APOS! Inspiration Team!

I am so excited to share my wonderful news! I applied to be on the APOS! Inspiration Team again and I was selected along with 5 other talented ladies. We all have our own style and we hope to inspire everyone on the forum in our own way. If you haven't checked out the forum yet I encourage you to do so. They are a wonderful group over there and I am proud to call all of them my friends. To get to the forum you can click on my APOS! blinkie at the side and it will take you right there. Don't forget to introduce yourself while you are there. No worries we don't bite. :)

Online Photoshop class

I have always wanted to learn how to use Photoshop but never found the right online course for me to learn the basics. Then over at A PILE OF SCRAP forum they announced they were going to have an online course to learn the basics of photo editing. One course was using Photoshop and the other one used a free program. I jumped at the chance to learn how to do a few things with photoshop. I had a blast learning and wanted to share a few photos with everyone to see what I can now do. Now these are along a few of the things we did in the class. Even though the class is over you can still head over to the forum and sign up since they have now left it as an open class that you can take at any time. If you are looking to learn the basics in photoshop I highly recommend taking the class. Cori-lyn did the tutorials and she is fantastic at explaining things so you can understand.

This photo I cropped, changed to black and white and added some test. These are some of the lovely ladies from the APOS forum. I got to meet them last August while we were in New Brunswick visiting family.
