Ice Cream

I am a member of a Facebook page for Craft Artist Users, and this month's "homework" was blending.  This was my first effort, and I thought I would share it on my blog.
In the picture below you can see the three photos I used to create the memory page.  The middle photo on left was made more transparent.  I also cut out the image of me prior to making the background, and made me lose some of my windswept hair!  I the cut out the waddling swan, and added that to the background.  Finally I gave the ice cream photo a oil painting look and added a blending frame.   Finishing touches was a bubbly frame, and some words.

Finally I should add that I really need to redo the page, as I was convinced the photos were taken last year, but searching for the original photos again to create the layout in the second photo for the blog, I in fact discovered it was taken in October 2011!  (Oops).  So it was an Indian Summer Day and not a Summer's Day!  I think actually it was our Wedding Anniversary on reflection!
