Lost and Found

I spend a lot of time looking for things! Things I just had a minute ago. The worst thing a person can do is clean up, organize and rearrange. It's deadly. Let me explain. I tend to remember where things were before I rearranged. Not the new place I put it. Old buttons, vintage photographs, well, you get the idea. The photograph shown here doesn't have anything to do with what I just said. Except for the words Lost and Found. That has every thing to do with my predicament. Finding that lost "thing" makes me so happy. You would think I hit the lottery.
Anyway, working with photoshop, in layers, the vintage girls, old shoe buttons and antique lace. Then I play with the images, painting, cropping, layering with various degrees of opacity.

This began with a photo I took of some vintage horse show ribbons. They are on ebay this week. $20 for all 7. Pleated rayon ribbon looks great and the horse medallions really look cool. Worked in photoshop, painted edges of photo and posterized it, too.

  1. Love the "Lost and Found" piece. Photoshop and I have a love/hate relationship, so I admire people who can such beautiful art with it!
