Pull Of The Moon


Background - combined two photos from unsplash
Model - created using bits and pieces (head, arms, dress, feet, hair) combined
Moon - my photo of a full moon 
Texture, smoke, sparkle, hair strands - all my collection

Been thinking of this image for some time - not quite sure if this is it but for now it will do. I am a Cancer and a moon child and I find all phases of the moon fascinating.

Spending Time In The Woods


Background - my photo from one of my morning walks
Larger clock - http://grannysatticstock.deviantart.com/art/Clock-Tower-psd-95135674 
Textures, feather, clocks, hair strands, sign - my collection

A play on words.  This is a path in the woods near my house and I pass by it every day.  I have no idea where it leads.

That Annoying Guy At The Train Station


Background - created combining four photos - one from Pixabay and three from Sebastian Michaels AWAKE content
Model - Aurora extracted from a photo by Colby Files 
Trunk - Mischief Circus
Textures, hat, feather, flowers, birds, bird brushes, tag, star, sparkle - all my collection and AWAKE content

Yea weird I know but fun too.  I love to add the unexpected element to my compositions and I love to use skulls and skeletons. I thought the abstract background resembled a station of some type so I added the trunk.  I wonder if she accepts the flowers??

The Valentine


Background made up of 2 photos combined
Floating hearts - http://maureenolder.deviantart.com/art/STOCK-PNG-hearts-in-the-wind-116046901 Textures, dove, writing - all my collection

Well it's that time of year again so I thought I would make a Valentines image.  I am not particular inspired or happy with what I have been creating lately.  I just do not know what direction I want to go so that is a problem.  I make very simple images - I use Photoshop Elements and hardly anything else special.  I have some 3rd party stuff but tend not to use it.  I do not use actions because I prefer to make my own images my way.  I guess I will just keep plugging along and see where I get to.
