Tinted Vision Fragments

After a week long road trip - first to Sacramento for baseball and then a quick business trip to Detroit, I'm looking forward to getting back to some artwork! First stop, Studio L3's Weekly Compendium of Curiosities Challenge featuring tinted vision fragments.  These were easy and so much fun.  I wanted to make a few little thank-you gifts for my family and decided these simple charms made with family heritage pictures would do the trick.  I also have plans to turn the large oval one into a card, which you'll no doubt see later this week.
As always, thanks for the challenge Linda!

I love the little bride one in the center row. Real nice work.

I am back from the land of Mortal Muses. I need sleep. :)

Holy cow, Rinda, these are amazing! Your family is going to be so impressed with the gorgeous way you've used these photos. The technique is beautifully done, and the colors are perfect. I just love these-- what a magical way to pay homage to your ancestors.

Linda has said all there is to say :-) Sounds like you have been busy on all fronts, I'll stay tuned for the cards later in the week.

These are just gorgeous! How did you get back into creating so quickly after being away? I'm finding it hard to get into a rhythmn again. Hope the business trip was a good one.
