List It Tuesday - The Cages and Roadtrip Ideas!

by Mary Lou 'LuLu' Haynes

'The Cage and Roadtrip Ideas'

digital collage - approx .30 minutes
Howdy and welcome,

This week for List It Tuesday, I layered one of my practice sketches of bird cages with my 2 lists of improvements hubby and I compiled for next year's NY roadtrip. Used layers, effects, transparencies and inversions in Adobe PSE (Photoshop Elements) and MS DIE (Digital Image Editor). 

I just love the look of handwriting, art lettering and Leonardo Da Vinci's sketchbooks. I'm going for texture - not necessarily legibility. Just to try something different. What do you think? Pretty wild, eh? Would love your comments on this one!

Thanks for stopping by to visit - and don't forget to chekout my give-a-way!

Howdy Lynn,
I love layering - in my art, in my scrapbooks, in my poetry, in my music - and I always over-do it.

Please come back again soon.

I love playing with layers in photoshop! Experimenting with adding texture layers to my photos to help create ambiance is m current project

I like the way you take something a tad mundane and make it art!

Also love your blog set up, very visually pleasing :)
