Day 59 – Another Birthday Card

February 28, 2010

I made this card for Tony yesterday, but I didn’t like how it looked printed out.  It’s totally digital.  When I printed it, it looked very flat and dull.  Maybe I should have used photo paper.  Anyway…I like the design….just didn’t like how it looked printed out.


Day 58 – Happy Birthday Tony

February 27, 2010

Today is Tony’s birthday!  I made this card for him today. 

Day 57 – Finished My LO

February 26, 2010

Ok, here is my finished LO.  I love this saying….It’s All About Me!  I think that is so funny!  It’s not meant to be arrogant…it’s just a play on words…since I talk about the many roles I play.

Day 56 – A Little Spring on a Dark and Dreary Day

February 25, 2010

Today is yucky outside!!! Dark and dreary!  But I looked out the window and saw that some of my flowers from last year had started to bloom!  So nice and colorful!  I just had to take a picture of them to post here.

Day 55 – Me, A Work in Progress

February 24, 2010

This LO is only partially finished, but I had to post something for today before I leave for work….so this is it…I’ll post the finished pic or update this one tomorrow.  There are a lot of different techniques going on here…masks, brushwork, sepia tone effects, etc.  This LO is for my Jessica Sprague Wacom Pen Tablet class although the only thing on this that I have used the tablet for is the ‘stitching’ look.  I prefer using the mouse at this time…trying to get more proficient with the pen tablet, but today I’m in a hurry to get something posted before work! lol

Day 54 – DYL Week 8, Still on Emphasis

February 23, 2010

We’re still working on ’emphasis’  in my Design Your Life class.  The ’emphasis’ in the layout is the big picture…and the big type.  The picture of Preston on the pony had a lot of unnecessary distractions going on in the background, so I created a Levels adjustment layer and cranked up the white and erased what was left in the background after adjusting the levels.  Then I added some noise to give it a little different look.  I also created the background blue dotted ‘paper’.

Day 53 – Cuckchansi

February 22, 2010

About 2 weeks ago, Tony and I went up to the hills to the Indian Casino Cuckchansi and had a nice lunch and played the slots for a little bit.  Of course I didn’t win anything!!
