A little corner snapshot of my project that I'm working on for the online class I'm taking. In this photo is my mini sketch book, butterflies, "dream" expression from Paper Source, paper clip, paper accent dove by Marcel Schurman, pink and white striped tissue paper (which I tore) by Hallmark. You know how I love to play stylist! (^•^)
It's interesting playing with photos and the things you can do with them, like, add a dotted border:
and add textures:
I can fiddle with this stuff all day. I'm still learning and I find that the internet is a great place to learn. I am wowed by the pros online who know how to do this stuff and who take the time to share their knowledge with all of us. Here are a few links to sites that I've found very useful information from if you're interested in this stuff too: Coffee Shop and Pugly Pixel. You can also find tutorials on Flickr and tons on Youtube, just type in the words: texture tutorial (or whatever you want to learn) in the search box. You'll be surprised at all the info out there...just don't bake anything while you're online because it'll get so interesting that you might forget about the oven, oops.
P.S., Thank you to Katrina of Pugly Pixel for the great tutorial on creating a dotted border. I applied what I learned to my photos above. xo
