It's all really interesting to me so I have decided to do a little art project creating imagery that includes symbolism that reflects me as a person. Instead of listing a number of qualities with words, I am going to use symbols to sort of tell the story of me.
So this is the first image in my "personal symbolism series". I printed this image (6" x 6") on top of copies of previously created artwork. Layer, layer, layer!!! I really love how the colors just pop through the design and creates a different look with each background.
I've got a whole bunch of new ideas swarming around in my head and I spent the entire day exploring one single image. First I drew a turtle shell then scanned it into Photoshop Elements 10 and manipulated the heck out of it! Here is a sneak peak as I'm not exactly sure how I will use the new imagery yet.
I am putting together imagery to use during the Far Away Places workshop with Michelle Ward and Lynne Perrella that I will be attending May 10-12. These are "Ancient Tiles" that I'm creating to use in the workshop as I create my fantasy far away place. I'm really excited about it!!! I think I have been so tied up with other projects that I really missed all of my digital play so I totally let loose yesterday and it was a very fruitful day!
Starting Monday, I will be all absorbed in the on-line workshop I am taking called the Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design! This workshop is going to change my life :)
Have a wonderful weekend!
