Anniversary

Today is my 1 year wedding anniversary. I'm feeling a little sappy so I'm posting what I'm aspiring to turn into an anniversary or I love you card for my shop.  Getting away to the woods & camping is something my husband and I love to do and in our world there's nothing more romantic than sitting in front of a lovely fire. Here's my ode to the adventures of marriage.

Making pictures come to life

This is my first attempt at making my paintings come to life and learning how to make animated movies in photoshop and little quirky gifs out of my paintings.  I made the first one on makeagif.com which is easy and you can use it if you don't have photoshop. The second one I actually made the animation myself in photoshop using the animation window. I could have played with it for hours, changing all the time sequences of the blinking eye but I stopped myself after a few tries.
 I had a lot of fun with this, the pictures take on a whole new feeling when they start to move. They are a little creepy because only the eyes are moving and they aren't smiling as was the trend in the old days but that's what I was going for!

In other news. I'm re-instating this as my blog, for frustrating reasons with dwindling traffic and being forced to shell out way too much money for generating traffic and other customer service issues I have with my new webhosting company.
