I finally broke down and bought Photoshop Elements version 8, so I can do some digital collage work, just for fun. I enrolled in an online class to help me along as it can be very confusing using such a complex program! I'm sure having fun!! (and wasting more time than I should, playing!) Playing with a whole lot of layers, erasing backgrounds from a picture so you can use just part of it (the little girl below), hunting for images, you can get lost for hours!! Anyway, the above was something that just sort of happened that I liked, even though there are only a few layers. I started out with more, but they ended up getting buried somehow and I like the way it looked so .......there ya go! I would like to touch it up some, but afraid I'll end up losing what I've already got, so will go back at it when I've learned more.
This evolved from a challenge posted on Art Freebies.........the image given was of the suitcases, you have to make something with the image. I had a few things going, but ended up with this, which is fairly simple in the digital world, but kept me busy for quite a while.
I am now going to sit down and watch a chick flick! I haven't watched tv lately at all and there is actually a good movie on right away!
