February Challenge

Mary has us busy once again for a FABULOUS prize. This month's images included a portrait, a botanical illustration and a victorian scrap. I actually figured out I COULD take the images out of the .pdf format (I know, I know you who have figured it already are probably shaking your head). Instead of doing a gluebook page (which I usually do) I decided to take a different approach. I experimented with the photo using Paint Shop (learned a lot). I also played with inks and chalks which you probably can't see but helped with the colours. I think the background card I used is from a memoral service (for a funeral?) - don't remember where I got it from (probably from Beth).Anywho, something different! Cheers. Jewels

  1. This is lovely, Jewels. You are very clever, I wouldn't know where to start with all that PS stuff. Lovely effect you've achieved with the photo.
