PAF

I haven't participated in a long time, but Fridays are Photo Art Friday over at Bonnie's Pixel Dust Photo Art and to start the new year she suggested using our 'word-of-the-year' as a starting point. Since I actually chose one of those and drew it, I decided to use it in creating a bit of digital art.


I started by using the cutout from my lettering project and added layer upon layer - bits from my photos and collages and from some scrapbooking elements.....all thrown together, tweaked and manipulated til I came up with this.....don't think it's the best digital thing I've ever done, but I'm a little out of practice - it'll get better!

As I worked on this, the digital manipulation ideas and tools starting returning and I remember how much I enjoy experimenting with it - but oh my goodness, there's just not enough time in the day to do everything I love to do.  How to choose?  I guess I'll just work on what I feel like doing at the moment and other stuff can wait, right?  Collaging and mail art and mixed media exploration will still be there .......

  5. I know I know you want to do everything!!! You seem like you have a pretty good handle on PSE, mine is so rudimentary but you have to pick and choose right? Hanna is tempting me though----want to jump into that 365 collage project too - can't wait to see all of yours. xox

  7. There are so many creative activities available - but I guess we do have to 'focus' on what we really want to do. Thanks for sharing Terrie.

  8. I love what you did with your word, very creative. I haven't participated in PAF for a long time either. Lack of time, so much else to do. Have a wonderful 2013, I like your word.

  9. That's a great word, and it's in FOCUS, too. Happy belated New Year. I'm having trouble with blogger and am glad I was finally able to get to your blog.

  10. Focus is an admirable word for the beginning of a New Year! It's exciting to look forward to all it's possibilities. I like your piece, the word itself is really fun with the way you drew in the patterns. I like the cheery feel it has. Happy New Year!

  11. This is quite a wonderful word, Terrie. And like Enough,it is one that will surely guide you and gently.

    We have so many things we want to DO or TRY or EXPLORE; how DO we determine where to Focus or when to say Enough?!

    I am glad to BE walking this road with you in 2013.
