Mix It Up Monday: Looking Up

I took this photo at Artful Journey last year and first shared it with you here.  I played around with a little Photoshop magic to alter the photo to what you see here now.  Have you visited Kim Klassen?  She shares the most wonderful Photoshop tips and tricks as well as free textures that she creates.  This piece includes the free texture she shared this past week as well as another layer of text I've added in for good measure.  There is soooooo much to learn when playing with textures in Photoshop.  What do you think?  I'd appreciate your feedback.  Be sure see the original so you can see the difference.  I've popped it up in my Etsy shop to see how it does.

So, I guess I haven't told you yet, huh?  I'm going back to Artful Journey this year!!!!  I actually leave two weeks from this Thursday (408 hours from now, but who's counting).  This year I'm taking Albie Smith's class.  Her classroom was right next to DJ's last year, so I got to walk over and take a peek every now and then.  Yummy color...  You can read about last year's trip in these posts.  Just a tad excited... :-)
