This is one of the few old pictures I have of Grandma Aurora. She passed away this year at 89 years old and is
missed so much by all her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

I blended together papers and elements and used some lighting effects to give this heritage photo
an old grungy feel.

JUDGE - This is a really unique layout - love the elements coming over the photos and the blending and coloring is very nice. Only one comment on the shadowing... I think the shadow on the ribbon should be below the ribbon rather than on top, to be consistent with the other shadows. A minor change but I think that's about it. What a blessing for your Grandma to have enjoyed great-grandkids. I'm sure she's missed a lot.

Judge- This is a very different layout, very clever. I do however have to agree with Darlene, the shadowing should be below the ribbon. Also, you forgot to mention the kit and designer in your keywords.

Judge - I agree with Darlene the shadow throws it off. Other than that I think it is very original & pretty

Judge - Gorgeous and so creative! I agree about the shadow and the keywords need the designer and kit name.

JUDGE - This is a beautiful LO! I found myself staring at it awhile, LOL. Although this can be part of the artistic look you were going for, I find I'm a bit confused by something... the shadowing?... the shading?... the blending?.... when I look at the various leaves and the ribbon flower I can't tell if they're over the photos or under them. They seem to be both at the same time because of how you graduated the color over the different portinos of the LO. Again, it might be the effect you wanted and it's very pretty, it's just not 'realistic'. - Oh, and I agree with the other judges on the horizontal ribbon's shadow; it should be moved to the bottom to be consistant with the other elements.

This is so pretty! Love how you blended everything to give it a "dreamy" kind of feel!

Judge - Personally, I would have preferred the LO to be a little less frilly, there is just too much of it all, colours, shapes, layer upon layer... It is beautifully done, but in my personal opinion it is too distracting. This beautiful portrait should be the centre piece, but with all the frills and embelishments, my attention is drawn everywhere and nowhere.
But this is a very personal taste, I am one for the somewhat simpler, harmonious compositions, guiding your gaze to the true subject. But what you have achieved here is very beautiful in its own way, it is done in a very artistic manner.
