Delving into the world of photo manipulation

As a branch off from taking photographs, I have become more interested in the world of digital art/photo manipulation. There's just something about a fantasy/surreal picture that speaks to the artist in me, plus its always fun fun to learn something new! I've been practicing with some photoshop tutorials on composites with stock photos just to see how things work in photoshop (I fear I will never learn everything this program has to offer). After doing about 3 tutorials over the past week, I decided to try out something using my own photos and myself as one of them. It's by no means perfect, and there are things about it like shadows that frustrated me to no end that I couldn't figure out how to fix, but when all said and done, I kind of like it!


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Coming back from a Creative Hiatus!

It's been well over a year since I made a card and I must say I missed it! Perhaps a bit too long of a break as I completely forgot the dimensions of a regular card! After I refreshed my memory on that one, I discovered that most of my ink pads had long dried up; that was a disappointment to say the least. After some scrounging around, I managed to find a black ink pad that wasn't dried out and some non-dusty paper lol. My stamp collection has been unloved for a while too, so I picked a set that I hadn't even opened yet and came up with this simple card for the CASE this Sketch Challenge.





Hopefully this restart to my card making! Loved getting my fingers inky again!

Have a great day and happy crafting!
Julie
