I altered a photo again and used this one from March as my starting point

3-march-(5)

and this is what I created

this one I will be printing off and I think it would make a great postcard too

I found some wool in approximate colours too so was able to make another square for a charity blanket to be sent for blankets for AIDS orphans in South Africa

I enjoyed looking at all the lovely summer of colour creations last week and know they will be fantastic this week too across a wide range of styles and mediums

It would make a great postcard. It just goes to show what a little creative imagination can do: the two pictures are totally different.

A great colour combo for a square too

Love your altered photo and the addition of the white bird makes the piece work really well.

Your digital interpretation of your photo is fantastic. I love this one, and I can see how it would be very popular. Your bird really popped and was just the right amount of white for the piece.

Nicely done on the crocheted piece, too. You are very thoughtful to do these charity pieces.

What a beautiful transformation of an already beautiful photo!

The square is nice in both pattern and color! I'm going to check out that website.

You have a real eye for colour and who'd have guessed you could make photo 2 from photo 1?

Great photo-editing, Helena, it's made a marvellous digital picture and the addition of the bird gives it the right finishing touch.
I like your crochet too, another good idea to make a square from the SOC colours.
