Altered photo

This is what happens when friends let me borrow their supplies:) A couple of weeks ago I had a great evening of decoing and artmaking with a dear friend of mine and it's always so inspiring to see how other people make their things and to get to use their supplies. I wouldn't ever have come up with something like this on my own:)

This is a piece of a booklet which included several copies of the same vintage photo and asked each participant to alter one copy. In the original picture the girl is laying on grass or a meadow and that's where I got the thought to change that to something else entirely.

I scratched the surface of the picture with scissors until I had some basic shapes and then painted on with dark blue acrylic paint.

I like this piece. And it does represent my feelings of having moved from the countryside to the city.
