Mixed Media Monday and The Three Muse Challenges


"Something NEW with WATER"


Thank you so much for stopping in today. I am so thrilled that I am making new friends through my new blog. It is like a whole other world doing Mix Media art. There is so much to learn with so much inspiration. I am learning about all these wonderful challenges and I am slowly going to figure each one out. Today, I am first entering the Mix Media Monday Challenge (very first time). The theme was “Something new”. Of course, you can interpret this in any way – a new technique, new tools or suppliesm a new idea or concept. Well this fits me perfect because this is only my second post here and the second time I have created something using my “NEW” Wacom tablet. I learned how to do transparency painting, used my warp feature and tried to make my own letter tiles. These techniques are all “firsts” for me.

This is also made using the sneak peek for “The 3 Muse” Challenge posting on Wednesday. The theme for the 3 Muse is “Water” In honor of my newest friend over at the 3 muse (Hi Marie, thanks for all your help), I thought I would use this image ;) Three beauties just basking in the sun! I am a vintage print lover and found this wonderful image of 3 women sitting on some rocks by the ocean, so I am hoping it is acceptable.
I have plans to dabble in all the different styles of the arts I am coming across on my newest journey. Learning all these new styles and techniques is becoming a wonderful and oh so enjoyable journey for me. I would love for you to follow along with me and would love to do the same for you.

I would love to hear your thoughts, comments and anything you could share to help me on my way through this new world.

We are only limited by our own imagination!

  2. Priscilla, your picture is wonderful. I don't have to use my imagine to think of sunny days by the sea (I am already there in my southern hemisphere summer) but none of the sights compared with those gorgeous vintage bathing beautifies, sunning themselves on the rocks. I love the frame and those letter tiles. Fantastic.
    (Don't forget to post a link on Wednesday at the Three Muses!)

  13. Congratualtions on your first entry at MMM! MMM and The Three Muses are two of my very favorite challenge blogs because of the very creative, supportive participants I've met at both . Your sassy sirens are tempting indeed. The frame and the hand-tinting enhance your image perfectly.
