ARTastic - Sweet

Hi Ladies!

This month  ARTastic is featuring  this delightful work by Roy de Maistre called Frozen Music.

The Criteria is to use Swirls on your entry :) 

For my example titled 'SWEET', I used the swirls and the yellow/gold colors.
This page was a UFO (unfinished Object), it was a workshop at 'A Scrappe Tiger Retreat' last year that I never completed. I had completed the background and stencilled wings (modelling paste and gold paint) but I had not embellished or added a photo!

I added small clear flourish swirls and painted each little stone black to fit with my black and white photo, I love the Swirl in the title and how the wings fan out like swirly waves.

Here is a close up
This is my mum as a little girl.

 Thanks for a wonderful challenge ARTastic, so glad I got a chance to get this piece finished.

There is still plenty of time to join in the challenge this month! 
Jane and the Creative team would love to see your entry!
