San Miguel de Allende Six

Having just spent a week in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, I've come home with an amazing amount of material to work with. This is my first photomontage from the trip. I combined texture from two different walls, a big number six, hand-painted flowers and flourishes from a third wall, a photo of a heart I found above a door, the words "San Miguel de Allende" from a tobacco shop, and a number three found I don't remember where.

Five Star

Here I combined a star and a colorful wall found in South Beach, Oregon with a number 5 from a train car in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with a board covered with fish scales in Newport, Oregon. Triangles from a stairway in Santa Fe, paint, rivets, and overall grunge add to the texture. Not yet available for sale. ©Carol Leigh Add Video

Birdhouse Number 02

This was a fun one to do. I combined a tacky-looking birdhouse (shot in front of an antique store) with a photo of rusty metal from a fishing net salvage yard. I added various photos of numbers, paint, a checkerboard, and a wooden step from a staircase to complete the look. Not yet available for sale. ©Carol Leigh
