My Website

Have finished doing my website for class. Didn't get time to put ALL of my pictures on. Will finish it later. Had been on 1 month holiday. Last week was able to remember how to do the rollover images for the thumbnails on my web pages. Last week saved the images for web (as HTML file) and linked them to all of the thumbnails.
Hopefully I remember how to do it all when I want to finish it and host it online.

Glad to say I am confident at using DreamWeaver now. I hope the library has it on their computers here!

Hoping to do part-time Photography at NMIT next year.

Thanks Catherine. And thanks for the inspiration of the other students too.

Artist Book cover

Tried making the cover with Wood Veneer - but it just crinkled when ironed onto the paper. What a waste of Veneer. Will think of something else creative to do.
Solved the problem of pages being to thin. - sprayed glue on back of the nice paper and glued 2 sheets together, then cut it up to the sizes I wanted for my pages.

Artist Book

Don't like mock up of Artist Book that I did. Don't like raw edges of pages. I think it looks better with folded pages like Mum's (Mary's).

oops

had art class on Monday. Ran out of time to update this then. made a few silly mistakes while creating collage for a page in my artist book. I wonder if artists who do this full time ever stop making stupid mistakes and swearing a lot!

Oh, well. i didnt sell my sculpture.



Had one of my sculptures in an exhibition. Was hoping i wouldnt have to pick it up! The exhibition was the 2008 Women's Salon - at Counihan gallery - Brunswick Town hall.

Starting Artist Book

Sooo many photos and scanned images to use in my Artist Book. Difficult to choose which ones to use. I am going to make a circle fan book, with Veneer wood.

stupid computer

very frustrating. - was saving work done making Molly-dog technicoloured, and the computer froze. Had saved it earlier, so didnt loose everything. But need to do colours all over again.
Printed collage too.

Holiday

Had week off. Thinking about what else I can use photshop for. Going to create Andy Warhol-like canvas pictures of ours and friend's pets. Uploaded photos onto my USB from photos at home.

Digital Collage 2008

finished collage

Have finished my collage. Used many of the tools of Photoshop. But keep forgeting where the buttons are that I want to use to shrink image, for example. Need lots more practice.

another digital collage

Collage

Started creating a collage in Photoshop today. Scanned images from scrapbooks from other subjects, and a lace doily. Still trial and error using Photoshop. Not sure what I want to create. Hope it looks good in the end. Maybe I can use it for cover of my Europe Tour photo albumn. keep forgetting to keep original layer clean.

Just learned how to compress an image to save it for this web page.
