Far out, groovy swirls & symbols...


I have to begin this post with a big THANK YOU to Liz Ness, who posted a digital mini-workshop on her blog about how to create swirls. I've been scanning a lot of pre-made swirls to incorporate into my digital collage pieces, but I much prefer being able to make my own. I started this piece just as a practice session on making the swirls. When I finished, I flattened the image and added my favorite bright color palette, which reminded me of the Pucci patterns of the 1970s. I framed the pattern in a circle, which reminded me of 70s symbols like peace signs...

SERIOUSLY groovy, girl! Love this...has such a cool feel to it! AWESOME stained glass feeling going on, too! (Can you tell I LOVE it? Heh-heh.)

PS: I'm not kidding you, the word verification I am just about to type so that the blog accepts this comment has the word "hip" in it...wild!

PPS: Thanks for the linkage!
