Art Journal Caravan - A month
This is "Wren" an art doll from Rebecca McMeen at Scrapbook Graphics, she sits on a cloud pillow, waiting for the butterfly to tell her she is over Dover and it is time to jump, ROFL, life needed a little fantasy This project ends my journey in the Port of Call - United Kingdom, next week we move on to another.
I have found a fab new way to extract items from a photograph, etc., thanks to my new friend Lynnise who sent me a fabulous tutorial link. The butterfly is one of my photographs a few years ago of my marigold containers, he was a wonderful visitor. I learned to make brushes, which is what set me off on this fantastic quest in the first place, I just wanted to learn how to make a brush so I could stamp my name and date on projects, ROFL, it is the simplest things that get you in the deepest waters. My name and date as well as the little cloud pillow Wren sits on are brushes created by me. I have learned to do a drop shadow, which gives the elements their depth, that is an art form all on its own. I have learned how to stylize and emboss alphas.
These are just a few of my new favorite things. Hopefully at the end of the year I will be able to have a hearty belly laugh. Hope everyone has a great day, hugs
