A Posy for You!

Today is my 100th post! So, I took some photos of the crocuses in the glorious sunshine we are having to day. And although I have plenty of other things to do :-P I taught myself how to do layers in paintshops pro and made a collage of images.

Or in other words, a posy to celebrate Spring and 100 posts.

GIVE AWAY:
If you leave your name, I will select one next week and send a little something.! I am not sure I can do handmade at this point, but you might get a fancy thread or something!

Notice: I am doing the draw on 25th Feb. So, if anyone is still wanting to leave a message, now's your chance. I am thinking you might get a bit of my rust dyed fabric from which I made the award winning skirt design! You can see it in the first part of this page.

Congratulations, Sandy, 100 posts! I halfway there, I just checked.... mine is 50.

The posy is lovely, learning Photoshop can be real fun [and time consuming] ;O)

Your collage is great.
Funny, just recently I finally worked (simple.simple) with layers in Photoshop.
Next to learn are masks.

Febr. 25 is my birthday, so a fine day for everything :-)

love what you did with the photos. I haven't played that much with my pictures yet and I don't have Photoshop...pout...

Congrats on 100 posts also

Sandy said...

Hi Judy, I don't have photoshop either. this is Paintshop Pro, which I understand isn't as expensive. However, what do I know? I get what my husband decides to put on my computer!

Loving all the comments! Don't be strangers the rest of the time!!
Thanks,
Sandy

crocuses! Here is Maine we have snow up to the first floor windows. Congrats on your 100 post.
I don't post on any regular basis, just when I have a quote I like or finished a quilt or painting.

the gimp is free software you can use to play with your images. You can get it from http://thegimp.org/ it is what I use.

Well done on 100 posts.

Whups, I go the URL wrong, it should be

Sorry folks. At least the other one doesn't go anywhere bad.

Hi Sandy,
Congratulations on your 100th post. Loved the collage especially since it is of crocuses- I live in Manitoba whose official provincial flower is the Prairie Crocus, but no blooms yet since we are still under many feet of snow...

Debbie said...

Nice work on the photo, Sandy! Congratulations on your 100th post. I've got a long way to go, I just started my blog in January. It's been a lot of fun! http://debbiesfiberwork.blogspot.com

Impressive! Love the crocuses! I've used only Microsoft Picture It until now. Have Photoshop on new computer, but no time to learn to use it. We're having spring one day followed by winter in
Virginia.

Congratulations on 100 posts!!

It is so easy to get caught up with the photo programs. I've been teaching myself Photoshop Elements this year.

MRose said...

Love your posy pic. No crocuses around here, but our azaleas will be popping soon.

Antonija said...

The crocuses are beauiful, as is your collage. Makes me anxious for ours to pop out...althought that won't be for MONTHS! Well, a month, anyway...
And congratulations or your 100th post! Well done!
