Moody Blue

So I was playing in Photoshop again and wondered what would happen if I ... merged some of my CitraSolv backgrounds together to create new ones? I don't know why I hadn't thought of that before. I love the results!

Miss Moody her hair! That vibrant blue is what comes from using different blending modes, hues, saturation levels on the merged backgrounds. It's almost iridescent-looking. I have a special background that I'm using to merge a lot of these with. Here is a subtler version of the blue merged with two other backgrounds:

I call this one, "Threshold". So now I have even more versions to play with!

Lots of things going on behind the scenes here. I'm working on another torn-paper collage, Warhol-style, but that's all I'm going to say about it for now. You'll have to wait until it's finished. ;) Hopefully, that will be in the next day or two. I was asked to enter the first Warhol collage in an Andy Warhol contest. How cool is that? There are some awesome entries so far but it was nice to be included!

That's all for now. Just wanted to share these new finds. More to come shortly.

Oh my goodness, congratulations and good luck to you in the contest! I know your Warhol will be a hit. It's one of my favorites for sure. Please let us know how it turns out. :)

This threshold piece is lovely. I'm really into doorways right now, and I love the colors you used. so very pretty.

See look at that moody blue face and tell me it doesn't remind you of a watercolor by molly Brill:)
