I finally broke down and got Photoshop Elements a few weeks ago. I found it on sale and with a rebate so what the heck, right? Mike has been trying to get me to take a Photoshop class for muchos years. Then the other day I came across Susan Tuttle's book on digital photography and it got me thinking. So I ordered the book and had the program, but where to start? Although I find that I am pretty good at self teaching, I found that I was so intimidated by PSE that I felt I needed someone to hold my hand. In comes Lani's Fotoshop Fun class and voila... my very first photoshop creation. I have to give credit to Paree Erica for the background and The Graphics Fairy for the lovely ladies. It's not the most fantastic image but for my first (and at 1:00 in the morning) I'm feeling pretty proud.
I have 5 amazing people in my life, 4 under the age of 11. Every day I learn something new from them all. In the midst of homework, diapers and laundry, I am working to get my creative mojo back, one step at a time.
