I`m a Late Bloomer

I am so excited to be featured on this lovely blog for late bloomers http://www.imalatebloomer.com/ it encourages me and inspires me to continue on my artful journey.  I love reading the amazing stories of others that started on their art journey later in life and how it has added more joy and happiness to their life.


Collage Obsession

I follow a blog, Collage Obsession Challenge, http://collageobsessionchallenge.blogspot.fi/ and have recently started participating in their weekly challenges and  got up the courage to post some of my creations on their Face Book page.  I have found doing this really helps get the creative juices flowing because you have a theme to work with and it is fun to see what other artist’s interpretations are – all are so totally different.

This week’s challenge is the colour ‘Brown’.  I love using browns in my creations so this was a great challenge while trying to increase my technical skills using Photoshop Elements. This collage is created digitally using my own Photoshop brushes and trying new techniques with the filters, etc. in Photoshop.

Create the Life of Your Dreams

The side images of the shutters are adobe brushes I created from and old postcard I had, background is a photo of azaleas that I took in the summer and  I just discovered this great website www.oscraps.com  where you can purchase digital paper and kits and used this freebee they had to add to the background, etc.

Until next time, happy creating
