goofing with fantasy
I'm still pretty awkward with this kind of edit, but having a new baby in the house in inspirational. I know this is a pretty clumsy attempt, but I kind of like it and I can come back when I get better and both cringe and feel proud. Since I spent a fair amount of time (that could have been spent on SLEEPING or CLEANING or even SEWING (two baby quilts in s l o w progress) playing with this I figured I'd put it up. Layers and brushes- of course I cut the kids out from the background. Added sky in a layer below, then trees and grasses. Butterflies went below and on top, then the fairies on top. Added the glow edge for a frame, and a glow layer style to soften it all up. Lots of blur brush on edges.
I guess this is like scrap booking without glue? I confess, I like it because I can sit and work on it, I don't have to get up and hunt or go to the store for stuff I don't have- I can just search for brushes and images online. So, let me give credit to Midnightstouch Brushes, Linda Rae from Deviant art for her grass brushes, and unfortunately I don't have the name of the fairy artist- the rest of the brushes came with photoshop elements.
Time to get up and move......to the kitchen, for food!
