Oh wow! This is just exquisite. I am so happy Bev found you and passed your website address on to her friends. It's a big world out there in Blogland. Your use of colour is quite unique and so beautifully done. We bloggers are always looking for something new and exciting and, my goodness, we have found it in you. Once you start entering a challenge or two, you will be overrun by comments!

I'm sorry for the confusion but we have been slowly building the new challenge website and, thinking it was hidden, I typed in a prompt for the sneak peek which will be the section that gives the theme for the next week following a challenge. (I have now taken it off until next week).
Ann (Taluula) has been responsible for the design and a lot of the hard work so we voted her in to host the first challenge and she has chosen "Mona Lisa". Doors will come the week after that. So sorry to confuse you but just keep your SCRUMPTIOUS doors picture on your blog and visit the challenge website the following week and leave a link so everyone can see it.
In the meantime, I do hope you can manage an altered Mona! That challenge will open next Wednesday.

Ozstuff and Turnip head - thanks for the kind words.
Ozstuff, I will look into playing with Mona on the current theme for Three Muses.
Turnip head, I had a peek at your site and you do great things with fabric - something that is totally beyond me!

Debbie -- Sorry for the confusion, but your "Doors" is superb, and will be a most welcome addition to next Wednesday's challenge. I've been a "blurker" (blog lurker) at your site for a while, enjoying what you do. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Indybev, thanks for feedback on this piece. I am working on a Mona submission for the challenge over at Three Muses this week.
Never heard the term "blurker" before. I must admit to being one myself on many sites.

Taluula said...

Debbie this is so amazingly beautiful. I have just found your blog via our Three Muses site and your work is just wonderful. I shall visit often.

Stacy said...

Well, lucky me - I didn't have long to wait - just scrolled down to see your doors! I am using my tiny computer right now so I did not see it right away. What a feast of color! This is fabulous! I scrolled down further to see more of your work - it is all amazing! You are a true artist (unlike a dabbler, like myself). I look forward to coming back to your site for a real good look with my 25 inch monitor.

Taluula, thanks for visiting and for providing great challenges via Three Muses.
Stacy, viewed your blog and love what you've done with Mona! Who knew she was hiding that bod under such drab garments. Now we all know what the enigmatic smile is about!

Taluula said...

Thanks Debbie for your lovely comments about my blog.

This is absolutely wonderful! The coloration is incredible.

Wow! How could one get pass her to the door... Fantastic work!

Ozstuff said...

I have already commented on your most beautiful doors picture but I just wanted you to know I am visiting your scrumptious blog again and I am so glad that you linked your "Door" into this week's challenge. Awesome, superb, stunning .... I am running out of superlatives!

I love the color contrast with the sternness of the old woman. Very cool.
