Like many of you, I've set a few goals - some are fairly loose - but the general idea is to grow my artistic skills and expand my knowledge. My plans include improving my drawing skills with regular practice (will try using prompts from Everyday Matters), improve my photographic skills, and finally play and experiment and learn with my art journal and collage/mixed media efforts. Sounds like fun, right?!
To start the new year, Kim Klassen is easing us back into the flow with a simple prompt for Texture Tuesday - use one of her textures on a photo. Since she offers so many free ones (thanks Kim!), that's pretty easy. For this photo I added posterize edges, copied it in overlay mode at 58%, copied it again in difference mode at 37%, then added TWO of Kim's textures: Grunge, overlay at 32% and Cosmo, multiply at 80%.
I'm off to finish packing up Christmas decorations and then pull out my sketch pad. Because I want to practice sketching every day. I do. I can. I will! :)
I'm also adding this to Sweet Shot Tuesday and Tuesday Tips and Pics (both for the first time). I found these two sites from Kathy at You'll Shoot Your Eye Out (love her photos!)
