Imps, Fairies, and Friendly Spirits
During the day my kitchen looks like an ordinary place —
(doing a mouse-over will make the pictures more vivid)
–but at night, I hear strange noises, and the next morning, things are out of place…
For the 1 Day 1 World Project, we are up to the hour of 3:00 – 4:00 am. Not much happens around here at that hour – fortunately Jude got me thinking in new directions with her ghost story. I have always loved those old cartoons where the kitchen products come alive in the depths of the night and cause a little mischief, so I decided to create my own.
I was also inspired by Cindy Hickok’s fabulous Café de Musée, a thread-painted grouping of beloved figures from art.
My friendly spirits came from an old book about opera, and a Dover Book clip art book called Trades and Occupations. I learned all kinds of new PhotoShop tricks from the book How To Cheat in PhotoShop Elements 12 by David Asch.
I had so much fun doing this! I just hope I remember all the techniques I learned, the next chance I get to play around with photos.
