self portrait

Ok, I'm feeling a little nervous here...I must confess. Sure, I could show you photos of all the great new stuff I added to the snapcrafty shop today. That would be easy. But, I'm going to show you a little piece of my soul instead. I don't claim to be an artist by any stretch of the imagination. I'm learning more and more every day, building my Photoshop muscles up. Here's a little glimpse into what types of things I have been learning to do in my design classes. My little self portrait. The story is that I had my husband take some photos of me lying in the grass. I thought it would reflect my love of nature and biology. Then I got the idea to cover my face in a grass texture. Through many, many iterations of this idea this is what I got.  I had fun with it and learned some new tricks. That's what it's all about.

  1. That's awesome! You have some serious Photoshopping skills. I love how the eyes stand out against the grassy background.
