I had also photographed parts of the encaustic piece, so I blended some of those, too:
And what is all this good for, except to chew up your time? Well, I use these kinds of things for backgrounds for trading cards and other nefarious projects. For instance, I drew a face today and used it with some of the encaustic textures to make some pictures:
And yes, I did manipulate the drawing, too--this time using Photoshop filters.
That's all for now! Until next time, Nan
