The Three Muses Challenge - It's Time

The lady is from e-vint.com.  I have coloured her and cut a modest skirt skirt from her sleeve to hide the fact that she was showing her knickers.  The clockparts are from JenU Designs.  Happy New Year to all our friends in Blogland and at Flickr.

Looking forward to a New Year - 2016

This week's theme at Take a Word and Digital Whisper is 2016.  A happy New Year to all our great  friends who have kept the challenges going for so many years.
I inadvertently chose the same theme as Patti's at Digital Whisper but everyone can post to both websites - the more the merrier!
The image is from e-vint.com, coloured and altered.  The quote comes from Carl Bard according to Brainy Quotes.

Three Muses Challenge - Altering famous portraits

This week Ann has invited us to alter famous portraits.  I decided to update Queen Elizabeth I by taking a body from a Modigliani painting and adding her head to it.  I'm sure she feels more comfortable, having thrown away the huge and heavy dresses she had to wear.

Take a Word Challenge - Winter

This week at Take a Word the theme is WINTER.  Even though it's summer in my world I can still enter into the spirit of things. Snow is completely alien to me but I managed to fashion Mr and Mrs Snowman, vintage style, in my ArtRage digital painting program.

Cheeky Challenge Tuesday - Rich (Man/Woman) - Moneybags

Thanks to June for this fun challenge.  I started off taking a more outrageous approach but this is a kinder version, one for which I hope I can't be sued.  The original image (minus head) was a black and white picture from Finecrafted Designs.  I have painted it and removed said head. The trump portrait was Googled, the background is from Itkupilli and the moneybags were painted by me.

Dezina World - Cheeky Challenge - Musical Theatre

Thanks to June for a great challenge.  The actress is from e-vint.com.  I have coloured and altered her and given her polka dot stockings.  The curtain and hat were painted by me (digitally in ArtRage software).

Dezina World - Cheeky Challenge - Friends

This week June has posted the theme "Friends".  Thankyou June.  The little girls have been on my computer for many years and I don't know the source.  The background sunflower stamp and script are from Katie Pertiet.  Images coloured and sharpened.
