Be Free

Be Free unframed

Here is my latest submission for CSI challenge number 172

I just love this photo of my dgs, such a well timed photo with his shadow almost becoming the focal point of the photo with such symbolicism of him being bigger than the world.

I am also going to enter this into the 7dots studio challenge which is on animals this month.  My choice of an animal is one of my favourites, a seahorse, such elusive animals in the sea world, almost etherical.  For me they conjour the images of fairy tale type creatures.

Close ups of the embossed globe using 4 different powderts.  The twine has been sprayed with Cest la vie Cerise from Lindys Stamp Gang.

These seahorses are embossed with Lindys Midnight Teal and glitter from Doodlebug.  I addd three coats of embossing powder to achieve this lush look.  The gauze was sprayed with Lindys Steampunk Sepia.  And of course the gems are from Prima.
