Think Monday Think ATC: Homophones


This week's theme on TMTA is Homophones - words that sound the same but have different meanings. It seems I'm in a silly mood today, so I've chosen the words Mynah and miner. I think the helmet suits him!
The background is collaged bits and pieces with texturising medium painted through sequin mesh at the corners. I painted over the whole lot with gesso then inked it and added a bit of Radiant Rain Spray in a couple of places and a bit of Stickles at the corners. I then added my image, which is three separate images pieced together, and the words which I printed out and inked around the edges.

Great ATC Sian, your background is superb (like usual:o))
What though, is a minah, is it a kind of bird?

Sian said...

Yep, it's a bird: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mynah_bird (It seems I've used the less common spelling of it though). My pic is of a Jungle Mynah.
