Tribute to a Beautiful Woman!

One of the students who is taking our digital workshops, offered us the use of a vintage image of her Grandmother.  I wanted to pay tribute to this woman who has gone before us in a very respected way, so I used the image to create several layouts using an upcoming technique written by my co-instructor, Sherre Hulbert.  (There is a link to her blog in my sidebar. Look for:  Altered Heart Designs) 

This second layout used a commercial filter to alter the image, then I added a handwriting script brush along the right side.  I couldn't decide which one I liked the best, so here are both of them Marisa!  I hope you like the effects!  Your Grandmother has now been to Utah!  Where will her journey take her next?

Both are lovely, and each has such a different feel. I may like the second one a tiny bit better--Im a real sucker for script--but only a little

Cindy, thank you, you just made my day. What a wonderful piece of art. It will be a fantastic memory for many years from now. Like I said she just started traveling around the world.
Thank you, Marisa
