Photoshop Fun

Last night while waiting for J to finish homework before watching the State of the Union and Sunday's episode of Big Love, I started learning more about Photoshop.

As some of you may recall, I received a copy of Photoshop Elements 9 from J's mom for Christmas.  I have slowly been learning the ropes, creating the image from yesterday's project post for example.

I decided to first try my hand at creating a birthday card for my sister, who turns 20 next week and who we will see this weekend!  I am taking a risk with posting her card here first but am counting on her not reading this between now and then with her busy architecture course load.  She loves Lady Gaga, so the card is pretty self explanatory.  I downloaded the image from Feed Your Soul: the Free Art Project as created by Fee Harding and added some text.

While I was on the site, I came across a really cute print that I decided to modify for our apartment.  Again this was taken from Feed Your Soul: the Free Art Project and created by Angela Vandenbogaard. Cooler heads might have kept this one under wraps too, possibly sharing it with J on Valentine's Day but I was so excited to show what I had learned, I showed him right away.  Perhaps I will still have it printed and framed for Valentine's Day or what was our anniversary (February 20th) until we got married this summer and got a new anniversary!
What do you think, friends?  Have any Photoshop tips?  I'd love to hear them!


  1. that's adorable K-T! I think you should still print it out!

  2. Starlet: I did end up printing it out when I printed the card for my sister--she loved it and it is now hanging in her studio at school (she's an architecture major) Now I just need to find a frame for it :)
