I have had this image of my niece since last year. I have been saving it for something special. The look on her face speaks volumes.
At first I thought about printing it on fabric and then painting over the background. I also wanted to add fairy wings to go with the wand and a crystal ball.
My inspiration kicked into high gear today and I spent the day manipulating this photo, the old fashioned way........no photoshop was used at all.

This is the original image
I printed the original image, then cut out my niece, taped the butterfly wings to her back, then taped on the crystal ball. All done manually w/ scissors & tape. No computer enhancement was used. I have photoshop......and maybe I will have the time to learn to use it in my next life!
I raise flowers and enjoy photographing them. I enlarged this pansy image to 8x10 and printed it out.
I printed it out 8x10.
I placed the taped image on top of the sunflower.
The yellow background really works.
Here they are printed onto fabric w/words added at the bottom:
All 3 images are on cloth and ready for borders and quilting. It will be fun to stitch each one differently and see how they turn out. I will post the completed quilts when they are done.
