Lots of good stuff!!!!!!!

Ok, today I am bullet listing. Because there is so many things I want to say. Bullets are good. amen.

1. I AM TAKING THIS CLASS!!!!! because i think we can never ever know enough:

Kayla Aimee is teaching a new photo editing class for Scrap In Style TV with Amber Ulmer of Ulmer Studios. The class is a 5 day class that works for both Photoshop Elements and Photoshop users. If you don't have those programs, you can always download a free 30 day trial from Adobe to use with the class and test out the programs.

The class covers photo editing basics such as cropping, lighting, and retouching but what I am most excited about is the airbrushing portion. I promise, it's not hard. I do it on my Christmas cards every year! We'll show you how to get flawless skin, slim down areas or um, enhance certain areas. And the best part is that we'll show you really easy ways to do cool color washes on your photos both with and without using actions. You'll learn black and white conversions, cross processing conversion, vintage conversions, bright color conversions and more. Plus, we'll also give you a free Old Rockstar action as a bonus for taking the class!

The class runs from March 30-April 3 and is $19.95 (If you're a SIStv Facebook Fan you can take $2 off!) and will have screen-capture video tutorials alongside written tutorials so that you can follow along with the process!

You can learn more about the class as well as enroll in it by clicking here!


2. I think TODAY is the day that Making Memories will show my video on their blog... if you want to be on the look out for it... and once it's up go and leave a comment on it and come back here and tell me just how funny my accent were... he-he...i will enter your name in a draw and you can win a beautiful MM goodie box. And when I say beautiful, i mean beautiful. So you get it? It's like a treasure hunt. (it's almost easter you know... we might as well start practicing.


3. I am a Matt Giraud fan. After last night performance it's official. Who's your favorite?



4. Lastly, here is another page I did with the Making Memories just chillin' papers and things. If the picture looks a little blurred, it's because it is blurred. I loved the idea of motion. Believe me... in those tap classes it's all they do. They are really incredible.

I hope my bullet posts made the reading a little easier. I am doing the art class at the school again today... something I totally LOVE to do.

I LOVE this scripture... Psalm 68: 19 that says Blessed be the Lord, Who bears our burdens and carries us day by day, even the God Who is our salvation! Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

Have a wonderful and productive day. And remember to play along. I do love you all a great bunch!

Love and a kiss

Wilna

Wonderful little video--cute hat and I think your accent is adorable. Oh yea, I am with you on Matt, he is amazing. The Idol men this year are so good it is hard to pick my absolute favorite.

I am thinking about signing up for that Photo Editing class. I don't have PhotoShop yet, but am saving towards it and this this would be a great way to learn the how to's.

Pam Dean said...

Beautiful hat. Your accent is very understandable- not like some! So don't worry about it! I wish my granddaughter was still young enough to enjoy something like this. Thanks for sharing how to make it.

Wilna,
That hat is great and so easy. Thanks for the idea. And as usual, I love your accent. I could listen to you talk all day.

vic said...

Great accent Wilna! I was surprised by it though :) Love the hat, video, music and adorable little princess at the beginning. Also a big TFS your faith.

Completely unrelated to this post, I wanted to tell you that I tried to make chicken korma for dinner tonight. I don't know--maybe I did something wrong, but it was very bland, despite having tons of spices in the mixture. You love, so tell me, what is it SUPPOSED to taste like, if made correctly?

jacqui said...

Melissa said...

I know...this is my 3rd comment on this post. But I felt that because you "enabled" me to purchase that class, I needed to share something with you. ;)
This kit actually made me think of you. I think it would match your style! (plus, its on sale) ;)
