TAKE A WORD 26 - MEMORIES


Another week and another word, and this week Marie has chosen MEMORIES as our word for inspiration.

This one had me stumped for a while but then I thought of using a quote ...... and here is what happened next!

Credit to Finecrafted Designs for her Inner Voice kit.  I used several different backgrounds which I layered and blended to get this dreamlike backdrop.  Likewise the 'dreamer' was duplicated, layered and blended to create a more insubstantial being.  Font used : giddyup std.

Thank you for a good word Marie, and thank you all for looking.

A great quote and a beautiful artpiece, Ann. I hope everyone takes the time to enlarge it so as to enjoy all the fine details. I have to admit that I didn't notice the reclining body at first glance. Wonderful work.

Despite the background so clear and bright, we have this feeling of helplessness by looking the image. Brilliant artwork.

I'm completely swept away by the words, and I'm off to explore Ella Wheeler Wilcox! The piece is beautifully illustrated by your art, which is superb! One of your best!

I find this creation so ethereal and surreal, and that is extremely difficult to achieve. You have such a special talent and I admire your work so. Great quote, also and a wonderful jumping off point. FASCINATING!

The collage is perfect for the quote you chose. I bought that kit, too, but haven't done anything real exciting with it. The women in it are so neat! I love the way you used this one.

Very soft and lovely, and the quote adds such a wonderful touch to the piece. So nicely done! xo
