Your Paradise

Digital collage can be so much fun.  I took this water-colour painting I did in my mixed-media journal while I was in Mexico this winter and scanned it.

You can make the place you are now your paradise....

I then made a totally different looking collage out of it digitally using Photo Shop Elements 10  by adding various back grounds and using a variety of filters such as multiply, hard light and the water-colour filter.

Embrace Your Journey

I have been AOL from my blog posts – April was a very sad month, my brother was very ill and passed away mid-April so I haven’t been very focused on my art or blogging.  But I am now ready to get creative once again.

Today I started playing around with a watercolour painting that I did while in Mexico which I scanned and then added some digital enhancement to it using Photoshop Elements 10.

Love. Focus your thoughts. Embrace your journey.

Love. Focus your thoughts. Embrace your journey.

I included some background papers with various filters and then added some grass at the bottom using a Photoshop brush and then painted some grass background.  I added a handwritten quote that I had scanned as well.  I like how it all turned out and most of all it felt so good to be creative after such a long time…art helps your heart heal and feel so much lighter.

Until next time

Be gentle with yourself
