All the while I've been doing projects with photos, specifically like the ones on this etsy page. I hope other people are as excited as I am about this digital option we now have to create special art pieces that hold a sort of timeless feel to them.

It's always a joy to see the outcome taking a simple photograph and turning it into something truly special.
