Uh-oh, I've been bitten hard by the Photoshop bug. There was a time that I spent every available bit of time reading, playing, watching videos, and subscribing to Photoshop User magazine (which is included in a NAPP membership). And then, as with all things, I moved on to other things. But I saw a few things in the Yahoo! groups I belong to and heard a few things here and there and decided to try a bit of playing with pictures and BAM! it bit me. Sure hope it isn't itchy or worse yet, fatal.
While playing with Photoshop yesterday, I opened up one of my favorite pictures from this Spring, a bluebird closeup. I couldn't wait to try the art history brush on him. I tried with different sizes of brush and different tolerances until I liked what transpired. And then, I used him to make a postcard. I think I will put a shiny layer or two over it to protect it, but except for that and a message I think he is done.
I've found a fun little exercise called Friday Fill-in and here is mine:
Lots to do today to get ready for a visit to the far north (only 4 hours, but a long trip alone). I also hope to get something creative done today and I haven't even made coffee yet. Better get on it.
Don't forget to visit Wednesday's post to get into the drawing!
I will try to find a way to get to the WiFi places in order to keep up with the blog and to announce the winner of the drawing which will be decided by a random number generator some time on Monday.
