Three Muses Challenge - Silhouettes

This is one of my moldy oldies which I had stored away in my files.  It was inspired by the artist, Romare Bearden, who specialised in wonderful collages, often in silhouette form, on the subject of jazz and other types of music.  I found silhouette brushes of musicians, gave them some colour and placed them on a bright background to make a Beardenesque poster.  (Check Google Images under the artist's name to see his work).

Collage Obsession Challenge - Headress


The image was googled.  I like the unusual face!  Her hair was a mess so I lightened it in colour and drew in a hairnet. Flowers, fruit and bird are from Itkupilli at Mischief Circus.

Take a Word Challenge - ALTERING MONA

It always seems to be that Mona is keeping secrets.  I have given her a 1920's look and a "facial" and added a scarf.  The image and background are both from Itkupilli at Mischief Circus.

Sunday Postcard Art Challenge - Shoes

Thanks for a nice challenge.  I made the background from a scanned dictionary page and the shoes/boots were googled.  Dried rose from my own photo.
