Striving To Find Calm In The Midst Of Chaos

Striving To Find Calm Midst Of Chaos

This piece was done for Three Muse's weekly challenge. The theme this week was "reflection", we were to find a word that would have special meaning to us in 2017.

I settled on CALM as this is a challenge for me. I get caught up in world affairs, being the newsy that I am, add to that the constant strain of social media and the general stuff that happens in daily life...well it can be very difficult to find a place to just slow down, take a breath and find center. 

I'll be trying to find a place of calm both within my own head and within my surroundings.

He's Gonna Find Out Who's Naughty or Nice

 
He's making a list,

He's checking it twice,


He's gonna find out who's naughty or nice,


Santa Claus is coming to town.

 
He sees you when you're sleeping,

He knows when you're awake,

He knows when you've been bad or good,

So be good for goodness sake!

Spanish Lace

 
SPANISH LACE
 
Our challenge this week over at Three Muses was LACE.
I found this beautiful image of a woman on Pixaby.com and immediately thought of a
Flamenco dancer.
 
 She was a perfect match for the lace elements found in Espanola Collection by Viva Artistry.
 
Speaking of lace I found these amazing lace cookies on Facebook.
I would dare not eat them, they are just too beautiful!
 
 These gorgeous cookies are the work of Las Tartas de Loreta-Burgos

A Girl's Got To Do What A Girl's Got To Do

A Girl's Got To Do What A Girl's Got To Do!
 
I used this page from my art journal for this week's Three Muses Challenge - Zetti.
 
The term "Zetti" is difficult to nail down. Simply put it is a style of collaging using contrasting colors, textures, black and white areas, black and white dots, crowns, wings and
mismatched body parts.
