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

Tell Me a Story About Birds

I started this post hours ago and I'm now getting
back to it, some 5 hours later.
I was fiddling around with my digi program
and this is what I made for the following challenges.

I saw the blackbird challenge first. Next came the Story challenge.
Right I away I thought 'blackbirds baked in a pie' that will work for both challenges.
I started with the pie then added the blackbirds. Ummmm, needs a background.
I found a parchment background with an image of a king. I altered it to sepia
because the colors were much to busy as a background. Found the verse for
Four and Twenty Blackbirds and used Fairytale font in deep red. Bordered that
with red. This was then layered on a red tapestry image of an ornate
drawing room. Then I used a gold frame. The goblet was the
finishing touch. I added shadows to all of the smaller images. I like
the depth the shadows give. Not, as fancy as some I've seen but I like it.

I've been doing mostly digi lately and I'm really missing my
rubber stamps. How about you?
I am a moderator at the I Did It Creations Forum
and I decided to have a
NON-Digi Day at the Forum
