Three Muses: Art in the Round

Kolmen Muusan haasteen aiheena ovat ympyrät tai renkaat. Tein taas aukeaman altsukirjaani, jota olen ryhtynyt täyttämään Kolmen Muusan teemoilla. Minun renkaani ovat veden pinnalla. On hauskaa katsella järveä, kun sadepisarat putoilevat ja tekevät renkaita, tai kun kalat tulevat pintaan ja tekevät renkaita. - Kollaasini pohjalla on netistä löydettyjä kivikuvia, karppien valokuvat ovat Ludek Stechin ja piirrokset JK-in-the-Rainin (molemmat löytyivät netistä), simpukat ovat kiiltokuvia, kalvolle printatut valokuvat veden pinnasta omia valokuviani, renkaat leimasin erilaisilla pyöreillä esineillä. (Klikkaa kuvaa, niin näet sen isompana.)

The Three Muses' challenge is "Art in the Round". I made a new spread in my altered book, which I am filling with the Muses' themes. My circles are circles on the water surface. I love to watch the lake when raindrops fall and make circles, or when fish come to the surface and make circles. - The background of my collage consists of some pebbles images found from the internet, the carp photos are by Ludek Stech and the carp drawings by JK-in-the-Rain (both found from the internet), the shells are glossy die-cut images, the photos of water surface printed on transparencies are my own photos, and I stamped the circles with various round objects.

  11. This is stunning…
    I too love those ripples…
    You picture reminds me of when I was a child and how I would spend
    hours on a lazy summer afternoon just tossing pebbles into the pond to make water
    fairy rings…
