I’ve enJOYed this theme [or shall I say Bonnie’s “encouraging directions”] BEcause it is something I have been DOing, sort of as a challenge for myself each day, in my daily Gratitude on my I Love You, Currie blog.
[And while I’ve NOT been using PDPA textures but Kim Klassen textures, I love the idea of starting with something and building over it and within it.]
I have discovered through this, at o’dark-thirty each morning when I choose to get up and write for 2-3 hours, that digital fiddling is remarkably forgiving and simply good fun.
I take one texture and one of my photos or scans, and I fiddle away until I have a little something-something to share with my Gratitude.
It’s like the deliciousness a warm from the oven scone with my tea…
This has taught me that practise makes things more intuitive.
It has illustrated how tiny and simple steps can make HUGE and BEautimous possibilities happen.
And it has given me a much braver approach than how I used to navigate.
BEcause I DO this in Picasa and the Pixlr, generally Pixlr Express, sometimes Pixlr Editor, I am no longer banging my head up against PSE8 and all that I DON’T understand there.
Now that is what is true for me, and I am sure were I to get down to business and learn PSE8, I would find out how to ring its bells and blow its whistles. I’m just saying…
Without further ado, here is what I’ve stirred-up for Photo Art Friday 8 March 2013.
