Editing An Image


Sometimes when I look at an image I can picture it a little bit different. When I was making the card I posted yesterday using a Sassy Cheryl's digital image with the swirling Fall leaves, I thought of another of her images that would look so cute with the leaves but it is a Winter/Christmas theme. So by transforming the present she is sitting on into a bench, coloring the birds red for winter cardinals and then cutting them all out to eliminate the snow fall of the background - I could create a Fall scene. I colored her clothes in appropriate colors, pasting her and the birds onto a blue sky background and added leaves that I cut out from another print of the first image. Monday I will post the completed card. You can purchase all of Cheryl's wonderful images  at

Thank you for stopping by today to visit my blog! Wishing you a great weekend! We continue to have hot and humid weather here in this part of WI but at least with the rain we can see some green again!
