Remembering Pleasantville

Well blog~hopping I found a new site, new to me anyways! I see they are celebrating their first birthday so obviously I am a year behind! Better late than never, I suppose.

Anyways, they do a weekly challenge on Friday and supply either the background or a photo that you have to use in your artwork. This week they supplied the beautiful lady you see in my collage. I decided to play and made this Remembering Pleasantville digi collage for my first attempt.

You can find all the great artwork here:

The elements I used for my collage are by Idgie!

PSE Learn to Love Layers

The photo of the girls was taken by my niece Carly and the flowers by Athena. This technique is combining two or more photos into one. I faded the rose photo in the girls three times to get this effect. Pretty easy to do and I love the effect.

This is two images the background is another of Athena's pictures and the angel is actually a picture of my niece Lisa, that was taken by another of my nieces, Carly at Opaque Studios. We had to use a displacement map for this lesson. Kind of fun to play with the photo's like this.

This is a photo of our adopted daughter, as we love to call her Athena. I stole this pic from her to use for this particular technique which is adding photo edges.

I am busy taking a PSE class over at LVS Online, having lots of fun too...hehehe...

Lesson 3 was fabulous and I thought I would share my pics with you. Remember I am very much in the learning stage, but I guess we have to start somewhere.

Photoshop Fun

I was playing in photoshop yesterday. So thought I would share what I created. I used a picture of my great-nephew and elements from E-lena at Pickleberrypop.

My niece is a photographer and she is turning out some amazing work. Be sure to check out her website here:

Finally finished my last house for Oh My Gothic Exchange

back of house

Here we go again, way behind but I have accomplished getting my last house done, mailed off and Heather has received it.

I am finished work for the season and looking forward to a few months off. I have lots of plans and can hardly wait for some play time. Busy cleaning my house from top to bottom, like to get that out of the way in the first few weeks. I am hoping it is just not me, but the time is flying and before we know it the Chrismas decorating will have to begin. Geesh, there is never an end to the list. Hope to get around to visiting all my fav blogs in the near future.
