I'm still awake

I doubt I'll be able to stay up all day after not going to bed at all last night but I needed to get out of the house so I worked for a while this morning and then headed to the coffee shop with my computer.

I'm taking another online class - more digital scrapbooking. The first class is making a layout using a photo that has been selectively recolored. I chose this one of Mom that I took in December when we took flowers to Dad's grave - there was just something about the red of her coat that struck me.

I put a binding on the Polar bear & Penguin quilt and started assembling the blocks on the design wall. I really want to start a new quilt but so far I'm resisting.

The photo is so dramatic with that technique. I really love it. My new camera has a setting to allow me to take photos like that. Guess I'd better learn more about how to do that.

What class are you taking?

This photo is one of those that speaks a thousand words.

My camera has a setting to take photos like this. They really are striking.

You got me started on this late last fall, now I'm taking this class too- it must be the same, as I had to turn a photo to sepia and then colorize one section, too. I'm enjoying it, so thanks for letting us all know about it.
