"Ageless" - A Journal Page

"Ageless"
(Click on her hat to see the details!)

Isn't it amazing how one little change can make a whole world of creative difference? A recent swap for my art group entitled "The Black Project", suggested that we create a 5 1/2"x8 1/2"journal page using a black background. This fun challenge led me to discover a few new techniques and expanded my colorful, artistic horizons.

It's always serendipitous when a piece fulfills not only one, but two challenges. This week's challenge at The Three Muses is entitled, "Land of Odd". I think my ageless little Zetti will be right at home! If you have a few minutes, stop by The Three Muses for a ton of inspiration. You'll be happy you did!

May your day be filled with new discoveries!
