"Serenity at the Beach" is the theme we have been playing around with for the past week-just having some fun while we wait for the remaining few people to sign up for the workshop. If you haven't signed up yet-there is more information below and a few more spots left. We are learning how to create layers of "Story Telling Montages" using blending modes in our software. The lessons are geared for the beginner to intermediate, but you must have some knowledge of how your software works. I have also shared some very basic lessons written in PSE6 with the workshop group, to help them get warmed up for the coming themes. The lessons are written in very basic step by steps, with plenty of photos, charts, color wheel, shared textures and lots of fabulous links for free downloads. Come join us!
This layout combined a texture of some beautiful turquoise peeling paint, with a new layer of baby blue, blended with a fabulous vacation photo of a sandcastle and pavilion. The lettering is from a vintage catalog of boys dress suits, but after changing all the wording around, it's now a poster advertising boys swimming suits, priced below regular London prices. :-D
For more information and to sign up for this 1st workshop in a series of 5-or sign up for all 5-go to: DigitalMontageStudios

My digital kits have been selling which is a real blessing in this economy! As soon as my cold makes me less groggy, and my computer woes are (hopefully) cleared up, I plan on creating some more mixed media digital kits. The ideas are simmering....

Cynthia Powell is contemplating doing another year long workshop based on the art projects we featured in our latest book-Exploring the Latest Trends in Mixed Media Art-Vol. II. If you have purchased this book and would like an invitation to participate in this on-line monthly workshop-please sign up here! This workshop will take place in another yahoo group set up special just for this endeavor. Just like I did for the Mary Todd Beam and Julia Andrus book-workshops! Each month a new art project will be created by the members-each project is unique to the book-but you will be able to put your own spin on things! This workshop will start June 1st-provided I have at least 25 people signed up! I look forward to seeing you there!
Email me at: email@example.com if you are interested and I will give your name and email addy to Cindy.

My Yahoo group Arttechniques is doing a postcard swap with an Alice in Wonderland theme this month. Cynthia Powell has several great digital kits featuring Alice and friends.
This is the month that spring arrives! Some of my bulbs have already bloomed! I am looking forward to the longer days and (hopefully) drier weather! I am ready to hit the links on a more regular basis without getting soaked slogging through the wet fairways!
