Digital Art

I am a baby beginner at this.  To be fair I've had Photoshop 7 for years and all I've ever really done is use it to resize photos.  Maybe I've been a bit overwhelmed by it?  No matter, I found a great Youtube clip about using masque tools and layers in Pixlr, the online editing tool that is very similar to PS) and I've been playing ever since.  It's how I made the images I've used on my domino pendants and I made a couple of cards recently too this way.  The tutorial, here, combined with this one about making digital stamps have made me feel a little more confident and so I want to explore this genre further....

Anyhow, here are some of the images I've altered.  All of the images are royalty free and available on the web.


(The above pic has become a domino pendant for my daughter - she loves her new pet gerbil so I thought this was cute)

As I say, I'm a baby beginner.  All I can do is continue to play and see what comes out.

In the meantime I appear to have bought a couple of empty cigar boxes on an auction site - I was inspired by this page to have a go at making some altered cigar box bags.....
