Return to Sender…

this is a piece I created using a photo from a farmer’s market flower bouquet along with a photo from part of my recent art journal pages…

Magpie's Nest Patty Szymkowicz Return to Sender Steps

I layered the photos using the Diana iphone app adding  the hand “sticker” and words along with a few other layers with the PixlrExpress iphone app and printed out a copy with our laser printer (approximately 6×6 inches)

  9. “Return to sender,adress unknown” this old Elvis song came in my head when I read your headline. Wow what you created with your I phone looks so nice. I love it and it’s soft colors and the look of used fabric on it. Great!
    You are an I phone artist now. 🙂
    Dearest greetings
