Hi ho my lovelies, I’ve been mucking about with the GIMP lately and was inspired tonight to use my own photographs to create a spacey landscape. This is the first draft of an as-yet-unnamed digital work. There is more work to do on it, but it’s a start. For the landscape, I used a photo […]Read More WIP Spacey Digital Art
The Gimp-speriments continue. I have a pebbly obsession. I like them. Fortunately, I can now virtually pick them up with my camera. And merge them with one of my journal pages. I like the pebble texture. It almost looks like it’s the paper. What are your experiments? Leave me a comment and tell […]Read More Pebble Girl
I’m still learning about all the Gimp tools and what they do. To be honest, I’m not making a scientific study of photography, the physics, or stuff like that. I’m just interested in composition and what I like. I approach photography more like painting, kinda silly, but there it is. I merged a couple of […]Read More Another Digital Buddha
I wish Happy Holidays and artsy-craftsy New Year to you and yours. Thank you so much for stopping by, reading my blog and leaving comments. Cheers, my lovelies!Read More Happy Holidays!
The assignment for Week 3 of Tam’s Digital Dreams was to create a simple whimsy page with a positive slogan. I thought about drawing something new, possibly one of my quirky animals, but what came to mind was Bunny Girl, who I drew in one my journals a couple months ago. I liked her so […]Read More Digital Dreams Week 3 Homework
I’ve been struggling with the GIMP for years. Last week, I signed up for Tam’s Digital Dreams class. Even though she uses Photoshop, I have used PS in the past and know that the GIMP is very similar. I’m on Week 2 and have already learned so much that is worth far more than the […]Read More I’ve gone mad with GIMP power!
I have been toying with photo manipulation for a while, originally in the GIMP. Here is one of my first attempts, the merging of three of my photos: one of our Buddha statues and two images from a visit to the Portland Chinese Garden. I kind of like it, but don’t think it’s quite there and […]Read More Digital Buddha
I found a phone app called photo blender that, you guessed it, allows you to merge 2 photos. This was my first attempt using 2 of my gals drawn by me for Jane Davenport’s Express Yourself class, edited with Photo Blender, Pixlr-o-matic, and Aviary. I am enjoying exploring ways to recycle my various creations. Edited […]Read More Double Exposure
I have one themed journal, which started its life back in my direct sales days. It was an affirmation journal, filled with positive quotes, mostly from my O Magazine reading days, my favorite stamps, quotes, and the like. At the time, I glued my magazine pages down with whatever glue stick was handy. Many of […]Read More I Hope You Dance
