  • Christmas Holly

    It's been a long time since I've posted in this section.
    I don't know if this is actually holly, but it looks festive.
    Have fun with it and Happy Hollydays!

    Here is the link for the gallery where you can right-click save a larger size and view my edit in larger size.
    Gallery links for larger images

    I made an action for my technique if anyone wants to try out the action let me know and I can host it for download or something.
    I'm still trying to figure out why we can't just post [img] links instead of posting super low-res images.

            holly salad, anyone?

            (if this appears twice, sorry. I thought I already posted it earlier but I don't see it, so maybe I fumbled it the first time.)


            Lyle, I like your ornament a lot more than mine!

              Looks like some holiday fun. Nice paintings and baubles. Lyle, you continue to amaze, and Marggg, I've never seen an ornament like yours. I'm assuming you used an action of some sort but I've never seen it. And your salad....LOL

                Fran, lovely rendering.
                Nature knows opposites attract with those reds and greens.

                  Fran, yours is beautiful, like a real watercolor painting.

                  I made the "ball" (actually its a bell) with a photo of silver bell. I overlaid the holly and experimented with so many filters and blending modes I'm honestly not sure what I used in the end. And I made the dumb mistake of not taking snapshot before I flattened the layers. I was aiming for a painted ceramic look but couldn't achieve that, so I went this direction instead.

                      Margg, why didn't I ever think of using a silver bell? Great idea and you did a nice job blending them together. John, nice way to use Shelly.

                            John, that's a shell of a bauble!
                            OlBaldy, how did you make it?
                            What fun!

                              Rohape, I enjoyed looking through your portfolio.
                              All of the sparkles and berries put one in a holiday mood...OlBaldy, great shape...looks like a variation on an amazing circle? John, your design just becomes a fractal, no? It's super.
                              Fran, Hallmark ready...very pleasing technique.
                              Marggg...your salad looks tasty. How do holly leaves taste, anyway? Creative.
                              Lyle...the fun never stops! You R an inspiration
                              aartist...love the texture, can "feel" the shine just by looking.

                              Now I can't wait to try one myself.
