Take a Word: Exposed



This theme was a real challenge for me at first. I spent quite a while poring over my "library" of images. Then I remembered a site I'd recently discovered called magazineart.com, where images of vintage magazines are posted (for viewers' personal use, I presume). Here I combined the face and body from two different "Theatre Magazine" covers to get the desired effect. The mask is from njj4 (flickr creative commons). The final serendipitous effect was a  spotlight filter from Photoshop Elements.

Great idea Sherry which fits the theme perfectly. There were so many variations you could choose this week - apart from the obvious! It was fun.

Fantastic take on "exposed!" We all hide behind masks at one time or another. Great new header, too!
