Blog changes and free textures

Thank you for all of the positive vibes on my first digital collage below. I appreciate it and am a bit surprised. I can't wait to figure out how to "cut" parts digitally. I would have loved to cut the background away from those little girls so you couldn't see the background around them.

I did a little face lift here to make my blog easier to read. I miss the black but this is growing on me.

So, I don't pretend to be a photographer - I know very little about it and the camera I have with me in Missouri is just a cheapy little camera that fits in my pocket (when I am not wearing my "skinny" jeans that is), but here are some pix I took in the last few days that I am going to put in a free to use folder on flickr - they might work okay for background layers or something. You can download them from here or flickr. If you send something in for publication or flickr using one of them, a credit to Tumble Fish Studio would be lovely but I won't sue you if you don't. I have found that some people offer such lovely things for people to use for free without any stipulations and then pretty soon someone else is getting credit for them because they share them too and the original owner gets lost along the way. That's why I always give credit for what I use.

Marsha! So glad to see you back in blogland again and glad to hear that your dad is doing ok. It's been wonderful to read/catch up on all you're up to. Hugs!

P.S. I have to admit that the new background is working better for me. Even though the black looked good, it did "vibrate" visually for some reason. But your legion of stalkers shall not be deterred! :)

I commented in Flicker but wanted to say here too that your textures kick it!! I am going to be doing some Photoshop tutorials on the blog. I'll show you how to remove the background:) Thank you for sharing these with us! Love, Jamie
