Edna, Owl, Clarice and Pamela find new environments

Edna in Nap Wood. This one made me laugh when I first saw the effect!
The oil pastel owl in my friends' garden.

Clarice and Pamela floating over a sunset on Blackheath.
I have discovered the rubber tool, and how to get rid of the rubbed out background. I think I discovered this for myself, using knowledge gained from other parts of the class.
I don't normally say this, thinking that it is up to you, but they look much better if you enlarge them by clicking on them. Especially Edna!

My kids like to do stuff with those little plastic pearls too. There is a lot of those ironed plastic thingies around slowly crumbling to the floor.

Edna is indeed the masterpiece here. The next step you might consider here is to add some shadow for her so that she appears to be standing right there in the woods.

Yay for the discovery of new tools! I love what you've done here - looks like you've had a ball with it!

These are brilliant Sarah - Edna's my favourite! It looks like a whole new avenue of creativity is opening up for you with these digital tools... what fun! And I'm loving seeing how you're playing with them :) xo

I agree with you about Edna, what a riot! It is absolutely perfect where she is. I love the whimsical nature of what you are doing, and look forward to seeing more. I am trying to get enough energy to get the garden in shape. It seems I start something and that something turns into 20 different somethings and so forth. Today it was just a little thing that turned into moving two grapevines into the patio and you don't want to know what my back and my legs feel like at the moment. Then dressing the fruit trees with Ikea's curtains -
don't ask, a long story about not wanting to use netting because birds get caught in it, so I had a moment of brilliancy when I found some pair of curtains in illusion silk like material but made of polyester, perfect to wrap the trees and avoid avian disasters.
They were less expensive than netting and perfect for the job.
I will post something on my blog this week, it may help others.
Hugs from here and I hope to see more photoshop art soon.

Man oh man, that Edna really knows how to live it up. Well done, all of them! They DO look good when enlarged but look quite nice here as well.
I really should kick it up a notch with my own photos, but where is that pesky folder with my photoshop??? Kitten probably knows...
Take good care.
