It's June!!! Where is the time going? I think it goes by faster every year! We need to be sure we are taking time to smell the roses along the way! This week has been a struggle for me. I've been sick most of the week, but have managed to get a bit of sewing done and played with more digital manipulation of photographs.
Being sick, it was easier to lay in bed and play with my tablet, than to get out my sketchbook and draw. I went through several tutorials (again) for Photoshop Elements. With step-by-step instructions, one would think the images would end up like the tutorial.Not me - some I wasn't even close to the results the tutorial showed! Lol!! I did figure out enough to manipulate the following photos into something I thought was interesting.
My original photos of the rosebud and century plant.
|Striped red/yellow rose on top of geranium leaves. I like the green geranium leaf showing through|
the bottom of the faded rose. I can see using this photo as a place to start a mixed-media project.
The original photos of the geranium leaves and the striped rose.
These are the original photos of the purple flowers, the orange rose, and a pot of vegetables that I used to create the above photo collage.
I learn more each time I use Photoshop Elements ( (or stumble my way through it). Maybe one of these days, it will actually start making sense! Lol! It's fun to play and manipulate photos to create new ideas, textures, and shapes.
