Well, I finished my two-week class at Jessica Sprague online in Photo Editing: Frame-ups & Special Effects. I'm feeling like I'm sorry that it's over, it was so much fun and totally self-paced. It was a groovy thing to look forward to her daily class notice in my email box and know that I could work on my class and projects at my own pace when I could find the time. I'm just going to have to take some more of her classes; they're GREAT!! I took the ones for my software I'm trying to learn, PSE6 & PSE7, and it totally helped me sooo much! I don't feel so very lost now inside that software, so I'm going back for more of her step-by-step instructional videos!! Yipee! With her and with Linda of Scrapper's Guide I am bound to conquer that software eventually!! I'm determined. Let me show you a few things I learned how to make that I'm so proud of (I can't show you everything, too much, just the ones I am super-proud of):

Here's a storyboard I made; too cool to now know how to do these so easily!!

Then I learned how to make what they call a 9-grid (9 identical photoholders in grid shape); take a look at these (one in natural color with a little brush work, the other with hue and saturation adjustments except for the middle photo which is a really neat technique too):

I'm just all enthused with what I've learned in just two weeks! The nice thing too is that the class and instructional videos are always on the site in your account so you can go back and refer to them and watch them over and over again. You'll never have to feel like you forgot a technique. How nice!!

Well, if you've made it this far with me, you certainly deserve a Freebie! So here it is; #7 in my Abstract QP+ series. I believe this one has a light plum frame, and here's the preview:


Have fun with it. I have about three more of these to give to you, and then I've made some brand new grunge papers, both plain and floral, that are coming to you free soon!! Yipee! Who doesn't love grunge?!! Leave me some love if you download.

I have a lot more to share with ya, so I'll be back posting soon! Stay tuned in!
