Its been cold and I haven’t been getting a decent uninterrupted nights sleep for a while now, and that impacts severely on my creative energy. Even so we soldier on, if for no other reason that to keep learning new skills.
The Bellydancer was edited in Topaz impression and a disco ball texture layer applied.
Grumpy Seagull was made extra dark and grumpy looking – he has just had a bath and not yet had a chance to comb his hair yet 🙂 This is of my person favourite images.
My apricot tree has all of a sudden burst into pink blossom, always reliable first sign that spring is on its way. I had this idea about blending some blossom images into some text but couldn’t quite pull it off, so here is the sour cherry blossom from my garden providing the background, with the bluebells from Hagley Park (with a slight painted touch from Impression) as the texture for the letters.
Important PS tip I learned today – if you want to overlay an image over text so the text picks up the image (like I have done here) put the image ABOVE the typography layer and then apply a clipping mask – really doesn’t work the other way around!
Three quite different images with different techniques used to create them.
