it was nice to receive this wonderful art and gift certificate
in the mail
from my friend ludgera
( thanks lu, i will be off today to aboveground!)
ludgera, who's in california
taking a bookmaking class
needed some help editing and manipulating
her photos for class
above, one of the finished projects i did
which lu stitched to the burlap
and sent as a thank-you card
i loved the challenge
working with someone elses photos
it gives me a new perspective on
something i might not have considered
she sent me the photo above and below
and asked to add them together
so i altered them a bit in ps playing with the brightness/contrast opacity and using the b/w feature ( i tried lots of filters as well but lost a lot of the detail in both photos)
i then decided to take it a little bit further i added a warm carmel color and used the "overlay" blending mode then the text from an old postcard using the "screen" blending mode and finally a texture i found at shadow house creations and set the blending mode to "darken"
and then the finished project! which of course i didn't stop there for fun i inverted it, tried on a few filters duplicated it and added a lighting feature and played with the blending modes again you can go on forever!!!
