Collage Obsession Challenge - Longing


This week the Collage Obsession Challenge is this beautiful starlet. The word inspiration was Longing. I think we are all longing for something. She looked like she was remembering past loves, golden moments. I used Julia's freebie background over at Cemerony for the Roman image on the left. A few lovers from the pre - Raphelites and I think the rest says it all. I enjoyed coloring the image. I have been playing with tinting lately so this was a good time to practice.

So lovely, yet so very sad. You've managed to capture both the feeling AND that wonderful "light", Elizabeth. The golden glow really does make this piece special. Hugs, Terri xoxo
