Hmmmmmm.....


I doing my own thing here, folks! I found a terrific website for free backgrounds, etc., and they're very quirky, like - guess who! *The link is in the upper left hand corner. I have developed a fondness for "altered art," and some of this is an example of that. As soon as I can figure out how to use Photo Shop I can use it to my advantage.

Going back to the other day, when I was really down, I tried to work on my photo shop skills and kept getting so mixed up and confused. It seems that nowadays, what would've taken me five minutes to "get" something, now takes about 5 weeks. ARGH. That doesn't help my temperment one iota. So what do I do? Yeah, I quit. I won't try it again for months because I remember the frustration and don't want to go there again.

Well, phooey. Maybe I'll try again this week. Who knows which rabbit hole I may tumble down?
Thanks for listening...

I've had PhotoShop Elements for about a year now and just broke down and bought PhotoShop CSE Extended. Woo Hoo. So far, I've done a SnowGlobe with some Actions I downloaded. I can't wait for all my painting and moving and selling my other house to be finished so I can really dig into it!

Don't get frustrated - just try something else and come back to it later. At least that's what I do. I've found the learning is cumulative. One trick just sort of 'clicks' and seems to illuminate that 'other thing' I couldn't figure out before.

Big Hugs ♥xo

The new background is absolutely gorgeous and totally YOU!

I can't do a thing with PhotoShop either so I leave that sort of thing to Amanda. I'd like to learn how but just don't think I have the time to devote to it right now. If I could win the lottery and quit my job then I bet I'd have the time to learn it!
