art journal page - unravelled

art journal page for Year in the Life of An Art Journal.

The prompt is the word "Un" and the
technique is using digital layers and textures on photos.

Since I use Photoshop for my day job I try to separate the "paper and glue" art I generally do from the digital art, but I have to admit it was cathartic to work on this photo (or photos). The filters and textures came from the stock site Deviant Art and the photos are courtesy of the 365 Photo a Day Challenge I am doing. They were taken on my iphone one night.

The background is acrylic paint with duct tape and newspaper for texture and then I used punchinella (from Gauche Alchemy) as stencil for the dots and some new stamps i got for the circles. The letters are also from some old stamps I took out of storage.

    I love this so much! I am completely intruiged with the idea of combining digital with "real" art, but haven't the foggiest as to where to begin. As usual, your art has inspired me.
