  • Project #6 - out and about

    As suggested by urstwile.

It was great. He e-mailed me the pictures while he was on his trip, and it was really fun.

    So...you take your (fun desk toy, favorite hat, unique stapler, etc., etc.) and travel around with it and pose it in different situations wherever you're at.
    No deadline on this one... happy shooting!

      This whole idea started with yard gnomes and the traveling gnomes brought forth the Travelocity Gnome!

                  Yep. The Gnome thing started in Australia. At least, according to Wikipedia.

                            Okay, I'm trying this. People are looking at me like I'm a big idiot - my kids included! But it's fun! Maybe I can post some pics later today. I lost my nerve in Sam's Club this morning, maybe I'll do better when I go to World Market this afternoon!! My objects sort of big - 8" circle!!

                              Alright, I'm retiring my object back to the shelf cause I'm too scared it's gonna break. But here it is. A little background on my object first. My husbands great aunt (actually pronounced aint) Lois saw this picture in a magazine one day of these Princess Diana plates that were for sale from the Franklin Mint. She loved them and wanted each of her sisters to have one but she couldn't afford to buy them one. There are a total of 8 sisters, but 1 had died. So, she went and bought 5 more of the magazines and carefully cut out the picture of the Diana plate. She then somehow affixed each picture to an existing plate that she owned. I laughed so hard the first time I saw it. It is amazingly tacky. It's actually the tackiest thing that I own. I actually own two of them right now. When one of the sisters dies, I get her Diana plate. I attended Aint Edie's funeral on Friday. I called my mother in law on Sunday to see if she could swing getting Aint Edie's plate for me. A plan is in the works. The one in the photo belonged to Aint Dee. I chose it because she smoked so much that it's a little yellowed, offering a little more photographic intrigue!

                                I can't give you the exact recipe for creating textures like you've shown because they were all created, as you just mentioned, using various filters, brushes, and other tools in Photoshop.

                                Alright! I'm just planning to use these textures in my personal art projects for the time being. I don't particularly want to get in the habit of doing things "wrong" but don't have to worry...

                                i think i agree. i see it as too many of cooks in the kitchen. we all get along as co-workers, but we each have our own style and ownership of our own set of projects.

                                i don't think it sounds...

                                First you have to determine if doing them in photoshop is the correct route to take. For instance, if you are creating a logo, using photoshop (and these textures in general) would be a bad idea.
