Adding the Finishing Touches ... by 

Reilly (3) made miniature… A little Borrower to help me out with finishing off this doodle paisley artwork. Yes, the pencil is heavy, but he is a fine, strong boy and loves to help Mommy!

I have been messing around in Photoshop again today. Paisley pattern hand drawn by me and coloured using pencil crayons and ink. Reilly photographed and photoshopped into the picture by me, too. Great fun was had by all. : )

Edited with Photoshop CS5, Topaz ReMask and Topaz DeNoise also used.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    Amazing! I’m going to have to figure out how you did this! It’s really unique and fun….and, excellent! What a good boy!

  • Cut and paste… lol. I recently got Topaz ReMask but this is the first time I tried it, it really is wonderful and much easier than cutting out with a pen tool… : ) Thanks so much, Karen!
