Jardin


This is my digital entry for the Mixed Media Monday challenge "Marie Antoinette". I decided to put Marie ( image from wikimedia) in a garden setting with the roses that she loved. The roses are a personal photo of my own flowers cropped and layered. The background is from scrapbookgraphics, ironwork from Lorie Davison and the ivy is a cool photoshop (special effects)brush that I added . Mixed multiply and gradient hues helped create a rich, shadowed color and effect.
