trying photoshop  
well i meant to get an earl(ier) night tonight but somehow i wound up playing with photoshop, which i have actually never really known how to use properly before (i think i am scared of it). i have plans to make an online travelogue for when i go to england and i thought i would make a layout by hand, cut & paste style and scan it in because i am *that* scared of using photoshop (after seeing some of the amazing creations people like you design !) but i ended up making this and i think perhaps i like it?

if you have time, tell me what you think? the darkened section close to the middle is where the text will go, of course. probably in white, it shows up the best on there. but be honest? it's my first time using photoshop for something other than just scanning in pictures.

if i end up using it i'll have to remember how to slice images and use frames etc to code it, ick.
but if there are any suggestions on how i can improve it, tell me?
as for brushes and the like, i have no idea. i'm actually a bit embarrassed to admit that, considering.
oh well. sleep time
{goodnight stars}

oh, jade, it's beautiful! :) i mean it!! i'm afraid of photoshop too and haven't yet been brave enough to play with it as you have. so, i couldn't give you any tips other than to keep doing whatever your doing. keep in mind that if you aren't making mistakes, you're not learning - something i try to remember throughout the day... it's an important aspect of everything in life, i think.

ps: love your icon. <3 i just saw the latest peter pan movie over the weekend. i fell instantly in love. :) it's the best film version of that wonderful story i've come across so far.

i would've maybe put a glow on the text, i'm not sure if photoshop can do it since i'm afraid of it too and use only paint shop pro. or make the dates text slightly brighter, they tend to disappear into the layout. other than that I think it's VERY beautiful.

That is beautiful. Much better than I can do. Photoshop is rather intimidating. <3
