Frozen

"Frozen" is this week's challenge theme at Collage Obsession. This is my first entry to one of their challenges. The cutout of Molly Malone is from this Wikimedia Commons photo. It is the same one I use in my blog header. The 19th century Dublin waterfront postcard is from this blog post by Arran Q Henderson. The wings and frost are from a digital scrap kit here and the icicles in the forefront are from here.

I use PaintShop Pro X6 and the image includes lots of layers and a few plugin effects for the ice and snow. Molly is not only frozen solid, she is frozen in time. It was lots of fun putting together and time passed quickly while I was lost in the creative zone. Yikes! After midnight! It's late, and I'm freezing cold.

  1. Welcome, Molly the Fishmonger! (Love your name!!!) We're glad you participated in CO this week, and hope you continue to join us. Your collage is lovely and certainly evokes a sense of bitter cold. The effects you've created are fabulous!
