Ann asked us for stripes and I probably got a bit carried away. We have a challenging challenge at Digitalmania (Flickr) where we learn a lot of new tricks, taking inspiration from the work of artists in many different styles. This past week it was cutting and pasting a la Carmen Casanova, a Spanish artist. I made a patchwork design and cut the lady's dress from it. Her skin tones include a page from an old dictionary of mine. All papers, including sky, grass and patchwork were Googled. The trees and the bow are by Createwings Designs. The stitching is a Photoshop brush as are the white flowers. Cloud by me!!

Thanks to Yvonne for a great theme and for providing the inspiration for our wrinkly pieces. The little bird lady has been in my folders for years. The picture was very small, unclear and black and white but I have attacked it with all manner of filters and lighting to achieve a sharper look and some golden colours. The background is by Lorie Davison at Scrapbookgraphics.

The altered Mona Lisa was painted by me for an earlier challenge. The lady artiste with brush was originally a sepia image from e-vint.com but I have overpainted her in ArtRage. The floor and background are by Irene Alexeeva and the paint can and tubes and easel were Googled.
