I shouldn't have but I had to ...

Start playing with Photoshop and brushes that is.

Yay Dallas guessed my middle name. It's Eulie said like Julie but with a 'Y' sound instead of the 'J'. Was my Granmothers first name. I think it's Scottish.

And, oh no, I've been playing with Photoshop and brushes. I knew once I started I wouldn't be able to stop. I wanted to ever since I saw what Yolande and Michelle TW had done and that was it, I was hooked. Soooo fun. I spent most of yesterday downloading all these cool brushes; well it was pooring with rain, what else could I do. Had a play and here are some results. Bit over board on the brushes I know but hey I was just playing around. Will get better with practise and practise I will.
And a page for Grassroots. I've done some handstitching at the top using the triangle pattern as a template. Papers are called Native Weave and are inspired by a textile design woven by Ho-Chunk Indians of Wisconsin, Nth America.

Like the stitching on the bottom layout - very clean - and the photoshop brushes on the wave layout. You have been having fun!!

Looks great Lianne, I wish I had photoshop so I can play too :(

Delys said...

Love the wave pic too. I must have a go at this but need time to do it!!

Love that layout of you Lianne. I am avoiding digital like the plague, but its tempting for sure. I guess you could print that all off onto a transparency? I can see you'll be an expert before long.
