January Art Journalers - Altered Photo

affirmations journal - title to be determined when journaled :>

The prompt today for Misty's Jan. Art Journalers is 'altered photo'. I was organizing my studio today and came across one of my fave magazines Cloth, Paper, Scissors and remembered that there was an article in there about altering photos digitally. Do you have the Jan./ Feb. issue? Well....let me tell you about this feature article in the Workshop section by my friend, Chrysti Hydeck (whom I had the pleasure of meeting in person at the inaugural ZNE art retreat in Cali last year, her work is stunning). This article ROCKS! If you haven't done much in the way of digital art, you must give her step-by-steps a try.

This photo is from my private collection and was taken in Michigan about 2 years ago. The aged/spotted portion of it is a manipulated photo of an old cookie sheet that I was ready to toss, no kidding! Anyhow, Chrysti's instructions were super easy to follow with lots of variations to help you personalize your own work.

Okay, I'm off to do a print of this and work it into a journal page......
