Playing and Learning

I love to learn and try new things.  Last night when I couldn't sleep I was catching up on some blog reading.  I visited Sew Many Ways by Karen and she had this post on creating a blog signature.  So I was reading the instructions and went to play in Photoshop.  I also had to call a friend who has used Photoshop for a couple of years to ask how o combine pictures. This is the first time I played with layers and I accidentally tilted it but boy do I like it. 

In case you are wondering that is the same block I have on my header and my blog background.  Just in bolder colors.  I call it Sun Gate.  I learned how to make this block in a class from Fran Gonzalez at Quilt University

If you want to see another cute blog signature check out Connie's Blog, she has a cat and a river in her signature.  Her kitties are always on her quilts.

I will have to do some more playing but now I need to clean my home.

Have a fun day and go learn or try something new!

Actually I only followed the first couple of steps, once I had my white paper in Photoshop, I just kind of played around. It wasn't hard but I am very comfortable around computers. If you need help let me know, I'll be glad to help.
