Today the sweet Friends of SCACD group and the SCACD Design Team are showcasing Fall images - even some with a twist. If you want to see all the peeps presenting their inspirations today not to mention a shot at some yummy blog candy and Susana's offering a sweet FREE digi image thru October 5, then head to the SCACD Store Blog for details.
So, this lovely lady is not necessarily a "fall" piece, but it is my take on twisting the image - Gathering Love.
I love taking "normal" images, and coloring them and then associating them with a saying that would not normally be seen with it. For Gathering Love I imagined the flowers as creeping black roses - bleeding hearts. I wanted to try a dip dye technique on the hair going from the red to the black.
After coloring her and adding the bleeding drops from the flowers, and her blood tears, I went looking for inspirational quotes. When I think of classy ladies with inspirational quotes I think of Morticia Addams. :-) This is a quote from one of the movies.
I am not making a card out of this, but I use a lot of colored images in different ways to keep stuff with me at work. So I am going to be putting this on a work notebook. :-)
I hope you all have a wonderful day. And be inspired by different things and put a twist on an image of your own!
