Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Vintage Playmates

I made this for the following challenges
Anything Goes
Image of boy provided
Image Provided

I started with the image of the boy. Next, I cropped the girl from
the image that Peggy gave us for Fri Foto Collage and altered the
color. She was added to the boy image. I then went thru
different backgrounds trying them out for style and color.
I finally settled on the diamond and swirl pattern.
The smaller panel was layered and the color matched
to the browns in the background. It still needed something.
I went thru lots of images and came of the with dog. I like
how he has his front paws on the boy. He wants to play, hence,
the title Playmates. I added a bright red ball for the toy.

Have a wonderful Monday.
I'm off to run some errands before
it gets way to hot out.
It is just 7 a.m. already it is in the 80s.
