I started taking a new class last week and I am loving every minute of it! Digital Art Journaling over at Jessica Sprague has taught me so much already and I'm only on lesson 2 (yes, I'm behind ;). Jessica partnered with Nancie Rowe Janitz, on this class and I love her designs and mad digi skills.
The prompt for lesson 1 was Heart, and this is what I came up with...
Isn't that fun!?! Oh I just love the lessons and all the goodies that came in the kit too. And something that I am still in awe over is that I got to make MY OWN HANDWRITING FONT! I think it's the coolest thing since sliced bread. I hand-wrote the alphabet and doodled some funky dinkbats for symbols that I know I'll never use, then I scanned it and e-mailed it to the team...next thing ya know, I had my own font sent back to me to upload. I just love it! I'll have to share it with you soon :)
Another awesome thing about digi-scrapping/journaling, or Photoshop in general...is that I get to make pages like this, but not actually make any mess, or have to wash any brushes or clean up splattered paint. Now, don't get me wrong...I do love to make a mess in the studio on an almost daily basis, but when there is that rare occasion where I just don't feel like cleaning up (ya know, because I spend all day cleaning up after my 3 crazy children and my lovely husband ;), this is a nice change! Or if I'm traveling...I can still feel like I'm getting my creative fix but just get to grab the computer and go. Sweeeet!
Are you/have you taken any art or creative courses that you loved? Tell me, don't be shy.
p.s. I threw my back out Monday morning while I was lifting weights (oh the irony ;) and have been laid up on a heating pad, barely able to walk ever since...so it's been nice for me to be able to still be creative and not have to bare the pain of sitting upright in a hard chair. See...so many uses for learning to be creative digitally too.
