Digital Goodness

How are you guys doing tonight? I just finished 6 straight hours of tutoring elementary students, and my brain is fried, but I love my job! I couldn't wait to put up a new post. Blogging is such therapy for me and helps me relax. Plus, you guys are the coolest!! It totally makes my day that you'd spend a few minutes with me. Thank you!

Now the digital goodness...

I've gotten a few emails from friends asking about Photoshop Elements tips and tricks. I am no expert, let me tell you! I did however, want to pass on to you a really cool site... Jessica Sprague. I have not taken any of her online classes yet, but I'd love to! She also has some wonderful digital products you can easily apply to photos, like the one I edited below.

Below is a picture that I took a few days ago at Catalina Island (Kahuna's parents took all of us... 8 adults and 7 grandkids all under one roof. Can you say CRAZY?!). Anyway, I just digitally water colored the picture using a few of Jessica's textures. It was seriously simple!



I love that Jessica's classes are online and "at your own pace". I hope to take one this fall. Anyone want to join me?

ME!! I have had her site in my favorites for probably a year and have never taken the time to really (REALLY) look at it. I need to make time to learn the things I want to learn!! That is why I depend on you :)

LOVE the picture...I wish I was there!

How neat!!! I signed up for one of her classes, though I have not "taken" it, yet! I also love that it is all online and I can do it whenever I want. Now, I just need to get started!

That class sounds right up my alley! Your picture is amazing! The edit is amazing and the going there in real life I'm sure is amazing!

That is a beautiful photograph. I am sure that would look wonderful printed on a large canvas and hung on a wall somewhere.
I haven't been to Catalina Island since I was in grade school.
Wishing you a scent-sational day!
