I haven't entered a Southern Girls Challenge since I left the DT and I miss the girls. So I was determined to enter the next challenge and boy is it a bit of a toughie. White on white. End result very hard to photograph properly, an exercise in frustration, essp on a very overcast day here. (what is that all about? it's Australia day - it's supposed to be stinking hot not sort of mild!!)
I thought a black and white photo would work best and Meaghan had taken this stunning (I think anyway) photo of her cousin Emma. I haven't cropped it at all, she is a natural photographer (am I biased? probably!).
I used a woodgrain mask and gesso to create the textured background and layered on the lace and flowers. The gesso does make the cardstock buckle a bit but love the look. And I am a bit pleased with the way it turned out!
Oh the look on Emma's face, while it looks deep and meaningful is actually the glazed look of a child playing Mario cart on the Wii...
Have a great Australia Day. We are off to friends tonight for a barbie, kids will swim but too cold for the more sensible (boring) adults. xxx
