If you've been following along on my blog, you already know that I'm hosting Quirkshop 101 at Scrapbookgraphics. It's a six-week workshop aimed at teaching traditional digiscrappers how to incorporate artistic techniques into their layouts.
This week, we're looking at all of the tools available in Photoshop -- filters, actions, styles and blending modes -- and how you can combine them to artistic effect. I've been meaning to do a piece of artwork for one of my nieces, a high school sophomore and a real sweetie. Since one of this week's workshop assignments was to do a piece of art, I finally got motivated enough to pull out her photo and begin blending, filtering, and erasing. Here's the result:
Materials by Sausan. Blended papers from her Dream On and Rose's Passion kits. Torn paper and wings from Dream On. Wordart from Stitched Words, and button from Lil' Jake.
