Take a Word Challenge: "Home"


please click on image for larger view


For the house in this digital collage, I used a picture from a book of black and white Baltimore rowhouse drawings by J.S. Fuqua. I then filled the house image with some of the Photoshop Elements patterns I've created from my own original paper and digital artwork, and applied other PSE touches. To make the house truly a home to me, I added a menorah in the window, representing Hanukkah, which starts Wednesday evening December 1.
