I have been playing with digital collage and what what fun! I am in love with it and have many plans. One of which is a line of cards. There is a new printer in my house that will print on art papers of all kinds, the inks are archival, lots of cool options. This afternoon I printed a test postcard and voila! It worked. The colours were gorgeous. Now I am hunting for a paper stock supplier etc.
Also I spent a little time today editing a few photos with the freebie Picasa. I liked that as well. I had been using Photoshop Elements but in a very limited way. My brain just can't seem to grasp the whole time consuming layers thing. So I am on a search for a program that will have cool effects with less effort. Simplicity is something I crave!
