2.17.11 ~ 48/365

17 Feb

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I’m trying to learn Photoshop. At a friend’s suggestion, I signed up for an online course (link is at the bottom of this post) to learn more. I’m so glad I signed up for this- we’re only 4 days into the class, but I’ve learned so many little tips and tricks!

I was never so excited to receive homework as I was for this course. Our first “assignment” was to take a picture and add text to it. As soon as I saw this picture of a tiki man that I took at a “surf museum” that phriend and I visited, I knew I had to pair it with the quote from the Brady Bunch episode where the Brady’s visit Hawaii and Bobby finds the “tabu idol”. I also added some retro brush stamps from a brush pack I downloaded. I thought it added that “Brady 70’s” feel to it.

Here was my first attempt at adding text– I liked it at first, but now I feel that it’s lacking something. I don’t know what though…lol.
(Note-I cheated- this picture is from two years ago. But it begged to have these Fifth Dimension lyrics added to it)
