Three Muses Challenge - Postage Art




Woohoo my first challenge piece in ages. This little holiday postcard is winging its way to you with good wishes from New Zealand for Bev's great challenge theme of Postage Art at the Three Muses.

Credit to Pixel Music for the postcard and postage backgrounds. The On This Day stamp is tagged BVA LYA Wornseals Special, so if anyone can put me right on who I should credit I would be most grateful. The two blended beach photographs are my own.

Thanks so much for looking.

Oooo, very posh, Ann. Not only your own photo which is so beautifully altered but reminding all of us poor slaves at home that you are mooching around the golden beaches of NZ!! It is such a pleasure to see your first artpiece from the Land of the Long White Cloud. Absolutely gorgeous. Take a bow.

Ohhhh, it's STUNNING, Ann! I'm longing for warm, sunny beaches, but instead, I'm looking out of my window at 12" of fresh snow (and it's still coming down!). Enjoy your vacation! Hugs, Terri xoxo

This is magical. I don't know how you managed to create the effect, but this scene seems to almost be in motion, as if it is fading in and out of the imagination, like Brigadoon. Maybe, if I try very hard, I can wish myself into the landscape!
