My Video Channel

Looking to put some content on my YouTube channel… but what? I’m into so many things and like this blog, would love to share. Not to make money, but to have a little fun, maybe learn a bit about myself. Who knows, maybe someone will watch a video and say; “Wow, I didn’t know that!”….

PSJ12 3D Button

Photoshop Journey #12… Yes, it’s back to creating something from nothing. I found that doing Photoshop challenges with actual photos was using up too much space. I’m still doing them, just not sharing in this space. For this week’s challenge, I decided to create a button, a 3D button… I got this idea (let’s face…

PSJ11 Pencil Sketch

Photoshop Journey #11… For today’s journey, I kept to my promise to keep working with photographs. In this case I started with a photo taken by my son. Who can be seen, twice, in the reflection. I was dressed up in a wig and dress for Fabulous themed party. I zoomed into the sunglasses to…

PSJ10 Art Paper

Photoshop Journey #10… I made a promise to myself last week that I would tackle something different on my Photoshop Journey this week. Something using a photo. I need to take a break from creating something from nothing in Photoshop. Time to try something new. I plan to do something with a photo next time….

PSJ9 Levitation

Photoshop Journey #9… Dropped the ball last week. Got busy, lazy, bored or maybe a combination of all three. Didn’t get around to my Photoshop Journey. In fact, I didn’t write much at all. I decided to take a crack at creating a logo, changed my mind halfway through and went for levitation. Started off…

PSJ8 Random

Photoshop Journey #8 A quick, random journey this week. I just started playing and ended up with the above. Problem is, I’m not really sure what I did. I deleted the Photoshop file. Too bad, I like the effect. I started looking at tutorials involving photos but lost interest… not sure why. Decided to venture…

In And Of Itself

There’s an interesting site devoted to English Language & Usage… English Language & Usage Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for linguists, etymologists, and serious English language enthusiasts. It’s 100% free, no registration required. I came across the site while researching the idiom “in and of itself”. Did I know it was an…

PSJ7 Patterns

Photoshop Journey #7 Today’s Photoshop Journey is all about patterns. I Googled “Quick Photoshop Tutorials” and got several results. Chose one called 10-Minute Pattern Creation by Evan Eckard. Certainly not hard in that you can pretty well do anything you want. There is no right or wrong way to do this. The hardest part is…

PSJ6 Cute TV

Photoshop Journey #6 This week I chose to create something from scratch using a tutorial with step by step instructions, no video. The tutorial; Create a Cute Television Icon from Scratch is available on the Photoshop Tutorials website. The tutorials I have done in the past have all been on YouTube and typically show the…

Forgotten Challenge

I completely forgot about my weekly Photoshop Journey challenge… Normally I use Post It notes, my Things app or even my trusty Moleskine notebook to remind me of these things. This particular task wasn’t written anywhere so easily forgotten. I thought about it on the way to work today as I was sitting back enjoying…
