Deeper and deeper

Paper and feathers from class materials
Brushes: Destroyed Heraldry and Romantic Disasters from bittbox.com and a-a-m stains from diviantart.com

I am a learner.  It's just part of who I am.  There is a constant drive to learn more, whether it's about something I read, some part of my genealogy research, or how to use Photoshop more effectively (or creatively). Digi in Deeper started at JessicaSprague.com earlier this week.  I was so busy with work and family that I didn't really start the class until earlier today while Johnny napped.  All I can say is, I can't work fast enough.  I am loving it!  Working through Jessica's classes makes me fall in love all over again with aspects of Photoshop that I don't normally think of using.  They also teach great skills to give layouts that extra pop.

In the layout above, I made the starburst paper that is blended into the background.  I made that!  I've always seen papers like that and wondered how in the heck designers did that.  And now I know!  It's just a great feeling (and isn't as hard as I would have guessed).  I also think I'll be using these photos a few more times because I love 'em.  Love 'em, love 'em, love 'em.

Now I'm off to get through another layout.  This class is jam packed with goodness, and THREE lessons each week rather than the usual one.  One down, three to go, just to catch up for this first week!  It's a good thing all materials are available forever!
