I'm going to take this opportunity to share my PSP history with all of you since Dianna picked this journal as one of her choices. I am in my rookie stages of PSP, very rookie. Shelly (Roxy)Roxy's Graphics2 sent me PSP 7 back in December. It blew my mind. She patiently taught me layering and the basics. I was so lost. She then sent me PSP 9, which I'm using now. The Animation Shop was totally mind blowing. I put that on hold for quite a while. D from D's Designs D's Designs and This and That Hockey This and that, and hockey! spent a good bit of time helping me with glitter and twinkles. D also lends her honest, constructive criticism which I appreciate. That's the only way to learn. I had to take a month away from PSP when my computer blew on me. I've been back for two weeks now and plugging away.
I started this graphics journal for my own benefit to begin with. I wanted to watch for signs of improvement. I didn't advertise when I started it because I was so green and the tags were pretty crude. I still think they are so-so at times. I sort of have my own unique style...LOL...if you want to call it that. I don't use typical backgrounds. I will take a flower like above and use it. Sort of odd but that's me...I do unusual, I guess you could say.
I also do PSP for relaxation. Many times, I will create a tag to fit my mood for the day. It's sort of a safety valve that keeps me from blowing.
The tags are created with the help of the many talented folks who create the tubes, brushes, gradients, etc. that we who do PSP put together to make our own creations.
I feel honored that Dianna chose this journal but also very humble because I'm not even close to the level of creation that the many others who have graphics journals are at. I would like Angel, Angela and Anna's journals but I think most of J-Land has the links. Dianna has her own graphics journal. She is an artist. It shows in her creations. They are so lovely. Just Taggin' Along And Back Talkin' There is another lovely graphics journal out there by Diama, whose regular journal was chosen by Dianna. Chocolate Cherried Creations Diama/Cherry is 17 and suffers from sickle cell anemia. She is a rookie but you can't tell from her creations.
I want to thank all of you for visiting. Many of you have been with me from the beginning. I thank you for your kind comments and thank D for your e-mails that correct my imperfections, of which there are many. And a big thanks to D for sending me the Animation Shop again when I got my back up computer.
Keep visiting....I hope you will see even more improvement.
Thought I'd add my Pink Shoe creation. Sort of springy.....
