My Backyard Collage



Ok so I know I am posting this on day seven. I have a good excuse, really I do! I created this collage yesterday for my MySpace site. Basically I took some pictures that I took of some budding trees in our yard, and a caterpillar. I cropped them in PhotoShop, and created a frame for each. It was pretty fun. I actually created the frames from scratch, and I was quite pleased with the beveled look that was achieved.

So that was yesterday. I couldn't post until tonight because the Photobucket site and my Internet connection were fighting. I suppose they made up, because I was able to upload it this evening.

So on to Day 7 and some sketching...or something else creative.

BTW-Kudos to Tony LaRocca for letting me know that I was having readability issues on the MySpace page. Thus giving me the challenge motivation for the day :-).

PhotoShop Fun

Saturday's are my deadline days for my assignments. If I can do anything creative on Saturday's then I can do something creative anyday. I really was pushing the clock tonight. I decided in light of the holiday, I would do some PhotoShop play. Nothing special...but fit's the description of something creative everyday in May :-)

EDM Challenge #2-Draw a Lamp

This little darling creature is a lamp that I remember from my childhood. No it wasn't in my, or my brother's, room. This lamp belonged in our mom's room. I had completely forgotten about it until my aunt pulled it out of Mom's closet while helping her pack for the move to a subsidized apartment. Since space is limited in my mom's new "utility" apartment my boys have inherited this little guy.
It actually sits on the glass top desk/table in our living room/office. I may leave it there, I have been considering changing the color scheme of my living room to warm orange, purple, and brown, anyway. I think this little guy will fit right in, and add a bit of fancifulness. I have yet to replace the shade, but I kind of like the balance and simplicity that the plain bulb gives. This is one of those bathroom bulbs that can be used without a shade anyway.

EDM Challenge #117- Draw Something Round

























This is a representation of a pot holder that my husband's grandma has. I love the play of words. It is a "round tuit", perfect for the procrastinator who has a habit of saying, "Oh, I'll do it when I get around to it...". Obviously, his grandma has a round to it, so no more excuses for putting things off. Of course anyone that has met her would have a hard time believing that she has said that a day in her life!

I did have to use some creative liberties on it. For it has been over a year and a half since we have been able to visit her. I did call my husband, at work, and he seems to think it is brown and orange. He did say not to quote him on that, though....oops ;-).
