V for Violetta

Following La Cieca’s meager example above, the cher public are encouraged to devise images of album covers based on Renée Fleming’s Guilty Pleasures CD.

Be creative in tweaking the original image with Photoshop or any other image editing software, then save your images in .jpg or .png format, no larger than 500 x 500 pixels, and email to lacieca@parterre.com. The most intriguing oeuvres will be published on parterre.com and the best of the best will win a coveted Amazon Gift Card. Let’s enjoy this little game for, say, a week, with results to be posted next Sunday?
