Re: Onion Moon ( Just For Fun - Wanta Try It Yourself? )

I do say, the onion moon is a good one.

I think astronomers should pick one of those lunar seasons and actually call it the Onion Moon.

Re: Little Soccer Sister

[...] I've never found that one click filters get me where I want to go, but using some of those in conjunction with PS with layers and masks can get me closer. Finalizing a design that you have visualized will never to be a "one click" process. If that was the case, everyone would be an artist and...
