Just loving Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen . Sooooo cool what you can do with your photos .Its still very basic what I cna do ....but here's this week's entry using her Simplicity texture at 100 % on Grain Merge (the top one ) and on Saturation on the bottom one.
The frames are provide by this talented lady Linneas
I can hardly wait til I can do more but I I have to make sure I keep painting ....so easy to get distracted when your an artist lol !
I'm really enjoying it but am definitely photography challenged ...much more comfortable with a paintbrush ! Some of the entries are amazing ! But I really want to learn how to add textures and digital work to my paintings, so,
persevere, I will !
I haven't got the soft blended look I'd like , I'm sure it will take alot of trial and error. Anyway, the entry had to be have something to do with a story and inlcude on of Kim's textures.
The above one has the 123 texture at dodge 29 %
and the next one has the same texture with value .
Enjoy these words of inspiration , however they work for you . I plan on adding angel messages weekly to my blog to inspire, uplift, or support so please check back.
This message is particularly meaningful to me . After being at the lowest point in my life after my sweetheart passed, it was a devestating struggle to get myself back in the land of the living again. I know that I acted very robotic like and made sure I took care of my kids needs ....but to really get back into life and feel some joy was a huge challenge. I couldnt go to grief support groups because I couldnt be with people.....way too fragile. I went to a grief counselor but I ended up counselling her.
No, my growth and healing began by exploring myself and what perceptions I had about life, life after death, God, Angelic help .......the whole shebang .
Although it is a never ending journey and I still continue to work through much grief, laughter has come back into my life again and I did find the answers I needed ....and a whole lot more surprises within myself too ! Sometimes I think its like going down Alice in Wonderland's rabbit hole ......
I've just stumbled upon "Texture Tuesdays " with Kim Klassen ...........yes some of us are a little slower than others (wink, wink )
Anyway, this is my first little project using a warm sunny texture that she provided us with. Although it's a far cry from what I'd like to be able to do , I had lots of fun playing around........but I got absolutely nothing else done tonight.
You can get totally carried away playing around in Photoshop and have no idea where the time went !
NB: Whoops .....just figured out I must have brought up the wrong Texture Tuesday ( Lord knows how : ) Oh well, I'll get it right next week !
She's chosen the word BALANCE which is definitely a major goal for me this year after everything that I've been through in the last two years.
But my word for 2012 is LOVE . As my journey has unfolded that is the one thing that is abundantly clear to me , that I am soooooo blessed to have LOVE all around me....from my kids, from my friends from my colleagues......and from the angels ; )
And I am a true believer in the more you give love the more you receive.
So, the above painting is one that I did that reflects my word for 2012 and beyond. ....with love .... all things are possible.
