|Gracie and her "Mama" Deer|
When I first heard Bonnie's prompt for this week's Photo Art Friday, I was pretty sure which photos I would use. These two always make my jaw drop, first BEcause Gracie seemed to BEcome a "dog" instead of a puppy, and second BEcause the two just happened to turn up, nothing at all intended.
I tried all sorts of things, using textures, fiddling with the photos themselves, zigging and zagging BEtween Picasa, Photoshop Elements, and Pixlr Express, and finally settled for this "collage" of the two of them. Sometimes I make myself a little crazy, and I KNOW there will come a time when I look back at this and laugh loudly. For Now, I am smiling.
I am glad I got it here BEcause I sure learned a LOT about how it is to use an effect multiple times, and how to make two different photos play well together! I might NOT have accomplished what I hoped to, but Now I actually know what I don't know and how to DO something I hadn't known how to ask about until Now. That's worth the little bit of crazy...
