Digital Fun


I began playing with my digital software again. This is in Illustrator. I wanted a new cover photo for my Facebook page and decided to play with the shape and distortion tool. I like that I can buy a monthly subscription to Adobe products now. It gives me all their products for that subscription whereas before I had to buy the high dollar software. Needless to say I had not upgraded in years. I was still using the old CS2 version from college. Yes, ancient. 🙂 I am looking forward to learning the many other Adobe products now that it comes with the subscription.

I am one of those types that have to have several projects going. I know I shouldn’t but oh well. I figure if I get deadlocked on one I can do the other project. This is all preparation for designing my book cover. Of course, I enjoy it as well.

My son asked me what I was doing.

I said doodling. 🙂

Roses are Red

2bcreative-roses-oil-paintingI am beginning to relearn all my Adobe software, it will take me all year. LOL. I am up for the challenge. I must have a break from cleaning house you know. 🙂

I took a picture of the beautiful roses my hubby gave me for Valentines Day last year,  I uploaded it, and cropped out some of the background. The video I watched today showed some neat filters that I had not dabbled with yet. I really like this one, it is the oil painting filter. I look like I actually painted it. I have yet to try my hand at actual oil painting, I keep putting that off. I would rather stick to acrylic and watercolors.

I added my business name to it so I could have a profile picture for my facebook page. I think it turned out ok. I have a lot to learn though.
