Three muses


The challenge this week for the three muses is 'ART IN THE ROUND'.
This is the 1st 'page' of my beer mat book.
I made a background using paint, i mixed the colours myself and added mica to get a shimmer.
I stamped the ladys head/face in black and added colour with promarkers. I then stamped a clock face on the left hand edge and mesh.
I inked the edge with dark grey then mounted it to my beer mat... i havent done the back yet, might keep that for another challenge.
I wrote 'time is too...' in a spiral on top of my images... i saw a sticker once with these words on and they've stayed in my mind ever since. Thanks for stopping by. love lynx
