My Love is a Summer Red Radish


My Love is a Summer Red Radish.
Sometimes hot and spicey.
Sometimes cool and refreshing.
Always passionate.

This black magic treatment made it look more like a painting or at least a sketchbook page.

Notes on the making of this image :

Layer 1) Background Image.
Here's the original image that I started with.  I love red and black together!
I tried all kinds of things to improve this image, and nothing really worked until I applied the black magic textures below.   I learned this trick from Kim Klassen.  I made the black textures below in an excellent online class with Denise Love from 2 Lil Owls. 

Layer 2)  India Ink on Yupo Scan 21 - Screen blend mode 63%
Layer 3) Copy Layer 2 - Overlay 55%

Layer 4) India Ink on Yupo Scan 14 - Screen 68%

On my - what magic you've wrought! I just sighed when the picture came up - it said cool and refreshing to me. Love the little poem with it - so true! I love my radishes...
