An interesting Summer

During the summer months I took a couple of online classes, and met some very creative and talented ladies. It really is amazing how new horizons open up! During one such class on Shabby Chic Journalling (see my blog post of July 11th) I met Linda Vincent, who not only does fabulous journalling, but is also an amazing digital artist. Of course, I wanted to have a go, and Linda introduced me to a FREE course coming up and run by Kim Klassen on Photoshop Elements. This started last Monday the 8th November and continues until the coming Friday.
I've been playing like crazy until my brain hurts, but I think I am getting there, albeit slowly!
Anyway, I thought I would blog my first effort I am reasonably pleased with, although I appreciate I have a heluva lot to learn ........
This is a picture of the view I have across the lane from where I live...
BEFORE ............ and AFTER


Hopefully, I will learn during the week how to erase the telegraph lines!!
If you would like to register for Kim's class the next time she does it, go to the button on the right. Do visit Linda Vincent's blog - you won't be sorry. You can click on her link from the list of the places I like to visit, also on the right.
Bye for now .....

I am impressed Val. I never thought I would be interested in digital photography, never mind what you can do with it. I have a digital camera and still have a lot to learn about it. I love Linda's work - the images she creates are stunning, aren't they? Looking forward to seeing how you get on, but too much of a chicken to have a go myself!

Lovely transformation Val. Isn't Kim's class really useful? I had a great playday here with Linda on Friday and my next aim is to pick up some Photoshop tips from her.

Isn't it amazing what we can do with the computer? I'll bet you are really enjoying the course. Nice work.

I'm taking this class, too. Isn't it fun playing with the layers?

A lovely transformation Val. I signed up ages ago too and the emails have been coming in but I've just been too I'll to sit at a computer and play! I hope they may stay live for a while yet anyhow. Keep playing!
