Messing about, mixed media and digital manipulation 

One of the things I like doing  best as a time waster and ‘a lets not do the housework/ cook dinner exercise ‘ is producing mixed media images and then manipulating them in my iPhone Apps 

My favourite go to doodling is pen and ink flowers 


I am working in a letter journal at the moment and the theme is flowers so I reproduced this image and added colour 


I used Gelatoes , babywipes and teal acrylic through a stencil – the pen ran a bit with the baby wipe 


So I needed to work ontop of it a bit more – I wasn’t really satisfied with this either 


So I edited the warmth and saturation in the iPhone photo app


I reflected the image , tried layering and fiddling with the filters in snapseed – but it wasn’t doing what I wanted 


Until I only layered part of the image and made a stronger tonal panel down the middle 


I rotated and reflected it and then zoomed in on a smaller section to get something I liked a lot more – I like the patterns the lighter sections make in contrast – it’s just a shame the resolution isn’t very good. When you manipulate to this level
