Digital Fun


I can't believe it has been almost a month since I've posted.  Certainly not intentional.  Life just got in the way.
My low back has been giving me fits - arthritis says the doc.  Whatever, it was so painful to sit up in bed to get up in the morning I just dreaded it.  It has improved vastly and I'm starting physical therapy this upcoming week.   I sort of lost my muse during this time of physical stress plus the holidays, plus blah, blah, blah.  You know…..
I finally got back on the computer a couple days ago.  Tip toeing through some of my favorite blogs, I found this tip on Michelle Ward's site.  Layer one image over another (in this case I layered one painted background over a painting).  Select the eraser tool and pick a brush.  Use it as you would a regular brush.  It will erase the top layer in the shape of the brush.  I love it….so simple but has unlimited possibilities.
More playing around….
Then consider using a regular brush over the "eraser" images. The pink below is the regular brush.
Play with this and see what possibilities you can dream up.

First off so sorry for the low back problems, I can relate and it is making it harder to use my Canon Mark III because of it. I just tire so easily. I love that you got inspiration from a blog entry and you took it and ran with it. I love what you have done here. Hope your back problems will ease even more Marilyn.
