Just a Blue Note

Hey People!  It would seem that fall has finally hit our little neck of the woods.  It's dreary out, raining and rather cold for this part of California! haha

I thought I would share a card that I made that wasn't chosen for another project. 


I spent my ENTIRE morning trying to figure out how to make a slide show video of the steps to make this card using Photoshop elements.  Got a video made, but the slides were all blurry!  I need to figure out what size settings to use for videos!  After much frustration, I resorted to using Picassa.  Much more user friendly, I must say. 

So, here is a picture video of the process.  Be kind...remember I have spent all day trying to get this to work and am beyond frustrated with technology at this point, LOL!! 



I'm off to watch the oldest Kiddo play in the season's first basketball scrimage.  The NBA may be on lockout, but the school season is soon to start!!

Till next time.............remember that trying something new may be frustrating (grrrrr on technology) but it keeps you on the path of exploring something new!

Starla, that note card looks freaking AMAZING! Sorry the slide show was such a pain in the behind. Thanks for showing us how to re-create this beautiful look.
Hugs and smiles

This card is beautiful, Starla!! I love how you made the video. It never occurred to me to even try that. I have PSE. If it's that much of a pain, I still may not be trying this!

I think you did great on the video! Although it might be frustrating to learn new things, at least you are giving it your all. Once you get it down it's smooth sailing. Hope you have a great weekend!

I don't know why this wasn't chosen, because it's just stunning. I love it. Since I'm on my way to work, I'll be checking out your slideshow tonight (right after I clean my craproom :-).
