Three Muses Challenge - Dreams




This week for The Three Muses Challenge the theme is Dreams. I have always loved this painting by Leighton and thought I would use some of the fairy images I have been collecting. It is so dark here from the storm that the street lights are on. It is raining hard. I just want to crawl up on a soft comfy place and dream. We should all have a little fairly princess watching over us while we sleep.

I thought at first the painting was a Waterhouse. She looks very like his favorite model. At any rate, it's SO lovely and perfect for the challenge, and I've been introduced to an artist of which I wasn't aware. Thank you! And thanks for joining in our challenge this week.

That's a line from my favourite song.. sweet dreams til sunbeams find you.....
I love that picture - I have it on the banner of my blog - a bit of it anyway.
You've got some gorgeous journal pages on your other posts - anyone reading this that has missed them should go take a look. Loving the layers!

The orange in this dream page is absolutely mouth-watering. It's such a strong color, yet the over-all effect is that of serenity. APPLAUSE!
