I have had this adorable photo of dancing Parisian girls for some time. I love the picture, the girls in it, the cute dancing pose and everything about it. There was one problem though. The photo was so incredibly light that there was not much I had been able to use it for. It came from my Flikr pool and I really wanted to use it as is instead of putting it into photo shop or a card program.
As I began to embellish the image I noticed that the more stuff I added, the more the image stood out. You would think just the opposite would happen right? Not in this case for some reason. With that in mind I added lace, lace and more lace! I added paper swirls, paper flowers and sequins. I added word stickers, organza and gross grain ribbons, buttons and photo corners. Then I whipped out the distress ink in antique and started tinting everything.
The final piece is very busy indeed but it accomplished what I wanted which was to have the adorable photo of the dancing gals show up as the focal point.
