The Carnival

Opened up my picture folder tonight to find some photos to accompany my post and instead found a photo I had taken of my niece Ellie right after she was born. I had been working on creating a textured background for the picture and began to play with it again. Suddenly I remembered some images I had from the Tunbridge Fair and a new photo collage was born. This is only a draft, I plan to print it out and definitely draw, maybe embroider on it. We'll see.



Come Ellie to the carnival
The merry-go-round of life
Enjoy Ellie the Ferris wheel
Spinning boldly forward in time
Dance Ellie past the funhouse
mirror reflecting who you are
Laugh Ellie at its distortion
Grab the gold ring
Be the star.
