something new i learned…

I tried “color splash” for the first time!

I chose this specific assignment from DS106

I went on google images and just typed in the first thing that came to mind ..nails!       found this bdfc4c717a1d36c3899aca6ba009dab5

I then chose the first tutorial

Mistake!!! I realized i didnt have Photoshop elements 11, which is what this tutorial was based on.

Then moved on to this tutorial

Started off really well, i got to select the image , following all directions but for some reason one part the tutorial was describing wasn’t showing up for me (“Enhance”). So i decided to try youtube…found this

images  why didnt i think of it sooner!

3 mins later i had this :bdfc4c717a1d36c3899aca6ba009dab5

I thought this was really cool so wanted to try it on another picture.

This picture was drawn by one of my students for our board ,honoring women’s history month. I believe the wording i put color to empowers the message of our board. We encourage our students everyday to follow their dreams and they can do anything they put their mind to. This was just added as a lovely reminder. =)

P.s. finally figured out how to add color to my post. Fellow designer guided me. Next goal: font..
