Arch of the Week-Winter Sports

The challenge of the week at Gothic Arches is Winter Sports. My printer is working again, but I'm having so much darn fun with playing around with digital art programs that I just can't stop. At least my craftroom is cleaner for it!

A great big THANK YOU goes out to Ozstuff for her arch template that she sent me and for all the tips. I managed to get copies of Microsoft Digital Image Pro and Photo Shop Elements which she recommended, and they are so much fun! I was able to handtint the figure in the photo using Image Pro and then I went back and used PSE to add in the trees,snowflakes, text and some aging to the image.

Arch of the Week-Gypsy

My first ever Digital Arch! Because my printer is not working properly, I did not have access to the images i wanted, so I took this opportunity to teach myself more about digital art!!!Also, if you'll notice, this theme gave me a chance to post music from my favorite gypsy punk band(ok the only gypsy punk band I know)..Gogol Bordello!!!
