It is midway through the More Mixed Media challenge and the challenge for this month is "Blue".... a nice winter color don't you think? All though our weather is more gray than blue, since the fog has rolled in.
This journal page started with some scraps of blue prints that I had die cut flowers from. Gesso and blue paint were added then some of the left over die cut flowers (TH Tattered Flower die) Once it all dried I took some Pitt pens and doodled all over it.
With DH home (way more than usual due to the rain) I have been relaxing on the sofa, in the evenings, watching the programs HE likes to watch (which he tapes then watches) I'm not too much into some of the reality ( or should I say "almost" reality) programs he watches......but I digress. It dose give me time to just sit and doodle and spend time with him.......I do have to comment once in a while.....LOL!!
I was scanning this page and putting it through MS Digital Photo to water mark it. Then I got to playing around with all the different things you can do to your photos..........a real time consumer, but fun!
So this is what I did, then saved a copy to my files, so I could share......*grin*
Of course one of the first things is to turn it into a negative....oh I LIKE it!!
Then there was the chalky block.........didn't even know what that meant until I clicked it....LOL
There are quite a few bloggers that are doing hybrid art, and it has fascinated me to see their work. I gave it a try and waaalaa! To be honest, if I were to really get into hybrid work I would use my Adobe Photo Shop program. I know it does a lot more than the simple digital photo program from Micro Soft, but this was my first attempt and I KNOW how to use this program more than the other one.
*NOTE TO SELF: start playing and learning Adobe Photo Shop!*
Which one catches your eye?
There is still time to join this challenge and you don't have to goof around like I did....LOL just link it up here:
