Each weekend, starting Friday evening, 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.
Some time after the 52nd Weekend Freebie this site will be in maintenance mode. At this point, I’m not sure how many days it will be down, but I’ll try and get it back up and running as soon as possible!
While trying to re-create the background image from my Cherita post, long story, I ended up creating a new piece. It started with flipping the background image vertically and horizontally, changing the blend mode to “negation” and lowering the opacity to 90%. I liked the tropical look it was taking on.
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.
I’ve been fascinated watching people on YouTube create Art Journals. Inspired by their creations, I thought I’d try my hand on a digital mixed media look. This is what I came up with as an eCard for my step-fathers birthday (I left off the last piece with his name). Follow along as I show you step-by-step how I created this image.
