I can't believe it is already the 15th of August!

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 I am absolutely certain, the calendar is wrong, and it really is only the first of July.  So, starting today, I decided to turn back the calendar to 6 weeks earlier and pull the wool over my own eyes.

I have two new pieces of work to share today.   They are "Makeovers" from masterpieces found through Creative Commons (public domain)  and were created primarily from Tumble Fish Studio's new JOLIE PAPIER set of images with  before and afters for fun.    Both of these illustrations were quite time consuming as I had to extract the design details from the backgrounds.

I ADORE "masterpiece" makeovers and have been known to take a little artistic license with masterpieces now and then. That being said, your creations are truly special and spectacularly stunning, Trudi!!!

I've recently returned from my blogging break and am slowly re-entering Blogland. Amazing how a chance of pace can jumpstart creativity! Hope that all is well in your world. Hugs, Terri xoxo

Well Trudi, your hard work pays off. Thats for sure !!
I know how time-consuming it can be to extract the images of a background.
Both images are a feast for the eye !!!
