This is a portrait of the artist Irishishka when she was a young girl that I created for Julia Kay’s Portrait Party on Flickr. I started the portrait in ArtRage and next imported it into Brushes to add the collage elements. The roses are Hipstamatic photos which I’ve made semi-transparent. I also used a textured surface behind her head to give the picture a more aged, worn look. I really like using ArtRage and Brushes together because they each have unique functions and gives it a more unique look.
