Elves was this week's theme at Sunday Postcard Art.
The background is one of my own photos - I used a free app, Painnt, to get the rough brush strokes and a more artistic look then adjusted the transparency to fade it a bit. The rest of the digital graphics I chose from my files, tinkered with them a bit, and layered.
I've posted three Art Challenge websites at the top of the right sidebar so I can easily click over (and you can, too). This is my first challenge effort - I'm very curious how my style and abilities will change and grow as I go forward. And learn Photoshop Elements! I put this piece together on CraftArtist2, an old program that is no longer available. I have different photo/art apps that I use for various effects and I'm sure Elements has them all in one program.
See you next time...
