This week at the Muses the theme is THE PRINTED WORD. I Googled a black and white photo, converted it into a Photoshop brush and placed it over a chopped up dictionary page I made. Water colour paint was added.
I have used the well known image of my Uncle Paul (by marriage) for this picture (colour and alterations added). The piano was Googled. As far as I know Uncle Paul didn't play the piano but IF HE DID he would have been his own best audience as superiority was his middle name,
This week at Take a Word the theme is NUMBERS. I made the numbered background. The identical twins are from e-vint.com (no longer selling). Image extracted from black and white photo and coloured a little.
This week at Take a Word the theme is FLORAL. The image is from my huge collection from the now defunct website e-vint.com. (Image coloured from original black and white and re-dressed, collage style). Background Rosey Posey formerly of Scrapbook Graphics.
This week at Digital Whisper the theme is FALLING LEAVES. The image is from e-vint.com (coloured and altered). This website no longer exists. The autumn leaf was Googled and the background is from Rosey Posey formerly of Scrapbookgraphics.
This week at the Three Muses the challenge theme is STEAMPUNK. The painting of Adam and Eve is from Wikimedia Commons (altered and more tastefully dressed). Background Lorie Davison. Steampunkerie from Marta van Eck.
This week at Digital Whisper the theme is PARIS. I have chosen to create a colorful poster using a Toulouse Lautrec picture from one of his posters. The background is by me and I have used several different fonts to highlight the things to see when visiting Paris.
This week at Take a Word the theme is HEART. I have made a collaged paper doll using bits and pieces and the red heart painted by me. Tumbling playing card pieces from Irene Alexeeva no longer designing.
This week at Take a Word the theme is OLD FASHIONED. I found this image in Google Images and coloured it from its original sepia. The flowers, background and planter are from a collection by Lauren Bavin.
I found the original black and white image at Graphics Fairy, added colour and placed him on a scanned dictionary page. I called him "Jerry Poppins" because he is in the same pose that Mary Poppins is often seen in.
This week at the Muses the challenge theme is QUOTES. I have chosen "Expect the Unexpected" although I seem to be a person who always expects the worst! Background from Lorie Davison, image Finecrafted Designs, balloons Googled..
This week at the Muses the theme is FOOTWEAR. I have chosen sneakers. The image is from a family album. It was extracted from a wedding photo of my uncle (by marriage) and aunt. He has appeared in quite a few of my pictures and in many different guises. The background is from Itkupilli.
This week at Take a Word the theme is SEA CREATURES. The mermaid is my own design. I painted the face, Googled the turquoise shells to make her hat and cut her costume from the Googled Tail. Background from Lorie Davison at Scrapbookgraphics/
