Photos, Overlays, and Textures Oh My
I’ve been playing more with textures and overlays on my photos. I haven’t been able to take any new photos, but I have a lot of past photos that are great to mess around with.
I love this one that is two images of ravens from Valley of Fire. I blended the two, then added a texture to the top.
This is from there too. I liked this one in black and white, then added a nice grungy texture.
I took a picture of this beaded bag of mine. I had to play around and find a raven photo that would work with it. Then added a texture to the top.
This photo is from the desert last winter. The overlay really added something to this image.
And this horse photo was one of my first tries at adding textures. I think I’ve learned just a little bit more since, but I still like this one.
Al has some ideas that involve encaustic wax, my photos, and mixed media art for the art shows this summer. I’m excited to see what we come up with. These layered photos are going to be the base for the ideas.
And I have most excellent news. I finally got Torrey to the vet yesterday to have the ACL rechecked. It it still a little bit loose, but we can resume our regular walking. Horray! She still can’t play frisbee, but the vet said if she keeps improving, she will be a frisbee dog again several months down the line. And no more lifting her in and out of the RV. Which is way good news.
