A Pixie Tea

    Prev Next

    "A Pixie Tea", was created from a plain black and white vintage photo from the Turn of the 19th century. But when I looked at it, I saw magic waiting to show through, so I added bits and pieces from vintage postcards I had, along with a variety of design elements and artistic effects on photoshop, paint shop pro, etc. I even added a collaged postcard I created, as the framed center picture. The tiny postcard image in the center that I created was a base postcard from: Eclectic Gipsyland, here on flickr, she has a lovely array of vintage images, thanks for letting me use that.

    This main picture came from my own collection of pre-1923 vintage copyright free imagery. At the final stage of this piece, I accidentally hit a gradient tool in photoshop and boom, the image was done.
