Beyond Layers Day 75 : Celebrating Growth
Today, Kim asked us to take a moment to acknowledge the progress we've made so far in the Beyond Layers Class the last 8 months. Through the class, I've met some neat people around the world : Bev in Indiana; Julia in Scotland; Eija in Finland, and Mary Ann in LaCrosse who likes barns in Wisconsin.
I decided to make a little "movie" with some of my favorite images from BL class assignments so far. It's a nice way to review the work so far. I've come a long way with PhotoShop Elements. I remember how frustrated I was with it a year ago ... This class has been a tremendous help! I had no idea what Actions were, or Brushes. I knew about Textures, but I had no idea how to use them in images. I took some risks--especially with the Vasalisa pictures, hiring a model and investing in props.
For this photo montage, I used Picasa's Movie Maker, then uploaded it to You Tube. The hardest part was picking a fitting song! It's Syd Straw's "Golden Dream."
