I really enjoy working in Adobe Photoshop Elements messing around with images. I just ordered Susan Tuttle's new book - Digital Expressions:Creating Digital Art With Adobe Photoshop Elements, can't wait to get it! In the mean time I have been scanning the pages of an old catalog I found. It must be from the late 1800's or early 1900's. I can't find a date anywhere but it's from Chicago, Ill. I'm amazed at some of the items in it, female items to musical instruments. A sterling silver tea set is $5.50. In looking at some of these items, I thought they would make wonderful digital brushes. I won't try to tell you how to do it, there are many articles online by people who are more knowledgable than I am, I am just learning, hit and miss.
I did add some musical notes, just taken from an old music sheet.
I've put them on a little large so you can see them, but I think they would be wonderful added to an old digital photo. As I experiment I hope to show more items!
