the 'art of texture' update and about that NEWS....

happy thursday,

thanks so much for all the sweetness this week.  i truly appreciate all your kind comments. 
oh my goodness it was lovely being over at shutter sisters
such a fabulous vibe coming from there. 

i wanted to pop in and share a few things. 
first of all i thought i would show you a few of the images from the art of texture class. 
in case you are debating whether or not you would like to sign up.
maybe this will help.

and secondly, i have some big news to share.
i mean big and fun and fabulous....
i am hoping to have all my ducks in a row in time to tell you a little more tomorrow. 
this week has been crazy.

it involves me and you,
inspiration, and all kinds of different mediums.. 
not just photography...but definitely photography. :)

oh and a new texture for tomorrow's freebie friday... YAY. 

btw the '2 for 2 dollar texture tuesday' was a HUGE hit. 
thank you so much.....

'sigh' of gratitude.

on with the images...
the above image is part of this week's lesson from the art of texture.
isn't that an amazing quote?  it's a chinese proverb. 
a lovely flickr friend (pixelmama) shared it with me the other day...
after i posted the story about bryce almost missing his exam. 

here's a few more class samples to wet your whistle. 


adding texture, type and grungy goodness... 
thinking this needs to be on a canvas? 
yes?  :)

lighening and softening a background...
this lilac image background was quite green originally
but with the magic of photoshop wow....
and of course we added some texture.

did i mention we are making our own textures and photoshop brushes....
pretty cool... and fun... and endless possibilities!

and even spooking things up a little ....
with the help of an awesome skeletalmess texture

kay there's more.. but surprises are always nice...

so i will leave you with this....
until next time...xxo,

I finally got to the tree lesson today, it was fabulous. I have to tell you, I have taken a few other e-courses in the past, but the way you present yours is wonderful, I love your step by step, so thorough, and I love that you are providing printable notes from each week. You are the best! I am soooo glad I took your course...Can't wait to hear your big news!
