Today I figured out how to make an image that looks like hair or scratches using Photoshop CS4. So, I decided to share with all my friends and fans (both of you).
First, I’m not sure if this will work in any other version of PS, so YMMV . If you know of a different/better/easier way of doing this, feel free to share!

Today’s tutorial is on how to create a button bouquet. Button bouquets have become a fun alternative to fresh flowers, both for weddings and for general decorative purposes.

Well, hello again! Having had to deal with this site getting hacked, it has taken me a while to figure out what to do next. It appears that I may have lost all of my previous posts. So…. I guess it’s time to start over. We’ll see how that goes.
In the meantime, I’m pretty sure I have cleaned up all the malware that use to be here. If you find something else, please do let me know.
Time to get back to vacation….!
