Roy Lichtenstein I Ain't...

Plllllllllllt, that was my day. I mean it was just one of those days where everything was harder than it should be. Took the kiddos to the park, it was so cold and windy. They didn't want to be there, and they didn't want to leave...pretty miserable. Get home, feed kiddos lunch and start them down for naps. The Little Man just wouldn't go down. I mean he was yelling like someone was pinching him. Blah blah blah...just a day.
I was trying, during nap time to learn some new Photoshop. Trying, because I have it in my head that one day, I will be able to have some sort of career again. I want to stay home with my babies, but one day, they will go to school. I would like to have something for me again when that happens. My plan (pipe dream) is to be a freelance graphic designer. Right now, during naps, I try to learn more Photoshop. I want to be able to draw more with this program. Mastering the Pen Tool just vexes me! I bought a new book, while I like the book, it doesn't always take me exactly where I need to go. Stroke the path, great...I know how to stroke the path, but how do I make that stroke thicker? Can I control the thickness of that stroke...I don't know. It just peeves me.So this is what I drew in Photoshop today.I look at it and see things I want to change, and I'm not sure how. I see shortcuts I didn't take, because I don't know how...Bottom line, I need to work more with the stupid, vexing Pen Tool! Blah!!! What do you see???

  5. Hope today is better! If I had not gone into journalism I was going to go into graphic design. It's definitely the kind of career you can do from home (and be a mama!)

  8. I am still living under a rock over here at my house - I don't know a thing about photo shop. I think it looks great!

    Thanks for coming over and leaving such a nice Anniversary wish. Take care and see you soon. Kellan

  10. Oh wow, I see way, way more than I could ever manage! It's really cute!

    I want photoshop, but I'm afraid it will be like my fancy camera - it'll do things I am likely never to actually make it do.
