Happy Friday!...Art Creations Friday Entry...



I hope everyone had a wonderful week! We are having a little taste of Spring here in Texas and I am enjoying it so! Just one more week and then we get to have the big draw for the Giveaway!!! I can't wait! Thank you everyone who has signed up and if you haven't then, "Git over there!" I can't believe how big OWOH is this year. Lisa may need to make this her full time job! LOL!!!


The image this week for Art Creations Friday is a lovely young woman from the early 1900's. I used her to practice my hair-do and make-up skills in Photoshop. It's HARD to get it right and I am not too pleased but I do like how her hair turned out. I turned her into a little love note since it's so close to Valentine's day.



Well, the roses are a complete bust and the make-up is looking pretty scary (I'll put that in my 'Bad Art' file) but, I really do like how the hair looks. I put in some natural highlights! LOL!!! I learned a whole bunch of shading techniques this morning, that's for sure!

Here is my final photoshop egg piece. I see eggs in my sleep. I need to get something else to work on! LOL!!

My mind is completely gone I am sure. I see a vampire showing her fangs!! :-) I really must find time to fiddle with my PS Elements. maybe, someday, until then, I'm enjoying looking at what you do.

Tess! When I had her enlarged to pixels her teeth WERE pointy! I am totally going to make her into a Vampire. thanks Sweetie! Love, Jamie

Jamie, you are too hard on yourself. This is a beautiful entry. I think I must have missed something. Maybe it's my small cataract. I don't see anything wrong with her lovely makeup or her teeth.

I think you do an amazing job with photoshop. This is such lovely work. Well done!

But, I am lost, I swear the little pic under your link on my blog showed a picture of a star wars person. How strange! I don't see it here! This was just as nice to find though!

I just stumbled upon your etsy site this morning so it's interesting that I followed links to your blog.

Love the eggs especially.
