Photoshop Elements-Plastic Wrap!



I am so proud of myself, but you probably think I'm being silly, but I did it!! I actually created a one of a kind, undublicatable background in Photoshop! The reason I say it is undublicatable, is because I have no idea what it was I did, other than I had fun! It all started with a link to a place called Biorust that had free tutorials and while there I found a file with a remark that said-"for newbie level". That's me! :-D It was tutorial written by "Andantonius" and whoever you are, Thank You! I tried to follow your lead, but got lost in the all the fantastic things I could play with! I call this masterpiece, "Plastic Wrap" because this is almost the exact texture I would get if I had done this with acrylic paints & plastic wrap. I'm thrilled silly and ready to try something else, like adding a huge whale tail! LOL!

It's amazing and you did a fantastic job. You are going to be hooked on digital art now, beware the time just flies when you are doing this stuff. Kinda like your other art I bet :)

Great job, Cindy! Even if you can't figure out how to do it again, save it and you can always colorize it to any color you want it to be! *LOL*

Looks like you are having fun already. And the best part is you didn't get your hands dirty at all. Once you get into this it is hard to stop.

Oh noooooo, something ELSE to get lost in for hours at a time?!(#_@+ I think I'm going to let YOU get hooked on this one for a little while and I'll just watch all of your wonderful projects develop :-)

If I didn't have a *day job*, I think I could play all day every day!
