OBSERVATIONS: It's been a slow week here on the blog. Kids are on Spring Break. I'm trying to break in some new specs, and that means less time staring at the computer. It's good for me every once in awhile, right?
Last week's Project Life included many shots of Aidan's birthday party, a smaller scale event than in year's past, and exactly what my girl wanted to do. A dinner party and games for teens. Love that. I never did anything like that as a teen, come to think of it. I hope her parties, the ones she has planned and put on over the years, become warm and fuzzy memories for her.
I feel like I'm having trouble focusing on my shots for Project Life. Meaning, they aren't as in focus as I would like them to be. Or is that just this new prescription talking?
Here's the actual file of the clean table photo from above. I love finding ways to drop type onto a photo, and it works well with big, dark expanses like this. I also love when my scraproom/dining room table is clean. It rarely lasts. (And yes, that bit white splotch? Someone watered a plant there and forgot that the pot leaks.)

Side note: Cole said he will never allow me to record him doing either his Creed or Eddie Vedder impression. Sigh. Those privacy-lovin' teens!
And that is all I wrote for Week Twelve.
Clean & Simple: The Workshop starts one week from today! I'm nervous and excited to kick off a whole new type of workshop for me. This is the first class I've ever done that has been heavily video tutorial-based and I can't wait to start connecting with students and helping them learn to use Photoshop Elements to build beautiful, well designed, hybrid layouts. Registration closes on April 10. Remember, once you sign up for any Big Picture class, you have permanent access to the classroom and materials. So, if you're not sure you can keep up, honestly, you can work through the material at your own pace. Hope to see you there!
