one of the things i've been wanting try out is blending modes. i love the idea that pretty much EVERYTHING can have a transparency level at any point between 0 (completely translucent) and 100% (completely opaque)!
here are some of the more interesting essperiments from that week...i haven't actually made them into anything yet, but hopefully they're a bit cool on their own?!
a very very saturated & high contrast version of my own lotus photo, blended with an o'scraps paper (clouds & text) and a laurie ann "rhinestone rain" brush.
here's anna aspnes' butterfly brush again...done REALLY BIG and less opaque, layered with a bunch of her asian script brushes, and circles of crowns; the background image is a very close-up photo i took of my mom's hydrangeas, with the color popped waaaaaaay up, blended with a piece of katie pertiet's folded & distressed notebook paper.
