Altering Photos

Although this is not actually a photo, the art was done on photo paper. I wanted to show you how wonderful Galaxy Markers and Opaque Stix work on photos(not ink jet photos). The background was created with alcohol inks a long time ago when I was experimenting with those. Today, I decided to play with my markers on this wonderful background. Both of the markers I mention just glide on so smooth and dry so quickly. NOW WILL SOMEONE TELL ME WHY MICHAELS DOES NOT HAVE GALAXY MARKERS ANYMORE??? I finally get on board with something and they discontinue the very product I need! No worries though, I did find that I can buy them on line in several places.

I have been inspired by Karen Michel's work in altering photos for some time. I just have not tried this too much. But, I think this technique would be fun to use in my scrapbooks and journals. So, I am going to have to get the photo box out and find something to alter. I would recommend the Complete Guide to Altered Imagery by Karen Michel to the beginner in this art. Happy Sunday.
PS: I'm going to Vegas for work for the next few days so I probably won't be blogging. So, I will blog ASAP when I get back because I will be in blog withdrawal. Plus, I am sure I will have some great blog material then! What happens in Vegas may not stay in Vegas! There is your warning! Heehee
