I use Photo Shop Elements for my digital art but there are lots of programs available like Picnik, Gimp, Picasa, and of course Photo Shop. Prices vary from free to expensive.
I love creating digital art and spend a lot of time at it. For me it's a relaxing artistic endeavor. I'm excited Anna has started this project and I can't wait to see what everyone posts.
Here's mine for November:
This is my original photo taken of a Peony in my garden. Notice the ants crawling around, I've pointed them out with blue arrows. They are small but definitely spoil the photo! I removed them with the cloning tool in Photo Shop Elements (PSE).
Then I started playing around adding various textured layers in PSE:
|Pink textured layer with grainy film look|
|Gold textured layer with grainy film look|
The last two are similar to each other but I used PSE with Topaz Labs Filters rather than textured layers.
I edited the first one to a soft lavender painterly look with a soft grainy feel....dreamy!
I edited this one to a soft white and grey painterly look with a soft grainy feel....more dreaminess!
All of these from just one photograph!
