How did you make this work:
This image was created entirely in Photoshop for a story called Kanoni, written by Seona MacRuary for Giglets Education. The book is about a young Tanzanian girl whose health is deteriorating, but who finds comfort in the appearance of some lovebirds. These spark Kanoni's imagination and, for the first time in a long time, expands her universe outwith the confines of her barred windowed bedroom.
