Pens and Brushes


This is a digital collage made from a close-up photo of my own brushes at my art table- which I was staring at as I was pondering what to make for this challenge for TGIF! I set up the photo on a background of tissue paper and used some rubber stamps for design. I then overlayed the photo with its background erased out. It's fun to find inspiration in everyday things!

  15. Lori,
    Your use of layers is fantastic. I just LOVE this piece. IS it O.K. if I print it and hang it in my studio?
