Practicing...In a Fog!

Marie's class is done...and I am practicing away with all these new "skills" I am supposed to have...she has a lot of faith!

I took a picture from my files of a foggy hill...
In camera raw i popped it up some but I didn't want to lose the foggy essence...i like that..
I cropped it and used the dry brush kind of art it up some...i love grungy edges and I tried and tried to download and use some free ones...i FINALLY figured out how to get them to load into the program...but i haven't actually been able to open an image I have downloaded

Except the ones from class..this is an texture we used in week three of class it gives me the grunge effect i am after..
i erased!!! the part i didn't want to cover the image (successfully!) then i clipped the mask together! (successfully)

so all in all i practiced many techniques...and it didn't take me 2 days!!!
i hardly referenced the notes either...i am on a cloud

i still have to figure how to use downloaded things...but that will come...

thanks for coming by

Your digital works are looking good! Tell me what the problems are with the downloading and what program you are using (and what version) and I will tell you how to use the downloaded stuff. It is a total shame not to be able to use them and fill up your hard drive with all of those downloads lol
Msg me on FB with the info and I will walk you through it!
