ETA: Thank you all for the great votes - I feel honored to have ribboned in this topic as it is my passion to create art that a parent would love to look back on for years/generations to come. So, it is especially meaningful to me.

This was a ballerina that I had in studio - I removed her tutu with a black fill and brought back the tutu with a dandelion seed brush on a mask. I am KICKING myself that I didn't black out the waist band of the tutu so that the seeds would have appeared to be part of 'her' as opposed to a skirt. Live and learn.

Kasaba ó This tutu I covered with black to match the background and brought back sections of it with a dandelion brush. Sorry this is formatted correctly, trying to remember how to respond to individuals LOL

Wow, this is beautiful. Congratulations on your creativity - beautifully executed. Well deserving of a ribbbon in a challenge with many outstanding entries. Welcome back - I too returned fairly recently after more than 7 years away and am glad to have reintegrated. This site challenges in a way most others donít.

Beautiful image! - just out of curiosity, are the seed heads a brush? Just asking because the DOF is amazing.

Thank you all for the high votes. This was a gorgeous ballerina in a tutu that I brought back with dandelion brushes. It was a very fun experiment to try.
