Happy Birthday, Mom!

Photograph of Original Paper Image

Mom's birthday was last Monday and the polka dot wrapping paper she tore off her gift inspired this week's "primitive" paper collage. I cut the pieces, glued some together, layed them in position on black poster board, and snapped the picture. I uploaded the picture to Mom's computer, and using her mouse and Photoshop 6.0, I clumsily cleaned up the image and added the shadow and highlights.

I added the cups and saucers in honor of Creative Cup's anniversary on May 3...the C-cuppers will be celebrating 1 year on Saturday!
