Marie Laveau/2018

I feel guilty that while Piet is embarked on serious learning with meticulous plans and tasks, I am just entertaining myself playing with toys. I was intrigued with Steve's post about Adobe Capture, viewtopic.php?f=90&t=4410, a phone ap that lets you create vector shapes and then import them into PS via Adobe CC. It didn't work exactly as advertised, but I was able to make a shape on my phone from a photo of New Orleans (looking up Chartres St) that I'd taken with my camera and uploaded into Adobe CC. Then I could export it to dropbox and place it in a PS document and build an image around it with my usual photos, textures, elements, etc. To some of you sharp eyed folks the lady may be remembered as the amorous fortuneteller, and the lamp is one I found online and have used before. There's textures, custom brushes, watercolor layers, color shift work, and some stuff pulled out of a background with stars on it. I like it well enough to keep working on it, so feel free to offer suggestions or download it and add stuff to it yourself.

Let me get this straight... Piet is trying to turn squirrel nuts into a pair of tits, and you feel guilty that you are just entertaining yourself playing with toys. You need to talk to a counseler. Or perhaps just talk to yourself! <Big Grin>

Entertaining yourself is exactly the right answer - Good for you Min!!!

Ha! At least you had some sort of plan. I just dabble around and see what happens, then grab something and cram it in the frame. My greatest lack, according to all my reading, is that I have no plan, no vision, no clear path. It is that way when I write as well. I see a shiny thing (or think of it), snatch it up, then that shiny thing asks for another, then they conspire to demand more, and I simply bumble along behind them watching what they do.
