Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Soartful Challenge

This is your inspiration photo for this weeks

Mask Challenge

I really had fun doing this challenge. The colorful mask is from my
Printmaster clip art. I did fiddle a bit with this image in the
photo editor in Printmaster. I wanted to lighten the picture a bit but
not alter the colors to much. If you want to see photo editing and
wonderful inspiration using this photo go to Soartful and in the sidebar are
all of the entries so far. Wonderful. June tipped me off to
her other challenge Art on the Darkside. She said I should post this
there also, so I did.
See what I have to look forward to when my new computer
complete with Photoshop Elements ever gets set up in my craft room.
Hubby is feeling pretty good now. Uhm? Maybe a nudge is needed.

Lorne and I went for Seniors Day on the Big M Casino Cruise on Friday afternoon. Our temps were to be in the low 90s. A perfect day to enjoy the ocean. I was hoping to see a whale or dolphins but we didn't. We didn't even see a bird. I didn't do any gambling and Lorne did very little. After living in Reno this was sort of tame. It was kind of fun to hear all of the sounds of a casino in action again tho. We had a very nice buffet lunch sitting at a table with a great ocean view. The food wasn't bad at all. I spent most of the afternoon up on the top deck enjoying the breeze, doing some people watching and even getting in a short nap. A very relaxing way to spend the afternoon. I really enjoy the sea air and lovely blue-green of the water. Ahhhhhh!

Dark-sider here!
Clever take to do both how you've got the feathers going out the frame as well...
RE: Photoshop ELEMENTS
I"ve only got PSE version 2...and still learning...KEEP AT IT!
Especially as newer versions have probably simplified the directions/Processing of doing digital art work even more...again
