The Bridesmaids


This is my entry for the Collage Obsession challenge . We were given this wonderful photo of all the young ladies in their corsets and I thought of a group of bridesmaids getting ready for the big day. I didn't want to alter the photo as it is so charming of the group so I used digital artistic filters to paint with and added a background of roses from my own photos, chandeliers (deivantart) and clip art of a vintage marriage license.
I am entering this piece into the Theme Thursday challenge as well for the color Pink and Breast Cancer Awareness month.

  3. So gorgeous, Lori. I love the picture and am amazed that people actually wore such uncomfortable looking corsets. I love how you've added the roses and the beautiful pink color.

  13. For the life of me, I can't believe how far behind I am on your blog. I have seen this photo used on the net, but I think yours is the best use of it so far. I really love how you play with those filters and layers.
