My dad used to call me Hard-Way-Heumphreus (yeah, when I was married 31 years ago it wasn’t hard to give up all those vowels). When I decide to learn something new I don’t want to read the book or take the tutorial or even watch the YouTube video all the way through. Does this create an eensy weensie bit of frustration? YES. Does that cause me to change my ways? Um, no. I guess I’m a slow learner.
All that is to offer a pitiful explanation regarding my latest absence: I have been trying to teach myself Photoshop. Specifically, how to create a watermark in Photoshop Elements 10. For the Mac. I kept finding videos that used previous generations of PSE. I would get to a certain point and get stuck and all the click-alt-commanding in the world wasn’t getting me what I wanted. And I got cranky…for a little while.
But I have projects to show you and the stubborn part of me decided that tonight I Would Win. And I did 🙂
It’s getting late and oh, did I mention I’ve been having a DISCUSSION with Photoshop?? So I’m not going to post the full details, but if you really want them leave me a comment and I’ll fill in the blanks. This is the Petite Pocket die with the the fabulous Frightening Feline stamp (not at all frightening and only $.8.95!) embossed in Tangerine Tango.
Let me save you a little trouble, too. The only candy bar I found that fit into the Petite Pocket is the….drumroll please…Heath Bar!!! You guessed it? Seriously?? I’m very impressed. You could substitute Pixie Stix or maybe some Halloween minis or beef jerky (but UGH why would you want to do that??) – I like chocolate.
The battle is not entirely over. Photoshop is playing with me – I’ve discovered I saved the files in the wrong format for WordPress. But I made the watermark, and I got the photo into the post, and that’s good enough for this stubborn stamper tonight. Tomorrow’s another day, Miss Scarlet. Let’s just hope I remember it all.
