AEDM day 9 - Experimenting

I'm on a dabbling roll.  The amount of stuff at an art/craft store is amazing!  What does one do with all of it?  Well, of course, most people don't do something with "all" of it.  This is my month for experimenting with different mediums and techniques.  Some may work; some may not.  Those colored pencils didn't work for me, but from comments I learned about other options with more vibrant colors.  Thanks for the feedback!


Yesterday I took a picture of all the bare trees in our backyard with the beautiful blue sky in the background.  Changed the hue of the photograph in Photoshop Elements and printed the picture on card stock paper with my inkjet printer.  Mixed Adirondark alcohol ink (Cranberry) about half and half with alcohol blending solution.  Wet the paper and then misted (with a mini mister) the trees with the ink mixture.  When it dried, I added a flying crow to the sky.  I'm sort of happy with how it turned out.

I truly appreciate all of the wonderful feedback from the AEDM group and from my Fly Tribe!

Wow, this is great. Who knew-alcohol inks, prints of photos all put together would look so awesome?

I didn't realize it was a photo. It came out very cool.

I enjoy playing with my photos, but have never tried this. I love the starkness of the trees, and the color--it's really nice!

This is quite cool Constance. It looks painted. You might be on to something.

I love the look of this! I'm always picking up the alcohol inks at Michaels and putting them back down because I'm not sure what to do with them. This is so cool!

So excited and impressed with all the things you are doing and learning! Funny how making things every day will help you branch out and discover things...
