As of today (2014-1-31) “Tea Time” has had 418 viewings.
The Tea cup belonged to my mom – she didn’t have many fancy things and I can’t recall when she got it – I just know it was hers for quite some time and she adored it.
The image was created to show off my moms cup and dish.
All photos were taken by me.
I used Photoshop CS3 as the photo-editing program.
The selected back-ground image comes from a image of an old windowed door placed up against a vieny brick wall. I took a section of door, window an wall – enlarged it and placed it behind the cup. It got passed through a Photoshop filter (sprayed strokes).
The fairy comes from a yard ornament of a butterfly that I have played with a few times over now.
That makes three main images to the compilation – I then added color by adding flower pictures and working them through the filters and blending them in. The flower on the back wall comes from the front of the cup.
The liquid in the cup was done by using the elliptical selection tool and sizing it to the inside of the cup. The selection was then moved over to the glass in the door and I made a copy of that selection. From there I just tried to get it all blended and arranged together.
My wife and daughter gave critique and added their suggestions. I do thank them.
