4 x 4 Friday - "Vintage Brides"


Usually I start a piece with an image, a background, some portion of the whole, and build from there--often surprising myself with the finished product. However, this morning, this completed idea popped into my head immediately when I saw the theme for 4x4 Friday: "Vintage Brides". Knowing what I wanted to do and getting it done became another matter. You may think that the bride image is a transfer, but you would be mistaken. It seems me and transfers are not exactly 100%. Undaunted, I plowed ahead, tried another method, and viola! The image of the bride is printed on tissue paper! And I think it turned out great, if I do say so myself!!
