Three Muses: Keys



I've been waiting for a chance to use a stunningly colored textured background from rubyblossom (flickr creative commons), who is one of my favorite (free!) sources for digital images. I've altered it here with filters and other effects. I also used a stone background image from a personal photo; and keys by soartful, sherriejd, and milla.
