"Take a Word" Challenge: Music



I've been experimenting recently with composing images of women to use in my collages. I've combined bits of digital images (hands, feet, faces, etc) from different sources, and added some of my own art, designs, and effects. The lady pictured here is one of the first I created, and she absolutely insisted on being part of my "music" collage. So here she is, ready to dance on New Year's Eve!

Your lady is really pretty, and her dress is fantastic! She looks so great on that blue background.

I love the ruffled skirt! It looks like icing. I'm making a gingerbread house with Ryan today, and icing is a current event.

I love the way you peiced together your dancing gal. I never would have know the feet, hands, etc were from all over. Nicely done. And those sheet music stars are a great touch!

Sherri, this is what I love doing the most - taking parts from every which way and putting them together to make a person. I love the overlay of petals you have used to make the skirt. The whole effect of your card is elegant and GORGEOUS.
I hope 2011 will be a peaceful and happy one for you and your family.

I am ofcourse terribly late. But to my defense I did visit Dolly almost every day.

I love the lady you made and the whole picture is so vibrant. Just love it.

Give Dolly a hug from me please!
