"She Loved to Color"
Although I've continued to participate in the Documented Life Project, it was a nice change of pace to create a postcard for a private swap. I haven't created a new digital image in ages, so it was fun to sit down for an afternoon to "colorize" a black and white photo of a little girl. First, I digitally enhanced the picture, and then I poured on the mixed media.
Since I like to keep copies of my artwork, I scanned the finished piece to add to my file; however, the most interesting thing happened: The little crocheted flower at the bottom of the postcard was read by two scanners as being "yellow", when it's actually a very bright and vibrant orange!!!
Week #4's DLP Challenge
Here's a close-up peek at a small section of Week #4's Documented Life prompt to add a secret message, color to your page and leave one word showing. My page began with a color copy of an old page from my gratitude journal. How fitting that the word left "uncovered" is "gratitude"! I've many things to be grateful for! You can see all of my Documented Life pages if you visit my Flickr account. (Click here to go to the "Set" page!)
Several members of the Documented Life group have asked me to think about doing a tutorial. I'm entertaining the idea and welcome your thoughts and comments about what you'd like to see me share.
Wishing you a bright and very colorful day!
