Maiden Voyage into PS!

DH surprised me the other day. While upgrading my PC, he had to make a Staples* run for a new scanner and came back with with Photoshop Elements 6.0. !!!

I decided to post it for those of you that have not yet explored the digital world of collage and photo/image editing. I spent 5 hours last night on my VERY first attempt and then lost it! Now I am careful to SAVE! After another 3-4 hours tonight, voila!

Here is my very first collage using custom brushes (chinese chop used for both borders & "shadow-like" bumble bee).



*Staples is an office supply store in the US & elsewhere

That is gorgeous, a very good first try! I would love to get one of the photo shop programs, if only the economy one but am afraid that I will become obsessed with it. lol Hmmmm after seeing your collage maybe I'll take the chance. It looks like it is so much fun. Linda
