Digital Art Tutorial & Letter Fun

Screen Shot 2013-02-15 at 3.35.32 PM

I am knee deep in hand lettering classes as part of my 2013 resolution.   My hand hurts from practicing, so I took a break from inspiration and thought I would share with you this fun digital art journal tutorial from Nancie Rowe Janitz.  She has several tutorials that will teach you to make some amazing pieces by scanning in backgrounds, photos, doodles and whatever you can think of to incorporate into your digital art.  Sometimes messy is fun, other times you just want to play in a way that doesn't involve a ton of supplies and cleanup!  If I am unsure of where to go with a mixed media piece, I often scan in my background to play with text and elements to figure out a layout that I then do by hand.

This was part of a journal page I learned from techniques in Lori's class.  It is water color on mixed media paper, Pitt pen and graphite pencil.  I scanned it and applied the Topaz Affects Grunge filter in Photoshop.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you are inspired to create!
