Mona in the Bastille

BastilleThis is a journal page in response to Mixed Media Monday's word prompt. I altered a picture of the Mona Lisa in a calendar journal. My first thought was to put her behind a brick wall -- but I've done a lot of molding paste brick walls already, so I wondered if I could simulate a stone wall. The thesaurus listed bastille as an alternative word for imprisonment, so thus the word Bastille.

I'm feeling a bit trapped by my workload lately -- being carless isn't helping either LOL

Your Mona is just amazing! Great texture, so nicely done! I have been getting caught up in some of the different challenges out there, almost one (sometimes 2) for each day of the week. I had not yet tried the mixed media challenge. It looks like a fun one too! Your artwork is always special.
