Cryin for the Queen...


Orange butterfly collage 


My best friend Michael is a lightning rod for good music... His ears are always on..tuned to the streets. Haha.. So when he emailed me that he loved this song, I clicked as fast as I could to download it. I can't get it out of my head! If you can turn it up this morning, and can take a little "language", then you should check it out. You can listen for free here. (Don't get carried away at work..I told you....language.)


It takes a while to learn, but once you get motoring around with Photoshop...it is so much fun! An open road lies ahead, and I am on it.


In a nutshell...to create this collage: digitally alter a journal page, add an original photo (butterfly), add a layer of antique journal paper, add in the TTV frame (free download)...a few clicks...a little of this and a little of that and voila! Digital collage. Actually, it's not that simple for me yet, but I am getting faster. My challenge is understanding the potential of my photographs and how they can blend into my painted art...confused? Me too...but it feels fantastic.


Thanks for stopping in! Tomorrow I'll post a little soldered mail art. Ciao.
