I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve posted here! You know how we sometimes go through rough patches in our lives? Well, 2016 was a humdinger for me with a lot of challenges: personal loss, health issues, life questions, and business learning lessons. It is what it is but when we get through those turbulent times, we can come out stronger and clearer. Throughout this time, I’ve continued creating art, researching, learning, and constantly collecting glorious ephemera. It was an introspective time, but 2017 has brought a shift to clarity and energy and boy do I have things to share with you!
This rose was a photograph I took of a Betty Boop Rose. I then used the Alien Skin’s Snap Art filter (the Stylized presets edited a little.) I then used a texture, vintage wallpaper, a vintage french script brush and various grunge brushes to create the background. (A lot of the grunge brushes and the vintage script available on French Kiss, some of the elements not yet available.) I think this design will be fun for a zip pouch.
This was the original photograph with the background cut out in Photoshop.
My garden is filled with roses right now and I can’t wait to start photographing again! I’ll be resuming the tutorials on photographing plants for design. Happy creating, everyone.
