Februari Blogtrain: Rustic Charm

I have this uncontrollable urge to move towards Art Journal or Mixed Media type of designs. Having ‘been there, done that’ with the felt creatures (I am releasing an action so you can make your own this year at Pixel Scrapper) and having dabbled in ‘regular flat paper type with a bit of grunge’ scrapbook designs I am ready to move on to the next new thing. Only, some themes are really hard to incorporate in a mixed media style, at least it is for me. Since I am only at the beginning of my artsyfartsymixallkindsofmedia journey my mind can’t seem to come up with anyย Rustic Charm Art Journal thingy-me-thing. So I turned to making an Alpha instead ๐Ÿ˜› Or three Alphas actually – two painted & peeled Wood Alphas and a Burlap one. I fiddled around with 3D in Photoshop to achieve this result, but I couldn’t get it right, so I ended up doing it ‘manually’ with the help of a very helpful tutorial by psd-dude. Hope you like the results! (Oh, and by the way: these Alphas work best with a 45 degree drop shadow. Just so you know…)

    I love those painted alphas! The burlap one is nice too but the painted ones are GORGEOUS!!! I’m going to watch the tutorial too, I’ve really loved learning!
    Thank you for the alphas!!!! And good luck in your artsyfartsy mixedmedia journey, it’s a lot of fun! I’ve done a bit of it but now I don’t have time for glue and paint to dry!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ or the space to put those things while they dry ๐Ÿ™‚

    These are wonderful! Yours is my favorite part of the train so far, and I will really use these. I enjoy artsy if it isn’t full of people with dunce caps on or big headed women drawings. But artsy is a reflection of the artist. There are lots of people going in this direction. Jen Maddocks is one of my favorites in the genre. Good luck in your experimentation.
