Of course, I had to do a bit of altering to the original black and white photo, since I have to alter everything! And so I went in a different direction. Here it is close up:
Ok, I must confess. As do many things that turn out better than you thought, this started with a mistake. I had messed up the eye on the woman on the right and I was muttering to myself that I ought to just stick an eye patch on her rather than start over. Our daughter, who happened to be at our house at the time, replied "Yeah, just make her a pirate!" and that's all I needed. I immediately made little pirate hats for them all, and added Once upon A Time... to the top left. It has more bling than shows up in the photograph!
Material used: black and white photo, cardstock, Gel pens, Stardust pens, Micron pens, Stickles, decorative tape, rubber stamp, watercolor, distressed inks, and old metal frame.
