Art Challenge Entry

The last Art challenge of the year is going on over at "Mind Wide Open" -(see side bar left hand side for link to website.)

and this was the image we were given to work with...(the black and white)
The topic was "Beginnings"
So..I did something very, very simple with the image.

I wanted it to have a bit of color, but still feel "old" So I simply converted to image to sepia, and gave it a bit more "warmth"..and added a little "glow" to the image.

I printed it out onto vinyl, and applied that to a mat board. ...Then Printed out a photo quality blue morpho butterfly image onto vinyl and applied that to the image along with some white lettering. that reads" Everyday is a new beginning..."

This is the result: An 11 by 14 frameable image.

Voting starts on the 8th at the remember to vote for your favorite art work.
Hope you all are having a good weekend.
May your week be a lovely one.
Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Tina,
I love that you kept it simple! It would be neat if we could feel it, I think the vinyl would be excellent! The blue butterfly is gorgeous..
Lovely piece!
