for the past nine months, i have been trying to teach myself photoshop. this is not an easy thing to figure out on your own. in an effort to learn stuff faster, i started poking around the internet. i followed blogs, read 'recipes'... and i experimented. endlessly.
this week, it became an O B S E S S I O N.
being that i am on vacation, i wanted to go to cape cod but that didn't happen. i didn't read a book or take a walk, or go for a ride, or go shopping, or even watch HGTV. nope. didn't do much of anything, except experiment with photoshop. i got up at 530am and went to bed at 11pm. with my computer on my lap.
i am exhausted but i learned a lot. and mostly from kim klassen. her website and blog, along with the people that post there, have not only been a great resource for learning, but also a huge source of inspiration. and because of how much i already learned there, i decided to take a photoshop class from kim klassen cafe. a real class. i already signed up, i paid and i committed. i am scared (commit?? eeeek!) but more than that, i am really excited!
now i have to figure out how to retain what i learn... not only on photoshop but on blogger, too. i have to start over, re-learn, every time i use it. i need a hard drive accessory thing for my brain, with a folder for how-to's...
meantime, i am posting some experiments... hopefully, i can remember some of how i created them :)
