hot hot hot


the theme for 3 Muses this week is hot hot hot.

I made the background with an embossingfolder then used Gesso and
lots of Distressink and Glimmermist then I thought of dancing ,and
started with an image of Moulin Rouge . I could imagine people with
hot faces there but it didn't go the way I wanted.
So then I remembered those months we were in Kenya and how red the
soil was and how beautiful the Masai women with all their beady decorations
and red/orange robes and how hot it was there.

Ellen I'm glad you chose to depict the red soil of Kenya and of course their majestic women. This is such an original and wonderful take on this week's theme. Kudos to you.

Ellen, I love your artpiece which is so creative and a different take on the HOT theme. The Kenyan women are beautiful and the colours are magnificent. Great work.

Wow! This turned out beautifully, despite your misgivings!!!

Ik vind dit eigenlijk nog veel orgineler dan je oorspronkelijke plan om een foto van de Moulin Rouge te gebruiken !!
Print je trouwens ooit je backgrounds om die ook digitaal te gebruiken ? Ik vind deze echt super mooi gelukt !!
