Art Creations Friday on Saturday



Yesterday I checked this week's offering over at Art Creations Friday and was delighted to spy a gorgeous background instead of the expected vintage photograph. I was brimming with ideas on how to use it, eventually settling on what you see above -- started late last night but finished just now. Please click on it to see it much larger.

Somehow the theme of the piece became reading; it features a page of text from an old school book as well as a stone statue of a mother reading to her daughter (which I photographed in a Buffalo cemetery). Also in the mix, one of my new textures that I just put up in my Flickr galleries plus, in the top right corner, a photoshop brush I created using one of the Paris photographs Leslie so generously shared with me. Not too many elements but I think the collage came together nicely.
