Combining Media Digitally

IMG_1136Someone asked me a couple of days ago where I get my ideas. I said that sometimes they just happen organically. I don’t always set out with a concrete idea of what I want a piece to look like. I just start with some elements and play around with them and at some point, after a few happy accidents, I decide that I like the way it looks.

IMG_1370I was playing around with dyeing some fabric and paper with natural dyes like beet juice and wine. It looked….okay. I wasn’t thrilled. I decided to stamp some shapes on it with my handmade stamps and ink. I’m liking it a little better. I photographed it and then started playing with it digitally in some Ipad apps like DistressedFX.

I liked this look! Then I used a photo of a tree and it’s reflectinon as a custom texture on top of the fabric and paper. I’m liking it even better. I saved it and reopened it and added birds. Kind of dreamy.

I had this vintage photo that I got from my family photos. I don’t know who this couple is, but they look so sweet together. I opened it in DistressedFX also and added a texture and then again and added the tree and birds.

Then I layered it on top of the fabric/paper photo in my Procreate App, that allows me to open a layer over a background and control the opacity and hue and size.

It feels done! I saved it as it is and then I decided to try another photo on the top of it next. I love the result of the next one, but I like the one with the people better. It feels like it has a story. Maybe someday I will find out who they are.

Country Roads

 As I drive down the road from my house…

  I start to see the old familiar sights…

  With new eyes. 

It’s About Color and Texture and Fun

 

 

I have a serious color and texture addiction. Hi…My name is Sherry and I’m a colorholic/textureholic. I had a delicious time in the studio combining materials and techniques to come up with some new creations.

I pulled out my torch and glass rods and lampworked some head pins to use for the stamens in the flowers. I torch fired some enamel flowers and rectangles, adding some glass frit for extra texture. I added some patina to some 22 cal. shells and combined them with some beads and wire for the finished product.

Each pair of earrings has many steps to achieve the final product.

These will be available at Wall Candy Custom Framing and Gallery and Cliques Hair Salon in Columbia, or email me if you are interested.
