What We See with the Eyes

One of the most fun things I like to do is combine my calligraphy with different backgrounds with the magic of Photoshop. I wrote this quote a few days ago and scanned it and came across this little watercolor example that I painted while watching a Youtube video. I love watercolor and should pick up my brushes more often. I am rather busy right now filming the video lessons for my online calligraphy Zig marker class. I've got two completed so far but the editing process takes a while. I am using iMovie and it is a great program--but there is a learning curve. I am very curvy these days! I'm making progress and I will let you know when it will be available. Yikes--I'm excited but scared at the same.

Love your little watercolor posies with the calligraphy. I too should get out my watercolors more often and play with them.
Way to go on the online lessons. Taking that big step must be scary for you. You will do just fine!! Take care and have a good day!

And no worries, you'll do great with that tutorial movie, you do everything great!
