It was so hard to pick five words that would be all encompassing of what I wanted to be remembered for...because each time I would decide on one, it seemed so trite and superficial.
Finally I gave in and picked the ones that I hope best describes me...and I hope that my family and friends see these qualities in me.
...as I'm fighting a nasty cold and just didn't have the energy to dig out my paints, inks or pencils, I decided to take a different route for this month's Mixed Media Monday's Creative Dare.
I started with a scanned Gelli print Ghost print/ cleanup paper. I liked the colors and the texture and thought it would be perfect for what I was envisioning.
I first downloaded it to my iPad and using Adobe Ideas I added to the faint orange wash at the top and gave it the beginning of the glowing sun. The light wispy brown tendrils and a few seeds/berries were added...but they felt too one dimensional.
...so then I pulled out my laptop and opened it up in Photoshop, where I added some more seeds/berries with some added depth and dimension. I added some masking tape from a digital scrapbook kit and added my words.
I then finished up the glow of the sun with some Photoshop brushwork and called it done.
So now I'm going to post my link to Mixed Media Mondays and call it a night. I'll also be linking up to Carolyn Dube's Colorful Gelli Print Party for May.
Thanks for stopping by my little blog and I hope you take the time to do something creative every day...
