Mixing it up a bit – Digital Tweaking!
Some of you already know that I was so Hand-coloring phobic last year and my coloring was all done digitally. Here’s a mixed piece I did in the wee hours of this morning.
The Original Image was colored by hand and then I imported it into my computer to watermark it ….and got a bit carried away lol. Now if you are going to do this, I recommend Scanning your image in. I wasn’t planning to do this… so mine was just from a photograph, but you get the idea.
One of the things I love about my new Epson Eco Tank printer, is not having to worry about printing out large full color images… and running out of ink LOL.
Just a wave of the magic wand, drop shadow, and some of the presets like add borders and texture effects… and Bingo!!… your image is now framed and ready to print.
- Image – Cute as a Button “Moving Day” colored with Chameleon Pens, Ranger Distress Pens and Zig Memory System writers. Printed on 110lb card stock
- Digital Addons – I worked in my trusty old Jasc Paint Shop Pro7, it’s a great program for beginners and you can still pick up a copy on Ebay at a decent price now and then.
Don’t be afraid to mix your techniques and ideas when crafting… it’s a lot of fun and handy when you don’t have the physical papers, or embellishments at hand.
