  1. Gosh that is a lot of work! But the result is beautiful. I think you are to blame for my sudden predilection for adding effects to my images πŸ˜‰

    • Quite happy to take responsibility for that Jude πŸ˜‰ As you know, I started out as a fine art painter so I really feel like the processes I take and the amount of work that I may put into an image is just the same as painting! There’s a lot of satisfaction in it πŸ™‚

  2. I loved this darker mood with a touch of abstract, when I saw it last week Sarah – my apologies – Ive been having issues with commenting – finally made it…I hope 😜
    Also really appreciate all the transitioning through different software to make this so appealing!!

    • You did!! I think WP have been changing things again πŸ˜‰ I’ve been having problems liking posts on Reader.

      I hope my processing lists do make it appealing and don’t start scaring people from trying things out πŸ˜‰ I’m having fun with the double-exposures and multiple image pieces!
