{{Laura at 52Flea interviewed a European artist here and when I read the words quoted above, they called to me…I loved those words…it's so easy in life to stay in our safe little comfort zones, but we all know that real growth comes when we step outside those carefully guarded perimeters of "safe"…}}

The little single pink rose was a summer gift that appeared on one of my rose bushes this summer. But learning how to glam up this photo was a direct result of learning a few of the basic manuevers in Photoshop Elements. Of course, I have to mention that there are also several layers of Kim's new magic pack textures applied to this photo as well…

…her newest textures that I am totally in love with….

"Technical" things like computers, sophisticated remote controls (!), blackberry's, elaborate software programs, etc. all give me major fits. I am not gifted at all in the world of technical. Photoshop Elements fell into this same category……….it was like reading Greek. And I don't read Greek. So if my latest posts are making me sound like a Kim Klassen groupie…..I only have this to say…..I admit it. I have become an avid fan……..she taught me the gift of using photoshop.

If I can learn PSE, anyone can…so when I read that Kim is offering a FREE Beginner's class to Photoshop, I had to share this information. And if you didn't already know it, Adobe also offers a FREE 30 day trial download to PSE. Check it out here.

One thing that I am pretty decent at though, is math. And free + free = FREE! So what do you have to lose?

I dare you……
