This is my fav!




I made this one its own post because I am rather proud of it. You know the moment when something you've been working so hard on finally clicks? Well, I had one of those moments while editing this pic. I became friendly with duplicating layers. I know, sounds elementary right? I finally grasped the concept!!! Let's all take a moment to clap for me :) Thank you, thank you very much. (I am now channeling Elvis.) Uh um...where was I? Oh, the layer thing. You may have noticed that my other edits look the same in the technique I used. That obvious huh? You were thinking that already? At least I am a self confessor! After becomming highly aggitated with not getting the effect I wanted, I ventured out on my own and discovered a method The Pioneer Woman has been trying to tell me: duplicate layers. Angels are now singing in the distance. You hear them too, right? Understanding this concept opens up a whole new world for me in PSE!!! I am so proud of myself. Yes, that is me bowing you see, no need to wipe your eyes.
