Cut a photo challenge

The Scrap like you mean it (SLYMI) challenge this week was to cut a photo and use it like that in a layout I did two the first one took me ages as I was really scrapping out of my comfort zone and I am still not sure that I particularly like. The second one was so much easier to do as I knew that I was only playing make believe so it wasn't important to be real.
This one of Daniel and Helen I wanted the effect of them coming out of the frame which wasn't so hard to do but the things that caused me a lot of time was the stylistic embellishments. All the small flowers were cut from patterned papers I had made using the image offset in PaintShop Pro and then superimposing another one at 90 degrees and making that translucent, which gives a plaid effect. This one was the fun one, I have added my photo of me in my wedding dress to the photo of Winchester Cathedral taking out the background setting that I was really in then giving the whole image a cathedral like appearance by cutting it in an arch. The flowers are cut from the photo of the flowers in my church at my late husbands funeral. These were done specially for me by a friend using the same flowers that I had in my wedding bouquet.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
