stand out

I’m really enjoying the Summer of Colour Challenge at Twinkle Twinkle because of the great range of media that people are using and because of my own reactions to using only one colour range, including those that I tend to shy away from.  I am using the challenge to play with Photoshop Elements to make interesting canvases for some of the my favourite Dr Seuss quotes.

I used the gradient tool and some brushes to create the background and flat dots.  The raised dots use the bevel layer style.  Nothing particularly flash technique wise but I think it is powerful as a piece.

If you are interested in trying some digiart techniques on Photoshop Elements then you might be interested in the new hour long one on one buddy session covering three techniques for creating digiart backgrounds that  I’m offering on DigiScrap Buddy.

I love the pink background and the quote, Helena, but I'm mostly excited about your offer for the one-on-one PSE class! I need to figure out a time when I can do that, but I TOTALLY want to!!! What an awesome idea - thanks for offering it up.

Looks like you and I will be meeting through Skype really soon! I just need to figure out my webcam issues and then I'll let you know...
