For the background on this image, I used a copy of an altered photo I had done in Artful Journaling class. It was a photo I took on a nature walk in Hawaii several years ago, which I altered using bleach, sandpaper, and who knows what else. The flowers were "stamped" on the background using the digital brush I made last week from my flower drawing. I then applied a beveled effect to the flowers to make them stand out.
I'm finding that all this Photoshop experimentation is refueling my regular (non-digital) art-journaling creativity. Often, after I tear myself away from the computer, I'm in the mood to cut, paste, glue, and draw. Who knew?
