Tutorial: Extending a Photo With a Personal Touch

I promised to post some free tutorials here, and this is the first one. In 2015 an art journal page of mine was published in the Book Art Journal Kickstarter, Published by North Light. The publisher later asked each artist featured in the book to submit a photo tutorial about the technique they used in their art piece.

I wrote about extending a photo with a personal touch.  This involves placing a photo on a journal page and extending the image (e.g., scenery) onto the surrounding page with paint, colored pencils, markers, pen and ink, etc.

My tutorial was published on the Create Mixed Media blog, and later shared by the Cloth Paper Scissors blog. You can find it at http://www.createmixedmedia.com/make/extending-a-photo-with-personal-touch . Below are two before-and-after photos from the tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by!
