Winds of Change (punky scraps challenge #29)

Hi all!  A new challenge is up over at punky scraps.  Today is the reveal of challenge #29 Get favorite challenge of the month.  Here is what team B chose for us to use:

  Michelle - Use canvas (anything canvas)
Nat - use this picture to inspire you
Elin - use chipboard
Camilla - use 3 staples
Mandy - B&W photo or image
Maureen - make it monochromatic

This is one of my nieces best friends.  She and my niece decided that they wanted me to take pics of them around town with their dresses on. I was torturing the poor girl making her give me a shot while facing the blaring sun.  I had to edit the photo in B&W because her eyes were so red that she looked like she was high!  It made for a cool, moody looking photo though.  I had no clue what kind of title to give this but while looking through chippies to use I picked up a flourish piece and thought that it reminded me of wind blowing.  So, since the layout seemed so dark and moody, I thought I would put a positive twist on it, and title it winds of change.  Then I was looking up scriptures about change and really didn't find anything I thought would fit with the page, so I decided to change my search to wind and found john 3:8

My main inspiration from the list above was definitely the image...thats why I added the tree, moth (instead of a butterfly to stick with my monochrome scheme), and music note tissue tape from tim holtz.
