The Butterfly man…

I’m definitely going through a strange, busy and ultimately satisfying phase at the moment. The strange is that I am not blogging quite as often, not taking part in as many challenges; the busy is that I am taking 2 classes at the same time… Quinn MacDonald’s Raw Art Journalling  and Shwe Khit’s digital art class, Sweetened Simplicity. These 2 are pretty much polar opposites – Quinn’s being more physical, writing words, creating art in a more traditional way – and Shwe is both a traditional and a digital artist, from whom I am learning some of the finer points of Photoshop creativity. So – a complete journey of discovery!

The ultimately satisfying phase is what I am able to do when I combine those two… Here’s another image transfer and I struggled with him. The image was taken from a glossy Resort guide, which was very high quality and very difficult to work with. I only got him to show up because I am wily and persistent (and I hate waste!!). So here’s the “before” pic:

And, now, using the inspiration of the “story” guidelines to the left, and some of the tools I have discovered recently…

For Take a Word this week…

And now I must go do the “real-life”, mundane stuff of life!! 🙂

  1. Aaaahhhhh… you are going hybride!!! Fantastic combination you made here Rosie! Love the image of the man too, the expression on HIS face is wonderful!

  2. Thanks Marit! I like hybrid… using my own works digitally gives me a sense of “wholeness”… 😉

  3. great take on the challenge, it’s wonderful!

  4. I LOVE that you’re combining the best of both creative worlds in your pages, Marit! Enjoy your classes. Blogging will always be there for you. You’ve got to create while your Muse is whispering!!! Hugs, Terri xoxo

  5. Your butterfly man is so beautifully surreal! I can imagine a world of fantasy wrapped around him! He is not so much on top of your background, but within it! Very beautifully done, Rosie!

  6. Rosie, I am in awe of this piece. It is superb in every way. I hope get lost in the process more often. Fantastic artwork.
