A Different Kind of Sunset

This is one of the Magic Carpet ATC's I made. The awesome photo was taken by my sister, Sherry. That little turkey thought to take a photo down inside a vase I had in my guest bathroom. Who would think to do that? I loved it when she showcased it on her blog. (See sidebar for "Picture My World" blog)

I decided to make a transparency of the photo, and put it over a copy of a sunrise that I printed off the web. It doesn't show up in the photo here, but you can see hints of pinks and blues through the transparency. Then I added the silhouette of the magic carpet rider and set him off sailing through the sunset; at least this version of a sunset.

Today feels more like a day where I'm going down in flames, rather than riding off into a sunset. Printer issues, deadlines upcoming, just normal aggravations that can S-L-O-W you down. That is something I don't need right now. But, if the printer can hold out for another week or so we have one on order. Cross your fingers for me. I have major deadlines for things I've promised people and I don't want a lousy printer holding me up! Anyway, stay tuned...

That is so cool! The sunset idea was great - it does remind you of a sunset.
