Bears to Eyes

Took this photo at the Christkindlemarket  in Naperville, then I played around with different tools, filters and textures.

The first image I created didn’t have the eye,  the gibbon or the smoothed area on the top left of the photo. I like this second image better.

Unsettling Changes

Started with this photo of flowers at a rest stop in Wisconsin.


Then I played around and got this image

Then layered seven images and experimented with various tools and textures until I got this image.


Then I made some other changed….cropped the right side, changed the placement of the  eye, added some other images and softened the shade of pink… until I got this final image titled “Unsettling Changes”

From Trash to Treasure :-)

Started by doodling around on the computer ’til I came up with this image.


then I added this image of a garbage bag ready to be tossed out.


then I played around with the day lily, finally rotating and layering it on top of the other 2 images.


then played around a bit more and came up with this image that I titled “Wild Birds”
