As best I can I am limiting my computer time for the next while. It helps, actually it helps a lot, but I really DO enJOY my digital fiddling time, so I am trying to get in at least a couple of fiddling times each day.
The two photos I've settled on for Photo Art Friday this week are much more composites, a funny realisation I had as I was fiddling away.
The first I played with a LOT in Picasa and then in Pixlr Express. I've been shying away a bit from textures the last while, at least in the one [and so far only] way I've learnt to use them.
Yet others here have talked about textures and layers and I thought, HEY, I know how that would work!! So I did it. I used a bunch of PDPA textures, Age It, Scratched Lens, and Vintage Vellum, and ah-HAH!! I even knew how to find them AFTER in my Recent Items List!!
Isn't this amazing the things we learn going blind into the digital fiddlish frontier!!!
The next one is actually part of a larger piece that I cropped and fiddled with. In this one I like the way the shadows play off the windows onto the fire escapes and then about the bricks.
I also used the Antique Me texture in this one along with Age It. Really very interesting to fiddle effects with textures and overlays. I think this may BE why I need to limit my computer times...
So that's it and that's all from me and I surely will BE looking for you all over the next couple of months during our PAF hiatus.
As I shared with Bonnie when I read of her taking a break, I think it may well BE a blessing in disguise for me. Still, I really especially love this part of my week and connecting with you all.
BE Well and Stay Well and EnJOY the little things in Life. See you in June and I thank you one and all AGAIN and AGAIN for your kind words of encouragement as I continue healing my banged-up brain.
You've no idea how VERY MUCH your time to write has helped me. You are some amazing and wondrous human beans and I wish everyone were as blessed as I've been in this time of really needing to know I'm NOT just out here whistling in the wind.
