Thoughts on Life
This is a photo I took of my husband in July 2012 while we were on a weekend get-away to a music festival in Alexandria Bay, New York.
My husband is a guitar player. When he changes out his stings on his guitar, he always rolls them in a circle before tossing them away. This time, instead of tossing them out, I grabbed them. They look very cool all rolled up. That's the metal piece you see in the layout. I wanted to capture the essence of the photo - we were having a great time, in a peaceful place, enjoying music.
I used some cheesecloth to create the water by adding a lot of molding paste to hold it in place, then using mists to color.
The design is by Nadia Cannizzo.

This is an image of the amazing stick pin by Mandy Harrell from the Sept, MY Guy SOD kit.

Photo after I added the words in photoshop. Took me a while because I used a different font for each word.
Thanks for looking at my art work.
