Theme; Challenge by Artcreationsfriday.
This time I want to use a few personal things to add at this entry. It seemed me nice to try it at once.
When you look at the background from the first picture, you see me walking in the "Brabantse" forest. (The province where I live)
Further I wrote some words (with my Wacom tablet) to the journal that I made. (it's my own handwriting) and add a little photo of our garden.

After that; I started with the Challenge.
When I saw the picture I first had to think about Calamity Jane but when I google't I saw that she was more "sturdy ?" then the picture given by Femmy :D
My second thougt was to use a covered western wagon....but FINALY it became this.

*Just click on the pictures for a larger view.
I used the technique of the Quick-mode (Q) to separate every piece of her clothes and skin. Then I changed the colour-balances. Further I add the filter highlights with a blendingmode/ color burn and some brushes.
* CREDITS for the background > CLICK here <

Thanks for looking and I'm glad to see this week all your creative entry's made for this challenge.
Warm greetings. Rian

Both your creations are gorgeous. I love the first for its personal touches. The second one places our cowgirl in the Buffalo Bill era and she seems to be very comfortable there. (Your poster is similar to mine.)

Rian, your work is superb! You really have me reading my manuals trying to achieve a fraction of your talent! Your "personal scene" is a real treat for us! Lovely garden and beautifully and so imaginatively presented to us! Thank you!
(My daughter has a Wacom which she brought home for me the last weekend she was home from college - I tried to hide it but she remembered and took it back :(
I didn't realize what a great birthday present I gave her a couple of years ago!
