Card Image Edited From Christmas to Fall


Hello!

On Friday I posted about a card I was editing - turning a Christmas image into a Fall image with a few little changes. I have used one of Sassy Cheryl's digital images called "Sally and Her Birds" - (above) a sweet little girl sitting on a Christmas present talking to her birds, with snow flakes falling all around them. After cutting out the entire image - I used paper painting (paper piecing) to turn the present she is sitting on into a bench. I cut out leaves from another Cheryl's digital image called "Sally and Her Autumn Leaves" to replace the snow flakes and paper painted them in fall colors, made the birds red Cardinals and the ground green. When all of the individually cut out image pieces were glued to a blue sky paper background - it became an entirely different image! :<) I love cutting paper!




Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog! I am going to play catch-up today in returning visits and comments - I love it so much when you come to visit me and leave your kind words that I try to return each one! Know that even if I am late - I will be by to see what you are creating! Wishing you a great Monday!
