The Sunday Creative ~ Prompt 1

Hey guys and gals, the wonderful Madeline Bea is kindly giving us all a free weekly challenge to continue unleashing the creative side of us. Prompts will be given each Sunday and we have that week to do something and link to it on her blog. You can find out more by using The Sunday Creative link on the left of her blog.

The first word prompt; last Sunday, was OPEN.

I had thought of opening your heart and preparing for it to be broken, but couldn't work out how to portray that to the world.

So, today I gave up with that and went with a view of the outside world from an OPEN window.
I've edited the photo to make it sepia as well as applying a couple of different framing effects and such using Picnik (an on-line photo editing programme). Next time I'll make note of what I did.

Once I'd taken that photograph, my brain kicked in and I got crafting.
Here's the result of my original thought

I cut the broken heart on my CraftROBO and coloured it using red chalk ink. A few blooms and buttons and it was finished. The tiny hearts were cut using a punch.
The frame was added, once again using Picnik

Thanks for looking
Love, Sarah C xx

Hey Sarah-
I love both of your results of open. I think your heart speaks wisdom we all understand.
I too posted a window, but I don't have any editing tools so it is what it is. I like the editing you did.
Looking forward to having a new prompt for the coming week.
Happy 7/4 to you.
