This is the journal of my "Year Long Journey of Creative and Self Discovery." Earlier this year I found myself running in circles and struggling to find a direction. I was challenged by a friend to commit to a blog for one year. She encouraged me to develop a weekly structure, and to post every day, even if I have nothing to post.
Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given to you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now, and perhaps without even knowing it, you will live along some distant day into the answers. - Rainer Maria Rilke

Tonight I got a chance to take my inspiration photo and play with some Photoshop Filters. There are so many ways to enhance and edit photos in PS. A great way to learn how the effects can change your photos is to just try them out...if you don't like what it does, Command-Z OR use smart filters and just delete them or hide visibility. You can also layer the effects to create more options for your images.
Neon Glow....now we just need a little green
to celebrate Mardi Gras!
One of my favorites is the glowing edges. You've gotta love the black with bright color outlines! If you feel inspired and experiment with your photos, please share them on the Visual Tapestry Flickr group. Donna posted some great photos last week using color adjustments.
