Exercising Creativity with Erica Gunter
I know there are lots of people out there who are "full up" with work. We get bogged down with bids, invoices and lots of "stuff."
But, then, a few moments surface where you can do anything you want. Here's where I went with those moments yesterday.
I took a full color image of Erica and subdued the color pallette, then copied and pasted a photo I'd done of a glass pane sprayed with shellac and scuffed and scratched. The scratch and scuff addition went on its own layer at 30-40% opacity. I also made a layer mask, filled it with black and erased the black where I wanted the scratch and scuff to show through.
It's like magic!
I wonder if I can do it again tomorrow or Wednesday.
