Harriet the dog

 From reading Lisa Crone's blog (A Bead A Day) that talked about Mandy's blog(Beads for Brains) which mentions Noah Scalin's book, 365 A Daily Creative Journal, I decided to make something everyday and the 1st thing that popped into my mind was photographic prints.

I spend a lot of time taking pictures, sharing them here and on Facebook but I rarely print anything, so I've challenged myself to print something daily and if the muse strikes me, write a poem too.

Libby made these really cute terriers in art class using material which can't go in recycling(?), looks like heavy paper board to me, but whatever!  And she asked me to take photos of them, so she could post them on her deviantart page.

Isn't it cute?  I used to read the book, No Roses for Harry by Gene Zion to my tow-headed little girl and as soon as I saw all those sweet roses on this pup, I flashed back in time. 

I did a little ps7 editing and voila...stained glass Harriet & haiku!

I've been procrastinating on using my photoshop 7 software and this "little" project is pushing me to work with my camer(Canon Rebel), my printer AND  PS7.

What do you think of Harriet?  What kind of photo editing software do you use?  Do you have a project or crafting preference? 

Color me curious,
Donna

  1. That's awesome Donna! I love the art you created that is really cool. You will love doing the 365 A Day Project, you will learn a ton in a short period of time if you keep at it. If you have Facebook, you should become a fan of the 365 Project page, some folks are doing incredible things with their projects! Good luck and I can't wait to see more!
