Digital Art - No Star is ever lost and Free on Friday
When I started this piece, I wanted to use something I used in my tutorial the other day. I also wanted to use a paint spray that I had photographed, beyond that I had nothing specific in mind. I began by placing the negative version of the cycle in place, a second part of that page was placed on the right and turned 45 degrees. Then I added the paint spray to the left, playing with the colour, blending and place for a while. I really liked the rich dark colour (blending layer exclusion), but softened the effect with a second spray paint underneath, offset so the colour showed.
I added the music and then tried an image from a book cover which didn't work so looked again and came up with this sweet little girl. The dark area was the perfect place for the main quote and I also added a further quote and a butterfly, finishing with the stars. Nearly all the layers have been blended in PS Elements. Both of the quotes were on old images from a book from the Gutenberg site.
Hope you have a great weekend x
