I recently found out about Cherita‘s from Mary, at Cactus Haiku, last month. Since I like writing the occasional haiku, I thought I’d try writing a cherita. I had forgotten about trying to write one, when Mary asked me yesterday if I had written one yet. I told her when my image was finished I was going to give it a try. Well, here is my first attempt.
This year I’ve started a new post category, Friday Freebie. Every Friday I will be giving away something for free; to start it might only be textures, but as I get more into (digital) mixed media, it might be digital stencils, digital brushes, or even an image that you can use. I hope that you enjoy creating with the freebies.
Today’s freebie was created using Spray Inks on Mixed Media paper. Actually, the texture is a scanned baby wipe that I used to clean up the overspray. The bonus freebie was created by setting my ink colored stencil, ink side down, on a wet baby wipe. I scanned
Here it is…another Friday, another Freebie. Today’s texture is some worn wood grain in Black and White. There are two ways you can use the texture…by blending it with your image, or (and I’ve been playing around with this lately) you can use it as a clipping mask.
This weeks Photo Challenge, Silence, asks us to “show what silence looks like.” The haiku expresses my feelings on this part of a small, neighborhood park. I prefer walking my little dog around the park when we are pretty much the only ones there. Nothing but silence…with the occasional birds chirping, or some ground squirrels signaling danger to the other squirrels in the area.
