The theme for the challenge at Three Muses this week is round - what a great theme! Perhaps a day late and a dollar short but I brainstormed with pencil and paper and came up with an idea over lunch at work today. After settling on one particular idea I was able to visualize the piece. It is always exciting to be able to picture something in your mind before starting as well as to give yourself the freedom to change the piece as you work on it. Things don’t always turn out as planned but often they turn out better. If not you can always change tack and try something else. Remember that nothing is cast in stone. The clipart is from Dover Publications and the background started out as a vintage book page from Stampington which was then altered using multiple filters. This is a digital piece created using Gimp photo editing software which is open source software and comparable to Photoshop. This is also my first challenge piece from the MacBook that my wonderful kids gave me for my birthday to replace the 8 year old G4. What a surprise indeed!
