a bonsai, some water paints and a cell phone

Heres how I made this. Firstly I did a sketch of the Bonsai by tracing a shadow it cast onto my bedroom wall. I then painted the tracing using black watercolour paint. Finally, i took a photo of the painting using my cell-phone(which only takes 640x480resolution images) and edited this in photoshop. I used a simple two colour gradient for the background, then duplicated the photo of the painting, setting each layer to overlay - then I used the paint-daubs brush effect to get the final look. Yummy!
