Chicago Journal

Well I have finally finished my judging course. I will mail it to my tutor tomorrow when I can get to the post office. This has been a long two year haul and I am glad to be finished, well subject to Module 6 being signed off that is (keep your fingers crossed for me).

Now it's time to play. I went to America earlier this year and took a lot of photographs when we visited from Chicago to Kentucky and back again. I want to make a Journal of my journey and so I have started playing with some of the photographs I took in order to incorporate them in the journal.

Here is the first one:

This one was taken from the top of the Sears building in Chicago. I have some wonderful pictures from there. I am going to look through them and follow Gloria's tutorial on her blog as they are panorama type shots.

I played around with the photograph in Paint Shop Pro and then had a further play around with it in Corel Painter Essentials 4. This is the result. I think this will look great printed on fabric. I have treated some Evolon and plan on using that and this image for the front of the journal. I will post pictures of my progress.

Thanks for dropping by.
