You only live once make it count miro inspired shrine (alter it monthly challenge) & Google art project



"Miro was among the first artists to develop automatic drawing as a way to undo previous established techniques in painting..represented the beginning of surrealism"

Ballerina II by Miro (1893-1983)

Over at UK Stampers the quote challenge this week is "you only live once make it count". I have incorporated this quote in a Miro influenced shrine tag. The painting I was looking at was Ballerina II by Miro and I love the simple colours and use of line on it...be sure to check out the Miro prompts over at Milliande. The challenge over at Alter it monthly is shrines so I have used some of my invoke stamps underneath a shrine I made out of clay the other week.

Google have launched an Art Project site this week which allows you to view art in galleries all over the world..so click on the coloured words to check that out.

welcome back Lorrain. I love your tag. the Miro influence is very strong and the addition of the shrine in the corner seems to go very well with the miro background. Thank you so much for joining us again :)

Great tag shrine, or is it shrine tag?!

I didn't know about Miro so I find that really interesting.
