What you have…

metallic pumpkinOne of my photos from this past Saturday. I was touched by Kim Klassen’s postings, and as I looked through some old journal quotes, this one struck me as apropos for this week’s Texture Tuesday. I like to write down quotes as I read books, and this one is from The Forgotten Garden.

Photoshop Artistry Challenge

PA-Challenge-1-Sample-2-copyThis is my entry for the first challenge for Photoshop Artistry. I used a photo from my garden and one I set up in my studio. For the challenge we were to use one to two of our own images; a Film Edge Effect, and two of Kim Klassen’s textures. We were then to paint with colored light, a technique taught in the class. I chose to bring out some of the rust tones and turquoise from the oxidized copper heart. I added a bit of those colors to the edge using the same effect. although the roses image that is overlaid on top on the main image isn’t technically a landscape, it was taken outdoors in my yard.¬† Check out the class at www.photoshopgrunge.com.

Oops! Forgot to use the vector image as stated in the challenge… will have to redo….
