Take a Word "Time"

As many of you will have noticed, there is a new challenge blog run by the clever ladies of the Three Muses.
Every week they will give us a challenge to create something with a word prompt. This week is it is "Time"

Time is something I never seem to have enough of (like many people I'm guessing). I decided to create a tribute to the Goddess of Time, asking her to grant me more. The piece did not work out at all how I had wanted it, but at least I had fun painting...

  4. I love it when you venture into painting, Astrid. Heaven knows we all need The Goddess of Time to be benevolent. Yours looks as if she might be! Well done!

  5. I think it's a lovely painting Astrid...but of course if you are like me...never satified...the picture on my paper is never as good as the one in my head...I digress...this is a wonderful representation of that ever demanding Goddess of Time...well done!

  8. Oh No!! Terri pinched MY word (exquisite) and I am left floundering for another one to express my reaction to your most beautiful picture. The textural hair alone made me gasp in wonder!! Astrid, I can't tell you how wonderful it is to have you as a contributor to this little challenge. Thanks so much for joining in. Wow.

  22. Astrid, I love the idea of a Goddess of Time, couldn't we all do with one! I love your layering and painting and think she is quite a majestic Goddess. Bravo.

    Oh, by the way, I saw the grumpy Mona on Grannie Annie's blog and was so taken with it I asked if I might use it and she said yes.

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!
