We all think, at some time, that we have nothing to wear. Well, Muriel really didn't have anything to wear. I had some fun with dressing a lady who was (ahem) au naturel. I added some sliced up pieces of netting from Lorie Davison at Scrapbookgraphics. The background and elements are from Creativewing Designs.

This was a challenge for me! I began with a black and white image from e-Vint collages, coloured her and added a pencil hat and pencil skirt. Then, I couldn't help myself for adding a pun. 2B or not 2B - that is the question! The little cherub is from Lorie Davison at SBG (seen with his notebook and pencil) and the background, swirls on the hat and stitching are from Creativewing Designs. The pencils (two separate pictures) were found on Google Images.

Hold on to your hats everyone. I actually altered the dancer without resorting to digital. I chose two black and white images from e-Vint collage sheets, taking the head from one and the body from another. I used Prima Colors, Copic pens and a Uniball white pen. The Prima Colors and Copic pens don't cover darker shades so if anyone has advice on what to use I would be grateful for it.

This is a true story and anyone who knows me knows that I don't tell fibs!
This is a difficult tale to tell. For many years MY FAVOURITE HOBBY WAS PART TIME MODELLING, mainly for magazines. I was lucky to find a niche in the "mature woman" market and was often called on to pose for covers and catalogues. This is one of my best covers, circa 1984. Fortunately, the newly established Photoshop software allowed 5 ft nothing, stocky, dark haired women to aspire to be slender, tall, blonde sirens!
I am now waiting for a niche in the "more mature woman" market for seniors. Hopefully I will be able to take up my hobby again although if it takes much longer I will be waiting for a niche in the "Ancient Treasures" category.
The image is a Flickr-free-to-use from Mrs Inman. (Coloured from black and white). The background and overlay is by Lauren Bavin.

I found this great photo in an e-Vint collage sheet. To me it appears that the gals are looking for insects in their under garments and a story formed from there. The newspaper clipping has a headline "Defiant students protest and stir up a political ant nest" (hence the ants).
I have altered the photo somewhat by adding colour. Two papers were used in the background - one from Maya and one from Berna Datema, both of Scrapbookgraphics.

The face (altered) is from Art-e-zine. The cat is by Irene Alexeeva. The lady is made from paper cutouts and some painting. The outer frame is by Lorie Davison.
