Artist Profile Annette Welsch
1. Tell us about yourself and how you discovered digital art.
My name is Annette and I am 60 years old. I live with my family and 4 cats in Hamburg, Germany. I got my first camera and first edition of Photoshop over ten years ago. I learned to use Photoshop in a German forum. The forum also had a scrapbooking class. This was the beginning of my digital journey.
2. When you start a page, do you have a design in mind or do you create as you go?
I do not start with a predetermined design. I usually have some photos, a theme, or a color that I want to create around. I look for things work with them. My cats are always with me when I am designing!
3. How did you create Sunglasses?
I started with ArtPlay Palette Wayfaring. I opened solid paper no. 2 and the frame in the palette. I clipped my photo to the mask that comes with the frame, then added the photo corners. I added some brushwork around the photo and the background, and created the element cluster on the left. I also added a photo glow over the photo and changed its blending mode so that it added some color to the image. To finish, I added a title and a little text.
4. Do you put your finished pages in albums?
I keep my pages in a digital album on my computer. I have printed some calendars.
5. Often, you have blended images on your pages. What is your favorite blending technique?
I play until I find what looks best on my layout. Mostly, I use masks and experiment with the blending modes.
6. What inspires your digital art?
I am inspired by my photos. My husband and I often go on photo walks and look at all there is to see in the city. There are so many great color palettes. I love vintage and natural color palettes like the one in ArtPlay Palette Moorlands.
7. What are your favorite digital products?
I love brushes and papers! I can’t get enough.
