In The Learning Stages

Following What Gail did
Me, messing around with the layer effects ..Not very good
but oh so much fun.
I know, I know I'm way behind the times when it comes to digital art. So I have broken down and purchased my first computer program Adobe PhotoShop Elements 7. I have used other editing programs that come with the computer. And for the most part I'm self taught. But sometimes you just need help. In this case a lot of help. So I'm taking a class from Creative Workshops with Gail Schmit. So here are my first two projects I did this weekend.
So I'll be sharing my progress with you. Let's hope I make some.

Hi Terri..This is Gale . I am taking the class also. Like you I haven't done much with Photoshop( I have PhotoshopCS) I hope you are enjoying the class as much as I am. Your rendition is fab! Finally I am starting to understand the layer system a bit. Well just wanted you to know that I think you did good!
Love and Laughter,

Hi Terri, Deep sigh....I love what you can do with this software, but easy to mess things up royally in the process. I love the sparkles, don't you? I tried making something today on my own, but my fingers turned everything to grayscale! I guess, time to take a break. I am beginning to really enjoy this class even in spite of my temporary setbacks. I can't, wait for Lesson 2!!

Terri said...

Thanks you two. I really need all the encouragement I can get.
I love the sparkles too! I look forward to lesson 2 aswell. said...

hello Terry,
Your first work "Following what gail did" is superb I liked it very much. Keep this good work going.Remember one thing, if you have the passion in your mind to do things, every thing, that you aspire for, is possible.

Hi Terri,
I was thinking about taking that class..I am trying to teach myself photoshop but being used to desktop publishing.. it's quite a (frustrating) different process! Your work looks great..are you enjoying the class?
Thanks for your comments.. I did win a lot in OWOH.. but mostly met a lot of great people!

Terri said...

Yes! the meeting of people really has been a priceless gift.
Again thanks for all of your encouragement.
