Foto Art Friday – July 15, 2016
I just received some vintage handwriting pieces that I’ve yet to scan into my computer to use in my art. However, that didn’t stop me from imagining a piece that has some vintage writing in the background. I found a piece that I had scanned some time ago – a love letter – and immediately felt this was the beginning of this piece. I used a photograph of some lovely green foliage I took at the San Diego Botanic Garden, as well as one of a waterlily that I took at the same place. I blurred the foliage image and blended it with the vintage love letter. I then placed the water lily on top of that, and did some gentle blending. I didn’t want to do too much, and lose the water lily, but I did want the letter to still be visible. I added some brushes of vines and decided the piece was finished. Sometimes, less is more.
