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!
