Three Muses - Up, Up and Away

I love this challenge site...and this is a wonderful theme. Hot air balloons are gorgeous...I found a lovely one at Digital Collage Sheets. Using Delta and Golden paints and inks, I did a lot of dabbing and misting, and more dabbing on the background. And here is my 4x4 "Fly". Thanks for looking.

Lynn, this is stunning. I love everything about it. I am a bit behind with my comments and I happened on it by accident as no doubt you posted it while waiting for the challenge to be opened. (We three have time problems. It is Tuesday night here in Australia, early morning in the US and middle of the day in England).
Thanks so much for taking part in this week's challenge, especially with such a wonderful picture.

This is beutiful Lynn. Love how it looks like you've put netting over the balloon.
Thanks for the comment on my hat. Unfortunately there is no contest for the hat, only my shooting and I haven't practiced so that probibly won't be prize worthy.

I love the components of your "Fly" entry. The map and the aviator are a perfect foil for the balloon. I also like the soft colors. Beautifully done!
