I have only taken part a couple of times before, as I wasn't around for some of them, but I really do enjoy Mary's challenges to combine elements from 3 totally different images into one collage. They are never easy, lol, especially for somebody as digitally challenged as me. I had to enlist my son's help with a couple of steps.
These are the images Mary provided this month -
Not all that easy, right? But I knew pretty much what I wanted to achieve.
First, I separated the three images. Then I messed around with the colours on the first one to get a sepia like colour for the sweet lady. I cut out her name, Mo, and the word Company from the second image and cleaned them up. Then I got my son to help me with getting the floral pattern of the third image onto her outfit, just in one place, because Victorian styles often mixed plains with patterns in an outfit. I then placed the words, put a thin border round the whole lot, and there you go, challenge completed! I am so tempted to print it out and add lots of glitter to the snow, lol, with my trusted GellyRoll pen, would look neat, don't you think? Anyhoo, here is the completed challenge -
I am happy with it.
It was a lovely sunny day here today, but bitterly cold. Still, that doesn't put dedicated geocachers off, so Nick and I spent a few hours hunting down a few caches. Most of them were off public footpaths, which meant that for most of the time we were ankle deep in mud, lol. Hah, I was prepared though, I was wearing my lovely flowery wellies ( children's ones, lol, they fit me so much better, I have small feet ). I couldn't believe how waterlogged the ground was everywhere. Well, I could, actually, because we have had so much rain lately. I hope that we will a bit more sunshine over the next couple of days.
All that fresh air, however, means that I am totally wiped out lol, and about to toddle off to bed. I wish you all a good day/night wherever you are,
