awwww.... little lisa :) Posted by Picasa

So, this is my first photoshop creation that i actually finished. The other one wasn't finished. My official first digiscrapbooking page with adobe. I love this program!!

I am proud of this because i created almost everything myself. I do love downloading free scrapbooking elements, especially papers, but i created this paper myself. The butterfly started out as a simple shape that came free with photoshop, and i layered it and sprayed the edges a little to give it the black and the wing detail. The only thing i didn't create was the silver frame for the words 'sunny mexico'. It used to say something else but i erased the text and added my own. I also played with colour a little. You may notice that every colour on the page is also a focal colour in the photo :).

Adobe Photoshop

my first pic :) Posted by Picasa

So, i am sitting at home, enjoying my day off playing on my computer. I have finally figured out how to register the copy of Adobe Photoshop Andre gave me, and i have also figured out how to 'place' pictures (bring other picture files into the pic). It's great. The above pic is my first one i've made. I played with smudging, layers, filters and circle selects.

Unfortunately, i also made my first major mistake saving. When i went back to play more with the background, i realized i had saved it as a jpg but not as a adobe file. So i lost all my layers and can't change things around easily.

So, it wasn't completely finished but i am showing off my first picture with adobe. Eventually i hope to be good enough with the program to use it for my digital scrapbooking. I think it will work great. This will be so awesome.... thanks again andre.

My CD Picture Layout

I got the link from andre's blog. I just got home from Calgary and i am relaxing on my computer... why not? Here is a bunch of pics of cd covers from cd's that i really truely enjoy. These are some of my absolute favorites. If you also own some of these cd's, speak up lol. I expect some... such as crystal owning great big sea, or fletcher owning michael buble, or andre owning U2, but if you think it might be a bit of a suprise speak up haha.
