Back in the Saddle Again

*does little belt grasping, four step, square dance* Sorry, that always makes me want to dance.

Life has gone back to normal. Or a semblance of normal anyway. Because I mean, really, what is normal? Certainly not a word I’m very familiar with. After a night of having my brain function too fast for me to actually keep up with, I dulled my thoughts with a little fun in Photoshop. Ahh, the wonderful world of digital art. I can spend HOURS just looking through pictures, digital paintings, photo manipulations, etc. I’m trying to learn new techniques, how to match colors better, etc. Maybe I can use it one day to create my own full weblayouts/blogger templates. I’d need the coding, but that’s pretty accessible nowadays. It’s a thought.

One thing I’m newly obsessed with. Patterns. Ohhh, patterns. They’re so purdy. And they come in different colors and shapes. Lines, circles, old fashioned, retro. The selection is about as endless as it can get. And they add a wonderful level of dimension to art. Even talking about it is making want to open Photoshop! See? MUST RESIST.

I also opened my WIP today, after a day of absolutely no writing yesterday. I felt like a slacker. But in the end, I think the day of distance paid off. I started writing again today. Haven’t done much, but it’s a start. 🙂 Let’s see where it takes me.

  1. I have not yet mastered Photoshop. Too many buttons. LOL I do love to tinker with it from time to time, and it’s kinda therapeutic isn’t it? That aside, glad things are back to normal, and I hope you’re having a great day! 🙂

  2. Uh, oh, I need 14 of Thursday Thirteen. I like digital art too. I have PSP. I can seriously lose track of time when I get that open and going too.

  3. I just got back to writing after two days of not doing a WORD, and yes, I guess the distance has been good for me… at least I’m getting something done today… sort of. 😉

  4. Cora, it’s complicated, but the payoff is totally worth it. Plus, it’s such a great form of therapy. Annalee, I avoid it if I’m in a writing pinch. I’ll be on it all day not even realize it!Great job, Lisa! Keep it up, you’re doing great!
