The Three Muses "Newspaper"


This is a little 6 x 8 canvas. I covered it all over with newspaper scraps from this week's Saturday paper. I then collaged and painted over it and added some stamping. The words are random words that called out to me as I leafed through the same Saturday paper.

  1. Hi Astrid - Bev has opened this week's challenge so, if you are around, don't forget to post your most beautiful art piece. First of all, I had been wondering where you were, not having read your note on your blog that you were going to be away. It is good to have you back!!
    I'm sorry but whenever I see your latest artwork the word EXQUISITE is the first word to come into my mind. This one has blown me away. It is superb. I love the fact that you used a recent newspaper for your background, the images are perfect, the use of highlighted words is inspired and the lace and butterfly are beautiful.
    Astrid, you are a legend!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
