|Scanned monoprint edited with texture layers in PS Elements.|
I've been OK, but many family events absorbed much time. There have been celebrations and a farewell. Through it all, the joy of the Lord has been my strength.
This Fall my sister introduced me to the Kim Klassen Cafe. WOW! If you enjoy digital editing and textures, don't walk... run to Kim's site. She has plenty of free textures and techniques as well as very reasonably priced on-line workshops. I signed up for her Beyond Layers class. This is one step toward my goal of developing my line of edited images. I have plenty of painted and photographed textures that I am learning to convert to texture layers.
Today's image started with a scan of a monoprint I created for a Green Pepper Press Crusade Challenge. By using some of Kim's free texture layers and manipulating them with effects, I enhanced the print. By adding text in a separate layer, I can change the message at will.
A bit of great news came to me in the past couple weeks. For the second time, I've had work accepted in a national art exhibit. The digital image "Swan Love" will be on display at the Octagon Art Center in Ames, Iowa from January 27, 2012 through April 7, 2012. To say I am thrilled is an understatement.
Thanks for following my blog. I intend to post more regularly. Blessings to you in 2012!
