A day to try out new ideas
Using some new techniques I have learnt over the last few weeks from Kim, Photoshop Artistry and Michelle and Rachel Shefveland
Before
I ran a preset I had made using a recipe from Kim in her Beyond Beyond class
After

Playing around with Downton textures and Canvasback both by Kim.  I used a mask created by Juliette Mead for the Photoshop Artistry course and then added a quote created by Michelle and Rachel Shefveland for their Arts Blend course.

Next I applied a very dramatic preset with lots of clarity and contrast.
I just love the poem from Kenneth Grahame’s The Wind in the Willows.
Duck’s Ditty
All along the backwater, 

Through the rushes tall, 

Ducks are a-dabbling, 

Up tails all!

Ducks’ tails, drakes’ tails, 

Yellow feet a-quiver, 

Yellow bills all out of sight 

Busy in the river!

Slushy green undergrowth 

Where the roach swim– 

Here we keep our larder, 

Cool and full and dim.

Everyone for what he likes! 

WE like to be 

Heads down, tails up, 

Dabbling free!

High in the blue above 

Swifts whirl and call– 

WE are down a-dabbling 

Up tails all!




Finally I have to add a bit of grunge !   Kim’s kk_Iam and lots of colourburn .
