I've been playing with Photoshop and the Encaustic painting I did in class Tuesday. This is Tim's stamp on Grungeboard that was added to the painting along with a piece of ephemera and some scribbles in photoshop. The colors are really this bright. Not my usual choice, but fun.

I was of course trying to figure out how to "vintage " them down! It was a fun night. None of the Artist's there had heard of Grungeboard, of course, but they did love the man.

How could you not love "the man in the rain" stamp?

  2. I just signed up for the 30 day trial for photoshop and am struggling with it. If I buy it, I'm gonna have to take a class. I really wanted it to help sharpen and smooth old photos but haven't had a huge amount of success, a little.

    This piece is wonderful! I love the image AND background. So mysterious! I love the cool and warm color contrast too. And, I am in drawn in by the window - wanna know if that guy's peekin' - maybe longing for whatever a family is doing inside all snug and warm on a rainy night ... there's a story there.

    I glittered something today! I love it, I stink at it, but I am expanding horizons. I bet Emma can use glitter better than I. Back to making "awt"!
