Art Creations Friday - Dreaming

Dreaming

This week the Art Creations Friday Challenge was the beautiful image of the girl in the straw hat. The first thing I did was use photo shop to color her all up. A pink gown with a yellow scarf, some lovely flowers in her hair. I then use the texture background from a few weeks ago they had given us along with some text, another texture background of my own, and a tree photograph I had taken.

She looks like she is off on a nice walk in the woods, followed up with a picnic and an afternoon with her special someone. Laying on a blanket looking up at the sun dappled trees. Enjoy this wonderful weather.

What a beautiful rendition. You've got some talent. I bet you can do more for spice racks and the kitchen scenery.
