Not been feeling up to much this weekend and the weather has been pants! Rain, rain and more rain with strong winds.
The lack of fresh air and the tablets have just made me feel really groggy. Last night I decided to open up the emails I have been receiving from Jesisca Sprague Photo editing and special effects workshop I signed up for.
I only have a couple of photos on my laptop, none that are really suitable for the workshop, but have still had great results. I cannot wait to play on some more suitable photos. Its been great to learn how to do things right. I am all self taught and muddle my way through photo shop. This workshop has shown me techniques i know how to apply, but in the right way, and there have been such great masks, brushes and links to some gorgeous texture sites. I have played with textures before, again self taught, and its been great to play again, i forgot how much i love them! Here are a few of my favourite techniques;
Frame and brush
Texture, Frame, Text and Brush..

Sepia, texture, brush and TTV.

Is anyone else doing the workshop? I say doing, it actually finishes today or tomorrow, I am just behind, LOL. Would love to know what you think of it and to see some of your great photos.
Pencil Lines sketch 144 went live tonight with Kimmy Sonksen, who is an original PL girl! Great to have her back as a guest. We were honoured to be sponsored by Upsy Daisy as well. This evening I also sent out Pencil Lines first newsletter. Have you had yours?!

I used Upsy Daisy "Walk in the Park" collection for my layout of Peter and Lilly holding hands. You can just about see Izzy in the distance on her bike!

Hope you all had a great weekend
Thanks for stopping by
