Challenge THREE MUSES "Long ago and far away"

Challenge 21 van The Three Muses sprak me direct aan. Eerst wilde ik een kaart maken over mijn geboortestreek (Monté Alegre, Brazilië), maar toen bedacht ik dat ik ook nog een stempel heb liggen van een "ossewa". Ongebruikt! LOL. Op de kaart o.a. de streek waar ik vanaf mijn 9de heb gewoond, dichtbij Krugersdorp, en ja, deze geschiedenis (die Groot Trek) heb ik op school gehad. Zuid Afrika zit in mijn bloed.
Challenge 21 on the Three Muses is "Long ago and far away". I first wanted to make something about the area where I was born (Monté Alegre, Brazil), but then I thought of the stamp I bought in South Africa last year, the "ossewa", unused! LOL. On the map the area where I lived from my 9th year, nearby Krugersdorp. The history of the Groot Trek was part of the history lessons at school.  I've got South-Africa in my blood.

  1. What a perfect entry for the challenge,--both long ago AND far away! Beautifully done, and thanks for sharing a bit about your personal history! We're glad you joined in our challenge!

  2. Ellie this is thoughtful, and wonderful, and I'm so pleased you shared this with the Three Muses. Thank you so much for joining in.

  3. I loved reading your story, Ellie, and your artwork is elegant and beautifully crafted. Believe it or not, 12,000 miles away in Australia, we learned about the Great Trek at school. It is a story which fascinated me - one of great hardship and wonderful pioneers.
