A little regrouping here as we set the pointer for this Monday and a look at the second quarter of 2013. Spring has not arrived. We may not even get a spring this year. But it is time to quit shivering and shoveling and get started with this next season whatever it looks like!!! The second quarter for me comprises April, May and June.
The theme for Spring is paper!
The Whole House Purge will be to reduce the stacks of paper that seem to accumulate. First up is the 'puter drawers. Then I shall grit my teeth, glare fiercely and tackle my bedside filing system (or lack there of) and finally the playroom.
This quarter's books focus on photography and PhotoShop Elements. I want to capture better images on paper and then manipulate them for collage papers. The three books are:
Photography & the art of seeing- Freeman Patterson
Digital Essentials- Gloria Hanson
Digital Expressions- Susan Tuttle
The classes projects come and go. I shall finish Printing the Journal in time to start Colour Love 101. The Getting Started basics class covers Deli Paper in April; Lettering in May; and June is Watercolours. I will have several kinds of papers on the go! ;^)
Then there are The Projects. The Finish A Long was hugely motivating and I hope to pick up where I left off and continue with more in this next quarter. I also want to do a Die Cut Scrap a long that will help me learn to use my die cutter and process a few scraps at the same time. This round of paper will be to check off items!!!
The directional pointer is set and the projects are in the planning stages. Let the process begin! 8^)
