new kid on the blog - 3 Muses




a new challenge blog called the 3 Muses has Mona Lisa as their theme. As I had not made an arch this week and so to prevent withdrawal symptoms....
I have used another grungy overlay by Lisa from Digitalcraftcottage and put a background from Artcreationsfriday on top of that I downloaded that a while ago and never got round to using it . ( makes me feel guilty)

The image of the little girl is from Artcreationsfriday as well.
Mona was courtesy of google..

een nieuw challenge blog - 3 Muses hebben Mona Lisa als eerste thema . Ik had deze week nog geen arch gemaakt dus om onthoudingsverschijnselen te voorkomen deze. Ik heb een grungy overlay gebruikt van lisa van Digitalcraftcottage en daaroverheen een achtergrond van Artcreationfriday. Het meisje is ook van ACF .

and just to show her in a different setting

Not to worry, we're OPEN TO EVERYONE, Ellen. Glad to see you here, and your Arch Mona is beautiful! If we had e-mail addresses, some invitations were sent, but there are many whose addresses we didn't have, and hence our blog announcements. Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Ellen, your Gothic Mona is gorgeous! I love everything about it - especially the beautiful colours. I am so happy to see you here.
The only reason you were not officially invited was that your email isn't showing on your profile. I have your name on a blog address list and intended to seek you out that way later this week. Much better that you are here already! (And please come back next time).

I love your Mona Arch and I love that you've shared the process. Brilliant.

Ellen, love both of your Mona's. My favorite is Mona behind the dressing screen. How clever! I bet she's glad she's changing into something new.

De Mona Lisa achter het kamerscherm is erg grappig en mooi. Zoals haar been net een stukje zichtbaar is.... oh la la.

Gorgeous Arch and I love her in the fitting room too.

Elizabeth Golden said...

Ellen, love what you have done with Mona. I love the arch, but the second one is great I actually did a double take.

Stacy said...

You arch is terrific and what a great way to combine some challenges! The background really goes well with Mona and I love the little bubble girl!
Your version of Mona behind the changing screen is very apropos as she has been quite the quick change artist these past few days! I see you used Mona in a tag also- it's great too. Love the background!
