind

I remember seeing this movie when it first came out, and the collective gasp in the theater when Rhett said "Frankly, Scarlet, I don't give a damn".  Such language on the screen was unheard of.  My oh my how times have changed!   Margaret Mitchell did not feel the movie stayed true to her novel, but it became one of the most beloved movies of all times.  It was fun to revisit it with this challenge.  The montage is from Googled movie stills, and the reader is a personal sketch.

Collage Obsession - Quote

The challenge is to illustrate a quote. The quote is, in part, lyric from the song "I Hope You Dance".  Credit to CR Designs for the frame, Create Wings for the stars, Elizabeth Golden for the dancer's body.  The head is my own sketch.  Thanks for looking!
OOPS!   I didn't realize it had to be the quote given, I thought it was any quote.  Sorry!

Take a Word - Birds

The bird is compliments of Land of Nod (Thanks much!), and I cybersurfed for the dictionary page.  Thanks for stopping to see me!

Three Muses - Footprints

I did two pieces for Ann's footprints challenge -- one whimsical, and one thoughtful.  For the first, I couldn't resist a silly play on words.  The second is a family photo and, when I first saw it, I immediately cropped it to just the feet.  There's something about the tiny feet beside Dad's that tugs at my heartstrings.  I felt the quote was appropriate as well.   Thanks for indulging me!

Collage Obsession 11/11

I like to experiment with adding my sketched faces to "found" bodies.  This is one of those experiments!  Thanks for having a look!

Take a Word - Balloons


My reluctant party-goer is compliments of Land of Nod, credit for balloons to Fidlette.   I love the look on this little guy's face.  Wouldn't you like to read his mind?    Thanks for visiting!

Three Muses - Grunge

I love grunge!!  There's always a temptation to add just a splash of color, but I overcame it.   Sorry, I don't remember where I got this image.  I split it into two for effect, and decided to add nothing else and let it be in stark simplicity (I hope!).  Thanks for visiting.
