Portrait

I needed inspiration today - did not want to do another flower! I got this idea and worked on it. Not sure that its exactly the way I want it but that’s not the criteria.

On one side I’m normal, on the other I'm in limbo!

Three good things:
1. I also tried with some of Picmonkey’s options particularly the “overlays’! Have a go! I’ll post another on my other album.
2. My Main Man is stuck with his leg above his heart ( Doctors orders) but finds it difficult to move let alone help me with the dishes - funny that! He got injured slipping on to an enormous block of Oamaru Stone and damaged his shin. Now it won’t heal. He likes watching the cricket, anyway!
3. I planted radish seed and John asked me 14 minutes later whether it had come up! It shouldn’t be long - soil is moist and the weather is not cold.
Very cool effect! I didn't know that you could do this in Picmonkey.

Fantastic Maggiemae! And isn't the normal/limbo conundrum the way of life???
December 19th, 2015  
@shesnapped - limbo to me is 'waiting to happen', Ashley! Normal - is - it has happened! Yes I suppose you are right!
December 19th, 2015

@pandorasecho Thanks Dixie - all you have to do is have an idea in mind and then use your apps to create it! It doesn't have to be beautiful photography just a piece of work!

@pamknowler So do I, Pam - he's on penicillin which is now making him feel sick! No Christmas tarts for him today!
December 19th, 2015  
Very clever idea with a very interesting outcome. Fun one.
December 19th, 2015  
Is Picmonkey worth buying? I like your edits and like the effect you achieved.
December 19th, 2015  
What a great effect, very well done Maggiemae.

@bruni You get the basic app free with your ace membership, Bruni! I have upgraded - its a few dollars a month, I think.
December 19th, 2015  
Very creative and it seems to express how you feel
December 19th, 2015  
I find this quite amazing, fav. Hope John feels better in time for Christmas.
December 20th, 2015  
Nicely done
December 20th, 2015  
Coolness!
December 20th, 2015

December 20th, 2015  
Like this. The difference is that I think I am 100% after this year! Well done!! Fav.
December 20th, 2015  
@sdutoit I hope that means 100% in health? Or maybe you are talking about your 365 project?
December 20th, 2015  
Well done Maggie! Of course I always knew you were a piece of art! Get well wishes to John!
December 20th, 2015  
This is very creative! It is surely way interesting than flowers.
December 20th, 2015  
@yaorenliu Thanks Yao - I'm starting to do things to flowers now - change the face of nature within the camera!
December 20th, 2015  
This is soooo creative! What a fantastic result of your processing.
December 20th, 2015  
Great idea and processing
December 20th, 2015  
No problem with this one, it is creative and in some ways provocative. It really captured my attention.
December 20th, 2015  
Very creative and thought-provoking!

December 20th, 2015  
This is really clever.

Super effective technique, Marg. Sorry to hear about J's mishap, hope he recovers soon; penicillen can make some people very nauseous.
December 20th, 2015  
I must return to comment on this! I am watching TV & catching up with comments....this one needs my full attention!!
December 20th, 2015  
Neat very creative

Very creative and neat effect. Looks like it must be fun to play around with.

Very creative processing. A great idea for normality vs limbo.
December 22nd, 2015  
Great processing, fav!
December 22nd, 2015  
I love what you did here....FAV! You look like a work in progress (aren't we all!) as you are either changing from a real life person into a drawing, or the other way around!
