persue pleasures

As I said yesterday, pithy phrases were one of my main ‘take aways’ from browsing Sarah Ban Breathnach’s Romancing the Ordinary this month. I received the book as part of Sian’s Pass the Book project and will be passing it on next week. If you would like to be in the draw to receive this book next then please go to yesterday’s post and leave a comment. I will make the draw on the morning of Monday 6 June (UK time).

Here is another digiart piece that I made to display one of her quotes. This time I used a photo of fruit growing in the garden and Kim Klassen’s scratchy texture to create the piece. I used the exclusion blending mode which causes the change of colour from the greens of the photo to the soft purples in this piece. The font is one of my favourites – Papyrus and I added a stroke using layer style. I used the eyedropper tool to take the font and stroke colours from the image.

I’ll be sharing some more creativity inspired by this book over the next few days.

Hi Helena - hope it soon stops raining for a bit where you are! I can't really see the fruit in your image (which is the point obviously!) I love your editing, and will defiitely be finding out more. Thanks for the link in your profile!
