TGIF is really a joke to me now since my retirement. Lorne
and I can never remember what day of the week it is. We just
have one happy day of retirement after another.
Yes, I'm very spoiled.
It took me a few days to think of something for this collage.
A lot of the original image is missing (see it here). What I did was
take the image and duplicate it a couple of times. Then I cropped out
the parts of the pics that I wanted to use. I found the arch which I thought
framed the ladies very nicely...then added back the title. Next came the
background. Uhm, it still needs something. The bird and leaves are
just the thing to finish this piece.
I wish our skies were as pretty and sunny as in the picture.
Chilly and gray here. I did have a fat mama Cardinal stop by
my front porch rail yesterday and we are hearing the hooty hooty
of the doves now. Maybe warm is not to far away.
The background started with a base paper of lovely
pastel shamrocks and horseshoes. I know horseshoes aren't really pretty.
I added the rainbow which is cropped from a larger paper.
The sentiment that I used was originally black which I changed
a blend of purple to green. I have tons of fibers so it really wasn't a
problem finding something that worked.
I like this background paper so much that I've used it again
on the challenge for Robyns Fetish tomorrow.
I'll be posting the new Soartful Challenge tomorrow also.
Tomorrow is also the Soartful participant drawing for the
person to win stamps from the wonderful Scrolls Work, our
sponsor for February. I'll also be introducing March's sponsor.
Everyone is always welcome at Soartful Challenges.
