Take a Word Challenge - Wings

"Stop the World, I want to get off!" was a stage musical in the early 1960's, written by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley.  The quote is said to have originally come from graffiti on a wall.
The lady is from (coloured from the original black and white).  The background is by Lorie Davison at Scrapbookgraphics (colour enhanced and filtered).  Wings were found on Google.

Three Muses Challenge - The stuff of nightmares.

Halloween has never been a big thing in Australia.  In fact, it was not until very recent years that stores began to stock costumes and other bits and pieces. It's all a bit foreign to me so my picture is about the stuff of nightmares.
I found the image (a romantic era portrait, artist unknown) on Google along with the skeleton and the gravestone.  A few filters have been used to achieve a grungy, vintage look.

Take a Word Challenge - Movie Poster


Anja is hosting the challenge this week and she has suggested creating a poster (movie, theatre, etc).  I have chosen the movie "She Done Him Wrong".  Doing wrong to Cary must surely have been a crime.  In 1933, Cary Grant was a newcomer to movies and Mae West was the big star.  Images Googled, backgrounds by Irene Alexeeva and the ticket by Kubivet. Colour added to black and white images.

The Three Muses Challenge - THE SEA

Mermaids must tire of draping themselves in seaweed and scales so why not some high fashion designs for them?
My mermaid has a face drawn by me and an outfit (complete withpeplum)  all cut from a fish tail by Irene Alexeeva.  The bubbles, shell (re-coloured) and raffia bow are also by Irene.  Background by Lorie Davison.

Take a Word Challenge - Balloons

This really is my Uncle Paul (by marriage).  He lives in an old family album that was passed on to me and every now and then I drag him out and give him an airing in various guises.  He hasn't been seen on the Blog for quite a while but I am sure many of you will remember him.
Family photo greatly altered and coloured.  ArtRage balloons.  Googled boots and hat.  Background and clouds by Createwings Designs.

Three Muses Challenge - Journal Page

Some people equate solitude with loneliness but for me it is enjoying a peaceful time alone, removed from the rat race of life.
Backgrounds by Joanne Brisbois.  Image from Flickr free-to-use images (made into a digital brush). The quote is by Henry David Thoreau.
