Today’s layer is #3. At this point I have my background design and my black and white illustration. I have the design as the bottom layer, then the b&w picture and now I start removing spaces to show the design underneath. I use the “magic wand” tool in Photoshop to select the areas of white that I want to remove. This leaves the black as a border and whatever is beneath what I have removed will show through. There is no real rhyme or reason as to how I craft the image at this point. I am “feeling” what the image wants to be. I believe that every picture tells a story and I am listening to the universe and trying to be true to the untold story emerging 🙂
Removing puzzle pieces to find the image rather than adding them…..
