'graphics-play' - with my digitally-created pieces, i.e. trees, butterflies, clothesline and clothes/pegs, background etc. The mushroom originals had been black-white line drawings from an out-of-copyright botanical/fungi book sourced on Gutenberg.org. Had separated the caps from the bases, rotated some, put a slant on some ..and obviously coloured up in quirky colours. Added doors and windows ...

It is beautiful Carole. What digital program do you use?

Comment by Carole M. on February 11, 2015 at 12:30am

thanks Pat - I've been using PhotoImpactX3 for many years now (now owned by Corel).  You should be able to trial a free-30-day download if you're interested.  It's a more budget-version of PS I guess, but to me is quite versatile enough.  What are you using?

I have Artrage, Gimp2....and other apps on my iPad. I cannot figure them out...confusing to me. I'm very bad with directions...lol...If someone could show me like doing the layers etc. And I could not find a stylus that works for me. I bought 3 of them and don't like them. Do you use a stylus or the mouse with that program?

Comment by Carole M. on February 11, 2015 at 1:38am

Pat, much I can do with just a mouse, but if I do 'colouring-in' or drawing, I will use my Bamboo drawing tablet with stylus.  I do this all on my PC though.  Over the years I've 'saved' a lot of the objects I've created in my Photo-Impact E.P. (Easy Palette) for quick retrieval to re-use any-time.  BTW I have never gotten to the bottom of the layers-section.  I can 'overlay' items and give them added transparency levels - to create textures, and 'effects' but to actually use the layers dropdown through the creation of a new project, is another thing to conquer.

I love this Carole!...quirky, whimsical and charming...even the colours are fabulous!...I need to someday learn digital art...

thanks Nelson, I'm sure you'll do amazing things given the chance playing with digital/graphics

Comment by Carole M. on February 24, 2015 at 7:03am

that's good news Susanne; give it a go - you'll love it and no cleaning up afterwards.  I'm always surprised when I take on something new - always seems to come from left field, something I had never anticipated.  Good luck and have fun!
