Take a Word: Angel

Please click for larger view


I was on my iPad when I saw this week's challenge theme, which prompted me to use a drawing app to try to create a piece for the theme. After I drew the angel, I embellished her in Photoshop Elements with more color and my own drawn/painted patterns, and added a background adapted from my own design. Time-consuming, but such fun on a gray and rainy Saturday!

(Sorry for the multiple postings for this piece.Operator error!)

Collage Obsession: Smile


I love the soft smile on this woman's face. Her image is adapted from a Moonlight Magic Studio image.  The flowers are from a photo of mine.
