"Celtic Orange" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)
This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was "Orange."

I wasn't sure if this was a color or fruit challenge, so I went with color.

I started with two old book pages that I combined into one. Next, I added text strips about the moon and night from a white old book page. Then I added Celtic related orange text strips. I used an orange blank old book page to cut out stars that I placed throughout the postcard. I completed the piece by adding the birds and flowers.

I created this using GIMP 2.8.16.

The vintage images are from an Internet search. (See the side of my blog for links.)

Last Friday night (actually Saturday starting around 1am) into Sunday morning, I got about 1 foot of snow where I live, from the Blizzard that shutdown the tri-state area. But by the end of this week, a lot of that snow has melted down.

I dub you Queen of Layering, Anne! This is magnificent!

There is so much to discover in this piece! It's beautiful in appearance and in the words to read. You're very talented creating this on the computer. I can barely change a photo from light to dark let alone put pieces together. This postcard is so nicely done.

Fruit or colour, it's completely open. I love your use of the colour here, Anne. Beautiful and intriguing.
