Gingersnap Creations Challenge GC102 - Jake and Lorena

This week's Gingersnap Creations challenge was to use twine.  Well, I was a bit disappointed, actually, since twine had been a big part of my GC101 Challenge!  What to do?  I decided to continue with my Lonesome Dove theme and make a collage for Jake and Lorena.  If you saw the film, you know that Jake was hanged as a horse thief after abandoning Lorena. 

I used bark from a birch tree to form the tree.  I used a new Martha Stewart leaf cutter for the leaves.  I really like this design! I know I will use it a lot! I cut the leaves out of Glorious Brayered Paper painted with several shades of green and gold.  I looked up on the Internet how to tie a noose.

I photoshopped the photos of Jake and Lorena and added the sunburst.
