Digital Halloween

I just realized I haven't posted anything for ages! Well, I was busy preparing my holidays ... yes, yippeeh we go on holidays tomorrow and I still need to do some packing but then I was busy playing with GIMP. (lol) All images I used are from the Graphics Fairy. Karen has such a huge collection ... the choice is always very difficult. I went with a halloween theme as I needed some images for one of my projects. This is how far I got:

This frame is a cabinet card frame ... I removed the writing at the bottom to be able to put my own title or some images or .....
As picture to be framed I used the old photo of two sisters. Ever since Karen mentioned in her description that this card screams 'Halloween' to her I wanted to use it. I removed the white frame from the photo, used the black one I created and titled the photo 'Halloween Sisters'
These were quite basic steps in the image manipulation and this image is what I used for my project but I wanted to go a bit further and started to add graphics to the original photo. A skeleton ... I increased the transparency of the photo so that the skeleton is visible from behind but if you do this you loose some of the vibrancy of the colours ... hmmm I need to work on this ...
The image still looked a bit empty ... a bird was needed and this is what I did
Please feel free to use any of the manipulated graphics but don't forget to pop in to have a look at the Graphics Fairy's amazing collection! Happy Monday, Petra.
