Great times have been had

I have been so busy these last few months. I have learned so much in both Photoshop and in my mixed media ventures.

I have been participating in a live feed class on Photoshop with a group called CreativeTech. They have some wonderful classes that are free for the watching. If someone wants to watch them at their own convenience, and receive some files that help expand the knowledge, one can buy the programs at a pretty reasonable rate. I am 2 weeks from completing a 6 month course. Give them a look at

During January I took an online class from DJ Pettitt. It was called Memories and Manipulations. This was a course on Photoshop but from an artistic angle. I learned how to create brushes and to use the opacity and filters and joining layers, and so much more. I still have to go back and finish up.

This is one of the exercises that we did in class.

I also attended a retreat in Los Gatos. I will report on that in the next post.
