What WAS on my workdesk? Utterly shameless edition, #172

So this is what WAS
on my workdesk, and I couldn't show it before--Altered Pages is starting
up a monthly challenge, Alter Your Creativity, and the first challenge is to
create a headdress. Mine is a headdress for Mnemosyne, goddess of memory,
and mother of the nine muses--there is a medallion made from inchie images
representing each of the muses.  In the other pic at the AP blog you can see
the other side, with old movie film trailing down the back, as well.

For the utterly shameless part--if you would kindly click on this linky
HERE, and vote for me, (it's in the sidebar), then I won't be the giant goof
that no one voted for. **sigh**

It's like I'm having a teenage flashback, with those awful feelings of
UGH, everyone is going to think I'm ugly/stupid/goofy (fill in the blank
with your particular insecurity).

Where is that even coming from? Good grief!

All ranting aside, Happy WOYWW to you! As usual, I'll be around
tonight for my weekly, worldwide blog snoop with you.  Pretty sure I got
around to everyone who commented last week--will double check
that first . . . see you later!

PS--Thanks to my WOYWW friends, my headdress has some votes now,
so I can breath a huge sigh of relief!

I love how you alter things so easily Trisha, and your creativity is endless. This is an amazing headdress, reminds me of a turban in some ways. Great medallions and pearls.

What an unusual challenge ! Great fun & very thoughtfully planned ! Ali #53

trisha too said...

It is a different challenge--I think that's what they're going to try and continue to do with future challenges, is to make them different from what we usually see.

Me again.
Thanks for sharing your work space and have a great and creative end to the week. Happy WOYWW.

What Roni isn't telling you is that her headdress is AWESOME and that you will probably want to vote for her when you get there, so don't promise yourself to me prematurely!!!

I love the head dress, very creative! Good luck! Thanks for your kind comments re my knitting. Really, it looks much harder than it is. There are only two colours per row, (that is traditional fair isle), and I love playing with the different colours. Happy late WOYWW!

Lucy Edmondson said...

I love the headress Trisha, and your bit of classical imagery. I guess she must be the person we get the word mnemonic from. I love the way you have represented the muses,
