Digital Collage - The Whisperer


This morning I awoke at dawn to go riding at a friend's farm. They raise all sort of unusual animals beside the normal farm yard types. It was cloudy and cool and the ride was the best I have had in a long time. The horses could feel the rain in the air and decided to have as much fun as possible before spending a day or two in the barn.


When I got home and showered I decided to make a digital collage for my friend's sister in law. She stayed home and did chores and had a very hearty breakfast waiting for us when we returned. This is what I came up with. She tends almost all of the family pets, chickens, horses, and exotics. She has such a tender way about her. The animals all adore her.

I used two or three texture layers, the zebra is from an old print, the woman is an image a friend from one of the flickr groups gave me, the script is from the Graphics Fairy. I just played with Photo Shop till I was happy. I hope you enjoy!

When we were studying African animals in Kindy last year, we found out that the animal in your collage is actually half zebra, half horse, and they called it a quagga. Wendy xx
