Art Creations Friday gave us a background to use in our artwork this week and in the spirit of playing with Photoshop and learning by trial and error (a lot of errors)… I came up with this:


I used a mixture of images that seemed to connect – hence the she-wolf, the moon and an old photo from my collection. I also messed about with the grassy brush to suggest vast empty space with the wind blowing across the plains. Well, that was the general idea in my head!

Nick took pity on me again and helped with the oval shape and showed me vector/mask stuff. It was not long ago and thank goodness I made a note because heaven knows if I’d ever find that bit again without banging the keyboard!

I do hope that I shall be able to make time to learn more about digital art when we’ve moved… maybe this winter?! 🙂

  5. FASCINATING piece, WOW!!

  6. Wow! Thi bleakness of this piece is is very powerful. The steely grays add so much to its austere mood, Rosie.


  7. Great digital work, I am still learning 🙂 and sometimes I never now how I did it 🙂

  8. This is a very thought-provoking card, Rosie…well done! Love what you have done with this background. Love the inspiration we get from Art Creations, don’t you? Hugs, Gayle.

  9. It certainly is thought-provoking and it tells a story. I love the images you have used – pioneers or people down on their luck in the Great Depression. There is such a lot to see in your picture. Great work.
