Swan Love Pyramid

FRONT VIEW SIDE VIEW IMAGE DIGITALLY COLORED CONVERTED to Oil Painting by Pattie Today's creation is my DT card for Pattie's Creations Challenge #49 with the theme of 'Animals or Insects'. I chose the image titled 'Swan Love' and made a Pyramid card. I had my sister, Pattie, convert the colored image to an oil painting effect in her Adobe Photoshop program. It's a favorite effect of mine. The DP is a free image from Free Vintage DigiStamps. It had color in it, but I converted it to a Black and White. We have a wedding coming up in November, so I'll save this for that occasion.

Summertime Beach Scene

Today's theme for Pattie's Creations challenge #48 is Summertime. I altered a Journal that had a travel theme to it, and I had found it at Walmart for a dollar months ago. I bought a few of them and this is the first one that I used. I digitally colored the images, yes images, there are 4 separate images used to create a Summertime Beach Scene. They are titled: 'Beach Pattieboop' (I removed the beach umbrella), 'Sun with Face', 'Sand Castle', and 'Allie in Fishbowl' (I removed the fishbowl). Visit Pattie's shop here! Needless to say this did take me a long time to create. Once I had all of my images merged, I colored it in with fills, patterns, and gradients. I did some minimal highlighting in areas for effect. The DP was also digitally created from a pattern. Finally, the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps that I put some purple glitter in areas of the beach ball. I did leave the spine of the journal uncovered, since the color goes well with …

TBC - Dragonflies

Tissue Box Cover - Dragonflies Our niece, Gina, wanted a theme to match her bedroom in her completely re-built summer home. It had been destroyed by Hurricane Irene last year, so it was completely demolished and built new with more bedrooms and bathrooms for summer rental. Her color scheme is brown, cream, and a sort of sage greenish blue. She also wanted dragonflies. My sister, Pattie of Pattie's Creations, designed an image that I fell in love with. I digitally colored it and then emailed it to Pattie to convert it to an oil painting effect. It looks great! Here's an additional view of the lid, the DP that I created, and the oil painting image (watermarked). Sometimes my photos have color variations, even though I use professional lighting, which is why I'm posting the DP and image. I also added 4 punched dragonflies to the lid for effect.
