Fishy News!

Well, fish did get wrapped up in newspaper at one time and you can still get terrific fish and chips wrapped in newspaper, they are the best!  The Three Muses challenge this week is NEWSPAPER.

  I was playing with Lumiere paints on newspaper and then used  black soot distress ink to stamp the great fishprint image from Scrollswork and a couple of SU stamps.  I glued it onto a piece of music background, added some faux stitching and highlighted with the white pen.

This was fun, it certainly brightens up the news!  Hope all of your news today is good news - Cheers!


  1. Great collage and yes to the fish and chips.

  2. It's GORGEOUS, Rhonda. Love the technique. Gives a really rich look. Must try. xoDonna from Mexico

  3. What a great way to go!!!! Your use of Lumieres is really spot on, and the reference to fish being wrapped in newspaper (yummy!!!) never occurred to anyone but you in this challenge, making your work extra unique in my book. Love the fish stamp. reminds me of actual fish PRINTS made using freshly caught but dead fish along with print inks to make one of a kind prints in color or black and white. I once was lucky enough to visit a whole exhibit of such prints one time, and I have to say, I prefer the work you show here even more than what I saw there.
    And that's FAUX stitching???? you sure had me fooled!
    Don't forget the malt vinegar!

  4. Hi Rhonda! looks like fun. Wonderful creations. See you soon.

  5. What a fantastic take on the challenge..

  6. Great piece Rhonda. I love that fish. and I love chips.hugs..Donna

  7. There's nothing like the smell of fish and chips wrapped in newspaper (though we aren't allowed to do it here in the UK anymore .... shame).

    Rhonda, you have created a beautiful and unique interpretation on this week's theme. Bravo.

  8. Top class take on the newspaper theme, Rhonda, love your colours and details!
