Ragamuffin Gal

".. from my ragged heart to yours"

June 17, 2010

* R * I * S * E *

Saw this quote in our Library's Gift Shop
And I loved it so much that I decided to
create something Artful for it.

I used the the part of my book that I cut out for my book shrine.
Then I got out my scrap pieces of vintage lace and ribbon.
The top hat gal I made from pieces from various collage
sheets that I combined together in Photoshop.

Here is the full image picture:

I have been having so much fun learning photoshop
this summer. This image was made from a Land of Enchantment
background, a body from Lisa's collage sheet, legs from Gaby,
 top hat from Cemerony, and face from my own personal vintage image file.
  Please feel free to use it in your personal creations!

Katie, I happened upon your blog via the Where Bloggers Create list. I've been peeking around and just love what I see! I snagged that gorgeous image you created with Photoshop and just loved, loved, loved that quote on Rise. How eloquently stated and oh, so true! I'll be back to snoop some more! Xo, Sue
