New Look- Welcome to Adventures in Photoshop.

It's a lazy Sunday afternoon. I cleaned my apartment. Cleaned my desk. Then I thought I'd give a new and brighter look to my blog. Feel free to comment on the new look.
I found a big list of  photoshop tutorials on Flickr.

You can check it out. I learned how to make a shadow. A much easier way to make a shadow is to go into EFFECTS and find the drop shadows. You have more control if you have a layer for each element on your art.


There are tutorials on making picture cubes. Then there's a tutorial on making an S2 wrap.

Very creepy picture of Audrey Hepburn.
As you can see I'm still working on the technique.
I added a clock to my blog. That way you'll always know what time it is in Vancouver. There are a few new links. I deleted a couple of blogs I follow to trim down the blog a bit. As you may have noticed it is slower to load lately. I'll see what else I can do to improve that.
Artwise I've been playing with time, so to speak. The scrappin cop has come out with new png of watch parts. I'll leave you with a couple.

I discovered a new use for metallic gradients. I used it on the clock face to give it a bit more depth. It's done with a metallic bulls eye gradient. Then reduce the opacity until you're happy with it.

For those of you who have slacked off seeing the dentist, there's the best tutorial I've seen in whitening teeth in photoshop.

It's easy peasy after a few tries.
