Digital Artistry

Have you noticed recently  – on Facebook or Pinterest – the beautiful “painted” and “sketched” images people are posting? I’ve always wondered how those stunning images are done, so I convinced my good friend, Cilenia Curtis, to share her techniques with me. Holy cow! Take a look at these images from my trip to Greece and Italy about five years ago.

I know there are probably lots of ways to accomplish these effects in Photoshop/Photoshop Elements, but Cilenia’s techniques are so easy, you’ll churning be out digital beauties in no time! Luckily for you, Cilenia is teaching her very affordable Digital Artistry class at Scrapanner’s from April 7th – 25th! The workshop Includes
