Friendship is precious

Original B&W picture by Philippe Halsman. I enlarged, colored and applied filters. 
Quote by Thomas Jefferson.

The theme word for this week at Take a Word is FRIENDS and I'm very honored to be the guest host. The problem was providing a sample good enough.  I made a first attempt, but didn't like the result. So I decided to try a different proposition, I liked. Then I decided to try to improve that first. It was not bad. As I didn't know which one to choose, I sent the two and left the hard work for Marie. She was kind enough to post both. Thanks, dear Marie, for the opportunity.

Original illustrations by Ida Rentoul Outhwaite and Jessie Willcox Smith. 
Background are cutouts of a gorgeous quilt. Texture by Kim Klassen.

O tema desta semana em Take a Word é AMIGOS e estou muita honrada de ser a anfitriã convidada. O problema foi fornecer uma colagem suficientemente boa. Fiz uma primeira tentativa, mas não gostei do resultado. Então, decidi tentar uma proposta diferente e gostei. Aí, decidi tentar melhorar a primeira tentativa. Não ficou ruim. Como eu não sabia qual escolher, enviei as duas e deixei o trabalho duro para Marie. Ela foi gentil o bastante de postar ambas. Obrigada, querida Marie, pela oportunidade.
