Hi ho, art friends. I've been flitting around with my art projects lately. A little art journaling, a little junk journaling, a little photocolaging. Today, I took out a couple dolls, took some photos and created this nice character study for another project I'm working on. This is my Dollshe IM Hound, open eyed. I … Continue reading Technomage Hound
Hi art friends, Way back in March, I signed up for Sebastian Michael's Photoshop Artistry Grunge class. I've learned a ton of techniques, which you may have noticed in my weekly posts. I've had to translate his techniques from the Adobe products into Gimp and digiKam. So far, I've been able to take nearly everything … Continue reading Gone to seed vers 3
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 … Continue reading 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 … Continue reading 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 … Continue reading 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!

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 … Continue reading 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 … Continue reading 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 … Continue reading Digital Buddha
