Oh the places you’ll go

dr-seuss-orange

So sad that this is the last colour in the colour challenge at Twinkle Twinkle – I’ve relished my weekly play with digi techniques and looking at the wonderful range of creativity from others who participated.

I saved my favourite Dr Seuss quote for last – from Oh the Places You’ll Go – which I think should be given to everyone at each turning point or crossroads or down point in their lives – so pretty much everyone, all the time should have at least one on their shelf.  I know at least one of you reading this has several.

So this week I decided to bar myself from using bevel as I have used that effect so much.  Here I started with a photo or orange flowers from my garden and then applied several image altering and filter techniques.  The one that gives the honeycomb lines is stained glass texture and I’ll be using it again.  The fonts are travelling typewriter and Matisse for the highlighted words.

Now I need to find or invent a new theme for a weekly play with digiart.

This is perfect! I love the textures you've created here and of course that fabulous quote. Thank you for sharing them all with us, xo

I love that quote, Helena. Just perfect for my 'Explore' Playbook! Your image is so vibrant, it can't help but raise your mood. It fits in well with the online course I am doing as this week is all about colour and how they affect you.
You will love Painted Pages if you are picked to receive Pass the Book. I hoped it would get me off the computer but sadly not so! My workspace is inaccessable so perhaps I have an excuse for now.

I love the quote you used. The honeycomb effect is really nice too. I will have to try it. I love the way that the flowers still show through.
