Combining the elements

I’ve been piling up the gelli prints, writing and drawing in my journals, and playing with photos. So the next step was to combine some of it in Photoshop. This is fairly small, and has about 7 layers. I’m slowly learning to do more in Photoshop but it’s still feels a bit foreign to me. I need to head over the Michelle Ward’s blog and reread her information about making digital brushes masks – she’s an awesome teacher and incredibly generous with  her knowledge.

  1. Beautiful work. It is a long journey that you are on, but not a lonely one. Keep your mum warmly in your heart, she is still with you.

    A friend passed these words on to me recently, and as your mum was also your friend maybe they apply:

    “When you part from your friend, you grieve not; for that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain.”

    He also says…. “… in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.”
