Because of fabulous moisture this winter and early spring rains, my iris are going crazy right now. It's been a sea of purples, from soft pinky purple to deep midnight purple, sprinkled with a few white daisies. Yesterday a few yellows and a rich brown have joined the chorus. By next week my favorite pinks will show their lovely faces.
This week I've used Leonardo to layer up my creation.
I was cleaning up my iPad icons and noticed quite a few apps that I couldn't remember what they were…. So I opened Shift, found a filter that looked good...
and from that app opened it in Fragment.
I layered this over the top of the previous in Leonardo with the opacity reduced and blend mode set to screen.
Then I added a photo of a mixed media background I had painted for more background texture (gelli roll style).
I added a 'garden' sign from a previously edited photo and masked it.
I added one of my iris sketches and used 'parts' on four different layers.
Next… into Stackables where I cruised my saved formulas for a starting point. I found these two but decided I liked the grungy contrast of the one at the top.
Hoping this monday starts your week off with beauty.
