Discriminating and purposeful

This week, unlike previously, Art Creations Friday provided two images for their challenge, a background and an old photo of a little girl.



I altered the photo very little, just giving it rough edges but I have altered the background quite a lot, though quite subtly, to integrate the photo into it. I thought the little girl looked very discerning, hence the words! Let me know what you think.

We often spend all our time on the image and forget about the background. What you have done with your background is fantastic. I love the addition of colour and text and grunge, and the word strips set it all off to a tee.
Great artwork.

In your profile you say you're a dabbler but I would say you are so much more than that ~ this piece is so wonderful!
