I do have a limited bit of knowledge with Photoshop and have CS4. I needed to get a quick refresher course from my 20 year old daughter for some options that I knew how to use last year, but have purged since then. Off to my Paper Whimsy folder to see what I had in the Hybrids that I could utilize in my creations. Found enough glorious images that I could begin my spiral into what I like to call....obsession.
So the obsession began by sending me on over to the PW Shoppe to start stocking up on MORE images. I spent about an hour deciding which ones I wanted, and then because of a slow server...spent another 2 1/2 hours downloading them. It really shouldn't take that long...
If you don't know me...I LOVE turquoise...and I LOVE turquoise & copper. But I also like other colors that enhance the delicious color I call my current favorite. Something else you should know about me....I love
monochromatic. I could have easily used turquoise flowers (if they'd been available) and been quite content with it.
I'm also very fond of Steampunkery....so I had to create this fun little page to satisfy that whim. I love the fact that in the PW images...if you use the PNGs, you can easily copy & paste them into your image.
Each of these pieces uses PW images only. "Cogs" & "harmonious" have two layers each for backgrounds with the top layer's opacity being set much lower.I can really see me easily spending every waking hour playing with my new found delight.
If you haven't already tried your hand at Digital Art, perhaps you now have a little confidence to make the attempt...
By the looks of things, it appears that I need to spend a little time figuring out my Blog and how to get it all pretty and such. :)
