My maternal grandfather was a fun and loving man, who always had time for my brother, cousins and me as a child. Therefore, although my maternal grandmother passed away several years before I was born, I knew my grandparent's marriage had to be based on kindness. When I saw this week's Take A Word - Weddings challenge, I knew I had to use my maternal grandparents' wedding picture in a digital collage. Using this week's Play Date Cafe PDCC 134 soft color story of apricot, canary, latte and rose, it was the perfect combination. In addition, these colors fit perfectly with the Three Muses Challenge - Warm Colours!

I took a scanned image of the photograph and loaded it to a Sketchbook app in my iPad. That became the first layer. Then, I added a second layer and filled it in with a rose color, but reduced the opacity to have my photograph show through. Next, I used a third layer to draw the bird scene and frame using a Bamboo Stylus. Finally, I typed in the text.
As you may imagine, this was a very meaningful piece for me to work on. I plan to print it for my mother and her remaining siblings. I believe they'll like it. As usual, you are cordially invited to leave a comment and/or join my blog. Blessings!
