I've been playing with brushes in Photoshop lately and decided to try a digital quilt block with hand stitching on it. I subscribe to Fannie's blog and she is working on a fantastic quilt (a real one, not a digital one) and as a former quilter I am loving checking out her work. I am sure her blog influenced my decision to try making a digital one.
I am also playing with the Wacom tablet and the calligraphy brushes that came with Photoshop trying to get in some practice in creative lettering in another way. My signature at the end of this post was made that way. As you can see I definitely need practice, but I am loving playing!
Another group I am in - mostly lurking - is digital nuts - talk about a talented bunch of people. They are working on self portraits. Most of them are taking pictures of themselves and digitally altering them in some manner. For now I have reworked my picture that is associated with this blog. My only problem is that it is rather a Dorian Gray kind of picture. I don't know how to make it look like my age without messing it up. I am thinking of taking a picture of myself using Photo Booth and digitally altering that one for a more realistic representation of myself.
We are having a very strange, but not unpleasant, November this year. It has been in the 50s and 60s most of the month and we are expecting more of the same for another week at least. When the weather turns it is going to be such a shock!
Hope you have a great, creative day!
