Photoshop Images

For those of you have never used Photoshop or other photo enhancing programs, I encourage you to give them a try. The images shown here were painted once and then altered through the use of Photoshop. This is one of my original paintings and I caution you to either use copyright fee images, your own original work or get permission from the creator or owner of the copyrighted image. The top image is closer to my original painting (although a little more 'green' than the original). I have shared it with you in a previous post. I wanted to use this image in a future jewelry project and felt I needed bolder colors and obviously needed to resize it. I thought I would share my before and after...

Below is the after which much bolder color and warmer hues. Notice also the fancier 'signature'. If only I could write that pretty.

In the meantime I have been busy riding my bicycle while the weather is nice! After the winter we had it is difficult to stay inside.

I promise I will soon get and post a photo of the latest 'found object' necklace I just completed. I have also been looking through the archives to find my May challenge project. I am going with the challenge of learning the Peyote stitch. Most bead weavers know this stitch and actually started with it. I, on the other hand, have not had much luck with it but have found directions for rings as a starter project. I will share more details soon. It is May, so I need to get busy!

Happy May Day!

Your painting is wonderful! Photoshop is hard for me to have much patience with,, I poke at it now and again. One of these days I may click with it.
Happy riding!
