Focusing on Life :: Splendor in the grass

This week our prompt from Sally was to add something to our pictures ... or in other words edit the picture. I decided to have a little fun with a pair of beaded earrings I made with some stone squares Melinda Orr sent me. 

I had originally photographed them with a fiber background, but then re-photographed it with a plain white background so I could take the background out and play with the picture. 

The results are this whimsical shot of my earrings appearing to be lying in a field of grass. I played around with the blades of grass so they layered onto the collage. Total silliness. 


For all those participating in Sally's hop, I will be a bit delayed in getting around to everyone's posts as I'm off to Bead Fest!

Very clever! Wonder what inspired the green and yellow in the earrings. Hmmm.
