Imagine….Childhood ... how I made it.
Background: scanned image of a sheet of paper that I rusted, placed a ‘differnce’ filter to change the colour. Used a jagged eraser tool to rough the edges.
Little girl: Scanned image from a children’s story book. Ipod drawn in with fine brush tool.
Pods: made with the ‘eliptical marquee tool’. Added a layer style “bevel and emboss”. Used different brush tools to get the images onto the surface of the Pods. Filter>render>lens flare>zoom onto each pod. Tails of the pods are different brush tools.
In large pod a brush tool “tree” shape was used for dark images, layer copied, flipped vertical and transformed with opacity set at 65% to form a shadow.
Final touch was on background layer, filter>render>lens flare>movie prime, for the blue lines.
Lower left corner .. many clicks with brush tool.
Text: Bleeding cowboy.
This piece was made with many layers, more than 25, so I could have control of what I actually wanted in the image.
Childhood Imagination 4
Same image as Imagine… For this result I used a photoshop Action: Out of Bounds which I download at PanosFX.com I've never tried this before.
It was mentioned on Rian’s blog http://freubel-art.blogspot.com/that she used for the ‘cube’ to make a recent image…. So I went looking and found a whole manner of stuff on this site… what fun I have had! Thanks, Rian!!

I am sure you all know me by now and I like to take the challenge to beyond what is 'normal'(?)!
This is another one of those that just 'tickled my fancy'!
I knew that there would be many 'pretty' works this week.... but how I loved it when MORTICIA from THE ADDAMS FAMILY received her roses and immedialtly cut the blooms off!
Hope it really 'tickles your fancy'!!
Have lots of laughs on me with this one!

Background image comes from a visit to Lake Mungo in Southern Australia and skeletons from a very old drawing book. Look at it philosophically!!

It is the count of people lost in the horrific fires in Victoriaq, Australia, in February 2009. Our son and his young family lost all but what they stood up in. If you would like to see more of the exhibition visit.... www.glenysmann.viviti.com go to "Consequences Exhibition".

I used two images of sunlight on the beach, placed them on top of each other, changed the transparency of the top one and added filters.... all done in Photoshop. I do hope that you enjoy my take on "Back to Nature".

I have set out the 'recipe' here... free for all to experiment with and to use.... just a thanks on-line would be appreciated, after you have tried it!
Whilst you are on the page to get the rust recipe, have a look at the "Works on Paper" and you can see just how I have used the rust solution for these exhibiton pieces.
Have fun as I have had over the last 20 years using this non complicated way of getting 'rust'!!
The art work here is a book made from rusted paper, sticks that also went through the rust bath and leaves... all placed into a box that I constructed from 'foam core board' then dipped into the solution.... you never know what you are going to get!

Now why does that not surprise you, I hear you say!!
My relationship is with.. mother nature, close macro photography and old films.... all the things that are very dear to my heart and my way of creating. I do hope you enjoy the macro images of a beautiful Australian eucalypt blossom.
