The Three Muses: Pairs

Kolmen Muusan viikon teema on "Parit", ja tämä altsukirjani aukeama on vastaus heidän haasteeseensa. Luonnossa monet eläinlajit elävät pareittain (ja niinhän me ihmisetkin ainakin yritämme tehdä...), joten valitsin aiheekseni pikkulintuparin. Linnut on leikattu servietistä, persikat kopioitu kiiltokuva-arkista. Muu osa kuvituksesta ja värityksestä on omaa aikaansaannostani, välineinä akryylimaalit, vahaliidut ja tussikynät.

The Three Muses' prompt for this week was "Oh what a peach of a pair", and this spread from my altered book is my entry for this challenge. Because English is not my mother tongue, I have a tendency to take all sayings literally, and so I just couldn't resist the temptation to put a pair of peaches in my collage besides the pair of birds, who are my main subject. - The birds are cut from a paper napkin, the peaches are a die cut, and the rest of the page I painted and drew with acrylic paints, wax oil crayons, and markers.

  10. What lovely pages for your altered book! It pleases me immensely to think the effort of 3 muses, one from the US, one from Australia, and one from the UK issue a challenge that finds it way to the pages of an altered book in Finland!! Your pages are so carefully done. What a treasure your book will be!
