This week our theme is NUMBERS. I made the background "checkerboard" (none of it makes sense) and the lady on pointe is from e-vint.com (coloured and altered).

I made a Photoshop brush from a Googled vintage image which is overlaid on to a background made from an old dictionary page with some colour added. I added some tinting with a touch of whites and sepias to help achieve a contrast. A background paper by Berna Datema was also used. Don't throw out your old dictionaries and books. They make great starting points for artwork.

I love art journals and I so admire the mixed media artists who create the wonderful artwork. It's fun to try to do it in digital art but I am the first one to admit that it's not quite the same (to state the obvious).
I painted the lady in artrage and scanned the dictionary definition of FATE and cut and pasted it. I also painted the fringe at the top. Background and splatters by Creativewings Designs. Paper flowers by Birgit Kerr.

The image (originally sepia) was coloured and altered. Googled papers used in box and "fringe" at top. I made the cat from cut and pasted pieces from a paper background by Createwings Designs. The flower brushes are by Birgit Kerr. The background by Captive Visions. Other stamps by Rosey Posey.
