It’s funny how you plan to do something and then change your mind to be surprised by the results. That is what happened with this art journal card. I did not intend to include the picture I used from the National Geographic magazine.
It did not initially call out to me, no instinctive feeling towards it. Probably because of the darkness and lack of color. But, I wanted to try cutting out a tangle and experimenting with the results, so I thought what the hay, I’ll try it on this image. Suprise! It turned out pretty neat. A bit gritty, with some soft edges.
