no snow today, just a bit of ice when we got up. we ran errands, picking up meds for presley at the vet, cashing checks at the bank, then browsed the book store and had a wonderful italian lunch. yum! stocked up on the week's groceries and came home to pajamas and a cuppa tea. i read on someone's blog (i'm so sorry but i can't recall whose blog it was) that we are to post photos of our morning cuppa so i decided to play around with that idea for awhile. i took the above photo, cropped it and added a cool artistic filter in photoshop. then i added the type. i'm fairly new to photoshop and literally learn by exploration. i usually save 8-10 different versions of a project and then pick my fave. it's fun and i feel good about learning new creative things.
this photo was done in photoshop as well. i opened the jpeg in photoshop and selected the filter, stylize, trace contours feature. you can control the thickness of the lines, etc. then i added layers of text in different coordinating colors. too much fun!!!
i also made a new profile photo where i look wickedly blue!!
i need to break down and buy the printer i want so i can get some new things into etsy!!
i'm thinking of doing a give-away. stay tuned for details soon!
