Jump for Joy

Today's theme for Texture Tuesday is "Two".  I should have titled this "Double Your Pleasure" to fit with the theme.  I found this technique in my latest issue of Elements magazine.  It really is a simple technique, but it took me longer than I had anticipated simply because part of the process is extracting the subject image. That is not one of my strong suits.  Arrgh!
I used Pixel Dust Photo Art's "Medieval Magic" texture, Kim's "February Magic Edges" texture, and a stencil brush by Marie Otero.  The font is "Quilted Butterfly".  Join us over at Texture Tuesday and Photo Art Friday for a cuppa or a glassa and a tour of some magic art!!

i love that saying. my two year old nephew used to say it when he first learned to jump, and it makes me chuckle everytime i see or hear it. your dog and the double technique turned out lovely, it was well worth the time you put into it : )

Fabulous editing work Marilyn! Extracting parts of images is often a bit of a bugagoo for me too.

Love this piece of photo-art. Thank you for sharing your work and your process with Photo Art Friday.

Oh I like this a lot. I wouldn't even know where to begin in "extracting" anything from a photo so I admire your ability to do so. Wonderful use of the textures.
