Next Lace Book Pages

The next lace book in my round robin group is for my friend Karen.  Her theme is the Madonna, and these images are from the two pages I made for her.


This image is from a photo I took at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City - Madonna 
and Child by Giovanni Bellini





And in this one, below, I altered an image to give it a cracked, mellow look by using an 
image of yellowed cracks and applying it with a blending mode in Photoshop.  
(I softened the cracks in the facial area to keep their faces pretty.) 
The blue lace up top with crosses is from the NYC garment district -
I was so happy to find it, as it's perfect for her theme.


The small Pieta image, below, is one I took at 
St. Patrick's cathedral.

Oh, Teri, there are no words. Your pages are absolutely gorgeous and touched my heart. The images are beautiful; love it all and the color theme. Your "photos" and "finds" mean more than you know. Thank you. Karen [Someday I would love to visit the places available to you... what opportunities.]
