9/1/10 The Digital World

I'm trying to teach myself Photoshop Elements and it's more than a little frustrating, but here's the first collage - images are all from Paper Whimsy.  Not exactly groundbreaking, but...... it's a start.  The biggest problem is that I really don't know how I did this! Can I do it again?  It seems I got lucky with this - I have no real understanding of it still.  Oh well, "they say" practice makes perfect.  Let's hope so.

I'm thrilled to announce I was chosen as one of Alpha Stamps Design Team Members.  I have been an admirer of the other women on the team for awhile and am honored to be in their company.  Alpha Stamps carries a wide and ever changing variety of supplies for collage, rubber stamping and jewelry making. 
There are thirteen new collage papers for Halloween and two new swaps - Halloween Dwellings Slide Mailer Swap and Skeletons in the Attic Book Swap.  Check their website for these swaps and loads of great supplies and to read about the new design team.


8/9/10 Floral Studies

Floral Study #1 - acrylics on gessoed masonite board
Floral Study #2 acrylic on gessoed masonite board

I did these floral studies a while ago and wanted to try taking photos for this blog.  Usually I scan artwork - it's much easier, but it can't always be done.  And then there's putting the images into Photoshop Elements and cropping, etc.  Well, what's life without challenges!
