    Crowns are a regular feature in art journal layouts. I mean, who doesn’t want to be Queen for a day?

    Welcome to Week 2 of the November 2021 Monthly Muse.
    This week we’ll keep it simple by using a paper crown and one of the following fill-in-the-blank phrases:

    “Queen of _______”​

    or
    “Queen of the __________ “
    or
    “_________ Queen”


    Your phrase can be anything. A few ideas include:
    - Queen of the sofa.
    - Queen bee.
    - Queen of the house.
    - Drama Queen.
    - Beauty Queen.
    - Queen of the cookie jar.
    - Queen of Dancing or Dancing Queen.
    - Queen of England. Okay, maybe not that one. But I think you get the idea.

    Paper crowns – chances are, you have one in your TLP digital stash. You may use a sticker. If you use a brush, be sure to cut it out so that it looks like a paper crown.

    If you do not have a paper crown in your stash – no worries! These are easy to make; all it takes is one rectangle and three or more triangles. Or, get creative with banners.

    Paper crown made in photoshop using 1 rectangle shape + 3 triangles. Shapes merged, then papers clipped to crown:

    Kits used: Lynn Grieveson Be Kind and Just Jaimee Storyteller Dec 2016.

    And, my final layout: Queen of the Wild Things (should probably rename to Queen of Volia App :giggle).

    I used Voila app. Which is highly addicting. You can take a new photo or use and old one. There are several categories to choose from…but each makes a cartoon-ish image of a face. Learned the hard way, does not work on pets :giggle
