Digital Two for Tuesday 42
Welcome to Digital Two for Tuesday. The digital challenge site. Each week we post two images for you to play with and hopefully share your projects with the group. There are almost 300 followers of this site now and I am amazed at how much we have grown in such a short time.
The images this week are from The Designer magazine August 1901. It is one of my favorite magazine's I own. The Designer was put out by Standard Fashion Company in NYC.
This week's guest designer is Petra. She has given us two beautiful project to inspire us to take the challenge. I love the vintage feel of her work. Here is a bio and description of her projects in her own words. "Hi, I am Petra and being a bit of a craft addict I immensely enjoy anything to do with crafting. But only about two years ago almost by accident I discovered vintage images and the art of altering images digitally ... and I love it! Thank you so much to Cora for giving me the chance to be this week's guest designer. Cora's images are always truly amazing and this week is no exception but I must admit that they proved to be a real challenge for me.
The Sailing Lady turned into a Travel Tag: I stripped the image of the Sailing Lady leaving just the woman, the rail and life belt, and layered it digitally with a boat scenery and lots of suitcases.
To make sure that everybody knows that she has gone fishing, I made a door or wall hanger 'I am fishing'. This time the image has been left unchanged. I coloured it with chalks, colour pencils and Copics and gave it a frame.
