Even though I rarely take this step, recently I have found it Very Interesting to see how close MY definitions are to the dictionary's. Thus the above...
I had some fun playing with this word, the idea of it, and how I would like to play with it for this week's APR #30
I did a few things, some for fun. Some for mere curiosity. As I've been learning and practising what I am learning in PSE8, I've turned up a few nifty little tweaks that let me really explore the theme: MASQUERADE.
This is what a bit of a colour exploration and effects experimentation I got with the mask, Comedy. A wee bit wacky, to BE sure, yet fun and most interesting.
And this, I think is what I REALLY enJOYed most of all...
I lined-out a jester and coloured it in, painted round it, and then scanned it with the colours inverted. I continued tweaking it post-scanning in the digital fiddling stage.
These are the sorts of seemingly silly activities that really encourage me to keep exploring and finding out What Happens If???
I am really looking forward to seeing what all others come up with for Masquerade.
