Water colors








I 've been fooling around with water colors. I bought these water colors quite some time ago (like years ago) and I kept meaning to give them a shot. They are just the cake palette type. I figured I give them a roll before I invested in the more expensive kind. Well I had no idea how difficult it is to paint a face with water colors. I found the flowers to be pretty easy. These are just the start of a couple of journal pages.
The first picture is the original page. Then from there on I got a little crazy with photoshop. It's amazing what you can do to these images. I think they look better than the original page. Jane

New Banner


I'm at it again....new banner. What'd ya think ? I think I'm just gonna keep on changing it . I'm having fun. What the heck ! In the new banner I have a picture of two of my dolls. The one to the right is Big Girl. She has such a huge head, the Pixie and I just started calling her big girl a couple of years ago and it just stuck. The other doll is the second doll that I owned in my life. I was about 8 and she was my first antique store purchase. So needless to say, I've had her for quite a long time.
Well that's about it.... off to a basketball game

How cool


Photoshop Elements........is the coolest!!!!! I'm having so much fun with my new camera. I'm learning how to work with photoshop. This is all new to me, it's a lot of trial and error. In my case more error, but I've enjoyed every minute of it. It's amazing what you can do to a couple of plain pictures from your studio. I'm so proud of myself. The technical stuff is not my thing. I'm a feel it in my hands and mold it kinda girl. He he that didn't come out right. You know what I mean.

To be this photogenic.........I found this sweet little girl while out and about with the Pixie a few months ago. We really don't know any info on her. We just fell in love with her. Her pretty little smile and those bright eyes, how could you not love her?

I think I'm getting a little bit better at taking pictures. That's not saying much, since I'm god awful. I had a lot of fun taking pictures of my favorite friends in my studio. This little guy so proudly sits on top of my favorite cabinet. My chair sits facing him while I'm creating. He's quite the inspiring view! Jane
