Thoughts on a Bridge
The tutorial that was in the Aug 31 newsletter really was great! This is what I did trying to copy the techniques in GIMP. There are two photos and one background paper with lots of fuzzing on the edges of the photos. I also used the Value Mode which is the GIMP equivalent of the luminosity for photoshop, I think. I made one mask on my own & used one GIMP brush mask. Oh, I also used a bit of a color overlay to make the skin skin color instead of green. I had such a lot of fun with this, thanks so much, Brandy!
My poem if you can't read it:
Water rippling over sunlit rocks,
I stand above and watch the play
of moving sunlight over time smoothed stone.
Then I take up my pack again
this bridge is but a begining,
the woods - a tiny patch of wild -
is calling me.
