I only used the frames, strokes and some of the paint strokes from the template. I used the fotoblendz to mask the larger photo and lowered the opacity to blend into the background a little. The background is composed of Paperie from Destiny and some of the transfers.

This layout was inspired by the current weekly AnnaLift 1/4/14 - 1/10/14 layout that Tasmin did.  The word "Reflection" just caught my eye.

My grand- daughters saw me working on this and said it was "Creepy"....well I guess in a way it is.
I was trying to depict how some people hide behind masks reflecting on the outside whatever they think people want to see.  As in my journaling (my words) .  I don't want to be a reflection of who other people want me to be, but I would rather be a light to cast warmth and light to those around me.  I want to be the ultimate "Reflection" of my God.
