The Three Muses Challenge Blog

there is a new challenge blog in town…Marie, Bev and Ann will be hosting a weekly Wednesday challenge…The Three Muses

their first theme is Mona Lisa

I created a Mona Mermaid using an arch from back in April that I was never happy with…what would I do without gesso 🙂  Ranger Crackle Paint also helped the transformation

  3. Oh Wow! This is absolutely stunning – and so beautiful. I am lost for words! The colours are amazing and the composition is just fantastic and beautiful. I agree with Shelly that your photographic work is so good.
    Blogspot is not as friendly as WordPress when it comes to linking. It is OK just to type in “my picture is on my blog” and everyone will find it. Thankyou so much for joining in the challenge. I hope you can come back next week for our “Doors” challenge. (Wednesday)
