Not sure if I've posted this one before but I found a little time last week to catch up with Kim Klassen's Art of Texture class. This peonie photo (courtesy of Kim) above started out as a bright, bold image and has been softened into this subtle, delicate flower.
This is a Thai Buddha statue that I have in my conservatory that I have been wanting to have a play with in Photoshop for ages. I cropped the original image down and inverted it before applying some colour adjustment layers and a texture.
This 'Speedy Sheep' was a quick, fun project from Kim and was very easy to achieve with just a few adjustments.
Next, this is the famous 'Roger's Door' in St Ives which is actually a lovely flaking green colour. With Kim's help the door has been changed to red, although I think I prefer the original patina.
This little angel came from a graveyard near us and is my own effort. I cropped the image, blurred the background, added a texture and text and stamped a few flowers. The possibilities with Photoshop are endless.
I'd like to thank everyone who has left messages or emailed me with friendly and supportive words about my mum. Sadly she has been having a really difficult time since we left her at her own home and is now in hospital, hopefully just for a few days, while they check out what is going on. Her confusion is terrible and almost complete, to the point where she didn't know who I was when I spoke to her on the phone last night, even though she had asked the nurse to call me. I am hoping that it is just worse because she is out of her home environment but I am very fearful for her. We are taking each day as it comes and hoping.
We have had a very low key Valentine's night tonight and SH cooked tea (again) and made a lovely ice creamy, apple ricey, white chocolatey dessert. He knows how to win a girl's heart :-) I hope you've all enjoyed a Happy Valentine's Day with someone you love and care about.
