This is a hybrid LO. It is the title page in Volume #3 of Sheltie Stories.
The background paper includes a close up of my sheltie, Flash. I played with it in PS to make it look like a pen and ink drawing. For the pink on the left side of the LO I sampled the color on Flash's tongue so that it matches perfectly.
I designed the UP in PS and printed it on glossy photo paper (hence, the glare in this shot). The GROWING is wire work and the FLASH is chip board letters covered with paper and inked and the A is painted blue to match the UP. There is a copper flower on the L to match the wire.
