OMG!! Time really gets away from me! I never mean to be so long between posts! However, my time is well-spent (at least in my own book)! LOL! I've been treating myself to weekly digital design technique lessons from Jessica Sprague, and I'm loving each and every one of them! They are called "PhotoShop Friday" and each lesson is on sale for just $1.00 each week from Wednesday through Friday. I ask you, how can a body resist such a great deal? I decided that, even though I am currently financially challenged, I can afford this treat to help further my PSE skills. Once you register at her website, you can tailor your email preferences so you don't miss a thing happening. I get a weekly reminder of what is known as "One-Buck Wednesday", and that's where you'll find these self-paced lessons for only a buck. Once you purchase the week's lesson, the instructions and video is always in your list of "My Classes" on her site so you can return to review it as often as you need. Each lesson contains a download of supplies, such as templates, background papers, and a pdf of written instructions. Each lesson also includes a video tutorial to guide you through step by step! It just doesn't get better than this if you really want to learn more design techniques, as I do!! I heartily suggest you check out this opportunity for yourselves if you dabble in digital designing at all. I've taken the first three lessons to date, and I've learned a ton already and can't stop myself from practicing the rest of each week! Your creativity will certainly take flight! Let me show you a few examples:
Above is my finished page from the first lesson where I learned to make a stroke frame, enter text on it, and delete a section of the frame around the text portion. Wow! I was impressed with myself. From this lesson, I went on to create the freebie I'm giving you below! Goodies come from knowledge!!
