love to have red wings

dr-seuss-red

As you can see red is this week’s colour over at Twinkle Twinkle with the added challenge to include a winged item.

I’m using this challenge to play with digiart techniques in Photoshop Elements creating canvases to display some of my favourite Dr Seuss quotes.  I’m really enjoying the weekly play and am learning a lot about different techniques.

I’ve seen she art pop up in blogland and been wanting to try my hand at using the idea in my digiart and this seemed a good week to have a go.  I’ll definitely be using this idea some more.  Not sure which I covet more – her dress/top or wings.

Credits – canvas background from a Kim Klassen texture; splotches and drawn lines are brushes by Anna Aspena; wings from a brush by Becs Stock; paper used on dress BYD spring picnic – turned red; font is travelling typewriter.  She art associated with Christy Tomlinson.

I really like the vivid colors in this!

BTW - I used your tag mini-album idea from a few months ago & posted about it here: http://melissagross.blogspot.com/2011/07/twin-tag-mini-albums.html. Thanks for the inspiration.
