This was another challenging challenge. Thanks, Ladies, for the inspiration. I chose to use both the wonderful image of the mansion, albeit not the whole image; and the theme word, Abandoned. My vision is that the house, though abandoned, still retains memories of its better days, spirits, if you will. I further followed the theme by using an image of the dancer, Loie Fuller, who was the epitome of "danced with abandon". Backgrounds and textures by E.Christina and Kersten Franks at Textures For Layers and the text is from the Graphics Fairy. The rest is filters, blending and brushes.
