Three Muses Challenge - Altered Playing Cards

Thanks to Bev for a great challenging challenge!!  The background is a ripped out page from an old dictionary, coloured and altered.  The chair, vintage playing cards and scattered "suits" are from Irene Alexeeva.  I painted the face and cut a dress from the old cards.  Lower half of the lady from an image from Tumblefish.

The Three Muses Challenge - Footprints

Thanks to Ann for her footprints challenge this week.  I have used Ann's footprints template in my picture. The paper doll (greatly altered) is by Joanne Brisebois, Oscraps.  I made a "tiara" and wings from the footprints (altered) and I guess the footprints "walking all over me" are actually JUMPING as they are close together.  Background and gesso by Rosey Posey.  PS brushes also used.

I have created two pictures this week, both in the grunge/print theme but with subtle differences.  Here I have used cut and pasted newsprint background with film strip by Joanne Brisebois, googled photo of Charlie Chaplin converted into a digital stamp with lots of grungy brushes.
Here I scanned a page from an old dictionary, added some grunge and made an altered image from an old photo and converted a ballerina picture into a silhouette.

My Queen of Hearts is made from lots of bits and pieces.  I started with a paper doll by Joanne Brisebois and a heart painted by me.  A playing card overlay was added to the pieces of newsprint, the spray of hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades and the crown are from Irene Alexeeva.
