I’ve been working on getting my business cards made.  I probably would have had them done a long time ago, but I wanted them to be “perfect”.  Eventually I will have perfect cards, but for now I have adequate cards.  I have 500 very orange cards that match my very orange couch.  I like the orange, but it makes me realize that I have to calibrate my monitor.  These cards are ORANGE!   Yes Kymm, there is a difference between print and web.  I will post an image of the card later.

Meanwhile, I’ve been working on upgrading my skills.   I was reading Photoshop User magazine and I found a very nice text effect. (June 2011 edition)

Gold Text Effect

Gold Text Effect

It gives the effect of gold.  It looks very nice.  I put the lettering on a background that I made using “clouds” and “glass” filters.

Brand New Start

I am an enthusiastic student of Photoshop and Web Design. I love a creative challenge and I am always looking to learn new things. This website is about exploring my creativity.

    • The Death of Creativity July 17, 2016
      It is not pretty, but I had to make myself finish it. I recently got a subscription to the Creative Cloud. So I had to play with Animate. I get really caught up in “getting it right”… so much so that I don’t do it at all. This is a message to myself to just […]

    • Today’s Post Brought to you by the Letter K January 18, 2016
      My latest endeavor has been teaching myself to use Illustrator.  As a friend put it, “The pen tool is the devil.”  I decided not to let that discourage me. I decided that I need to create something, anything, so that I would feel that I am getting somewhere with the program.  The colors are weird […]

      In December 2009 I house/ pet sat for my aunt and uncle in Dixon California.  I had never been to California. Besides house privileges I also had the use of their Prius.  I was able to travel about quite a bit.  San Francisco, Sacramento, Sausalito, Redwood City, Calaveras County. It was an amazing time that […]
    • To Illustrate a Point October 21, 2015
      I’ve come to realize that I have been subscribing to Photoshop User magazine since 2009.  I was going through my collection and realized that I still have some of them in the plastic sleeves, never looked at.  Why have something if you are not going to use it.  In the April/May 2009 issue I found […]

      I have an affection for old cookbooks.  I love the garish, hideous photography.  The colors are off and the food looks unappetizing.
