Digital "Wizadry"

There are so many brilliant people out there who are so creative with using all those applications designed to do/help with processing images digitally. I have not really engaged with such processes so far nor have I the necessary tools installed on my computer (like Photoshop). But inspired by the work of the Crafters Kitchen, Cathy from Cathy Michaels Design and all the Brag Monday projects shown on The Graphics Fairy blog I thought I give it a go and create something which is clean and uncluttered with maybe one or two eye-catching features. Guess what happened

It got completely out of hands, and I went completely over the top.
I downloaded the chandelier sheet from Crafters Kitchen and the lovely clip art from Karen, The Graphics Fairy and merged the two. Then I embedded the new image within a background I also found at the Crafters Kitchen. I just used OpenOffice Text for this operation.
Having created this basic layout the plan was to attach it to white card and use one of the Graphics Fairy's shoes with a bit of bling as embellishment. But then I saw this little tiny bit of lace on my workdesk and this was the start of something quite different :-)

square white card
paper - Crafters Kitchen, American Crafts, plain white card
images - Crafter's Kitchen, The Graphics Fairy
lace, ribbon - found in my stash
flowers - Artemisio
bling - Artemisio, Kanban
pearls - from a bag of bargain ribbons :-)
