Three Muses: Grunge/ Print Background

The Three Muses have challenged us this week to create a "grungy" collage with a print background. For my digital collage, I altered and combined various elements to create this face. I used digital brushes (Obsidian Dawn) for the eyes, hair, and splatters/spills; a nose and mouth from SJD; text background from flickr (Norma Frances) ; and background paper from Holliewood Studios. Challenging but fun!

Very beautiful, Sherry. Her eyes and eyebrows reminded me of a Brazilian writer, Clarice Lispector.
