What I Did This Weekend

This weekend I've worked on mastering Photoshop and working on a couple layouts (above). We are babysitting our grandcats this weekend too. Rented a couple of movies, one of which I highly recommend: August Rush. It was one of the best movies I've watched in some time.

What Color Palette Are You?

Here is something kind of fun from The Voice of Color at Porter Paints: The Color Sense Game It gave me color combinations for rooms that I am really drawn to. I am Leather, Stone & Wood harmony, which means that I am at ease with the strengthof natural substances. My secondary harmony family is water beads, meaning I am drawn to the refreshing and peaceful blues that will create the calm I crave (I crave calm??). Give it a try.

Here is a palette I would like to do my living room in:

Creative Dry Spell

I've been having a creative dry spell when it comes to scrapbooking. I have spent most my free time trying to create a scrap page of the girls with "The Beast." This I think is my fifth attempt and I am finally happy with it.

My Weekend

Yesterday, after going to the gym for Turbo Kick, I came home and scrubbed floors and then took the three hounds to the vet for shots, heart worm testing, and two of the three needed their anal glands taken care of (gross out story of the week), all for only $210. Came home and putzed around the house and then we went out to eat at Macaroni Grill. Afterwards we went to the book store across the parking lot and I bought Tim Shelbourne's "Photoshop CS3 Photo Effects Cookbook" with 53 easy-to-follow recipes for digital photographers, designers, & artists (which I am not). Stayed up until 1 a.m. this morning playing around with turning digital photographs into watercolor paintings. This is pretty amazing stuff and I highly recommend this book.

This morning I completed my two-page spread from kite flying last April. It is pretty plain, but let me know what you think. All the same supplies as in my previous listing were used.
