The Three Muses Challenge " Fish "





The theme this week over at thethreemuseschallenge.blogspot.com   .................. is fish.
As usual for me another slippery  (excuse the pun ) subject, my little brain was teeming ( groan) with ideas. Took a while to get going but once I started I ended up with a whole shoal .....( more puns)of them.

I couldn't decide which I liked the best so I enlisted the help of my husband and my youngest son who both gave me differing opinions. I even showed them to Bailey and Rosy ( the dogs ) in a desperate attempt to get a majority vote , but no I'm in their bad books due to too much blogging and not enough cuddling !

I did in the end what I normally do under these circumstances ignored everyone and uploaded two of them .
Maybe you can help me ..............






I used these beautiful Japanese images that I printed onto acetate and placed underneath some lovely embossed thick gold paper, the first image I backed onto black card stock and as you can see the second one I framed.

Hope you like them.

  21. Ahhh, they are both MAGNIFICENT and I'm so glad you showed us both! If I have to choose I choose the first probably because mounting it on black just tipped the scales (ooooops a pun)!
