Three Muses: Odd Bird

As usual, I did not read the caption for this week's challenge!! I went the other way and created this Odd Bird.... my Xray Bird!! Nothing unusual about this creature, other than you very rarely see a bird as unkempt as him!!
How I love these challenges to make me really think beyond the square!! Thanks.

ATC Love's warm fuzzy feeling!

Just could not resist this feeling of affections for toadstools in my garden! It just gave me the "AAAAAAHH" feeling!

Three Muses: Mail Art

I always image that... all the emails that go missing are out in the cosmos somewhere.... someone will be writing furiously to get them back to us!
How the mind works!!
Scary... sometimes!!

Theme Thursday... Something Round

"Bubble of Thought"
I am sure that all our thoughts are out there in the 'cosmos' bubbles.... just waiting to pop when we finally act on our thoughts! I know that I have many out there floating around waiting for the right time to land!

Three Muses: The Owl and I on a Magic carpet ride

This image has come from deep in my imagining..... using layers, filters and brushes, Photoshop allowed me the magic of creating what was in my mind for this challenge.

Eurydice... Goddess

Eurydice .... a Goddess of creation and death....she gives birth to souls, recognising that black is the colour of fertility and all life begins in darkness.

3 Muses Challenge Rust.. Notebook - Sticks - Leaves

Now!!! this is a challenge that is right up my artistic alley!! I work with rust in all of my art works, using a solution technique that changes the face of paper and cloth and any other stuff that you would like to dip into the solutions!
I have set out the 'recipe' here... free for all to experiment with and to use.... just a thanks on-line would be appreciated, after you have tried it!
Whilst you are on the page to get the rust recipe, have a look at the "Works on Paper" and you can see just how I have used the rust solution for these exhibiton pieces.
Have fun as I have had over the last 20 years using this non complicated way of getting 'rust'!!
The art work here is a book made from rusted paper, sticks that also went through the rust bath and leaves... all placed into a box that I constructed from 'foam core board' then dipped into the solution.... you never know what you are going to get!

Stretched me a little...
