TAKE A WORD
ON REFLECTION .. A HAPPY ACCIDENT
We have FEATHERED FRIENDS as our word for inspiration this week at TAKE A WORD. When I began to think about what direction I would take this I thought about combining text and birds which I tried several times without success. Not wanting to start again totally I added and blended layers one at a time until the collage began to take shape. I kept the original text layer (a copy of the Magna Carta to be precise) and softened it, then added a photo of tree branches reflected in a puddle of water I had taken a year or two ago (I knew that photo was a keeper) ... and that's when it began to take shape. One or two more layers and a change or two to the birds and I was happy!!!
Credit : the birds and the text and several of the layers were all free to use, whilst the remainder were from my own stock.
Thank you for looking.
