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.
