Take a Word Challenge - Cool Colours

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.

Sunday Postcard Art - Art Journal Postcard

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.
