The Three Muses Challenge - Circles and Squares

I'm late with my circles and squares.  I  made a pattern with circles and squares starting with nine squares of solid colour and overlaying them with semi transparent squares and circles.  I then applied a sphere action to the pattern, distorting it into a circle. 

Gothic Arch - Blue

The beautiful image is from a magazine cover (Flickr free-to-use).  The background is by Irene Alexeeva and the butterfly was Googled.

Collage Obsession - Winter Circus, every night at 8 o'clock.

For my friend Sherry I have used EVERY sample picture in her challenge.  The clown becomes Napoleon, the zebra has a new (strongman's) head, the "professor" has a new body (also from the strongman), one of the Geisha ladies has a new face (black and white altered), and the other Geisha has a new body (the ostrich).  A lot of overpainting and cutting and pasting (digitally).
Banner and circus notices are from Tangie Baxter at SBG.

Take a Word Challenge #51 - Childhood

The little girl is from Art Creations Friday and other bits and pieces by Create Wings Designs and Catherine Designs at After Five Designs.

Take a Word #50 - Blackbird

Here is a little known fact about Edgar Allan Poe.  He was intrigued by blackbirds and he decided to keep a pair in his home.  Unfortunately, they were prolific breeders and soon he found himself overtaken and his house was full of squawking birds!
All items Googled.
