Blog about journaling...journal about blogging...


Ok, this is getting a bit surreal... for the current GPP Street Team Crusade we are challenged to take a blog entry and journal about it in our Visual Journal... my first attempt is a digital take on it... will try a cut, paste and glue one later. I like how this one turned out. I'm loving using the brushes in Photoshop (and you don't have to clean them out when you are done!). The new typefaces are really fun... go to DaFont.com to get TONS of REALLY cool and (even better) FREE fonts... Love 'em... this was fun... wanna do more... but can we get caught in a temporal time loop by blogging about journaling and then journaling about blogging? Just curious! If you want to participate, go to: http://michelleward.typepad.com/how_cool_is_that/2008/01/crusade-no-16-j.html?cid=96222100#comment-96222100

Pam - great page! Dafont is my favorite site, for alphabets and dings. And I know what you mean about brushes! It does seem circular to blog about journaling, journal about blogging, and then blog about journaling again. My point with this crusade is to get bloggers to realize they shouldn't be neglecting their real journals and making an entry on paper about something you already blogged about would be a good jumpstart.

Again, great job Pam. Thanks for sharing with the team.

I'd love to learn how to use brushes...I need to find a good tutorial...do you know of one?

Your page looks great, I love the colors and fonts!

Stephanie,
here's a good place for tutorials:
http://www.veredgf.fredfarm.com/
you can also do a search for photoshop tutorials or photoshop brushes and will get lots of good hits. It depends on the types of looks you like. I have only begun to scratch the surface of what you can do... never seem to have the time to learn as much as I'd like to. Thanks for stopping over!

You ladies are so talented, I can't wait to get my hands on photoshop! I start a computer art class tomorrow, maybe I will be able to make banners half as well as you!

Dear Pam,
I love your journal, it's so cool.

What a cool page - I would've never thought art journaling could be done digitally and maybe it's not art journaling at all, but it sure looks very cool. Love the layout and use of different fonts!

Great page!

Wowza! Love the fonts...so now you have me wondering how I can fit in learning more about Photoshop too! Thanks for sharing and going round the blog-journal loop at least once!
Hugs,
