collecting crystals

 

I collect them, too. I'm looking at a blue tiger's eye on my desk that I tumbled and polished myself. Beautiful piece. I have so many!....

 

The blues in 'Orca' are very soothing; what a pretty piece!  Never thought to be inspired by my crystals... 🤭  Just keep up the splendid work, BBQ.  When we're on a roll we have to go with it. Never know how long the next 'dry' spell is going to be!  😄

Hubby says I am addicted. Good on you for tumbling & polishing yourself. Blue tiger's eyes are just gorgeous. I don't know if you have ever held an orca agate but they feel wonderful & gentle but with great strength just the same. If you get a chance, hold one. Wouldn't it be grand if we could just pop over for a visit :D I could let you hold mine. I wonder if you will create something with your crystals?

 

I am still working on another piece but not quite happy with it just yet.

No, I'd have to buy one.  Maybe I will.

We'd probably go 'ga-ga' over each others crystals...  🤪

I need some inspiration first. Haven't been much inspired lately.  🙄

You're on a roll @barbieq25❤️    Both images are so bright and cheerful. The leaves in 'Pillow Talk' are beautiful.  I've never seen variegation like that before.

 

Both made my morning.  Thank you, BBQ!!  🤗

Wow!  Those look wonderful @barbieq25  👍  Lovely colors and Brighter Days Ahead is very gelatinous 😲 and Pillow Talk is nice and soothing 🌞.

 

I'm impressed with how your images open up so fast.  I guess I should try image shack sometime 😉

Thank you @lynxster4& @Pixey. At the moment I loathe my new job role. I am counting the weeks - 50 to go! 

When I need to rest my brain from whatever ails me, I use PDN. I can just zone out & push everything out of my mind. Much healthier & cheaper than booze or drugs. Or crystals for that matter! :D

 

This one is Calli Red made using the  CalliColour plugin, Hue adjustment, colour tint & a few blurs, layer blends too. The ball & highlights I made previously. Can't do that with a linen canvas :D

I will send you the instructions on how to do the links in ImageShack. @toe_head2001sent me them a while back & I added the images. It is in Word but I will see how we can do this.

Another beauty @barbieq25!  ❤️  The reds are so vibrant I can somehow feel them...

 

Yes, PDN can be a cure for what ails you; gives you a chance to push the 'reset' button...  😉

 

I'm not familiar with the plugin 'CalliColour'. Can you tell me where it's located? Thanks.

Umm yeah, I had to go find it & when I get the author correct, it's easy to find.

Your comments on the feeling the art makes me so happy. Yes, love the description of pushing the reset button. :D

Keen to see what you do with it. I want to use it some more. Maybe tonight I will play after I finish tending to the 20 gazillion plants that I have :D

@barbieq25I am so enthralled by Cali Red. First because red is my favorite color but I love how you incorporated the glass orb into the flower petals. Very clever and gorgeous outcome. I too use PDN at times for therapeutic reasons. I have had some health issues and sometimes just working in PDN takes my mind off the symptoms. There are times when I can't sleep and just am "pdning" till the wee hours of the morning.

Thank you @Ladybug. Yes, I do love contrasts. Soft petals, hard glass. Art therapy is wonderful. It has got me through some really tough times & I know others will feel the same.

 

@Red ochrewhere would we be without plugins? Thank you for taking the time to write them. 

 

@Pixey, thank you :D I love red in art. My fave colours are purple, pink, blue but red in art just spins my wheels :D

 

Latest image again using CalliColour is Take a Bow. It has been quite a while since I have incorporated a jewel into a piece. What a fabulous plugin. Also used was Shape 3D, lots of blurs, layer blend modes & opacity adjustments.

@barbieq25 The white of the bow works perfectly with the colors you selected for the background. 

 

The red jewel just centers the whole piece.  Love it!  ❤️ 🤗

Ooooooo - love the Take a Bow 🥰 The colors are all perfect and make it really pop!  It's so soft and satiny 👍
