Yipee, Skipee!!! I learned something new!


I have to begin by saying I'm not sure about this blogging thing...the way I write and create is a bit like molasses  so I'm going to take the slow road...

But I am so proud of myself...I learned something new today in Photoshop!  I had wanted to make a vertical watermark for the longest time.  Well...though it took awhile, I created an alternative to my standard one.  Check it out on this card I uploaded to SCS yesterday for the Limited Supplies.  Funny thing...I had been unable to use my original watermark for some odd reason...and knowing so little about Photoshop, I couldn't figure out what my problem was!  Well somewhere in that grey matter a lightbulb flashed  'click on the drag' box...amazing it worked... 'all of a sudden'!  So girls, if there is any one left who doesn't know how to do this, I'd be happy to share!!!

Enjoy where you are today.


My header photo is out my kitchen window.  That is beauty berry...sets the berries beginning in August and last through the winter.  I have such a variety of the little birds who feast all through the cold.  My plaque is one of my favorite sentiments..."TODAY IS A GIFT that is why they call it the PRESENT!

Hi Susan!!! You are wayyyy ahead of me...I don't use photoshop....I use kodakgallery for photo editing and "paint" for adding my text to photo's....I actually have Photoshop elements...have had it for at least 2 years and have yet to load it for some reason {rolling my eyes..}. Anyways, Lovely card and great new header!!!

Susan a vertical watermark is a splendid idea and your creation is just right in size, style etc. I just may have to case ya! BTW, this card is gorgeous too!

Gorgeous card - love the embossing on the DP and the paper hardware! Congrats on the PhotoShopping! The vertical watermark is a nice look, and there are many times I wish my horizontal one would fit... perhaps I should CASE your watermark!
hugs, Jami

Well - you are a billion years ahead of me - I have not yet attempted a watermark on Adobe photoshop 6 although I know Kurtis has a video on it- just haven't found the time yet!!! Love the cuttling on this card and fun piano - and your lovely berry plant on your banner!
