soartful challenge-March 20, 2010
For this week's challenge we are provided with a lovely vintage sketch. I will admit that I had no idea where to go with this image....So, I began messing around with PS brushes, creating a background using the colors in the parasol and the gray background. I added one of my favorite textures, a freebie I've had for a long time, of roses and bits of text glazed with pink, and a texture from SkeketalMess for some color around the edges.
I really was in a reverie all afternoon, creating this. I guess it's one of those "organic" pieces, that just grows into itself.
I like it a lot. I'd love to know what you think.
