Saturday Star Spotlight

Seniors are doing a lot of exciting things and we're looking forward to featuring their impresssive accomplishments every Saturday in our Star Spotlight.

Fun and Unique

One of my favorite assignments for the Photoshop Elements Collage Class I teach for seniors here in Dallas is the "Nine Square Template." I always enjoy the the interesting combinations my students come up with to make each template unique.

This first one is done by Charlie Vinson, and as you can see there is a soft edge around each flower image. Then a straight edge around the subject of the collage, Doris, his mother-in-law, to make that picture stand out just a bit.

Here in Dallas we have an Arboretum that is truly beautiful. Each Spring and Fall they really spruce the place up and many people visit them. Here is a nine-square collage done by Ray Bolton from his visit there. It shows a nice representation of the many features this lovely spot has to offer.

And another image from Ray Bolton that is just for fun. He created the texture for the background and then added pictures of mighty cartoon warriors. My grandson will love this one!

Special thanks to Charlie Vinson and Ray Bolton for sharing their images with us on the blog!
