a playful session


I started off playing with layering textures using different effects, using a photo I took at the beach near home last week.  I liked the kind of vintage, worn, old look so stopped playing. 

Then I wondered if I could carve a word into the wood and played with those effects.

Then I remembered that the prompt from Inspiration Avenue this week was to use some words which included hope,wish, dream and to  have a vintage feel.  So that is where I went.  I like the result, not a wow, but a good feel, so I’m pleased especially as I just started out playing.

I love that 'carved' lettering effect - your creativity and photoshop skills never cease to impress me xx

Love the background - kind of faded and aged but rich - and the lettering is beautiul.

Very nicely done and great PS effects. That carved wood takes skill. I would say it's the wow factor of this piece.
